Filled with thrills, intrigue and pathos, these actors brought to the fore-front some of the most amazing characters in 2017.
For many reasons, 2017 was an important year for actors who stood out for delivering some of the most exciting roles of the year. None of these roles were easy, and therefore, these actors stand high in the list of accomplished actors who made it to our list.
The Telugu actor, Prabhas, is best known for his stunning performance in SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali franchise. He made his presence felt across India with his performance in Baahubali: The Conclusion, in 2017. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that he kept the flag of Mahishmati flying high in the box office for days at end!
From Trapped through Raabta, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Behen Hogi Teri, Shadi Mein Zaroor Aana to Oscar-nominated Newton, Rajkumar Rao convincingly finished 2017 with power packed performances and versatile roles. This 32-year-old actor’s astute choices have landed him right in the top-list of Bollywood actors to look out for in the coming years!
At 50, and only getting better, Irrfan Khan continues to lure his audience with his “natural” performances and the best of which can be witnessed in two of the most delectable films of the year: Hindi Medium and Qarib Qarib Singlle.
With Jolly LLB 2 and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Akshay Kumar seems to be moving towards content driven cinema and is winning all our love by doing so! The benchmark is already set high for the actor’s upcoming film, PadMan, where he will play the character of a man who invented a low-cost device to make sanitary napkins for rural women.
The actor-singer, who shines best as a small town guy in Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Savdhan, has won our hearts with his low budget hits and lovable boy-next-door personality.
It is a well known fact that Bollywood’s “sallu bhai” need not try hard to make his movie a Blockbuster hit. His sheer presence is enough to push each movie towards the Rs 200 crore bracket. His two movies, Tubelight and Tiger Zinda Hai were no different. His massive fanbase was in awe of his performance and he continues to be in our top-list, this year.
Shah Rukh Khan
Nothing could go wrong for the “raees” of Bollywood cinema. Playing Raees Alam in the film Raees, Shah Rukh Khan continues to be the King Khan of Bollywood and rightly so. Although Harry Met Sejal failed to make it big in the film world this year, it is impossible to complete the list without a mention of Baadshah.
