Of Course that would be near impossible to reach srk's level, he has a fixed place & it would not be easy for the tv stars to EMULATE SRK!!!! of course not,..

But still some of the stars which have the potential to reach a high level in bollywood can be the magical & eternal jodi of Karan-Shilpa { KaSh..}..i would love to see them in a version of DDLJ...& of course Dhrasti is a super-talented actress..she can get lotss of fame & name in bollywood

In all honesty, I agree with Niyati... It's hard for me to picturize the TV actors in anything else than the role they are super known for! It would take a lot for me to actively go watch a movie with one of the big TV actors and I would prolly compare the character to their TV characters all the time! For example: I see 'dhrashti' as 'geet' and it would be hard to reconcile her with other characters (that too in the small time span of a movie).
Also, I think there is a lot more room for actors on TV, whereas there is much more limited movie lead roles in the bigger banners...

Barun Sobti, would make a great transition to Bollywood. He is the best all round actor to me.

Bollywood is full of star sons and daughters who get lead roles easily as if its their birthright, even though they have very little talent. TV stars are much more talented and often more good-looking but they cant get a foothold in Bollywood because of these spoiled star offspring! SRK and Vidya Balan had to struggle a lot to get there but other TV stars shd take inspiration from these 2 superstars! Rajeev has carved out his own niche in parallel cinema!
For someone who was asking abt Vidya Balan in Hum paanch, here is a photo of her as a teenager in that show:

They missed out Rajeev Khandelwal. Yes, his films might not have done well at the box office, but he has carved a niche for himself in BW as the type of actors who prefer a different type of cinema. Rajeev has got critical acclaim for most of his movies till date and has many other good projects in hand.

Other than that, in the current lot, I think Sushant Singh Rajput is a complete package for BW. Great acting skills, good looking, strong screen presence, and fantastic dancing skills. Plus his debut movie sounds promising. Keeping fingers crossed that his movie does well.

'Vicky Donor' starring Ayushman Khurana and Yami Gautam releases soon. Hope it will do well too.
