Bollywood has always welcomed everyone with open arms. Be it the newcomers or actors doing a comeback, the industry has never disappointed anybody. When actors have repeatedly got chances to prove their talent, why should our small screen actors be left behind?!

So here we go listing the top 5 actors from television who have already made their presence felt or are ready to make a debut into Bollywood. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that they too can create history.
