Here are some of our favourite movie stars that started as TV performers before making it big in Bollywood:

1. Shah Rukh Khan

SRK, often known as the Badshah of Bollywood, began his acting career in 1989 with the TV serial Fauji. It was actually a funny story that the actor was originally cast as the show’s second lead, but the audience and camera adored him so much that he was promoted to the show’s main role.
