In the past few years, we have seen how the thin line between Bollywood and TV industry has blurred. While many superstars from the film industry explored the small screen, several beauties from the telly world too tried their luck on the big screen. Now while this transition has become frequent, we are also seeing TV actors following the trend that Bollywood has been known for. In the past, we saw how actors like John Abraham, Aamir Khan, among others ventured into producing films. Now, some popular faces from the TV industry have also turned producers. Here are 5 TV actors who have worn the producer’s hat.
Bharti Singh – Harsh Limbhachiyaa
The newest producers on the block are comedienne Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiyaa. They are the makers of the latest prank reality show Khatra Khatra Khatra. In fact, Harsh has also written the show. Mildly inspired by Khatron Ke Khiladi 9, the show features contestants challenging one another and the loser gets pranked. The show went on-air on March 11th and we got to witness how Harsh had to get Vikas’ name inked on his hand. The show also features some contestants from Khatron Ke Khiladi’s latest season but has Bharti and Harsh involved in a bigger capacity.
Bigg Boss 12 fame Karanvir Bohra might have been away from acting, but we saw him host a reality show some time ago. Apart from acting, Karanvir has also decided to turn producer for his comeback film titled Hume Tumse Pyaar Kitna. Now, let’s wait and watch if Karanvir produces something for the small screen too. In real life, Karanvir hails from a family of directors and producers.
Ravi Dubey and Sargun Mehta
Ravi and Sargun have been quite a loved couple on television. They have not only appeared on several reality shows but have also delivered some kickass television serials. And turns out that apart from acting, the couple has also produced a Punjabi film called Kala Shah Kala, which released about a month ago.
Himanshu Malhotra too has been a part of reality shows and TV shows. In fact, he has helmed a few projects too. After being the associate producer in Manoj Bajpayee’s Gali Guleiyan, he is now gearing up to produce a chat show called Share and Grow.
Smiriti was seen in shows like 12/24 Karol Bagh and Dil Sambhal Jaa Zara. But acting’s not her only achievement. Smiriti produced a short film called Ambu. Her film won awards at film festivals and received a great response, which makes us wonder if she will be producing more entraining content any time soon!
