I know it's hard to believe that we are already mid way through 2017, but it's true! The first half was great for the Indian film industry courtesy Prabhas' Baahubali: The Conclusion, Aamir Khan's Dangal and Shah Rukh Khan's Raees. It was nothing less eventful for television as new shows like Aarambh (Star Plus), Chandra Kanta (Colors), Aisi Deewangi (Zee TV), Dil Bole Oberoi (Star Plus) started off while the old game players like Kumkum Bhagya, Ishqbaaz and Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi continued to enthrall the viewers with interesting twists and turns.
After many years the Indian television viewers are finally getting to watch shows where the males have an equal part to play. They are no more being sent off on business trips so that the saas bahu can indulge in some kitchen politics. The male actors, today, are enjoying an equal footing to their female contemporaries.
A few years back the scenario was not the same. The TRPs of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhie Bahu Thi didn't drop as much when Mihir (Amar Upadhyay)died on the show, as much as they dropped when Smriti Irani left the show. But today, people will be as upset about Shivaay Singh Oberoi's (Ishqbaaz) death as they will be with Pragya (Kumkum Bhagya) or Ishita's (Yeh Hai Mohabbatein). So while these shows have opened new opportunities for the men they have also put a lot of responsibility on their shoulders.
So here's a list of top 10 TV actors who we think deserve a round of applause for their performances. You vote and tell us who amongst them deserve to get the title of Best Actor in the first half of 2017 the most.
Nakuul Mehta (Ishqbaaz)
Zain Imam (Naamkarann)
Shaheer Sheikh (Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi)
Shabir Ahluwalia (Kumkum Bhagya)
Karan Patel (Yeh Hai Mohabbatein)
Mohsin Khan (Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai)
Sshahrad Malhotra (Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki)
Kushal Tandon (Beyhadh)
Rajat Tokas (Chandra Nandini)
Kunal Jaisingh (Dil Bole Oberoi)
I know it's going to be really tough for you guys to choose one from these talented actors as each one is better than the other.
