Top 12 Actors in Bollywood

Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama has put up a very interesting list of Top 12 Actors in the industry, based on the box office collections of films of each actor, overseas and India combined.

The Top 3 stars have all appeared in 3 films, Aamir Khan as expected tops the list by quite a distance. He is followed by Shahrukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan at 2 and 3. Akshay Kumar is at Number 4 appearing in more than 10 films, followed by Saif Ali Khan and Ranbir Kapoor.

Salman Khan is down at No 7 ahead of Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham, Shahid Kapoor, Imran Khan and Ajay Devgan.

With Veer, My Name Is Khan, Housefull, Kites, Rajneeti set for release in the first half of the year, except some changes in the list.

  • aamir is the king of bollywood ..

    i think sallu’s rank is misleading.. he’s bigger than the likes of ranbir and saif and veer will show that!!

    the thing with sallu, the movie’s about him and his star power whereas ranbir and saif are part of movie packages!! their solo power is weak!!

  • by the end of this year akshay should be heading towards no 2 battling it with srk thats if mnik is successful at the box office, and you also got hrithik with 2 releases kites and guzarish so thats a another interesting thing about it

  • Our pick from the list is Akki, for two reasons

    1) Crap films, critically thrashed yet his average worldwide share is more than half of SRK, Hrithik.
    2) Number of films, 4 times to the Top 3 while maintaining a healthy average – not easy.

    The man has immense star power, but just isn’t smart enough.

  • Agree with u Indicine. with max releases and max flops maintainin such a high standard is difficult..;)

    Have u watched Apsara awards wer he spoke bout big B? It was just amazing..;)

  • Shivalaya, Hrithik is extremely popular both overseas and India. All through the last decade he right up there in the Top 3.

    Zakir, Veer should increase Salman’s average drastically. We’ll put up a similar list after the release of Kites.

  • i dont think, john abraham and shahid kapoor deserves the position better than ajay devagan..
    if u see the acting skills then it is not the right list….

  • Vishal:
    this is chart is not about acting skills. this is about world wide collections. if u will acting in one movie and that movie will get 250 cr then u will be on top. and if this chart was about inbetween 2002-2004 then amir khan was on num 20 becuase in these years he didnt release any movie.
    there is very big mistake which i want to tell u guys
    this chart is from 2007 to 2009 .
    and in this period Hritik did only 1 movie which was Jodha Akbar . i dont know why taran included his 2 releases from 2006 ( Krishh and Dhoom 2). if every actor has 3 years then why Hritik has 4 ?
    if we include 2006 then Aamir had to super hit ( RDB and Fanna ) Akki had Pher Hera Pheri and Bhagambhag
    Srk had KANK and Don . and Shahid had Vivah which was blockbuster.
    it is not fair that every one has 3 years and Duggu had 4.
    i know he released only 1 movie in last 3 years , but is it my fault ?? is it his fan’s fault ????
