The glamour and entertainment industry we call 'Bollywood' keeps introducing fresh faces to us every now and then but unlike before the criterion of being a 'related to somebody influential' has also been added to the list of talent and good looks. The task can be even more challenging if you have been a TV actor, which means you aren't even a fresh face. With almost little luck and a lot of hope, there have still been a few actors who decided to swim against the tide, who bent the 'only one industry' rule and with their hard work, made their way to the big screen shining like a star. Here are a few to name.
Famous for her role in Hum Paanch, it took this lady years of struggle and hard work to make her debut as an actress in Parineeta.
Sushant Singh Rajput
The man who is now considered as one of the most talented stars of Bolywood and has given us hits like Kai Po Che, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! and M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story has been a popular face on TV from the show Pavitra Rishta, which he was a part of for over two years.
She was spotted by Ekta Kapoor outside her college and Prachi overnight rose to fame as Bani on Zee TV's Kasamh Se. Life changed yet again when she was offered Rock On!!, which too became a huge hit. The girl has never looked back since.
From winning and being one of the most popular faces of the reality show, Roadies to Vicky Donor, Ayushmann has come a long way indeed. Not to forget, he did, along the way, host TV shows, sing songs and became an MTV VJ as well.
With examples like these, who says anything is impossible?
