Child stars always end up charming the audience when it comes to the success of TV shows. Udaan-Sapnon Ki, the hit serial based on the life of a poor girl from a lower class family of a village in Uttar Pradesh has gained popularity largely for the chirpiness of the protagonist Chakor played by Spandan Chaturvedi. The long-running show about bonded labour and education of village kids, conceived by acclaimed filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, has gained popularity because of the cute little Spandan.

Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, another long-running family drama is liked by the audience for the Ruhi's cuteness, who plays the daughter of lead characters Raman Bhalla played by Karan Patel and Ishita, played by Divyanka Tripathi.

The show based on second marriage, highlighting the selfless love of a stepmom and undergoes the usual ups and downs in the plot. Ruhi, played by the lovely Ruhanika Dhawan, 7-year-old Mumbai girl, has been the favourite character of TV audience. Produced by Ekta Kapoor, the show is based on Manju Kapoor's novel Custody and has been a hit with the Indian diaspora. The dubbed Telugu version Manasu Palike Mouna Geetham has been a hit down south.

Spandan, who plays Chakor, village girl with a burning desire to go to school may not know the relevance of her character or about the life of bonded labours but it took her very little time to understand the role she plays. Her winsome smile and twinkling eyes have been magical in pulling the audience to the show which deals with an issue which may otherwise look dry.

According the Spandan's father, who accompanies him on the set, Spandan is a quick learner and memorises her dialogues in no time. #Television #Celebrities #Film

TV shows with child stars in the lead have always been a huge hit as the family audience enjoys the natural portrayal of kids. Balika Vadhu, one of the biggest hit shows based on the menace of child marriage was a hit largely because of the characters Anandi and Jagya, played by Avika Gor and Avinash Mukherjee, respectively. Avika was 6 when she first appeared in Balika Vadhu and grew up to star in hit show Sasural Simar Ka. Longest running TV show Uttaran starring Sparsh Khanchandani as Icchha and Ishita Panchal who played Tapasya, were the real reasons for the success of the show.
