    wise veteran bolly actors value the tv because that gives them the limelight for their new movie releases also, but there are some telly actors who leave a show which made them world famous to join bollywood and at the end only to sit and wait for their movie released. what an irony?

    Our own TV actors are more than enough - don't need these BW types. Sanaya Irani and others can give any BW actor a run for their money. Sanaya Irani ROCKS !!!
