9 Chiranjeevi Chiranjeevi

He is one of the greatest actors the county has ever seen. He can play any role with ease. With his dances he can simply mesmerize audience. When chiru dances none looks at the lady dancer and the total concentration will be on chiru and chiru alone. Such an impact he created on audience. People would throng theatres to watch chiranjeevi in action let whatever the movie it be, a success or failure. Without an iota of doubt chiru is the top ranked actor from south.

Chiranjeevi is the best from south India. None comes close to him. He is the one adorned by both class and mass. With his dances he can make audience spellbound.

He was a great actor has frendly with everyone like super star rajani, amathab, kamal, etc he has bult blood bank etc

He is the all time great actor. No one can reach him. He has to be in first position along with rajini and kamal

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

Of late people started calling him "The Face of Indian Cinema". The much acclaimed megastar of mollywood is the only person in India if not the world who can rightly hold on to this tag. Apart from the the innumerous awards he has bagged, he has adorned almost all the faces in various strata of a Keralite (Native to the state of Kerala, from where he hails) and has stretched further into Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, English and Hindi movies. He has spoken around 19 different dialects of Malayalam covering the entire state of Kerala, the Indo-Britain English and other foreign languages not with ease, yes, but with effort drawn out of passion. He has leveraged himself to the most to bring out the best in him. With much pride, I can proclaim and vouch for Mammooty as the best actor in India and the best method actor in all over the world.

EMPEROR OF INDIAN CINEMA
SULTAN OF ACTING
NO one in the world can compare with this Legendary Kingdom
Who the stupid put him no: 14 He have to be there in 1st

Face of Indian Cinema...
