1. Amir Khan- The pillar of Bollywood industry, Amir Khan has established himself as one of the most popular and influential actors of Indian Cinema. When Amir Khan’s film releases, it makes a new record at the box office. Ghajini led to the launch of 100 cr club, 3 Idiots was the first to make an entry to the 200 cr mark and with PK set a new record of 300 cr. But it was with the release of Dangal that touched a new milestone, both in the box office collection as well as in his career.

6. Ranbir Kapoor– The actor with huge potential but killed by luck, Ranbir Kapoor is one of the talented actors of the young generation. Though his films are unable to gather attention from the audience, yet particularly his performance remains beyond commendable.
