7 Famous TV Actors Who Couldn’t Make It Big In Bollywood
It’s tough to believe now, but movies were once regarded infinitely more valuable than television. There was no cross-pollination between TV stars and well-known actors. It was a major triumph when a TV entertainer “graduated” to include cinema.
In any event, television had reached its pinnacle at that point. Other than running duration, there is virtually no difference between TV and motion movies in today’s state-of-the-art streaming world. However, some TV personalities are unable to make the transition to film.
It’s difficult to say why this happens. Whatever the reason, it means they won’t be getting those big paychecks and fun summer jobs. A major chunk of the entertainers on this list are now performing well and will most likely appear on our televisions at some point in the future. You won’t be able to see them anytime soon in a venue near you. The following is a list of such entertainers.
Anita Hassanandani Reddy
Anita Hassanandani is an Indian actress who primarily appears in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil films and television series. Kkavyanjali on Star Plus, Shagun Arora in Star Plus’ Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, and Vishakha Khanna in Colors TV’s Naagin 3, 4, and 5 have all starred her.
Anita, who is both beautiful and incredibly talented, has been a familiar figure on Indian television in recent decades. Despite the fact that her film Kucch Toh Hai opposite Tusshar Kapoor failed to attract the public’s attention, what we colossally admire about her is that, despite her flopped film career, she never lost her foothold on television and is possibly the best star.
Hansika Motwani is an Indian actress who is most known for her roles in Tamil films. She has also appeared in Telugu films and has worked in Hindi, Malayalam, and Kannada films. Hansika featured in a number of Telugu films, beginning with Desamuduru, which was her maiden film and earned her numerous accolades, including a Filmfare Award.
Hansika was a child star who starred in the TV show Shaka Laka Boom Boom in the film Koi Mil Gaya, which we all liked. So we were taken aback when we heard she’d be the leading lady in Himesh Reshammiya’s infamous film Tera Surroor at the tender age of 16. The film, as well as her subsequent career in Bollywood as an adult, were both a failure. She is, nonetheless, a major star in the south.

Jay Bhanushali is an Indian television personality. He became well-known for his role in Ekta Kapoor’s Indian serial Kayamath, which aired on Star Plus.
Jay’s Neev in Kayamath was widely liked by his audience, making him a household name in the Indian television business. Platform No.6 was his dream Bollywood debut, followed by Hate Story 2 and Ek Paheli Leela. In any event, none of them gave him the celebrity we all expected he’d have. Thankfully, he’s back on the small screen.
Karan Singh Grover
Karan Singh Grover is an Indian model and entertainer who has appeared in shows such as Dill Mill Gayye and Qubool Hai on Indian television. In addition, he has appeared in the Indian films Alone and Hate Story 3. With Kitnii Mast Hai Zindagi and Dill Mill Gayye, Karan enthralled our little screens. However, it appears that his karma failed him when it came to his massive Bollywood enterprises.
Prachi debuted on television as the lead in the Zee TV serial Kasamh Se. Life Partner, Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, Bol Bachchan, and I, Me Aur Main are some of her notable credits. She is also a part of Goa Tourism India as an endorser, representative, and brand representative.
Desai is also the Lux Lyra brand spokesperson. We admire Prachi’s beauty in Kasamh Se, but we have yet to see her in a good role in a Bollywood film that allows her acting ability to shine.
Rajeev Khandelwal is an Indian performer, artist, and host who has appeared in films and on television. He began his acting career in the TV series Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat, in which he played the antagonist. In Kahiin To Hoga, his first every day sequence, he played the male lead. Following that, he appeared in a number of shows, including Time Bomb 9/11, Sun Leyna, Left Right Left, and Reporters (2015).
His first television production, Kahiin To Hoga, was a huge success, and his fan base grew with each role he took. As a result, we were ecstatic when he abruptly switched to movies. In any case, his films Left Right Left and Aamir both bombed at the box office. He was featured in a number of films, but none of them had the desired effect!
Shruti Seth is an Indian video jockey and entertainer. Her comic roles in a few network series and the Hindi entertainment scene have gained her more widespread recognition since she began her career as a TV show host.
We adored Jiya’s guiltlessness and amazing otherworldly abilities in Shararat, which led to a slew of opportunities in Bollywood, but no big roles. Despite appearing in a number of smaller roles in films, she has been unable to establish herself as a B-Town star.
