Indian TV actors are giving all of us girls unrealistic goals for Indian men. These actors play their roles effortlessly and it’s so believable we can’t help but fall in love. The actors are the ideal boyfriends on screen—and lucky for us we get to see them daily from the comfort of our own home.

You know, as I eat myself into obesity due to the immense depression I face for not being able to find a human specimen as perfect as the men on Indian television.

To ease the pain—or maybe it’ll have you spiraling into further depression—check out part 2 of this list of gorgeous Indian television actors we want to see shirtless all the time!

Part 2 of television actors that need to stay shirtless:

6. Karan Patel

Karan Patel is touted as the Shah Rukh Khan of the small screen with his good looks and great presence on screen. The hero starred in quite a few hit shows like “Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki,” “Kasautii Zindagi Kay,” and “Kasamh Se” before he bagged the lead in the show “Kasturi.”

Aside from television shows, Patel has also taken on reality shows like “Nach Baliye,” “Survivor India” and “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.” He has also played host to shows like “Nach Baliye” season 7, “Gumrah” season 5, “Kaho Na Yaar Hai,” and “Diwali Dilo Ki,” He’s even taken part in the Box Cricket League with many other television stars. He was also featured on the show “Teri Meri Love Stories.”

Like King Khan, Patel too is married (naahhhhiiinnnnn!) He recently married the very beautiful television actress Ankita Bhargava, whose father is actually Patel’s on-screen father-in-law as well on the popular show “Yeh Hai Mohabbatein.” How cute! Just because it’s a loss for us doesn’t mean we can’t be happy for the lovely couple.

7. Karan Singh Grover

Another married hero we can only drool over from afar is Karan Singh Grover. The man looks gorgeous in everything, and even better when he’s wearing nothing. But before I get carried away let me remind you all that the television-actor-turned-Bollywood-hero is married to the sexiest woman in Bollywood—Bipasha Basu. Though this is Grover’s third marriage and Basu’s first, the couple are so head over heels in love it looks like Grover has finally found his forever wala soulmate.

Remember the name #aussiemonkeys

Grover grew up in Saudi Arabia and later studied Hotel Management at IHM Mumbai. He then worked as a marketing executive at the Sheraton Hotel in Oman before returning to India to pursue modelling and entered the Gladrags ManHunt Contest where he won Most Popular Model. Soon after, the handsome hunk bagged his first role, in Ekta Kapoor’s “Kitni Mast Hai Zindagi.”

Grover joined the cast of popular shows like “Sohlah Singar” and “Kasauti Zindagi Kay” but his true claim to fame was the iconic show “Dill Mill Gayye.” Grover became an instant icon and the show portrayed his sexy yet adorably endearing attitude which fans fell in love with. Grover again won the hearts of his viewers with his role as Asad Ahmed Khan the hit show “Qubool Hai.” His fans loved him so dearly that the viewership dropped drastically when he left and fans sent hate mail to his replacement, Rakesh Vashisht. Grover later returned as a producer for the show.

He’s also been on “Teri Meri Love Stories,” did a cameo for Channel V’s “Dil Dosti Dance,” hosted “Zara Nachke Dikha” and some award shows, was a finalist on “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa” and a contestant on the reality show “Fear Factor: Khatron Ki Khiladi.” Grover was in a band in his youth and, inspired by his new wife, it seems he is back to working on music! Amazingly sexy (and talented) actor, dancer, and now, singer? I don’t think we can handle this triple threat!

8. Karan Tacker

Karan Tacker, is a unique blend of sweetness and sexy. Tacker is the cute boy next door who doesn’t realize how ridiculously hot he is. He is lean, toned and so dreamy!

Be you’re own inspiration. #nofilter needed. 😎#fitnessfriday #friday

Tacker has starred in numerous popular shows such as “Love Ne Bana di Jodi,” “Rang Badalti Odhani,” and the super popular “Ek Hazaaron Main Meri Behna.” The latter show put Tacker on the map and had girls fantasizing about having a husband as sweet and considerate as Viren Singh Vadhera. Viren did an amazing job at keeping his family and his wife, Jeevika’s family happy at all times—a skill boys today rarely have.

Tacker is also known as an awesome host from special behind-the-scenes events for the Filmfare Awards to grand award shows and reality shows! He was also a finalist on “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa” season 7 and joined his fellow colleagues in the Box Cricket League. Currently this beautiful human specimen can be found hosting the Indian version of “The Voice” on television. Can you believe this guy has a degree in business management? Sweet, sexy and smart? What else does a girl need?

I know—for Tacker to remain shirtless for eternity, yup. We need that.

9. Ruslaan Mumtaz

Actor Ruslaan Mumtaz actually started out his career in films with the cute romance “MP3: Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar” in 2007. After “MP3” Mumtaz took on many films regarding off beat topics like teenaged pregnancy, science fiction and MMS scandals. He’s worked with some of Bollywood’s best from Ritesh Deshmukh and Jacqueline Fernandez in “Jaane Kahaan Se Aayi Hai” to Karishma Kapoor in her comeback film, “Dangerous Ishq.”

Mumtaz is a bold actor, I mean….

Sorry, lost my train of thought. What was I saying? Yes, Mumtaz is a bold actor who took on the role of a younger man in love with an older woman in his first television show “Kehta Hai Dil Jee Le Zara.” He went on to work in the show “Encounter,” and was featured in episodes of shows like “MTV’s Big F” and “Yeh Hai Aashiqui.” The gorgeous actor was last seen on season 2 of the popular show “Balika Vadhu,” where he played the love interest of Nandini, the daughter of child bride Anandi. The most depressing news you will here today is that Mumtaz, like all the beautiful men in my life, is married.

Please excuse me as I sob uncontrollably into my pillow.

10. Gautam Rode

Can you believe he is 39-years-old and still this dreamy? He is literally perfection personified. Sweet, smart, soft spoken, did I mention dreamy? You just want to watch him undress all day long. He’s a vegetarian too!

After some episodic roles, Rode truly began his television career in 2005 with the show “Baa Bahoo Aur Baby.” He later went on to do numerous shows like “Lucky,” “Betiyaan Apni Yaa Paraaya Dhan,” “Ssshhhh…Koi Hai,” “Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na.” His popularity grew to great heights when he starred in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Saraswati Chandra.” Since then the actor has showed off his adorable hosting skills on various award shows and television reality shows like “Nach Baliye” and “India’s Got Talent.”
