From Barun Sobti to Jay Bhanushali: Nine TV heartthrobs to debut in Bollywood

Barun Sobti's part only

This could go down as Tellytown's year in Bollywood. In 2014, nine of small screen's hottest heartthrobs with Bollywood stardust in their eyes are all set to make swift inroads in B-Town armed with lead roles in big ticket films. 

For these telly hotties who've just joined the B-Town rat race, making the big splash on celluloid is a career-defining decision, which means a deliberate and enforced sabbatical from television projects (to wipe out the over-familiarity that comes with the territory of being a TV star and create an element of curiosity about them), working hard to get fab physiques and slipping into the shoes of their reel characters. Will small screen's most loved imports strike BO gold in Bollywood too?

Barun Sobti:
A BPO exec to TV heartthrob Delhi dude Barun Sobti's career graph sounds like a film-script! The man who catapulted to telly stardom with Iss Pyaar Ko Kyaa Naam Doon? created history when the channel had to pull the plug on his show when he opted out of it in 2012. While Barun's wrapped up Main Aur Mr Right and 22 Yards, he might have landed his big ticket in John Abraham's home production, Satra Ko Shaadi Hai, slated for a year-end release. Can he be TV's 'big' import to B-Town though is the big question.
