2 Rajnikanth

Rajini the number 1 in Indian cinema man of style and the very good character artist no one can beat him, and he s the versatile actor... "EMPEROR OF INDIAN CINEMA"
"ONE MAN ARMY OF INDIAN CINEMA"

Rajinikanth sir is the GOD OF INDIAN CINEMA! AVARODA VAZHI THANI VAZHI, YARALAIYUM THADUKAMUDIYADHU. He has worked so hard in his life to get to where is today, and yet he is the most humble and the epitome of humility.

NO ONE IN THIS WORLD CAN REPLACE HIM, ANOTHER MAN HAS TO BE BORN TO EVEN BE COMPARED TO THE SUPERSTAR OF OUR HEARTS!

He is Always No1 In Indian Cinema and best entertainer of Indian cinema... The one and only super star of India our super star Rajini...

Greatest actor ever

3 Mammootty Mammootty Mammootty is an Indian film actor and producer best known for his work in the Malayalam film industry .

The man who won the 3 national award & proved his caliber in both art films and commercial films comes in rank 12 is so hurting. When mammootty appears on the screen one can feel the character over there but not mammooty! The person who watched the films like oru vadakkan veeragadha, yathra, ponthanmada, mathilukal, vidheyan, mrigaya, amaram, sooryamanadam, dani, cbi series, valsalyam, pranjiyettan, palerimanikyam, big b, ore kadal, karutha pakshikal, bhoothakannadi, new delhi, thaniyavarthanam, adi ozukkukal, dr ambedkar, dhalapathi, pazhassiraja, rajamanikyam, adharvam, padheyam, etc.. He just transforms to the charecter not as the same mammootty.. But for mohanlal one can feel that mohanlal is on the screen but not the character.. He is just poor in doing historical character, cbi type character, fisherman, tough police type of roles, Muslim characters, his way of dialogue delivery is almost same in most of the films but mammootty is just fabulous.. Still adoor gopalakrishnan ...more

Mammootty should place at number 1
You must see the great roles acted by him. Mohanlal and srk are far away from him. Most versatile actor in world cinema is mammootty. One can not compare mammootty with kamal or rajni or big b or lal because they are of different acting skill. The voted people must watch movies like oru vadakkan
Veeragadha, pothanmaada, ambedkar, mathilukal, vidheyan. I AM challenging that anyone in the planet act just like that. I am a big mammootty fan. MAMMOOTTY has a huge fan base in south india. HIS fans hasn't watched this except me.
IF they will see this surely mammookka comes no1. Ithokke manassilavanamenkil sensundavanam, sensibility undavanam, sensuality undavanam...

No one can be compared with Mr. Mammootty.
He is the best actor...

5 Amitabh Bachchan Amitabh Bachchan Amitabh 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.

No body can come near to him.. He is the best and others just want to copy him... He is the living legend still going on.. Experimenting and entertaining.

DAMN why he is on 5? He should be 1 or 2 after King Khan. Are you kidding Vijay, Hrithik Roshan, Mohanlal are better then Bachan. He is not only the best actor of Bollywood, he is the LEGEND of India.

Absolutely agree with Vijay and Hrithik, but do you even have the slightest of ideas who Mohanlal is? - gaali121

Legend and he has extra gft in him that seperates from rest. Charima to the way of approach to charecter is marvellous

Love you...amitqbh

12 Akshay Kumar Akshay Kumar Rajiv 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.

Akshay Kumar is the best actor in Bollywood along with srk. He gives his best all the time. He can do any type of movie. He captures the moment. He is even a chef how good can one be. He is so awesome! We love you!

Akshay is one of top actors. He can deliver any kind of action (Action, Comedy, Drama, Sad etc... And is much better than all Khans (Sharuk, Aamir ) who are having one or two modes of of acting skills. But unfortunately he lacks the Luck..
Hrithik, Arjun rampal, Ajay devgan, Sunjay dutt, Abhisake are also very good actors..
But why bollywood industry always praises the Khans and their movies, even though their movies are not good and their's worst action (salman, saif etc)... Why the double standards... Think a while

For me Akshay kumar is best actor in the world

Biggest hitter of 2017 and 2018
