    • kabhi ha kabhi na and Raju ban gaya gentleman is the SRK innocent performance is the best one….to win heart.

  1. Almost all of them are so accurate.Just feel John’s was better in Dhoom( though he is pretty much expressionless in all his movies) and also please start including Sanjay Dutt in the list..He has had some really good performances as well..I loved him in Munnabhai and Agneepath..Btw wasn’t Ranbir better in Barfi??

    • nice comment… in barfi, ranbir was very good.. but in rockstar, he was exceptional.. very complex character and he portrayed it so beautiful.. the emotion, anger, madness etc.. very good actor..

  2. Amir khan- Rang de basanti
    Salman khan – Maine pyar kiya
    Ajay devgan – Hum dil de chuke sanam
    Akshay Kumar – Hey baby
    Srk- Rab ne bana di jodi
    Saif – Omkara.

    • Bolly arena you should have asked us to vote.. coz i think my name is khan is the best performance of SRK till date… and for Aamir it would be PK

  3. Comment: Really John for Jism ? His best performance is Taxi No. 9211 acc to me.
    Akshay Kumar – Aankhen Special 26 Baby Airlift Holiday etc

  4. Salman – Tere Naam
    Shahrukh – chak de india
    Amir – 3 idiots
    Akshay – Hera Pheri
    Ajay Devgan – Legend of bhagat Singh
    Shahid – Haider
    Sanjay Dutt – Munna Bhai
    Saif – Omkara
    Ranbir Kapoor- Rockstar
    John – Force
    Raveer Singh – BM
    Varun – Badlapur

  5. According to me…
    SRK in Veer Zara
    Akki – Janwar and Sangharsh
    Ajay devgan – a lot of movie but Zakham is best
    Amir khan – Rang de basanti
    Salman khan- Bajrangi bhaijaan
    Ranvir kapoor- barfi and Rockstar
    Sahid kapoor- Haidar
    Hritik Roshan – koi Mil gya and Jodha Akbar
    John Abraham – No smoking

  6. srk : chak de india.

    akshay : hera pheri.
    hrithik : dhoom 2.

    • HAHAAAA We don’t care about the collections we talk bout the content…:)
      what’s wrong do you feel sad because there is no movie of Ranveer ?
      Don’t worry befikre is the best movie ever xD

  10. Aamir Khans Lagaan Perfomance,His Expression & His Transformation is One of the Best Perfomance of Indian Cinema Even His ‘Pk’ & ‘RDB’ perfomances are Better than the BEST.
    AKSHAY-BABY & HeraPheri
    Hrithik-Koi Mil Gaya & Gujarish
    Rest Agree.

  11. Acc to me :
    SRK : Devdas (i don’t know why i love it a lot) Chak de – DDLJ – MNIK – Raees – Swades…..HNY..ok i was kidding xD
    Aamir – 3idiots- Dangal – Lagaan – Dhoom 3
    Salman – Bajrangi bhaijaan – tere naam “Don’t expect more from me about salman..”

  12. I think only one film if i select career best than-
    SRK- kuch kuch hota hai
    Salman-Hum apke hain kaun
    Akshay-Hera pheri

  13. Aamir …

    bhagt singh

    • He has more best actor awards than the amount not of movies you have picked for SRK, and SRK Salman Akshay and Ajay have many more movies than that! Why are you being partial towards Aamir Khan great actor but he doesn’t have more movies than any other actor on your list because he hasn’t done many movies in his career just do top 3 so it makes more sense for everyone! Can’t believe you put down ISHQ for Aamir Khan and forgot to put the classic Andaz Apna Apna, you obviously are an Aamir Khan fan because of his box office collections otherwise you would never forget Andaz Apna Apna!

    • SRK
      kabhi haan kabhi naa
      raju ban gaya gentleman
      phir bhi dil hai hindustani
      kal ho na ho
      chalte chalte
      veer zara
      chak de india
      rab ne bana di jodi
      my name is khan

      hahahaha confuse ho gaya main to…….

  14. Akshay’s best is without no doubt JANWAAR! Eraa pheri performance has been seen over and over e.g Phir eraa pheri Bhagam bhag etel but Janwaar is something he is yet to repeat may it works bkoz he lost his father in the same period

  15. Aamir – PK
    Srk – Chak de india
    Salman – tere naam
    Ajay – deewapan
    Shahid- haider
    Akhsay- airlift
    Hrithik – koi mil gaya
    Saif -omkar

  16. Akshay-Airlift,Baby,Rustom.Srk-Chak de INDIA,Swades, Chennai Express.Salman-Bajrangi bhaijan,Kick,Sultan.Hrithik-Jodha Akbar,Dhoom2, Mohenjodaro.Ajay-Shivaay,Drisyam,Once upon a time in Mumbai.Aamir-Dangal,PK,3 idiots.

  17. SRK’s Top performances: Swades, Chak De India, My Name is Khan, Darr, Bazigar
    all these SRK’s performances are equally good. can’t decide which one is better.
    whereas Salman’s Top performances: Tere Naam, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Dabangg, Sultan, cameo in KKHH.
    but I am waiting for TUBELIGHT to watch the best performance of Salman and the charismatic cameo of SRK.

  18. Srk -veer zaara
    Sallu -tera naam
    Aamir -lagaan
    Irfan -pan sing
    Actually for aamir it’s really hard to pick one,,, rdb,,3I,,pk,fanaa!

  19. How can everyone forgetting SRK in devdas. the epic acting with superb dialogues. For SRK you cant decide his career best. He is way ahead of rest of stars in terms of acting and stardom. In recent times amir and salman have gone ahead of srk in terms of box office as they are having a good time. But same as SRK’s dialogue din admiyon ke achhe hote hain sheron ka zamana hota he. He is superstar of this era.

  20. SRk Lots of them can’t be precise honestly

    Salman , There naam BB Sultan

    Aamir Lots of them can’t be precise

    Ajay , Lots of them can’t be precise

    Akshay Jaanwar Airlift Khakee(supporting)

    Hrithik ZNMD Guzaarish

    The rest are not superstars they still have lots of time to try diverse characters its unfair joining them with the above but for just saying sake

    Varun Badlapur
    Ranbir Barfi
    Ranveer BBB BM
    Eemran Ouatim (though supporting)
    Sushant Ms Dhoni
    Arjun Ishaaqzaade
    Saif Omkara (though supporting) Hum tum

    Special Mention

    Jackie, Parinda Hero
    Anil, Meri Jung Lamhe
    Govinda Hatya Coolie no 1
    Suniel Shetty Mohra

    Must Say Superstar Akshay too was brilliant in Movies like MSK Insaan and Janemaan even though he played 2nd lead to Salman and Ajay Same goes to Saif , KHNK and Omkara though 2nd lead to Srk and Ajay.

  21. I would add:

    Abhishek Bachan- Guru
    Sanjay Dutt- Vaastav
    Govinda- Coolie No. 1
    Sunny Deol- Ghatak

    For the ones already in the list:
    SRK- Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
    Saif- Hum Tum
    Hrithik- Koyi Mil Gaya
    Devgan- Zakhm

  22. Brilliant article !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Best performances of Actors in my opinion (I have included only those films which I have seen completely) :
    Hrithik – KMG/Guzaarish
    Ajay – The Legend Of Bhagat Singh
    Aamir – Lagaan/Sarfarosh
    Akshay – Baby
    SRK – CDI/Darr
    Salman – Dabangg/Tere Naam
    Shahid – Haider
    Ranbir – Barfi !
    Ranveer – BM
    Sid – Ek Villain
    Emraan – OUATIM
    Saif – Omkara
    John – Madras Cafe
    Farhan – BMB

  23. hahaha….
