Top Bollywood Actors in India: 2015

The first list of Top Actors of 2015 is finally here. Who are the biggest gainers? Which actor has dropped down the list? Let’s find out!

We have decided to make our ranking system the most comprehensive in the industry. We will be analysing the box office collections of the Top 15 actors. The ranking system will also be divided into three; Top Actor in India, Overseas and Worldwide. The list below is for the Top 15 Actors in India i.e the domestic market only.

  • The list would be based on the net box office collections of an actor’s last five movies. For younger actors, the minimum number of films is 3.
  • Only lead roles would be considered. Cameos, special appearances and guest appearances won’t be taken under consideration. Non-commercial and art films like ‘Dhobi Ghat’ have also not been considered.
  • Dated movies that released before 2007 have not been considered.
  • Only domestic box office collections is being taken into account. Collections from all regional versions have been taken into considering as this list is for the top actors in India and regional language releases affect Hindi business in their respective states. For example, Tamil version will affect business of Hindi version in Tamilnadu / Kerala circuit.

Top Actors In Bollywood 2015

Aamir Khan Actor

Rank 1 Aamir Khan: With Rajkumar Hirani’s PK expected to collect around Rs 340 crore, the last 5 movies of Aamir Khan have now collected a record-breaking Rs 1,036 crore. To put that into perspective, the collections of Aamir’s last 5 movies is almost the same as the combined business of Hrithik and Akshay’s last 5 films! As things stand today, Aamir is way ahead of Salman and SRK too. The average collections of each Aamir Khan film is Rs 207 crore!

  • PK – 340 cr
  • Dhoom 3 - 285 cr
  • Talaash - 93 cr
  • 3 Idiots - 202 cr
  • Ghajini - 116 cr
  • Next film – Not signed
  • Total - 1036 cr (Average per film: 207.2 cr)

Salman Khan Actor

Rank 2. Salman Khan has dropped down the list for the first time in the last 4 years. He does more films than Aamir and his mediocre films go on to be hugely successful at the box office. Salman has two big releases this year and both are festive releases. Bajrangi Bhaijaan releases during Eid and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo will release during Diwali. If Salman has to beat Aamir with his Eid release, then Bajrangi Bhaijaan has to collect Rs 338 crore at the box office. Ironically, the last time a Salman Khan – Kabir Khan film released, they fell short of the highest grosser of all time (3 Idiots) by just 3 crore! If they achieve the same result again, Salman will top. Improbable but not impossible!

  • Kick - 233 cr
  • Jai Ho - 112 cr
  • Dabangg 2 - 154 cr
  • Ek Tha Tiger - 199 cr
  • Bodyguard - 145 cr
  • Next film – Bhajrangi Bhaijaan
  • Total - 843 crore (Average per film: 168.6 cr)

Shahrukh Khan Actor

Rank 3. Shahrukh Khan has dropped down to No 3 in the domestic markets, as his latest release ‘Happy New Year’ couldn’t match the collections of Chennai Express or Kick. While Fan is unlikely to be a record-breaking grosser due to its release date, SRK’s rumoured film with Rohit Shetty during Christmas could shatter records.

  • Happy New Year – 204 cr
  • Chennai Express - 227 crore
  • Jab Tak Hai Jaan - 121 cr
  • Don 2 - 112 cr
  • Ra. One - 125 cr
  • Next film – Fan
  • Total - 789 crore (Average per film: 157.8 cr)

Akshay Kumar Actor

Rank 4. The release of Bang Bang temporarily took Hrithik ahead of SRK at the domestic box office, but before Bang Bang finished its run, Happy New Year had already released in theatres. Hrithik’s average of 134 cr is fantastic, comparable to the Khans even though he doesn’t always get to release his films during Eid, Diwali or Christmas. To elaborate a little more on this, out of the last 5 films, all SRK films have released during one of the three festivals, except Jai Ho all Salman films have released during the three most lucrative periods in the industry and Aamir Khan too has preferred to release his films during Christmas (all except Talaash). Hrithik got just one Diwali release for Krrish 3 and made the most of it. He will be missing from action in 2015, as his next release is Ashutosh Gowariker’s Mohenjodaro (Jan 2016).

  • Bang Bang – 181 cr
  • Krrish 3 - 244 cr
  • Agneepath - 122 cr
  • Zindagi Naa Milegi Dobara - 93 cr
  • Guzaarish - 32 cr
  • Next film – Mohenjo Daro
  • Total - 672 cr (Average per film: 134.4 cr)

Ranbir Kapoor Actor

Rank 5: Ranbir Kapoor – Besharam was expected to take a good start at the box office and it did, what with the film collecting close to Rs 20 crore on its opening day. But the response was so bad that the film ended with lifetime business of less than 60 crore. It was arguably the worst received biggie of 2013, as even a film like Himmatwala held up better over the weekend.

  • Besharam - 57 cr
  • Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - 188 cr
  • Barfi! - 106 cr
  • Rockstar - 70 cr
  • Anjaana Anjaani - 41 cr
  • Next film – ROY
  • Total - 462 cr (Average per film: 92.4 cr)

Rank 6: Action Jackson has failed at the box office, which has hurt Ajay’s standing in the industry and also raised the dreaded question once again – Can Ajay deliver a big grosser without Rohit Shetty? The question is asked for a reason – outside a film directed by Rohit Shetty, Ajay’s average for the last 5 films drops from Rs 80.8 cr per film to Rs 56 crore per film. The actor will be missing from action this year as he begins work on his second directorial venture – Shivaay.

  • Action Jackson (57 cr)
  • Singham Returns (140 cr)
  • Satyagraha (58 cr)
  • Himmatwala (46 cr)
  • Son of Sardaar (103 cr)
  • Next film – Shivaay
  • Total: 404 cr (Average per film: 80.8 cr)

Rank 7 Akshay Kumar: With films like Baby, Gabbar and Brothers, Akshay has a strong line-up of films. If all three films do well, he could even challenge Ranbir Kapoor for a place in the Top 5.

  • Entertainment – 72 cr
  • Holiday: A Solider Is Never Off Duty – 113 cr
  • Boss – 54 cr
  • Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbaai Dobaara – 61 cr
  • Special 26 – 69 cr
  • Next film – Baby
  • Total Collections: 369 cr (Average per film: 73.8 cr)

Rank 8 Sidharth Malhotra: Quickly emerging as one of the most popular stars in the country, Sidharth Malhotra commands a huge following on social media websites like Twitter and Facebook. His last release, Ek Villain, was a huge success at the box office. He deserves credit even though the presence of Mohit Suri as director, Ritiesh Deshmukh and chartbuster music helped big time.

  • Ek Villain - 103 cr
  • Hasee Toh Phasee - 35 cr
  • Student Of The Year - 70 cr
  • Next film – Brothers
  • Total Collections – 208 cr (Average per film: 69.3 cr)

Rank 9 Varun Dhawan: Varun has featured in 3 films so far in his career and all have done well at the box office. His upcoming release ‘Badlapur’ will be a test for sure!

  • Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania – 77 cr
  • Main Tera Hero - 54 cr
  • Student Of The Year - 70 cr
  • Next film – Badlapur
  • Total Collections – 201 cr (Average per film: 67 cr)

Rank 10 John Abraham: John is no longer a solo star. Multi-starrers like Race 2 and Housefull 2 are his biggest grossers. In an ensemble star cast like the upcoming Welcome Back, he is still a force to be reckoned with. He has replaces Akshay in ‘Hera Pheri 3’.

  • Madras Café - 45 cr
  • Shootout at Wadala - 62 cr
  • I, Me aur Main - 9 cr
  • Race 2 - 102 cr
  • Housefull 2 - 114 cr
  • Next film – Welcome Back
  • Total Collections – 332 cr (Average per film: 66.4 cr)

Rank 11 Saif Ali Khan: Happy Ending was one of the biggest disasters of 2014 and the failure of a film that was expected to recreate the magic of ‘Cocktail’, has meant that Saif is currently going through the worst phase of his career. He awaits the release of Phantom later this year.

  • Happy Ending – 22 cr
  • Humshakals - 63 cr
  • Bullet Raja- 36 cr
  • Race 2 - 102 cr
  • Cocktail - 78 cr
  • Next film - Phantom
  • Total - 301 cr (Average per film: 60.2 cr)

Rank 12 Ranveer Singh: Even though Kill Dil failed at the box office, Ranveer Singh has gained one spot in the list. He is currently ranked No 12, but has two of the most promising films of 2015 in Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani.

  • Kill Dil – 32 cr
  • Gunday – 78 cr
  • Ram Leela - 115 cr
  • Lootera - 31 cr
  • Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl - 38 cr
  • Forthcoming film - Dil Dhadakne Do
  • Total Collections – 294 cr (Average per film: 58.8 cr)

Rank 13 Arjun Kapoor: The poor performance of Tevar has resulted in Arjun Kapoor dropping one spot down the list to No 13. There are reports that he could sign a film with Yash Raj Films, but it remains to be seen what sort of impact the failure of Tevar has on his career.

  • Tevar – 40 cr (expected)
  • Finding Fanny – 36 cr
  • 2 States - 102 cr
  • Gunday - 78 cr
  • Aurangzeb - 23 cr
  • Forthcoming film - Not signed
  • Total Collections – 279 cr (Average per film: 55.8 cr)

Rank 14 Shahid Kapoor: The critical and commercial success of Haider has helped Shahid Kapoor go one spot up in the ranking. He sneaks ahead of Emraan Hashmi.

  • Haider – 58 cr
  • R.. Rajkumar - 65 cr
  • Phata Poster Nikhla Hero - 39 cr
  • Teri Meri Kahaani - 29 cr
  • Mausam - 33 cr
  • Forthcoming film - Shaandar
  • Total Collections – 224 cr (Average per film: 44.8 cr)

Rank 15 Emraan Hashmi: The disastrous performance of Raja Natwarlal and Ungli at the box office earlier this year has pushed Emraan to the bottom of the list. The gap between Emraan and Shahid has also considerably widened.

  • Ungli – 21 cr
  • Raja Natwarlal – 27 cr
  • Ghanchakkar - 39 cr
  • Ek Thi Daayan - 27 cr
  • Jannat 2 - 54 cr
  • Forthcoming film - Mr X
  • Total collections – 168 cr (Average per film: 33.6 cr)

    @ishan galti,prove ho gaya ji.KING KHAN got 14 FILMFARE ,while chotu has 3.national awards has stulidity only,they are choosing hum tum over swades so national awards are utter non sense.

    @227well said bro.

    @hrithik,yes I did wrong.but you said KING KHAN got blockbusters after so many years (after 5 years) while your actor struggled to get after 10+ years.isn’t you said wrong at that time?

  • @hrithik when salman deed movies with david dhavn, suraj badjatya its not safe ??? Amir try to again work with indra kumar dharmesh darshan mansoor but bombs whose fault is that ??? Is not it safe ??? why dont u raise question for pk bajrangi bhaijaan and blockbuster south remake copycats ??? How much u try to show srk down u eventually make him up the way and above salmir…

  • On the badis of 100,200,300 founder Gulati says amir is big ??? Gulati asks how many records srk have ??? are bhaiyaa rohot makes 200 twise but he cant rate ahead kohli so as lara sehvag do not rate ahead sachin…

  • @Hrithik, you rocks bro.
    @227 or 420.
    Ok! Let clarified between salman and srk with debutant director.
    Salman have 5 blockbuster movie with debutant director.
    4.Dabangg 2

    Srk only 3 movie
    3.CDI. which all movie from big banner. Lol take this.|.

  • @sss Mental health of you SRK fans is at an all time low after the success of PK(Critics + Box Office) and failure of HNY(Critics + Box Office) that you are calling National Awards non-sense and Magazine awards like Filmfare and Stardust sensible.
    God bless you, guys. *ROFLMAO*

  • @myanmar, ha ha,I think you drunked baby.

    Sallu’s 1st movie mpk is from big banner rajshri productions, 4 are south remakes,even akki can give bb with south remake then why not salman who is releasing aouth remakes in holidays ,lol.

    While YRF / DP were never consudered as biggest productions before working with KING KHAN.YRF got HIS 1ST ATBB/BB with KING KHAN,so as DP also got it’s 1ST ATBB/BB with KING KHAN.

    salman’s movies with debutants:

    Mpk: big banner
    dabang,bg,kick: south remake
    dabang2: bhojpuri masala genre movie+christmas

    KING KHAN’S MOVIES with debutants


    now your bhai can’t give a hit with a classic film now a dday and give a hit with out masla genre/south he is a weakest actor with no stardom,so you people are not our levels for doing a comparison.KING KHAN is comparing with BIGB/DILLIPJI .salman is not eligible for comparison with HIM.

    @ishan gulati,what’s your problem? tour great national jurys gave national award to films Like hum tum over SWADES?so they are enough to making fun of themselves,I’m just a people who showed you and your national award ‘s real face on mirror.even RA ONE also got one national award,lol.

    Filmfare is the oldest award in India even before national award started ,that’s why it is called as MOTHER OF ALL AWARDS.If any one can’t respect it then he is nothing besides a big mental patient.ROFL on them.

    Because only LEGENDS/GENERATION RULERS are able to achieve it:

    BIGB: 8FF
    KING SRK:14 FF and continuing

    So bro,so much blabbering can’t help you.what KING KHAN achieves in lifetime,that can’t be achievable by your little star and kindly put it into your mind.

  • @sss dabangg was not a remake and yrf is has always bin a big production house without SRK and there is no positives in doing remakes it affects the buisness of 6-7 crs from,south @227 in the year 2000 and 2003 Hrithik topped not SRK and we all know that Salman has a record of most highest no. Of highest grossers in a single year

  • Look at the 100 Most Popular Celebrities of the world in IMDb site , you will get the answer. SRK on 89, Amitabh on 95, Amir on 99 and Rajnikanth on 100.. Thats tell you everything. SRK is face of modern Indian Cinema but Amir is catching up very fast. Sad but its True

  • I’m a girl
    Here I wanna state that
    I’m no good finding information
    Neither highest paid nor box office
    What I knew is
    The chance and the observation from me n me

    Here my heart says
    10.not yet seen

    Like I’ve told you only from my various watch that’s what I’ve seen
    The money and fame could goes up and down
    But longterm is future hold
    I’ve never had the chance to watch Bollywood
    Anyone can show me link or offer me good movies
    And I love Bollywood seniors
    It just that they need more Good script more Good storyline more Good costar more promotion cuz here in Malaysia it so hard keep in touch with it and I’m so heartbroken each time left behind by the movies cus I couldn’t afford to
    Somehow they manipulate the movies by sexy wardrobe for actress and overreacted romance which we could easily found in Hollywood
    I just want more appreciation and opportunity to watch Bollywood in more modest kind of way and I do believe the director and the crew could find the way
    I’m so touched when others claim to put down the Bollywood movies rank just because they always copied movies from south masala western whatsoever
    I love Bollywood and I believe its capability
    Please do more good films and we would never get bored even I am myself never bored
    Sometimes its give me confident and spirit to back at normal or being more enthusiast
    Thanks director cast crew and fans from all over the globe
    Hi hi :)

[ 39 ] [ 40 ]In 2002 he starred in the delayed release Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam.
    For Tere Naam, (2003) Taran Adarshsaid of him, “Salman Khan is exceptional in a role that fits him to the T. He breathes fire in sequences that demand uneasiness. But beneath the tough exterior lies a vulnerable person and this facet in particular comes to the fore in the latter reels. His emotional outbursts are splendid…” [ 41 ] Tere Naamis to date considered Salman Khan’s best film with critically acclaimed performance. [ 42 ] [ 43 ]He subsequently continued his success at the box office, with comedies like Mujhse Shaadi Karogi(2004) and No Entry(2005).

The show got very high TRPs for Sony Entertainment Televisionand according to reports, the show helped Sony TV regain its third position in the Indian television ratings. [ 46 ]
    2009–present: commercial success
    2009 marked a significant turning point in Khan’s career. Starting with Wanted, directed by choreographer turned director Prabhu Devabecame a box office success and earned superhit status.
