Kapil Sharma, Divyanka Tripathi, Jennifer Winget a look at TV’s newsmakers of 2017 – Here are the TV personalities of the year.
The year 2017 was a rather eventful one for Indian TV. We had a number of good developments. Makers showed the desire to experiment with subjects and we saw some fresh concepts on TV. Likewise, a number of actors made us sit up with their performances and achievements. The biggest news of the first half of 2017 was the mid-air fight between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover. It sent fans of the star comedians and best friends into mourning. Divyanka Tripathi, Jennifer Winget, Hina Khan were the women who made the news. And of course, a certain Mr Mehta swept all the awards. Here is a look at TV’s personalities of the year…
He has undoubtedly been the newsmaker of the year. And sadly, for all the wrong reasons. In March, we got a shock when he heard that he has got into a nasty fight with his colleagues, especially Sunil Grover on a India-Australia fight. It seems the comedian had flung his shoe at Sunil. After initial silence, it was evident that a huge rift was created. Sunil walked out of the show along with Ali Asghar. That was the start of the downslide for Kapil. The comedian went into depression and took refuge in the bottle. After staying mum for a long time, Kapil confessed that he was in depression and had alcohol problems. He also spoke about his unsteady health. Kapil’s second film Firangi also bombed at the box office. We are sure he will like to forget 2017 as soon as possible.
Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya
The actress became the first TV celeb to have six million followers on Instagram. Divyanka, who plays Ishita on Yeh Hai Mohabbatein took part on the reality show, Nach Baliye 8 and emerged as the winner. Her show, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein also saw a resurgence in its popularity after the Budapest track. It is back in the top 10. The actress also won awards for being one of the most respected figures in the field of Indian entertainment. Recently, it was the death of Ishimaa on Yeh Hai Mohabbatein that again put the spotlight on the actress. This is not it! Divyanka has lost oodles of weight and is looking hottter than ever.
The lady was awarded and appreciated for playing Maya in Beyhadh. She spared no effort to add that extra to her character of a psychotic lover and the track where she went bald was viral. Earlier in the year, she opened for the first time about her split with ex-husband Karan Singh Grover and won us over with her grace and honesty. Jennifer is being approached by many brands and her Instagram followers have touched 4.2 million in record time. From sizzling hot to super cute, Jennifer has emerged as the perfect poster girl of the rapidly changing sensibilities of Indian TV.
So, let us know who was your favourite TV personality of the year. Stay tuned to Bollywood Life for more scoop and updates.
