How has Bollywood Moved up To Cast Television Stars in Leading Roles?

With the success of Vicky Donor starring Ayushmann Khurrana and YamiGautam, the entry of television stars in Bollywood was something never expected. Both of these actors are known for their stints on television before making it big in the industry. But now the mindset of Bollywood directors and producers has also changed and now more and more budding stars from television are entering Bollywood. All thanks to the two stars of Vicky Donor thathave proved to be instrumental in changing the mindset of people across the industry.

The crossover to the big screen from the smaller one is no longer considered a taboo. Even the shows like Ayushmann Khurrana in Bangalore prove that the new trend now brings the fact that the actors like of Ayushmann and Yami would no longer be limited to the image of 'TV stars'.
There are many other TV stars that have made it to Bollywood. The list of the same is as under:
Pulkitsamrat –Known for his debut film - Bittoo Boss, he rose to fame after playing LakshyaVirani in the superhit show produced by EktaKapoor known as KyunkiSaasBhiKabhiBahuThi. Prior to that, he was even seen on the TV serial called as Sixer. It was not directly after the success of his role as Lakshya on KyunkiSaasBhiKabhiBahuThi, he got the opportunites but rather he had to wait for long time before finally getting his first Bollywood film. There were a lot of controversies which ensued after he left the soap opera and also lodged a court case against EktaKapoor. Though his fight with EktaKapoor led to several other tv production houses boycotting him, he still kept moving forward and got his first film – Bittoo Boss which didn’t do well on the silver screen either.

Ayushmann Khurrana – Known for his amazingly interesting movie - Vicky Donor which also happens to be his debut hit film. But the journey to this movie was not an easy one for Ayushmann. Initially he won the TV reality show MTV Roadies 2, worked as a radio jockey, got into a number of shows as anchor like India’s Got Talent, Music KaMahaMuqqabla and Just Dance. And then he became a part of the T20 Extra Innings during IPL 3 anchoring team. Ayushmann Khurrana in Bangalore has made his place in the industry as a trained theatre actor. In his movie, Vicky Donor, the director ShoojitSirkar put his comic streak to a good use. This movie had the audience in splits. He also sang the song Pani Da Rang for the same movie and it also became an instant hit among the masses. Eventually his other song – Mitti Di Khushboo – also strikes a chord for all those people who are staying away from their hometowns and their families. 

Apart from these two there are actors such as Sushant Singh Rajput, who rose to fame with his acting skills in PavitraRishta as directed and produced by EktaKapoor. He also made his Bollywood debut in Kai Po Che, which was an AbhishekKapoor's film, and based on The 3 Mistakes of My Life - ChetanBhagat's novel. Not to forget actors like AmitSadh, AvikaGor and YamiGautam who have made it big through the TV industry.
