Hi krupa, welcome to TechLore.

I bump into this all the time. The easy fix is to switch your primary and secondary monitors in the display properties, and the movie will appear on your TV screen instead of the laptop screen. How you do that depends on the type of graphics hardware and drivers in your particular notebook. You'll want to click on Control Panel --> Display --> Settings --> Advanced. You'll need to browse around the different options until you find which will do the trick.

There's also some discussion about this here:
