Bollywood is the industry that has given us a huge number of stars over the years. Every decade was ruled by few number of actors who delivered hits after hits and impressed the fans and critics with powerful performances.
Since the 90s, the generation of superstars that have taken the Indian cinema global consists of the Khan triumvirate. Shah Rukh, Salman, and Aamir Khan have a fan following in hundreds of millions and are global superstars.
Then Hrithik Roshan joined the list of superstars with performances in films like Krrish, Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai, Koi Mil Gaya, Bang Bang etc that also became record worldwide earners.
The younger generation actors have a lot of work to do if they wish to attain the superstardom like these legends. Here are 5 actors from the younger generation who have similarities to these top 5 Bollywood actors:
Varun Dhawan-Salman Khan: Varun has all that it takes to become a universally popular actor like Salman Khan. He has his own style, swagger and also possesses great acting skills that make him the immediate successor to Salman. He even delivered a successful remake of Salman’s film this year.
Ranveer Singh-Aamir Khan: Now, this is not in comparison with the box-office collection as Aamir Khan is in a different universe altogether. We are talking about the conviction with which Ranveer plays his roles. He goes deep lengths to ace his characters, be it cutting himself off from the rest of the world or staying in character throughout the shoot, the audiences have seen it all and loved his performances.
Tiger Shroff-Hrithik Roshan: . Blessed with good looks and working hard to look like Greek Gods is in both men’s genes. Both are good dancers and just like Hrithik, Tiger Shroff has shown that he loves doing action films.
Ayushmann Khurrana-Akshay Kumar: Akshay Kumar is the most successful Bollywood actor of the last 5 years with his films earning more than 1800 Crores domestically.
Just like a Pokemon, he has evolved from being an action star to a comedy actor and now the actor who is mainstreaming content. Ayushmann is taking risks from his first film itself and is the go-to actor for portraying challenging roles that other actors would not be able to ace and he’s also getting success from these films.
Rajkummar Rao-Shah Rukh Khan: One of the best younger generation actors who also is the winner of a National Award, Rajkummar is slowly establishing himself as an actor who can ace all the roles. Be it the challenging roles in films like Trapped, Newton or Shahid or lighthearted romantic comedies like Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana or Bareilly Ki Barfi, he has aced all the roles and has shown his range as an actor, just like SRK did at the start of his career.
