Whether it be the gorgeous actresses or the petty commoners, the B-town hunks stand ‘head over heels’ for their acting skills and charismatic proposition. Making a list of just ‘Top 10 Bollywood actors’ out of so many big stars, who have dazzled Bollywood over the years, is no joke! We have to take into account a lot of factors like the number of films they have done, their greatest performances in films and the legacy they have left.
So, ladies and gentlemen, hold your breath coz here we are presenting you the TOP 10 Bollywood Actors who are ruling all over India:-
‘Rishtey mein hum tumhare baap lagte hain..!”
Leading the line in the Top 10 Bollywood Actors list is none other than the great Amitabh Bachchan. In a true sense, he literally justifies the quotation that he is the ‘Baap’ of Bollywood, reigning for a period of over 50 years. From iconic movies to reality shows he has it all under his belt. That tall persona, deep voice and dark intense eyes, combined with fine acting skills made him the favorite with the masses as well as the classes. Acting in all genres, and giving huge blockbusters like ‘Don’, Sholay’, ‘Anand’, ‘Piku’ etc. he defines his stature that he rightly fits into the title ‘Shehensha of Bollywood’. Even his reality show, ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ has raised the ‘vatavaran’ in Indian television. Don’t you think he himself is the ‘milestone’ in the Indian film industry? We are sure that there are many more performances to come from this man who defines greatness in Indian cinema.
He doesn’t need any introduction, Right? Aamir is the modern day actor who has been credited with merging the commercial and parallel cinema in Bollywood. Ain’t it? What do you say?
From the hugely successful ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’, he has always done movies which were different from what his contemporaries are doing and those films have actually worked ‘All is Well’ with the audiences too. Mr. Perfectionist was the only actor in the 90’s era who was doing fewer films at a time, giving his all to every performance. With the advent of the new millennium, ’the trump card of Bollywood’- Aamir has become the biggest name in Bollywood with films like ‘Lagaan’, ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, ‘Rang De Basanti’, ‘3 Idiots’, ‘PK’ and ‘Dangal’ and no one comes even close to his dominance! Besides being a great actor, he is an even bigger cinematic genius for the kind of films he has chosen, believed in and more importantly, for making the audiences and critics believe in them too! He is one of a kind!
Shah Rukh Khan
And here comes the ‘Badshah of Bollywood’. Well, looking at SRK’s journey in Bollywood and his subsequent superstardom, the ‘romance king of the nation’ is the one with whose films we can relate and identify. ‘DDLJ’, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ was not just films but love sagas! He also proved his mettle with films like ‘Baazigar’, ‘Darr’- playing the role of an anti-hero. His finest performances in ‘Chak De India’ and ‘Swades’ further cemented his position as an actor of great caliber in the 2000s. King Khan’s characteristic wit, infectious charm and the ability to romance like a prince on-screen will make you drool over him! We are pretty sure that once in your lifetime you have at least used his unique catchphrases…. Am I right?
‘People like to see my work, not face’- Irfan Khan.
Irfan Khan is highly considered to be best non-commercial actor of the current era. He prefers playing characters who might just cross your path at any juncture of life! He has ‘hit the jackpot’ with his phenomenal acting and bagged innumerable awards. Grabbing the Filmfare award for ‘Life in a… Metro’ and ‘Best Actor Award’ at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne for his role in ‘Piku’ he has ‘swept the Bollywood board’.
Even his Indo-American film, ‘The Namesake’ also got rave reviews from the critics. However, the 2 films which brought him another level of respect as an actor altogether, are undoubted ‘The Lunch Box’ and ‘Paan Singh Tomar’. While the former won the prestigious Grand Rail d’Or at the International Critics’ Week at the Cannes Film Festival, 2013, along with him winning the Asian Film Award for Best Actor, the latter got Irfan his first National Award as Best Actor (2012). He also won another. Irfan is like an old wine, getting better with age. At 50, he gave two of the most delectable films this year – ‘Hindi Medium’ and ‘Qarib Qarib Single’. Along with various milestones in his Hindi film career, he has also acted in International films like ‘Jurassic World’, ‘Life of Pi’, ‘New York, I Love You’ and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’.
No list of Top 10 Bollywood Actors is complete without including the “Khiladi Kumar”.
Well, to begin with, he is a perfect blend of hard work and patience. Honestly speaking, his career in the 90s was not all that smooth sailing. With 2 hits, ‘Hera Pheri’ and ‘Dhadkan’, in his bag, at the turn of the century, his career suddenly took off like never before. Giving blockbusters like ‘Namastey London’, ‘Singh is King’, ‘Rowdy Rathore’ was a tough job indeed! Along with commercial success, he nailed his performances in movies like ‘Special 26’, ‘Holiday’, ‘Airlift’, ‘Rustom’, ‘Padman’ and recently ‘Gold’, which deliver a social message alongside entertainment and made people, think about various social issues. Akshay knows how to play his game! He is truly at the best phase of his career right now and from here, he can only go up!
You just can’t take your eyes off him!
The ‘Greek God of Bollywood’ debuted with his romantic blockbuster ‘Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai’ and intoxicated the nation with his charm. From The iconic step from ‘Ek paal ka jina’ to ‘Bang Bang’ he made the world groove with his swaggy dance-steps. He changed the way a Bollywood male actor looked on-screen during that time. However, with great expectations comes great responsibility. And then came ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ which changed everything! Over the years, Hrithik Roshan has become one of the biggest stars of Bollywood with films like ‘Guzaarish’, ‘Dhoom 2’, ‘Jodha Akbar’, ‘Agneepath’ ‘Zindegi Na Milegi Dobara’, ‘Kaabil’ and has been praised by critics and audiences alike for his versatility. However, we still believe his best is yet to come!
Ladies! Grab your chair. Coz here is the man who can blow you away with his charm!
Say what you will about his antics or bizarre fashion statements, but you have to admit that Ranveer Singh has always got his ‘A-Game’ on when it comes to acting. He is an actor who made his own luck and rose due to his talent, not his legacy.
The 32-year-old actor made his debut in Hindi cinema with 2010 film “Band Baaja Baarat”. ‘The Powerhouse of Bollywood’, Ranveer, has also become SLB’s favorite for the nail-biting characters he played in ‘Ramleela’, ‘Bajirao Mastani’ for which he received critical acclamation and also bagged honorable awards. No wonder he is getting all the accolades for his portrayal of ‘Alauddin Khilji’ in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmavat’ and is one of the greatest method actors of this generation. And we are not surprised to see him making in the list of ‘Top 10 Bollywood Actors’.
We are sure you never expected Ayushman Khurana to make the Top 10 Bollywood Actors list. But this si true, thhis actor-singer combo-pack has become the most lovable boy-next-door.
He makes us fall in love with his voice over and over again. Nobody plays the small-town guy better than Ayushmann. He started his career with unconventional films such as ‘Vicky Donor’ and ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ – and he believes that his choice of roles has paid off for him. And he proved that not once but twice in his films – ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Savdhan’ last year. He has aced the movies that have quirky subjects and that show a mirror to the society. In his 5-year-long career, the VJ-turned-actor has established himself in B-Town and two of his films have also bagged National Film Awards.
An honest charmer, a man with good looks in his genes; an actor who is not afraid of taking risks and experimenting with his characters; a superstar who doesn’t believe in a cast-type or image, Ranbir Kapoor surely has it all and this ‘all’ puts him out of the league of contemporaries.
Ranbir is not one to be cast into a mould. The famous ‘Kapoor Launda’ has been in Bollywood for a decade but has already proven himself with some top-notch performances. Be it as the love-stricken singer in ‘Rockstar’, or as the deaf and mute Barfi in ‘Barfi’, or as the rich spoilt brat who comes of age in ‘Wake Up Sid’, Ranbir has played each character with a lot of depth and sincerity. The young Kapoor lad has proved his mettle in the acting front and has surely been one of the most exciting Bollywood actors of the 21st century and his ‘Kapoor clan’ good looks and appeal have further helped him on his road to stardom. He has already won million hearts and has bagged innumerable awards. Looking at the way he is going, there are surely going to be many more in the future!
We can never skip ‘Bhaijan of B-town’ in the ‘Top 10 Bollywood Actors’ list.
Ruling the industry for over years, the masculine hunk has presented Bollywood with such ‘n’ number of movies. Giving blockbusters like ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun..!’, ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, ‘ The Dabangg series’, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijan’, ‘Tere Naam’’ he has proved his mettle in all genres. Even the ‘Page 3’ actor also paved his way through the reality show ‘Big Boss’ playing an amazing host. This show has also created an endless buzz amongst the audience. We still hope to witness Bhaijan giving such blockbusters and win the hearts of the audience as usual.
