Even though we may call television the small screen, its magnitude is way bigger than our imaginations. Be it on social media, in real life, or even through their characters, these 10 actors have made an effort to touch our hearts and inspire us in one way or the other. Check out our Power List from television, as we list the stars who not only shone bright, but even connected to us at some level.
1. Nia Sharma
The sultry siren from the small screen might invite a controversy or social media trolling every now and then, but she never lets all this affect her. Yes, with her victory march every year, Nia manages to stay amongst the most celebrated TV actresses. In fact, she has been on the 50 sexiest Asian women list for three consecutive years, leaving far behind some Bollywood beauties too. Nia was on the 3rd position on this list in 2016, she took the 2nd spot leaving Priyanka Chopra Jonas behind in 2017, and in 2018, the lady made it again to 3rd position. But she was definitely the first one from the TV industry to make it to that list. Even as we speak, the actress continues to inspire us on fitness and fashion, and in life.
2. Kapil Sharma
Amongst the men from the television industry, Kapil Sharma tops the list of names to look up to, and on the popularity charts. His times of turmoil did not shake the man who changed the entire arena of comedy in India.
