They ruled primetime as they entered our living rooms night after night with their good looks and charm. Of course, natural acting talent was an added bonus! Even with an enviable fan following, these television hotties decided to take a sabbatical, leaving our eyes sore from lack of eye candy on the tube.
Here’s looking at 5 TV Hotties who need to make a television comeback for fans to be able to swoon over them all over again!
Popularly known as KSG, Grover is a regulation hottie! Even after one failed marriage, various alleged affairs and the current ‘blissfully married’ status, his popularity hasn’t taken a hit. He made women go weak in the knees as Dr. Armaan Mallik in Dil Mil Gaye just as smoothly as he made hearts go aflutter as Asad Khan in Qubool Hai.
His Bollywood attempts have been forgettable to say the least but he is still at it, as he is currently working on a horror film opposite, whom one can only assume is Ramsay Brothers’ wet dream come true, Bipasha Basu. Needless to say, this one doesn’t look quite promising either.
The news of the Sobti exiting Iss Pyaar Ko Main Kya Naam Doon made many a headlines and broke many a hearts. His charm on and off screen and his chemistry with costar Sanaya Irani made him an instant hit with the audience. Such was his popularity that the show had to be taken off air after his exit.
His B-town project Main Aur Mr Right failed without a trace and even though he said his break from TV was essentially to spend time with his family, we think his family has had enough of him and he should come back to us already! (Besides we know you love him!)
Karan Tacker captured imagination as the guy-next-door in Ek Hazaron Mein Meri Behna hai. Even though the show shut shop apparently because the leads weren’t happy with their respective character formation, Karan came out of it with a solid female fanbase.
Yes, he hosted a show post it and is currently on Jhalak Dikhlaja 7 showcasing his dance skills, we miss him in a fictional show given his impeccable acting skills.
Tacker’s co-star from Ek Hazaron Mein Meri Behna Hai Kushal, soon topped the popularity charts too with his good looks and style. The fact that he was rated #6 in the Eastern Eye UK magazine’s 50 Sexiest Asian Man 2012 obviously adds to his appeal. His stint at Bigg Boss is proof of his popularity, as there were petitions signed to bring him back on the show.
Last seen on Khatron Ke Khiladi, where he competed against his lady love Gauhar Khan, we think this hunk needs to get back on the tube as there’s more talent to him than just being Gauhar Khan’s boyfriend. Remember MissMalini‘s google hangout with him? :)
Wahi rocked the nation when he broke into the scene as Ranveer Sisodia with Remix. His solid fan following continued through his years in the industry filled with some lovely performances. Off late, Karan managed to carve a niche for himself as an anchor too with his stint at hosting Nach Baliye along with Gautam Rode. He is currently working on his Bollywood debut.
Good looks, charming personality, great dance moves, a sense of humour, superb acting and a natural star quality, we really hope his TV to films transition is like SRK’s. However, we can’t help but miss him and we hope he considers not leaving his loyal fans behind.
