Numerous TV stars eventually made the transition to films, and succeeded, one of the most notable names was Sushant Singh Rajput.
Sushant singh Rajput’s journey started with Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil before the big break in Ekta Kapoor’s Pavitra Rishta, also inspired other TV actors to dream of the big screen. One of those who also took that jump has been Radhika Madan.
The actress in a recent interview with an entertainment portal stated that Sushant had inspired her and many other aspiring TV actors. The Angrezi Medium star said that she took the ‘leap’, after becoming a popular face with the show Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi as Sushant made it look ‘so possible’ for them.
She also recalled how people would tell her to ‘stick to TV’ and discouraged her that ‘film producers never gave TV actors a chance.’ Radhika shared that she’d often give Suhant’s example to such people as he played a crucial role for many.
The nepotism debate too has shot to the spotlight again amid reports that his alleged ouster from films and being ‘boycott’ by big names played a part in his death.

She claimed she felt content giving her ‘200 per cent’ and being prepared for whatever the outcome might be. Radhika hoped people are courageous to address the issues in the industry and solve it.
