Top 10 Malayalam Actors of 21st Century

List of greatest Malayalam cinema actors in 21st century.
The Top Ten
1 Mammootty Mammootty is an Indian film actor and producer best known for his work in the Malayalam film industry .

Face of Indian Cinema. Megastar Mammootty.

He is the most versatile actor ever produced in the world, having acted in around 400 films and played 700 characters in his 48-year film experience. All-time legend.

When Mohanlal acts in a movie, we see Mohanlal himself. But when Mammootty acts in a movie, we forget Mammootty, and the character he plays lights up our minds.

He is truly the best actor in Malayalam, and it's only Megastar.

He is the best actor. He showed us that flexibility is not just the capacity to dance or do comedy. It is the ability to transform into anyone.

2 Mohanlal Mohanlal Viswanathan Nair, better known as Mohanlal, is an Indian actor, producer and occasional singer best known for his work in Malayalam films .

I hail from Andhra and lived in North India for more than four years. I am a movie freak who has watched a lot of Tollywood, Bollywood, Hollywood, Japanese, Korean, Tamil, Bengali, and Malayalam movies.

I would say that Mohanlal is the best actor I've seen to date. He is a very typical actor. His dialogue delivery and expressions are peculiar and outstanding. His body language mesmerizes me a lot. He leaves an impression on people.

For a better understanding of Malayalam cinema and culture, I am learning Malayalam. I've watched nearly 100 Malayalam movies to date. Super actor, nammada Lalettan!

3 Dileep

He has starred in more than 100 Malayalam films, best known for his comic performances.

King of a variety of roles. Freaky actor.

Dileep is the best. Mammootty and Mohanlal, it's time to retire from cinema, oldies.

4 Prithviraj Sukumaran

The most promising youth icon of the Malayalam industry who has the talent, charm, dedication, and maturity to rule over Mollywood in the coming years.

He's not just multitalented but never fails to be the best in whatever he does.

The finest talent in the Kerala film industry after Mohanlal and Mammootty.

Extremely handsome and dynamic.

Making waves in Bollywood too.

After the Big Ms, he is the best actor, with great talent and a versatile look as a mainstream film star. He has reached Bollywood, Kollywood, and Tollywood as well.

5 Suresh Gopi

Everyone thinks that he is a jealous man, but he has a terrible story behind his life, and he is very kind-hearted.

In my opinion, Suresh Gopi ranks third in Malayalam. He is the action king in India.

6 Jayaram
7 Kunchacko Boban

I like Kunchacko Boban's performance. He is a good, handsome gentleman. I think he is good in cute, pretty romantic cinemas.

May God bless him. From Greshma Clement.

He is an innocent evergreen hero.

8 Jayasurya

One of the best actors in Malayalam. Clearly a true-born talent who gives full effort to all the roles he is given.

He has done the most versatile roles in such an awesome way. No one else can compare.

Jayasurya can do multifaceted roles with utmost ease. He has a good fan following. He is the most established among young stars in terms of star value and talent.

I love this actor because he can do all types of characters. He always makes his side perfect.

9 Dulquar Salman

Upcoming superstar. Really awesome and very cute. He has his own style of acting.

Finally, a really good-looking actor from Mollywood! He is a big talent and is adorable!

Good actor and very unassuming. Natural actor like his father.

10 Nivin Pauly

Good looks and good acting skills are a rare combination in actors across India. Very few, like Mammootty and Prithviraj, have both, and now Nivin joins the league.

He is a show stealer and definitely a very promising superstar.

Undoubtedly, he is the most successful actor of all the new-gen actors. Look at where his selections have led him!

Bangalore Days, Oru Vadakkan Selfie, Premam - he is the box-office king, as of most recently, as well as Dileep.

One of the best actors. I'm trying to watch all his movies. Eagerly waiting for the new ones.

The Contenders
11 Asif Ali
12 Allu Arjun Allu Arjun is an Indian film actor who primarily works in Telugu cinema. After playing as a child artist in Vijetha and as a dancer in Daddy, Arjun made his adult debut in Gangotri. Arjun then appeared in Sukumar's debut film Arya.

He is a good actor, a good dancer, and a good fighter. He is number one.

13 Santhosh Pandit

Why is he 14th on the list? He is in the top 3, surely.

14 Fahadh Faasil

Fahadh Faasil is the best among all the young actors in Mollywood. He is going to lead the Malayalam film industry in the future. There is no other actor who can compete with his natural style of acting. He is definitely a versatile actor.

He is a born actor who can portray typical Keralites on screen, which most young actors can't. Maheshinte Prathikaaram, Varathan, and Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum are just three among his best performances.

We can see Mammootty in Fahadh. He can transform into anyone.
