Top 10 Overrated Indian Actors

This is a list of overrated (and/or popular) actors. This list tries to distinguish stars from actors. An actor is one who could act naturally. A star is someone who has great number of followers irrespective of his/her quality and style of acting.

The Top TenXW

1Salman Khan

Dude should thank his dialogue writers for saving his career...

If you say srk is overrated, then you r wrong... The most overrated actor in Bollywood's history is salman... He can't act, claims to have six packs even though he does not

Criminal and unlucky because aishwarya reject him

The guy we all love to hate

3Aamir Khan

He should not be on the list because he is a very good actor

As an actor he chooses good projects, but that does not necessarily make him an extraordinary actor.

Aamir is a very good actor and he should not be in thus list

Average actor. Just making good themed movies doesn't make him best actor.

4Kathrina Kaif

She is stone-faced, and absolutely CANNOT act. And moreover, she has the God-knows-what airs of being a celebrity, and acts as if she's the most amazing actor of Bollywood. Girl, you seem to be forgetting the fans who made you, and are being overtly rude to them. Even her dance moves are not so smooth.

Confirms that our taste has not improved even after being exposed to some brilliant cinema (thanks to the internet and DTH) during the last two decades...

Its time for her and Sonia Gandhi to learn the language, culture and heritage of the country that made them stinking rich.

I think She should be at the top of this list

5Shah Rukh Khan

He used to be a decent actor but nowadays I feel like he overacts too much and chooses his films based in which brings mire money... I used to be a big fan of his (because his films are the only ones that are shown in my country) but after watching other movies with other actors I feel like srk doesn't deserve all this biased special treatment when there are other (even more) talented actors than him

A very popular actor among Hindi speaking Indian community... Known among serious and objective critics of acting as God of ham acting... 'he does not act... He over reacts'...

I use to be a huge fan of him back when he did decent films but nowadays he seems to be doing younger roles with actresses who are half his seems so awkward to watch a highly admired actor destroy his career for money

Shah Rukh Khan is the best...World's best and biggest actor who has the biggest fan following in the world

6Himesh Reshammiya

Do not try to act... Stick to making loud repetitive music called "popular chart-busters"

Why are guys like this born man... ? And there are still stupid people who support such frauds who don't know about music and acting..

Please stop torturing us with you acting "skills"

Is he even an actor

7Alia Bhatt

How come she is in acting - family ties?

Her acting is horrible and she is ugly

Poor dialogue delivery and typical roles. Bad face and clich├ęd acting.

8Bipasha Basu

Kitty Softpaws stay out of acting please... Please... You have to "make faces" to be called an actor or can opt for modelling where you can grit your teeth and nobody complains.

In India, fashion models are so wrongly mixed up with movie actors - she is one example.

She just eye-candy and self-absorbed. She's lucky she's hot, otherwise she wouldn't be in Bollywood with her mediocre acting.

Nothing 2 show.. No talent! No Looks!

9Amitabh BachchanAmitabh Harivansh Bachchan is an Indian film actor. He first gained popularity in the early 1970s for movies like Zanjeer and Deewar, and was dubbed India's first "angry young man" for his on-screen roles in Bollywood.

Most over rated doing films in his age he should be at home or maybe he is thinking that its still 1970s

This guy is fool. He will sell you his soul for an award. Shameless fellow.

Amitabhji, stop it. Do not ruin your fame that has gone so well into the history of bollywood film.

10Hrithik Roshan

He keeps a straight face in even the most emotional scenes, definitely meant for dancing and looking good, no good for acting.

Not sure of his potential - acting or dancing? If dancing, then please go to the discotheque.

He gives same expression in every scene

The Contenders

11Aiswarya Rai

There's a place for mannequins... And the silver scree is not exactly that place...

In which she acts. Not beautiful as much as media make

Acting is secondary but still she became one of the top actresses. Incredible bollywood indeed.

12Akshay KumarRajiv Hari Om Bhatia, better known by his stage name 'Akshay Kumar', is a Canadian actor, producer and martial artist who has appeared in over a hundred Hindi films.

Huh! He can own you in a fight in less than a second

Best actress best indian super hero

He's like the new Shah Rukh Khan...appearing in any and every film possible, acting with women who are half his age. So weird to watch. I feel sorry for people back in India

Stop calling stuntmen actors

Tops my list of overrated actors! We seem to have run out of options... Seriously!

13Ranbir Kapoor

Indian people say this guy can play every character. He is so natural. Seriously. when he acts it seems he's trying to act, trying to be natural which shows. Well that's obvious, How much can you expect from a celebrity kid?

Easily the best actor of his generation, on screen charisma. Barfi was excellent, attitude driven roles also suit him.

14VikramVikram is an Indian film actor who predominantly appears in Tamil language films and has won six Filmfare Awards as well as one National Film Award and Tamil Nadu State Film Award amongst other recognitions and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the People's University of Milan in May 2011.

One of the South Indian actors who should stop playing people with deformities (or shall we say differently-abled characters)... That's not considered acting anymore than 37 inch bell-bottom trousers as new-age fashion..

15Ranveer Singh

He is really can't act! And please don't even try to be funny! And don't shave your face! Your mustash and bear is your make up

16Fardeen Khan

Have anyone seen him off late... Well that explains.


The most overrated actress I have seen yet.

She has done big banner movies and is considered a great actress due to that.. Other actresses would die to do a movie like DDLJ or KKHH who are more talented than her but they lack big banners

So much overrated by the Indian media. Bollywood has given her a recognition which she does not even deserve and she is an actress who never even tended to play roles in off beat or independent flms. Her contemporaries such as Juhi, Manisha, Karisma, Raveena have taken risks and proved to be real actresses as well but Kajol still does what she did when she was 20, by playing light hearted roles.

Screaming is not acting... Anger is just one of the emotions you should be able to portray as an actor
