Karan Singh Grover
No prizes for guessing this one. Ever since he broke into the scene,
Karan Singh Grover changed the way Indian TV heroes look on screen. His
rippling muscles, tattooed arms and boyish good looks have captured the
imagination of young India
No wonder then that producers were forced to bring him back from the
dead (in "Dill Mill Gayye") and in spite of having two left feet, KSG
still managed to find himself in the top three of a dance reality show
(by virtue of his tremendous fan power). He's currently doing the high
on adrenaline reality show " Khatron Ke Khiladi 3", besides playing the
male lead in "DMG".
Post playing Ram in the epic "Ramayan", not many thought that the
handsome hunk could do much. With the burden of a character like Ram
weighing heavily on his shoulders, doing something different was a tall
task. But Gurmeet planned his strateg well. His next stint was a reality
TV show which helped break the mould of the divine character, showcased
him as a human being. He then moved to the show "Geet ...
Hui Sabse Parayee", playing an angry young man. But surprise! The
audience has accepted his new avatar. What's more, the actor even plans
to take a shot at films. Sushant Singh Rajput
Ekta Kapoor managed to turn one of the most good looking actors on
Indian TV into a scruffy looking guy from the chawl and he's still
popular. The suave and dudish Preet (his character from "Kis Des Mein
Hain Mera Dil") is a far cry from the modest and humble Manav of
"Pavitra Rishta". The audience seems to have given him a thumbs up as
the unkempt, long suffering hero. Guess shedding tears is the key to
Here's another actor who stole hearts with his angry young man avatar.
Arjun Bijlani played the quintessential college dude, Mayank, with his
silent killer looks in "Miley Jab Hum Tum", after a stint in "Left Right
Left" . Paired with bubbly co-actor Rati Pandey, his character
flourished and became one of the most popular in the show. Post the
leap, his character becomes gambhir again and this time instead of a
sulking teen, is a teacher at the college he studied at. Never mind the
change, the audience still love him and given the fickle nature of most
storylines, this comes as no surprise.
The model turned actor had a tall task at hand when he signed "Naa Aana
Is Des ...
Laado". Not only was it a totally women-centric show, the overwhelming
presence of Meghna Malik as Ammaji made things harder for him. His
initial negative character didn't cut ice with the audience, because if
it's bad, it can only be Ammaji. But ever since his character turned
positive, the women are loving the caring and sensitive Raaghav. It pays
to be good looking and well dressed in the show.
He started off as a teeny bopper in the intense prime time show "Love
Story". But what a turn around it has been for the chocolate boy Mishal.
The actor is currently stealing hearts as Dutta Bhau, the gangster in
"Laagi Tujhse Lagan". Gone are the sweet smile and bright clothes. With a
permanent scowl in place and matured sense of style, Mishal is emerging
as the real bhau of Indian television and now is also a sedate anchor
in "Mano Ya Na Mano 2".
