I like what Samir said about commitment and I actually do believe that TV actors should remain committed to the show they are doing throughout because trying to shuffle between films and television creates disturbance to the flow of things for the show and results in the use of annoying body doubles and single frame shots of actors. But I do sympathize with television actors since they get stuck in a vicious cycle of monotonous dialogues/tracks/scenes. Television soaps are a slow poison which kills creativity over time, films are much more straight forward, either you like it or you don't. Although it may not be as big or renowned as films, television is still a significant medium and we have all the Bollywood A-listers running on every other soap opera to promote their upcoming films. Obviously, B-town actors would never regress down to doing television soaps, but they can still use television as a means of providing good entertainment, e.g. KBC, Satyamev Jayate etc.
