Success in Bollywood is difficult for many of those who try. Success doesn’t touch everyone’s feet and is only known to a few in Bollywood. While some actors have a passion for acting, they don’t care if it’s the big screen or small

It is a bitter pill most actors and artists need to swallow that Bollywood doesn’t always work for everyone. TV is considered a big thing as one has to appear almost every day and the audiences who watch these stars on TV, remember their faces and start loving the characters. Here are Bollywood actors who l left the TV for the big screen.

1. Sridevi:
The late actress, Sridevi had enchanted her audiences and made them fall in love with her. Sridevi has seen utmost success in Bollywood and in the South Indian film industry too. But very few know that the actress also worked in TV shows, alongside films. Sridevi never left Bollywood for TV but did TV shows like Malini Iyer, Karthika Deepam, etc. Audiences still remember her from Malini Iyer and certainly miss her presence on the big and small screens.

2. Gracy Singh
Gracy Singh who is known in Bollywood for her roles in Award-winning movies like Lagaan and Munna Bhai M.B.B.S suddenly disappeared from the big screens and her fans wondered why. She wasn’t seen in any films in many years. A few years later, Gracy was seen on the show, Santoshi Maa as the lead role of the Goddess herself on TV. The show was successful on a small scale but the Audiences were happy to see her on-screen.

3. Amrita Rao
Amrita Rao who is known for her role alongside Shahid Kapoor in many films was moderately successful in Bollywood. After her downfall in Bollywood, Amrita Rao decided to leave her career in Bollywood and join TV. To say that audiences were shocked to see her on TV would be an understatement. Amrita starred in the TV show Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai.



We hope these actors again come on screen so we could just witness them on the big screens again. For Sridevi, we have lost a legend.
