  • My fav yestryear star! fav in my list of Best Actors of B’wood..
    2nd is Amit ji & 3rd is my KING S.R.K :* ^_^

  • Aamir khan looks very smart in the glasses and where is badshah of bollywood?? Nobody gives a damn about him?

  • My best 4
    Legend- dilip kumar
    Sahnshah- amit ji
    King of kings- aamir khan
    All time queen- madhuri dixit

  • only 3 ACTORS who RULED their generations:

    Emperor DILIIPJI

    Shahenshah BIGB


    these 3LEGENDS not only are UNDISPUTED CONSISTENT RULER of their generations RULED through out THE CAREER and not raised during a particular year like 2008/2010,but also Globalized of bollywood maximum done by KING SRK. now hope complan star’s fan will not rant why KING SRK is not invited because they have problem with THE KING always whether HE invited or not,lol.

  • I am shocked to see dat The second richest actor in the world is not invited between these 3 small legends!

  • Wow Amir should thanks farah khan who made srk busy in HNY shooting otherwise our lilyput would not have appear in front of legends
    3 undisputed ruler of Bollywood
    Thespian (1953-1973)
    Shahenshah (1973-1993)
    Badashah (1993-20……)

    Some small stars also ruled for perticular period with the help of other stars but could not handled the position ..and eventually fall flat.

  • @sht we should not make excuses now and should accept that Aamir is better actor than our king so he was invited there coz Dilip ji;Big b and Aamir are 3 top actors of bollywood history

  • @bulli go n check Dilip Kumar’s old interview u will get to know who his favorite actor is. yes u guessed it right , its “our king”……

  • @bulli our Amir is not better actor. Our Amir copied king srks MNIK and hritik dhoom act simultaneously but failed miserably. Our Amir can do better role of colledege student in every movie with 3-4 friends But no problem we will call him versatile actor even though he can’t do daar, deewar, bazigar, devdas, don, chakhde, MNIK kind of heavy weight role. Our Amir afraid of comparison with yesteryear actors so he don’t want to remake any classic instead he will go down to south and remake cheap masala gajini so there is less chances of comparing with surya. Maybe Amir sir is waiting for dilip and bachchan who is to delivered their best so that our Amir will remake it. Till then we will not remake but steal script from other movie and make it own just like we did for raja Hindustani (jjpk) and mela (sholey)
    Our Amir have won 2 filmfare but we will call him better than dilip, amitabh and srk even though they won more film fare award because we don’t believe award. We believe those what our Amir sir won. we Amir fan will decide wo is better actor not jury..

  • Amitabh, Dilip Kumar, Dharam ji together. All time greats!

    LOL at Aamir! His height is same as Saira ji!

    Amazing to see Salim Javed at one place.

  • Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu treat SRK like their son and call him their favorite actor. His absence from this event does not mean anything.

  • First picture is outstanding.Legends Dilip kumar,Big b,Dharmendra and Aamir khan in 1 frame and these 4 gems have given most memorable and record breaking movies of bollywood.

  • @Sht 2 reasons Srk might have skipped this event would be that he was not invited or he was not offered money.

  • @bulli, I know a great actor when I see one, I grew up on hollywood movies, old and modern, and I can say that the best actors are the ones that are truly charismatic and have excellent screen presense but most importantly are the most watchable………………… like Jack Nicolson, Tom Cruise, Leoardo Di Caprio, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey, Sean Connery, Charlton Heston etc………….tingu is good but too serious/stiff, SRK is best bollywood actor hands down of current generation, his performances are soo mersmerizing and watchable, he is too good, lallu has good screen presence and was a decent actor in 90’s but now he just plays himself in copy paste remakes, whilst aamir banks mainly off good scripts and directors, SRK performances in Kal Ho Na Ho, Don 2, Darr, Bazzigar, Veer Zara, Chak De, RNBDJ, KANK, MH, Ram Janne, DDLJ, Devdas etc. are truly wonderful performances that took those movies to another level………………………..lallu had one gr8 performance in Tere Naam, those performances will never be forgotten, tingu has one too lagaan, howeever SRK has much more evergreen and wonderful performances than those two, even HR has more better performances that lallu and tingu……………………

  • @trini what nonsense

    Your sarkar list was a joke n how can one blame Aamir for selecting good scripts when every actor should by professional courtesy to their craft should be reading their own scripts before hand n not their secratarys/ managers but guess these actors are either too lazy or dont care aslong as the moneys good. Aamirs deserves the utmost respect for his great selection of roles as opposed to his contemporaries. Simply put you an idiot of the highest calibre- what a joke…!

  • @trini No Al Pacino, No Robert De Niro, No Marlon Brando, No Joe Pesci, No Morgan Freeman….

    You need your eyes testing or you need to rent some real movies kid as opposed to Titanic or American Beauty…! :-P

  • @sachin11,you hate SRK ,that doesn’t make any FACT change.SRK made big productions because before working with SRK those industries are poor and had no single bbs ,aamir is good actor but not better than KING SRK and not as versatile as like KING SRK , the only good thing about amir is his way choosing script with out he couldn’t proved him a good actor.amir has also not bigger stardom like SRK/salman.about few years,salman and amir has very few years of stardom they couldn’t as CONSISTENT RULER as like KING SRK.morever it’s FILMFARE which will decided the TOP3 actors of bollywood of all time:


  • 3 legends of indian cinema dilip ji,big b and SRK. The rulers of their respective generations. Aamir was invited bcoz this event was for veterans who have crossed 30 years or more in Bollywood and are not so successful now… Tingu n lallu were launched in 80’s and came into existence after 2009( tingu) n 2010(lallu) but lallu’s carrier came to an end in 2014( jai ho) and proved lallu was just a star bcoz of eid so will tingu’s carrier end by the end of 2014 when john’s wc will overtake his pk at bo
