Top 10 Best Tamil Actors


The Top Ten

1 Joseph Vijay

Vijay is the mass! He went through a struggle.. But o well - every actor goes through it at once point in their careers as a actor ( ex. Ajith, vikram, and surya ). Velyudum is going to be a hit, nanban BLOCKBUSTER, and vijay film with goutham menon is going to be MASS

Vijay is the good dancer, good friend for all, so I like a vijay, thanks for a god to gave a beautiful actor and brother to tamil industry

Vijay " The one and only result oriented hero" he is the mass hero in the tamil film industry next to our ever super star Thalaivar Rajnikanth...

Vijay is mass + class actor who can pull any kind of crowd towards him.. He has finest quality of expressions that rise rite from his eyes... He literally pulls your attention even when there are many on the screen. In tamilnadu, he is top most because he acts in movies of day to day life that are understood even by a laymen as well enjoyed by a well educated businessman... That is his power, pulls attention of all from 5 yr old to 50 yr old. Total getup changes and so called character differentiation is not his belief and that's not something which his fans expect.. He has great qualities as a human too. Few of his films flopped back to back during 2008-10, and many in the name of criticism tried to pull down vijay, maybe the just vanished all there thoughts about his past films and the amount of entertainment vijay has rendered to the people rite from 1995(poove unakaga film.. His first super hit)but that does not me he is no more a good actor.. Now he is back in full form and his ...more

In addition to his acting, Ajith Kumar in a sabbatical, participated in the 2004 British Formula 3 season as a Formula Two racing driver and was ranked more.

Ajith will win this Thala ajith rocks

A man without any publicity or show-off like other hero's next to Rajnikanth..! Came to the industry without anybody's help..!


A real life hero. A man of discipline. Role model for most of the young blood. One of the finest performer on screen. A man with loads of will power. Never say "no" hearted human. Known for his huge openings. A humble soul. Knows to respect other human irrespective of their social status. A simple common man. Out spoken. Multi talented. Only Indian actor to hold a pilot license. A great cook. F3 racer. An aero modeller. A professional photographer. A man loved by everyone on sets. A man with zero ego and attitude. A successful hero with no backup from family members. A mechanic to start with. A man who does loads of help with no publicity. One of the best looking Asian actor on Blazers. Only actor to look good with grey hair. Actor who got other actors as fans after Rajni. The only actor to dissolve the fan club and yet to lose a single fan of his. Never lost his fans till date even during the worst period. We love you a lot for the way you are Thala. Proud to be your Fan. ...more

3 Rajinikanth Rajinikanth Rajinikanth (born 12 December 1950) is an Indian film actor who works primarily in Tamil cinema and is considered as Super Star of Kollywood after M. G. Ramachandran. After earning ₹26 crore (equivalent to ₹55 crore or US$8.2 million in 2016) for his role in Sivaji (2007), he was the highest paid more.

Padayappa, Chandramugi, Sivaji, Enthiran these are record break block buster movies! Who can break it except Superstar RAJNI...?

No one can beat him. He always rocks. Good actor also. So my choice is rajini.

Rajinikant always the best, there are nobody who can replace rajinikant. Rajini is the fist not vijay.

Rajinikanth deserves to be on the top... The tremendous practice and hardwork he had done in his early days of his career may not be known to everyone.. One can definitely say that the amount of talent present in him is more than the sum of the talents present in all the actors like kamal, vijay, surya, etc.. One can feel this by watching his earlier movies where his acting is definitely on par with giant actors like sivaji, kamal, etc... He has done many serious roles in his earlier movies like mullum malarum, 6-60, etc.. When we watch all of his movies, we will see that the styles of the present day actors like vijay, ajith, surya has its domain in rajini! Above all, in spite of all his fame and stardom which is now in world level, his simplicity and humbleness makes him great for ever... The way he balances his spirituality and his stardom must be contemplated before comparing him with actors like vijay, ajith, etc.. Finally, I would say that rajinikanth is definitely an ...more

4 Surya Sivakumar

He is really hard working person & He looks like hero I would say...
He is having good face to accommodate all the character...
He is having good enough attitude to listen seniors...
For sure he will become good hero in south India...

He's one of the precious gem that can be found. Surya is a really versatile and handsome actor... Why still not yet give him a title... I would suggest six pack nayagan

Hard working person and choosing the best movie that suits him and entertain the viewers

My rock star surya he was the the only actor who can perform well in all

I was the most well known fan of surya I likes his agaram foundation which is the best I like I wish my actor surya to do more and more movies. And there is lots and lots to say about my surya

He is best actor in tamil film industry. No replace for this actor. Very hard worker creative new making of acting in current film industry. Then very reality acting action movie any one character is acting very beauty...


He is probably the most versatile among the lot in point of performance. He is potentially the future national award winner.

He is a really a mass hero in Tamil industry. His dedication and hard work proves that he is the best of all actors. Different thinkings, different characters in each films will set him in a high position and acquires the role model of all new actors. I agreed the following points "He is really a versatile among the lot in point of performance"

8 Sivaji Ganesan Sivaji Ganesan

Of course Sivaji is an actor par excellence. It is actually an honour only for all awards to reach him than for him to acquire awards. He is the first Indian to have acquired the an International Award in the movie "Veera Pandia Kattabomman" and probably the first to have been praised as far better by Marlon Brando, 3 time Oscar Award winner, himself in the United States. He confessed Sivaji can act like him but not him like Sivaji. That's the greatest accolade for India for having given birth to an extraordinary son with unmatched exceptional quality of acting talent.

Probably the best actor of india and has the privilege of being the first indian to win an international award for acting

One only best actor in Tamil cinema sivaji ganesan

Acting= Shivaji Ganesan in One Word...

24 Bharath Bharath

He is talented but he doesn't get supports from other. He will soon get a best place in south Indian cinema

He is a very good actor, but the only reason he is not as famous as the other actors because he does not have any connections in Tamil cinema

No this answer is wrong, he has all the connection, but he got greedy which most actors mistake and it will just disappear in the shadow. - msanthuru


Bharath is one of the most talented actor in South Indian cinema. better than so called famous actors.
