1) Siddharth Shukla 

The Balika Vadhu star became a household name in shows like “Dil Se Dil tak” and “Sasural simar ka.” After that, he went from being just a tv star to featuring in a Karan johar movie.

Even then, he had to level up his social media game because if you are not where your audience is, you are nowhere.
