Top 100 Best Bollywood Actors Of All Time

Greatest Bollywood Actors of All time

Bollywood has a very long history. Over a period of more than 100 years Indian cinema has given many timeless and classic films. Bollywood might have been criticized for not giving chances to new talents at right time yet it is acceptable fact that Indian cinema has produced some of the finest actors of all time. As Bollywood has influence on people of India so many actors are worshiped like god by the fans. Here I have made a list of Top 100 Best Bollywood actors of all time. I have tried to make this list as unbiased as possible. You will find a wide variety of talented actors in the list. You will find the obvious choices (actors who are universally accepted as face of Hindi Cinema). You will also find actors who not only got critical acclaim in Indian movies but were also praised for their contribution to Hollywood films. You will also find actors who were praised on Big screen but found more popularity and fan following from small screen (TV).

There were various factors and standards that were kept in mind while making this list. We did not include any actor just on the basis of because he is handsome, have tall height and super hero physique. We did not chose actors just because his films are able to earn 100 crore in a week or so. Though the above two factors did contributed in ranking but the only factor which was the major standard was – method acting. Many Indian actors developed their own unique and distinct style in acting and they became popular for that. In fact many dialogues became popular in Indian cinema just because of the actor who quote them. We have also included actors who were popular in south Indian cinema more but also were praised for their acting in Bollywood Films.

    • Mr. X
      July 30, 2013 at 10:35 PM #

      Hello Prabhjot Sir,

      KL saigal surely was a Great Star. Most Indian audience dont know about him as all his movies dates back before independence. Frankly i haven’t seen any of his movies and all actors listed here are reviewed by us. Our team will surely take a note of KL Saigal. Thanks for your suggestion.

  4. August 13, 2013 at 3:35 PM #

    Dilip kumar is #1 , Srk is #2 both have 8 filmfare award for best actor , Amithab is 3 and Amir khan is on #14 , ITs the original arrangement of bollywood top 100 actor in 100 years

    • hera
      August 17, 2013 at 7:27 AM #

      Amir Khan must be number 1 followed by Big B on number 2 then SRK then the rest of actors

    • hera
      August 17, 2013 at 7:34 AM #

      it is not depending on how much the actor get filmfare award because Indian awards are fake and useless and faithless. .but the real ranking is depending on the value of the actor..and it is so real to put both Amir Khan and Amitab Bachan in the top 2 because they are the most great actors in all time in bollywood. .SRK never pass or never come before the perfectionist and Big B

        no other than shahrukh as he is the real face of bollywood. truly he has globalized our film industry everywhere in the world. he is the only face who is recognised everywhere. every celeberity is asked to be verified at usa airport even our ministers n its not a news when srk is asked for d same its a news all over d world so he is no 1 of all filmindustries even of hollywood.

      Lemme give u a lil info on awards Filmfare awards nowadays have lost there value except once in a blue moon they do come up with good results as in case of barfi n bhaag milkha bhaag ..now according to me SRK did not deserve an award for dtph or for kkhh now that makes his count down to six and I am being liberal here ..dilip Saab has eight of them n he truly deserved them …Amitji has 5 to his name all well deserved and four national awards and let me tell u one national award = 10 Filmfare awards ..so there u have it according to me both amitji n dilip Saab deserve the top spot !! Peace out !!

    salman should be in top five

    • amin
      November 10, 2014 at 9:58 PM #

      Everyone likes salman because of his style which is by far the best. But I think everyone knows that Salman isn’t really good in acting. His movies go superhit because of the action and fighting scenes and his style but that’s not part of real acting.

    • jan
      December 24, 2014 at 3:19 PM #

      salman should be in top five from bottom of the list.

      Dilip saab should be on 1 st because he is oxford of industry and amitab,srk,aamir follow dlip saab only pls think about this . I dont appreciate with ur list.dlip sir is original bollywood king. Baadshah and shenshah

      haha …. Child when Amitabh started acting shah rukh was child, as Amitabh is still ruling …. so this list only when shah rukh become 72 and able to perform like Bachchan, ….not possible for SRK…. those who prepared the list has more mind and reasech than you….

  16. C
    December 26, 2013 at 9:10 PM #

    I think your list is generally very good. I would certainly agree with Amitabh Bachchan being first.Then for me, it would be Dilip Kumar, then Shahrukh Khan followed by Rajesh Khanna.

  17. Sameer Bhate
    December 28, 2013 at 8:48 AM #

    No one to beat The one & only Amitabh Bachan. All Superlatives go with him. I think there are only 2 Towering Personalities in India.
    1. Amitabh Bachan
    2. Sachin Tendulkar
    great contribution in their respective feilds.
    Thanks & Regards, Sameer Bhate

    You said bollywood actors!! I believe so you considered most of the south Indian actors like mohanlal, mamooty, kamal hassan etc on the basis of their acting in hindi films ..otherwise you know what i mean..

  21. Akash Deshpande
    January 25, 2014 at 7:28 PM #

    So glad to see Aamir, my most favorite at 2nd position and also glad to see Amitabhji on 1st position! They both deserve that!
    They both are too much better than srk.Only two films of srk were extraordinary which are Chak de India and swades, were too many movies of both Aamir and Amitabhji were extraordinary!

    Salman Khan, Raj kapoor & Rishi Kapoor should be in the top 10 based on there track record, acting & fan following.

    January 29, 2014 at 4:04 AM #

    I really like the list but as a guy from theatre I have a great deal of respect for naseer sir as well .. According to me the top 3 actors have to be Amitji ,Dilip Saab n naseer sir these guys are legends !! All the other actors follow afterwards in today’s generation all the actors cope these three icons !!

    February 8, 2014 at 6:52 AM #

    I do not agree with this list
    1. Ranbir is not and will never be better that Mammooty he doesn’t have the experrience or his skills
    2. Mohan lal is not better that Mammooty
    3. Shahrukh Khan IS better that Amir

      Shahrukh is the best actors in the world
      He is a only acting king
      Jab amitabh jaisa bada actor man gaya ki sahrukh me wo baat hai wo acting hai kise koi nahi kar sakta mai kahta hu karna chahe to uski puri jindagi nikal jayeg lekin nahi kar sakta duniya wale tum bhi maan jao srk is best of the world

    • sharanya
      November 18, 2014 at 2:30 PM #

      Ranbir Kapoor is awesome & so his acting skills..mammooty & ranbir are different & have different style but ranbir is a lot more successful

    February 15, 2014 at 10:16 PM #

    There is a difference between “actors” and “entertainers”…

    A list of top actors should be focused on acting versatility, experimental roles, innate talent and offers a natural screen output.

    Based on this, Nana Patekar and Shashi Kapoor should be much higher. Hritik Roshan is on his way up…

    It is too difficult to compare actors of different generations, but my top pure actor and top pure entertainer are as follows:

    Top Actor – Aamir Khan of the 1990-present
    Top Entertainer – SRK of the 1990-present

    No matter how many awards u get /// no matter whether your film does 100 crore business or not//// It all depends on how much u love your work,, how great u r when it comes to acting //your fan following , your success and love and affection which u get from people.

    No. of awards dont make the difference.. AAmir khan and A bachan – they both are superstars including late Mr. rajesh khanna.

    5 – Dilip Kumar
    6 – Om Puri.

    Hi, I’m not Indian but i have seen LOT of bollywood movies!!!!!!!!!! And for me, I’ll put Rajesh Khanna before SRk and Aamir. May be before or Equal to Amitabh. Actually Both are my favorites!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But the thing is that it’s really difficult to be objective! Those 4 are the best according to me.
    And thanks for taking the time to make this list.

          And what about dharmendra..he was a superstar and even amitabh was given supporting roles in front of him..he left the industrt because he got paralyzed and when he came back he didn’t got good roles..but according to hrishikesh mukherji dharmendra was the best actor of that time..he should be in top5 and naseerudin Shah irfan Khan took our movies internationally ..they are international faces ..they should be in top 5..not fake actors like shahrukh and Salman coz they are not actors they are stars who can’t act..

    suniel shetty should have been under 30, i mean he is far better than tusshar kapoor, chunkey pandey and many others …..rest of the ranking is okk…also dilip kumar is better than all the khans,so obvious…

    Honestly I haven’t watched many old movies before 1995. I think actors should be categorized about the the time they made movies.
    Like Dilip Kumar, Big B, Rajesh Khanna, Dev Anand…
    because if you watched (giving an example) Hasee Toh Phasee in 1960 and then watched Sholay in 2014 you would practically dislike Sholay and love Hasee Toh Phasee
    See what I mean you can’t categorize everyone.
    Since I can’t say about the old movies I think that this would be my list:
    1. SRK
    2. Aamir Khan
    3. Akshay Kumar
    4. Salman Khan
    5. Hrithik Roshan
    6. Ajay Devgan
    7. Shahid Kapoor
    8. Ranbir Kapoor
    9. Ritiesh Deshmukh
    10. Saif Ali Khan

    New Actor List:

    1. Ranveer Singh
    2. Varun Dhawan
    3. Arjun Kapoor
    4. Siddarth Malhotra
    5. Ayushmann Khurrana

    Everyone has different opinions and this is mine

    • Iron Man
      August 27, 2014 at 1:19 AM #

      And one more thing the only reason I put Salman Khan 4th is because of Ek Tha Tiger
      Otherwise his movie are only hits because he in some scene goes topless and because of B.O.
      If he didn’t have a B.O. or his body his would be a flop actor

    August 27, 2014 at 1:24 PM #

    O hello Srk is no.1. No doubt he’s the king of bollywood aur usi ki waga sa ya industry survive Kare ha and salman khan is a khusra he can’t act he’s a lame he’s only a model he should be in top 80_100 category he also has the highest no of flops 49 hahaha itni zada flops to Johnny lever ki bhi Nai hungi lol

    thanx fr this list. bt i m sorry i beg to differ. amir khan is awsm no doubt.bt how can he come bfr SRK? a boy with no family background struggled and struggeled hard to reach the top.srk is a perfect blend of good acting ,stardom and charishma….action romance emotion fiction drama commedy antagonist protagonist -in every aspect in every role he shines even today.so i m sorry to differ….with all due respect i must say SHAHRUKH KHAN should b there at the zenith…he is the real king of bollywood..i will love to have ur thoughts respected writer(who has made this list)

    My previous post was deleted. This list should say only actors in hindi language. If this list doesnt have Kamal Hassan and Mamooty in top 3. I dont thik anybody in this forum has seen their movies. There is no actor of this generation that can come close to what these 2 have done. Remeber SRK wanted to a act with kamal in HeyRam just to learn from the master. so dont even debate if you dont know about south indian actors.

    Akshay kumar is the most versatile actor of bollywood. Paresh rawal, govinda, om puri, jeetu and others are not so famous but this list is about quality!!
    I prefer shahrukh khan out to 100!!

  77. jyoti khawas
    December 13, 2014 at 5:40 PM #

    i think ajay devgan should be at no 2 becoz he is only the actor to win national award after amitab bachhan.. if not these are all fake…

    Shahrukh Khan is my favourite, and I think he should be on no. 2 bcoz of versatility. He does negative roles with the same intensity as romantic role. Aamir khan is not good with negative roles.

  92. atharva
    February 15, 2015 at 7:56 PM #

    Oh plz srk should be kicked out of this list. He’s just a star. He overacts sooo much. If u see films like oso, pbdhh, kank, etc,(in short, all his films)
    The real top 10 in terms of REAL acting talent is:
    1. Kamal Hassan
    2. Dilip Kumar
    3. Naseeruddin shah
    4. Om puri
    5. Aamir Khan
    6. Irfan khan
    7. Pankaj kapoor
    8. Raj kapoor
    9. Nana patekar
    10. Ajay Devgan
    P.S. – I m a huuuuge aamir khan fan but as u noticed i put him 5th in the list unlike srk fans who completely overlook all others who have done and accomplished much more than him in terms of VERSATILITY if anyone still wishes to argue. As for the filmfare awards, S(REW them big time. Everybody knows that they are r!gged.

      February 20, 2015 at 4:04 AM #

  93. sam c
    February 20, 2015 at 4:36 AM #

    According to me , keeping dexterity in acting skill in Bollywood , the following order will be near perfect and logical ………1.PANKAJ KAPOOR 2. OM PURI 3. NASIRUDDIN 4. KAMAL HASAN/GURU DUTTA 5 BALRAJ SAHANI/SANJIB KUMAR 6. IRFAN KHAN 7.AMITABH BACHCHAN/DILIP KUMAR 8. NANA PATEKAR/NAWAJUDDIN 9.RAJ KAOOR/AMAL PALEKAR/ FARUQUE SHEKH 1O. AJAY DEVGN/AMIRKHAN ……………………….I am to have listed in option wise in some cases , as i have to justify them ….though there are/were lots of actors who can steal the show like PARESH RAWAL , ANUPAM KHER, MANOJ BAJPAYEE , OMRESH PURI , KULBHUSHAN KHARBANDA,and manage their place under 10 …but all are famous for character roles unlike the top 10 actors who plays generally lead role ….yes om puri , pankaj kapoor , and nawajuddin did also lead role in their respective time …..

    • sam c
      February 20, 2015 at 4:41 AM #

    • RiaN
      April 14, 2015 at 4:43 AM #

      Ur top 10 is much better because if we just talk about acting they are the serious names. SRK, Amir or salman they are like money making machine but Pankaj kapoor, Nana patekat, Irfan , Faruque shekh they are like acting guru. They may not give you super hit films but they always gives super hit performance. But one more thing i feel Dilip sab and AB no 1 and no2 should b them.
