Sidharth Shukla, TV and film actor
Regarded as one of the hottest men on TV, Sidharth Shukla has been working on shows since 2008. However, it was his role of Shiv in Balika Vadhu that sent women in a frenzy. He took part in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and went onto to bag Karan Johar’s production Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. He was last seen on India’s Got Talent as an anchor. He is one of the most popular amongst India’s soap stars.

She made her film debut in 2003 with Ssshhh…but her career in films never took off. From 2003 to 2011, she was seen in forgettable films including the disastrous Neal N Nikki.
