If one were to dig a tad deeper into the lifestyles of the Bollywood and the TV actors, one would be led into believing that there is a stark difference with almost all of the Bollywood actors living in palatial houses in or around Pali Hill region in Bandra, Mumbai. The TV actors, on the other hand dwell around the cheaper Andheri and Goregaon areas. That is where the difference in their lifestyles end as these small screen actors are now living their lives king and queen size! The wage difference is being slowly minimized with the actors from the small screen demanding higher wages as their roles become substantially important.
