They're bold, beautiful and totally unrecognisable!

Television actresses are usually typecast as demure women in saris.

In real life these women are very different from their onscreen avatars.

They don't look like the bahus or betis they play. Far from it.

Here's looking at the bold and beautiful versions of the demure telly bahus.

Would you have recognised Roop if you were to meet her in Goa?

Mouni made her television debut in Ekta Kapoor's Kyunki... Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.

Naagin has made her something of a telly superstar.

There's a reason why Nia ranks third on Asia's Sexiest Women list.


Sanaya Irani

Sanaya can play the girl next door as well as the gorgeous babe just as easily.

The Yeh Ishq Haaye star can work it, glam or deglam!

Rubina became popular with Choti Bahu.

But she looks anything but that on Instagram.

Sonarika's pix in a bikini had gone viral. She looks ethereal in Devon Ke Dev - Mahadev.

Stunner, isn't she?

The Yeh Hai Mohabbatein star has a different face for work and home.

Anita's Yeh Hai Mohabbatein co-star looks really different as well.

Divyanka, who celebrates her first wedding anniversary next month, paints a very different look on screen and off it.

We've seen Drashti look gorgeous on the red carpet. But she's even hotter at home!


Jennifer Winget

Jenny W's movie with Kunal Kohli (Phir Se) awaits a release.

The telly bahu could be in the movies big time, we say.


Krystle D'Souza

'Stay Classy, Sassy and a little Bad Assy,' writes Krystle.

Not something her character in Ekk Nayi Pehchaan would say.


Sukirti Khandpal

Suriti looks cute in her serials and in Bigg Boss.

Real life is a hawt matter.

Can you imagine the Kumkum Bhagya star as a red hot lady?

Who said cops can't look sexy?
