Our television divas have always kept up with all the trends and in things that come in every year. And while they do always keep up with the fashion trends, they also keep at it as far as their acting skills are concerned. 2018 has seen some major style statements come through from out television actresses, and also a few great performances. While some much-awaited comebacks happened, many continued to do well on the already existing shows.

Right from Hina Khan's return to daily soaps as the iconic vamp Komolika to Surbhi Chandna's work in Ishqbaaaz, and of course Jennifer Winget in Bepannaah, there has been some meaningful content that television has brought, and they've been well executed by the female leads. Indian television is often said to be female-oriented but there's still a lot of efforts that the leading ladies put into everything they do, and it hasn't gone unnoticed to say the least. Here's our pick of the best television actresses from the year.

Surbhi Chandna

Surbhi Chandna as the 'khidkitod' Anika has always been a favourite of the viewers, and this year, the show bought about a lot of social messages too, which were very beautifully emoted by Surbhi. Surbhi has the kind of swag that other character could portray on Indian television, and we've seen how she's perfectly put it all together. She has also won multiple awards for her character, and they were all rightly deserved. 

Jennifer Winget

Jennifer as Zoya was surreal. She emoted all those emotions so perfectly, and the transition from hating each other to falling in love with each other, Jennifer and Harshad have made Bepannaah a fan favourite in a mere seven months and their chemistry was totally sizzling. Seeing Jennifer as Maya first and then transform into the delicate Zoya just proved how she can totally get into the skin of the character she is given.

Hina Khan

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Kites rise highest against the wind,not with it.. #LetsRiseAndShine #Komolika #KZK2

Hina Khan made her return to ficiton with Kasautii Zindagii Kay, and this time she did it in a negative role. After Akshara in Yeh Rishta, followed by her stints in two reality shows, this is a complete shift and she's aced it. Fans have been in awe of a vamp and it is a rare instance to see that happen. Hina as Komolika isn't just sizzling, but she is also convincing and with the last promo that we saw, she's definitely brought a lot more to the table along with Erica and Parth.

Drashti Dhami

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

And this journey of Nandini on “Silsila” come to an end today.... It’s been short but one helluva of a journey..... I still remember the outdoor shoot in Goa like it happened yesterday to working with new co stars who are my friends today...actually very very good friends & to the sheer hard work I put in to bring “Nandini” to life on screen... It’s actually been a roller coaster rides which has been bumpy, but been a huge learning for me both as an actor as well as a person... I do want to thank my producers [this is my 2nd show with them] the channel, my co actors/colleague on this show and everyone associated with this show & to my fans who have been so so supportive.... Till the next acting initiative here’s Drashti signing off, till we meet again.....Adios Lots of love @aditidevsharma @shaktiarora @ashukla09 @colorstv @ravs0058 @pearl_spellbound

Drashti as Nandini in Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka was a character that was as much loved as hated, her being the other woman in the relationship of her best friend Mauli (Aditi Sharma). However, Drashti pulled off the character with grace, and though she did leave the show, fans still miss it and are already waiting for her to make a comeback with another show.

Divyanka Tripathi

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

#MohabbateinMoments... Through the lens of @parthamitra64.

A post shared by Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya (@divyankatripathidahiya) on

Yeh Hai Mohabbatein made another milestone this year as the show completed five years, and also 1500 episodes, and Divyanka has been the much loved Ishimaa ever since. Divyanka continues to be loved by all even today, and she has outdone herself in the show if nothing else. To sustain in a show for so long and still not be outdated is something that is obviously an achievement in itself and she is someone who has managed to do it well.

Erica Fernandes

Erica is still loved for her portrayal of Sonakshi Bose in Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi and it took everyone time to accept Erica opposite someone who isn't Shaheer Sheikh. However, once Kasautii Zindagii Kay went on air, everyone was convinced that she can develop a chemistry with anyone, and that Parth and Erica make for an equally great pairing. Erica has taken all the perfect cues from the original Prerna and mixed her own touch to it which is what makes the reboot a great show. 

Shivangi Joshi

Shivangi as Naira is yet another actor who has seen multiple transitions on the show, right from being distant to divorce to being back in love and now the pregnancy track. The show too, through the character of Naira has incorporated multiple social messages, and Shivangi has been essential in giving them out with her acting prowess. She shares an impressive on-screen chemistry with Mohsin Khan, and that is something that adds to the overall feel of the show.

Eisha Singh

Eisha Singh as Zara in Ishq Subhan Allah has been a great performer in terms of acting, as well as the strong-headed character that she is in the show. Eisha has built a rapport with Adnan that makes it so effortless when they share screen space, and hence she makes it to this list of 2018's best. The show has been a game changer, and also has brought about a revolution as to how the television industry works with a delicate issue like Triple Talaaq.

They are all equally bad but very good looking

Surbhi chandana is the best! Waiting for her next dhamakedaar project soon!

Jennifer Winget has always proved herself to be a fabulous actress.. Her powers as an actress are amazing.. Indian television should be blessed to have her yet she has been shrud away due to cheap politics at award shows.. Though she has won a lot of critics awards on her ability but sadly not a popular one. From sneha,ganga, ridhima, kumud and the trailbrailzing Maya to Zoya now.. She has shown her versatility and acting skills! ITV should start appreciating her cuz she has been given a cold shoulder from the industry only cuz she lacks the ekta network. Post this PV!
