An Actor known for his discipline, straight forward, trust towards his fans, with a huge mass of fans hub in south india and Tamil Nadu.

Kamal hassan is oolaga naayagan! He has been praised by Amithab bhachan, rajinikanth, jackie chan.. Now recently by lord of d rings director... He deserves a OSCAR... Even more than that... An only actor who earned money in industry & spent it for industry! Salute

I never seen any actor in India like kamal hasan. In fact he is the real superstar in India even though few of his film not success. Who is only growing the Tamil film industry...

In performance Kamal, Mohanlal, Vikram, Mammutty, Surya, etc. ,
In stardom Rajni, Chiranjeevi, Magesh Babu, Ajith, Vijay, Pawan, etc. ,

Let us not list the legends like MGR, NTR, Rajkumar, Shivaji, etc. ,

8 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

The highest paid hero in india in 1990's, when he took 1.5 crore for a film at that time. and also highest tax payer in india at that time. Came on National Magazine front page as "Bigger Than Bachan".


The Great actor Mega star Chiranjeevi is the one who can perform dance, seriousness, comedy, fights, style which any other superstar from south india cannot do all with their acting. Even Rajinikanth the superstar of south lacks in dance and comedy when compared to chiranjeevi.

Ruled Telugu Industry for over 30 years as the number 1 star. with his appearance which any other star from south india cannot do that.


After 9 years from quitting movies, No other superstar had got a same welcome back like chiranjeevi had got. He proved that he is still the maga star of Cinema with kaidhi No 150 by breaking all non-bahubali records in telugu industry even with a remake film.

What an amazing actor! He is very flexible and can play any role easily! He is a master of comedy and I love every single one of his films. He and other actors like Mohanlal and Mammootty are the only ones who don't have to be handsome to make good films! Even the new-gen actors of Malayalam movie industry are starting to get into style for publicity. Dileep has truly achieved this stardom and I would like to see him in the top ten. He is my favorite actor in the whole world and always makes me laugh.
