Will 2015 Be The Year of TV Actors in Bollywood?

Bollywood’s glamour has been a perpetual source of magnetic charm for most television actors. While we have examples of TV stars making big in Bollywood in the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Ayushmann Khurana, Sushant Singh Rajpoot, Vidya Balan, Yami Gautam, Prachi Desai and Aditya Roy Kapoor, there have been others who have not fared so well too. Each year we see an array of televison stars making their Bollywood debut, but very few survive the competition and get lucrative offers after their first film.
