Tellywood's erstwhile protagonists
Looks like there is a dearth of lead roles for television actresses who had earlier essayed central characters in popular serials. They are twiddling their thumbs and waiting for main roles to come by or are busy doing reality shows, because in this profession the dictum 'Out of sight, out of mind' applies with an alarming alacrity.
Shama Sikander made not just the Gujjus of Ghatkopar proud but the entire nation
After Kkusum on Sony wound up, Aashka Goradia who made her presence felt as Kusum's daughter Kumud, (she had earlier acted in Achanak) which involved
Shaina as Ramola Sikand's daughter-in-law hit it big time in Kahiin Kissi Roz on Star Plus and so did Moulli Ganguly as Shaina, who won the viewers' sympathy for bearing the brunt of the wicked and wily ways of ma-in-law only to get killed by the vamp's endless plotting and made a re-entry as the grand-daughter. Soon the TRPs dipped bringing about its finale. By then most of the viewers had lost track of the ending. After that Moulli was seen doing brief stints in Kkusum, Sarkar and an episode of Darna Mana Hai but nothing substantial as the main protagonist. Though, there is still hope for her as she has been roped in for Hat's Off Productions' Resham Dankh, as the protagonist's wife. Moulli has also given a noteworthy performance in the movie Raincoat. She is said to be waiting for good offers to come her way, be it in films or television.
Remember the smart, perky Air Force officer in Sara Aakash on Star Plus, Sonal Sehgal. She was in the news due to rumours of her alleged relationship with her co-star Shakti Anand, till it died a natural death when he married Sai Deodhar, the other actress in the same serial. After essaying the role of the stylish, brusque and offhanded Director of Hotel Kingston on Star One, Sonal Sehgal is nowhere on the tele scene today except for modeling for ads. The reason: She fell in love with a guy from outside the industry, got married and has perhaps quit acting too. One can never say if she will decide to make a comeback tomorrow but the big question is will she be considered to play the main character!
