2011: Year of stars and comeback of old favourites on TV

<a target="_blank" href=""><img alt="Advertisement" height="71" width="640" border="0" src=""></a>
NEW DELHI: With big money and an easy connect with audience, small screen is no longer small for Bollywood actors and 2011 saw some of the biggest names like Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta making their foray into TV.

Almost all of the top stars are headed to television. Aamir Khan has announced his TV debut while Sanjay Dutt and Arjun Rampal have already followed in the footsteps of mega star Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan, who have become regular faces on reality and quiz shows now.

The verdict is still out on Dutt's skill as the anchor of popular reality show 'Bigg Boss 5'. He, however, seems to enjoy his stint on the small screen, promoting his role in 'Agneepath' along the way. Salman has been making special appearances on the show thanks to his busy shooting schedule of 'Ek Tha Tiger'.

'Bigg Boss' has always seen a Bollywood celebrity as host. Arshad Warsi was the first host, followed by Shilpa Shetty, Amitabh Bachchan and finally Salman, last season.

Hrithik too decided to take a break from the big screen after the disaster of much hyped 'Kites' and 'Guzaarish', by judging the dance reality show 'Just Dance' on Star Plus, followed by the success of 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'.

The money that these star command on small screen often runs into crores. According to trade sources, Salman Khan charged up to Rs 3 crore per episode to host 'Bigg Boss' while Hrithik was paid upto Rs 2 crore per episode for 'Just Dance'. Bachchan, who hosted the third season of 'Bigg Boss' had signed the show for Rs 2.25 crore.

Among others from Bollywood, veteran actor Dharmendra made a rather emotional judge on 'India's Got Talent', which saw the actor teary eyed on several occasions.

Bubbly actress Preity Zinta, who has been missing in action on the big screen for sometime, made her television debut with 'Guinness World Records' in February.

The 36-year-old actress also joined the league of other celebrity friends-cum-TV anchors with her show- 'Up Close and Personal with PZ'.

Arjun Rampal also ventured into the small screen with the show 'Love 2 Hate U'. In the show, hosted by Rampal, the celebrities come face to face with their biggest haters.

Bollywood's Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan also finally decided to make his much awaited television debut this year.
Bachchan was back once again as the host of the popular and super hit reality game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' for its fifth season. His first appearance on Indian Television was with the first season of KBC aired in the year 2000.

This was also a year of comebacks, with the return of both veterans and popular TV actors.

After a long hiatus, actor Ram Kapoor and television's favourite bahu Sakshi Tanwar returned to TV with Ekta Kapoor's 'Bade Acche Lagte Hai'. The show has tasted success and so has the lead pair for portraying an adorable middle-aged couple, who fall in love after marriage.

Mohnish Behl, who started his career in 1982 with films and then shifted to small screen with medical drama 'Sanjivani', also made a comeback on TV in a mismatch love story 'Kuch To Log Kahenge'.
