The reason is simple, people see TV actresses on an almost daily basis, which is why they develop a deeper and more personal connection with them.
It’s common knowledge that Bollywood actresses get paid better, have access to better hair and make-up and have a much more qualified and experienced entourage surrounding them. However, when it comes to popularity, they can sometimes lag behind TV actresses. The reason is simple, people see TV actresses on an almost daily basis, which is why they develop a deeper and more personal connection with them. All of these actresses have more than 1 mn followers.
With a whooping 5.4mn followers, Divyanka is the reigning queen of Indian television. In terms of sheer numbers, she has a higher follower count than Katrina Kaif who at the time of writing this article had just 5.2 mn followers. That’s saying something since Katrina is one of the biggest actresses around.
She is cool, she is confident and her role as Maya Mehrotra in Beyhadh is earning her legions of fans. With a whopping 3.7 mn followers, Jennifer is bigger than someone like Aditi Rao Hydari who has just 1.6 mn followers.
With 3.6 mn followers, Mouni Roy is someone who has caught the eye of Bollywood producers and will soon rub shoulders with an A-lister like Akshay Kumar. She has more followers than someone like Dia Mirza (whose RHTDM still gets a lot of love across TVs in the country), who is stuck at 1.4 mn followers.
Sanaya Irani is as beautiful as the sun setting in the sea, and we think that she deserves much more than the 1.2 mn followers she already has. Though nowhere close to some of the A-list Bollywood actresses, Irani has done better than a forgotten actress like Celina Jaitley. Think of a bad actress, and chances are Celina (sorry if we’re being too harsh) will come to your mind.
