Top 10 Overrated Indian Actors

This is a list of overrated (and/or popular) actors. This list tries to distinguish stars from actors. An actor is one who could act naturally. A star is someone who has great number of followers irrespective of his/her quality and style of acting.

The Top Ten

1 Salman Khan Salman Khan

Dude should thank his dialogue writers for saving his career...

Criminal and unlucky because aishwarya reject him

If you say srk is overrated, then you r wrong... The most overrated actor in Bollywood's history is salman... He can't act, claims to have six packs even though he does not

He is the most over-rated actor ever.

2 Sonam Kapoor Sonam Kapoor

I agree Salman Khan is the most overrated actor, he sucks! Sonam is a little bad actor but I think Madhuri Dixit should be number 2. She is extremely bad and overrated. She just looks really ugly and irritating, her smile is like a monster and she is an ugly fat actress. There is a place for mannequins, and silver screen isn't it, so Madhuri should rather become a model. She over acts and just is unnatural actress, yeah her acting is not timeless and anyone heard that screeching fragile voice and saw that stone faced acting? And people say she is a great dancer?! My foot! She just dances too ordinary, and instead of performing smooth, balanced and expressive steps, she just performs some fast and untidy steps. And Shraddha Kapoor is worse than Madhuri Dixit. She looks ugly and frail like a dead body, just does nonsense and the worst acting and dancing? Meh, the adolescent dance!

Only She should stick to modelling

Adolescent girl acting

3 Aamir Khan Aamir Khan

He should not be on the list because he is a very good actor

As an actor he chooses good projects, but that does not necessarily make him an extraordinary actor.

Aamir is a very good actor and he should not be in thus list

Too overrated as an actor

4 Kathrina Kaif

She is stone-faced, and absolutely CANNOT act. And moreover, she has the God-knows-what airs of being a celebrity, and acts as if she's the most amazing actor of Bollywood. Girl, you seem to be forgetting the fans who made you, and are being overtly rude to them. Even her dance moves are not so smooth.

Confirms that our taste has not improved even after being exposed to some brilliant cinema (thanks to the internet and DTH) during the last two decades...

Its time for her and Sonia Gandhi to learn the language, culture and heritage of the country that made them stinking rich.

Unbelievable that Amir Khan is on this list and above her.

5 Shah Rukh Khan Shah Rukh Khan

He used to be a decent actor but nowadays I feel like he overacts too much and chooses his films based in which brings mire money... I used to be a big fan of his (because his films are the only ones that are shown in my country) but after watching other movies with other actors I feel like srk doesn't deserve all this biased special treatment when there are other (even more) talented actors than him

A very popular actor among Hindi speaking Indian community... Known among serious and objective critics of acting as God of ham acting... 'he does not act... He over reacts'...

I use to be a huge fan of him back when he did decent films but nowadays he seems to be doing younger roles with actresses who are half his seems so awkward to watch a highly admired actor destroy his career for money

The most overrated actor! Just can't act

Please stop torturing us with you acting "skills"

Is he even an actor

8 Bipasha Basu Bipasha Basu Bipasha Basu, also known by her married name Bipasha Basu Singh Grover, is an Indian film actress and model.

Kitty Softpaws stay out of acting please... Please... You have to "make faces" to be called an actor or can opt for modelling where you can grit your teeth and nobody complains.

In India, fashion models are so wrongly mixed up with movie actors - she is one example.

Nothing 2 show.. No talent! No Looks!

I would love to grope her and have sex with her naked in front of an open fireplace.

9 Hrithik Roshan Hrithik Roshan

Not sure of his potential - acting or dancing? If dancing, then please go to the discotheque.

He keeps a straight face in even the most emotional scenes, definitely meant for dancing and looking good, no good for acting.

He gives same expression in every scene

Too plastic, wooden expressions.
Only has 2 expressions. nice smiling boy face and angry nostrils puffed face.
Poor dialogue delivery.
Cannot do comedy at all.
Cannot act with body.

Most over rated doing films in his age he should be at home or maybe he is thinking that its still 1970s

This guy is fool. He will sell you his soul for an award. Shameless fellow.

Amitabhji, stop it. Do not ruin your fame that has gone so well into the history of bollywood film.

At his age he should be in his house watching his grand sons but he is ion screen acting and saying buddha hoga tera baap imagine he turely is Overrated actor his time was in 1970's now he should rest for good

The Contenders

12 Aiswarya Rai

There's a place for mannequins... And the silver scree is not exactly that place...

In which she acts. Not beautiful as much as media make

Acting is secondary but still she became one of the top actresses. Incredible bollywood indeed.

13 Ranbir Kapoor

Indian people say this guy can play every character. He is so natural. Seriously. when he acts it seems he's trying to act, trying to be natural which shows. Well that's obvious, How much can you expect from a celebrity kid?

Easily the best actor of his generation, on screen charisma. Barfi was excellent, attitude driven roles also suit him.

A idiot who became actor.

14 Vikram Vikram Vikram is an Indian film actor who predominantly appears in Tamil language films and has won six Filmfare Awards as well as one National Film Award and Tamil Nadu State Film Award amongst other recognitions and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the People's University of Milan in May 2011.

One of the South Indian actors who should stop playing people with deformities (or shall we say differently-abled characters)... That's not considered acting anymore than 37 inch bell-bottom trousers as new-age fashion..

Highly overrated actor. All he can do is changing looks, some body make over and some over the top characters. He can't portray real life emotions, to cover that weakness he don't do such films. Worst thing is that for his each film unnecessary hype is created which is irritating.And to me Vijay sethupathy and dhanush aresomuch underrated actors in Tamil

R you an idiot vikram is a great actor.

15 Shahid Kapoor
16 Kajol

The most overrated actress I have seen yet.

She so asowme in dilwale

She has done big banner movies and is considered a great actress due to that.. Other actresses would die to do a movie like DDLJ or KKHH who are more talented than her but they lack big banners

So much overrated by the Indian media. Bollywood has given her a recognition which she does not even deserve and she is an actress who never even tended to play roles in off beat or independent flms. Her contemporaries such as Juhi, Manisha, Karisma, Raveena have taken risks and proved to be real actresses as well but Kajol still does what she did when she was 20, by playing light hearted roles.

17 Ranveer Singh

He is really can't act! And please don't even try to be funny! And don't shave your face! Your mustash and bear is your make up

18 Kareena Kapoor Khan Kareena Kapoor Khan

Just get over your size zero doesn't look pleasing on screen n make u look like a sack of bones

She's a Bollywood whore with a transvestite face, who constantly appears in almost every film. She's lucky she has family connections in the Bollywood Industry.

19 Varun Dhawan

Acting is NOT abs show, modeling career suites you better.

He is the best

He can't act
