Bollywood which is criticized for its nepotism and rightly so has provided us with actors like Salman Khan who brings money to the industry but hasn’t really provided great actors in terms of acting skills who can be critically praised all around the world but there are few but best actors who set new heights in Bollywood with their acting skills and performances.
We decided to make a list of Top 10 Best Bollywood actors in terms of acting skills, only actors included are the ones who still act in the movies, giving rank to them was really difficult you may not agree on some of the positions as everyone has their own choices and favourites.
Hope you enjoys the list….!
Best Performance: Sarabjeet, Highway
Latest sensation in Bollywood, no one really had high hopes from him but his performances has been top notch since he has made his debut, he initially played side roles in the movies but almost every time he outshined the lead actors and he can play almost every type of character and counted among the best actors of bollywood.
Best Performance: A Wednesday, Parzania
He is the only one in Bollywood, who without changing his makeup/face styles has done brilliant roles. His contribution to Indian cinema is immense. He played some most significant character roles in the movies of 80s.
Best performances: Hera Pheri, Oh My God, Welcome
One of the most versatile actor of all time, known for giving power packed performances, he made us hate him and love him with ease . Of all the roles, being able to make audience laugh out loud is the most difficult one and he has mastered this trick. Whenever he shows up on screen he just steals the complete show. Lucky to have him.
Best Performances: Rockstar, Wake Up Sid, Barfi, Tamasha, Rajneeti
Gem from Nepotism, he just doesn’t read the scripts and comes to the sets and ready steady film is done, he lives in character if you watch his film he makes you to live the character like he does. He always gives his 100 %, he has got everything that every actor desires. A real high class actor.
Best Performance: Pink, Black, Paa
Tall, handsome, heavy voice and face expressions made him the Biggest Superstar of Bollywood History, I think I don’t need to say much about The Big B. One of those few actors who attracted money to Bollywood and was always good with acting.
Best Performances: My name is khan, Chak de India, Dil Se, Swades
Has most no of Filmfare awards for Best Actor (this actually sums up), I don’t think any Indian Actor has as much expressions as he does. His recent choices of films has been disappointing but no one can deny the roles he had done in past. One of those rare Indian actors who has been critically praised and also attracted huge crowds to the theatre.
Best performances: Ab Tak Chappan , Krantiveeer, Natsamara, Parinda
Nana was once slapped by a fan backstage for playing an evil character in theatre so convincingly that it tormented the audience after the show was over. He has been versatile actor, he has got exceptional facial expressions, voice and dialogue delivery, which make him fit in any character. Be it a funny character or any serious roles he cannot disappoint just impeccable dialogue delivery.
Best Performances: Trapped, Citylights, Shahid, Shaadi Mae Zaroor Aana, Newton, Kai Po Che
One of the Best thing happened to Bollywood in this last decade . He in his very young age has already set new heights to some of roles he did. Most of his films are both critically and commercially acclaimed, he makes you believe in the character he is playing. Hell of an actor.
Best Performances: Talvar, The Lunchbox, Maqbool
Only Indian actor who has made it so far to Hollywood. He has an unassuming, earthy style of acting that makes him fit for almost any role in the world and he does it with such ease. And without much fanfare you never know where he will turn up. The thing I love about Irfan Khan is his effortless acting he could pull out Osama bin Laden from his hideout just by acting like his best friend. Even Tom Hanks said I am big fan of Irfan khan !! What else do you need in life?
Best Performances: Gangs of Wasseypur, Raman Raghav 2.0
Most powerful Indian actor of all time! His acting creates a vibe in the theatre, there is just too much to love about him. His performances are so engaging you can’t ever forget his roles that’s the talent of this man. I can write two pages about praising his skills but you better watch his movies you‘ll know what I am talking.
