When it comes to blurring the line between television and Bollywood, a lot of TV stars have taken the leap to films. From doing small TV shows to venturing into films, the jump requires more than just talent because sustaining in Bollywood is a whole other ball game.
There have been a lot of cases when TV actresses have been transformed in an almost unrecognizable manner after entering Bollywood. Right from hair and makeup to the way they dress, everything undergoes a change. While some stars fade away despite of making the transition, there are others who continue to make a hustle on the big screen in their own way.
Prachi Desai
Prachi Desai recently celebrated her 28th birthday. She started her acting career with Ekta Kapoor’s show Kasamh Se and went on to do more than decent job in Bollywood with films like Rock On, One Upon a Time In Mumbaai and others. She will next be seen in Rock On 2. In Kasamh Se, she used to look like a small towner; however, her makeover in Rock On was acknowledged by all and sundry; as if the lady became posh almost overnight.
