Cezzane khan aska anurag basu of kasauti zindagi kay should be on list. He rose fame with title character of anurag basu. He's one of my all time favourite actor. Miss those kzk days.
Another should be priyanka bassi aska naina singh alluwalia of LRL.
Miss her, RN forever
Elijaz khan of kavyajali fame is also miss in the list,
neha bamb and amana shariff both are missing in the list. Both are too good as kripa and kasish receptively in balaji soaps.
Last but not the least rakhi tandon our very own sweety of hum paanch is missing in the list.
But thanks including chadana in the list she is the great actors and host.

Chandana Sharma! I've watched her anchor and act. Caught her in the episodic she had done for Rishta.com and really missed her. If there is a female equivalent for "separating the men from the boys", it applies here.

Though a negative role, Anjum potrayed it beautifully. We all hated that character so much.. thanks to her acting! I would love to see her back in better roles.

Cezanne Khan (Anurag of KasautI) is another one. Last seen in Sita aur Geeta (Imagine) in 2009.
Well, he was slated to play Raman in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actually and he even shoot for a day or two. But later quit I reckon for the delay of telecasting.
