We are now going into the colorful, musical world of Bollywood and we are jumping in with a bang!
Are you ready for this eye-candy ladies?
20 – Arbaaz Khan
This 46 year old Indian film producer, director and actor was born in Maharashtra on 4th August, 1967. With a family background in in the Bollywood industry, there is no wonder that this refined and established Bollywood actor turned to the silver screen himself. His father is the brilliant Screenwriter Salim Khan. He has one brother, Salman Khan, who is also an actor, and there is one more brother in there that followed the same career path – producer and actor, Sohail Khan. It would appear that taken runs in the family!
He hasn’t had the easiest of lives and even though the Daraar (1996) actor went through the drama of being sued for compensation by the family of a girl that was killed by his car. It must be stated on the record that he wasn’t driving the car at the time of the incident, and the family refused compensation as the girl that had been sadly killed in the accident had been disowned by her parents before it took place!
He has been pretty quiet recently but when you look at the pretty impressive list of awards he has won along the way, he’s achieved so much that he can afford to take some time out. With a number of Stardust Awards, Filmfare Awards, IIFA Awards and even Apsara Awards for things like “Best Villain”, “Best Supporting Actor”, “Best Movie”, “Hottest New Film” and more! Now that’s impressive!
19 – Dharmendra
He might be 77 years old right now but back in his day, Dharmendra sure was a good looking man! To many women around the world, he still is. Born December 8th, 1935, Punjab-born Dharmendra is really called Dharam Singh Deol and is well known to be a great Hindi actor. In fact, he has played such a part in the Hindi movie industry that he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Filmfare ceremony in 1997! Now that’s impressive stuff!
One of the roles that he is most notable for was from a film released back in 1975 called Sholay. In the movie, Dharmendra played the part of Veeru in the action-adventure. He was one of the main criminals in the film and what a fine criminal he played!
The talent once again runs in this family and the two sons that Dharmendra had with his first wife, Prakash Kaur are both very successful actors – Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol.
With his second wife, Hema Malini, he has two daughters called Esha Deol and Ahana Deol who are also both very successful actresses!
He’s no spring chicken but there’s something about him that still tugs on the heart strings of women all over the globe. We just thought we’d give him a little mention…
18 – Barun Sobti
When you take a look at this 29 year old hunk, you can understand why he has become so popular among the ladies… He is seriously hot! Born in India on 21st August, 1984, Barun Sobti is a TV actor as well as an Indian model. We told you he was hot!
He’s married (sorry ladies!) and has been since 2010 when he married his high school sweetheart. Isn’t that the cutest story?
It was his first role in the STAR Plus aired TV family soap called Shraddha that boosted him into beautiful Bollywood heights and he played the part of Swayam Khurana in this. The lead role in his debut show certainly was a sign of good things to come and it would appear that things are only going to get better for him from here on out.
He’s won a bunch of awards for his roles in things like Shraddha, Boogie Woogie, Dill Mill Gayye and Baat Hamari Pakki Hai and there are even a couple of films that came out this year which just goes to show how busy he has been!
17 – Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh Khan or SRK as he is also known is one of the finest Bollywood actors the colourful world has to offer us. He’s 48 years old but that’s not stopping him!
He was born in New Delhi, India on November 2nd, 1965 (Happy belated Birthday, Shah Rukh Khan!) and has starred in over 75 Hindi films since he started his acting career back in 2001. From action thrillers right through to romantic comedies, Shah Rukh Khan has been in the lot. He’s won a massive array of awards including 14 Fanfare Awards and an astounding 30-odd nominations.
He’s made a lot of money over the years too. He apparently owns a number of high-end properties including a £20 million place in London and a big place in New Delhi. It’s not all spend, spend, spend with this guy – he does a lot of charity and humanitarian work in his spare time, but he tries to keep most of it super secret.
16 – Prithviraj Sukumaran
This guy has a beautiful body, a whopping body and a vast array of talents up his sleeve, it would seem. He’s a producer as well as a playback singer and an Indian actor. With his fingers in Hindi films plus Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam films. He’s certainly been keeping himself busy. The fact that his father is the very popular and successful Malayalam film actor and film producer, Sukumaran. There are some pretty impressive films in his list too – Nandanam, Stop Violence back in 2002, Mozhi, Chocolate in 2007 and Celluloid in 2012. On top of his impressive filmography, Prithviraj Sukumaran is the youngest actor ever to win the Kerala State Award for “Best Actor” – we told you he was hot!
Born on October 16th, 1982, the 31 year old actor has one film due to come out soon called D Company; an action drama that is sure to see him looking beautiful and buff. For now we will entertain you with this beautiful photo of him… It would be rude not to!
15 – Aamir Khan
Aamir Hussain Khan was born in Maharashtra, India on 14th March, 1965 which makes him stand at a very handsome 48 years old. He’s no spring chicken but he certainly gets the hearts fluttering of millions of women all over the world. He’s been active since around 1973 in the acting world and aside from taking a few years out here and there, he’s kept himself rather busy.
He’s on his second wife and now has three kids and on top of this, a rather busy filming career that has kept him nicely nestled amongst plenty of awards and nominations at various awards ceremony. Not just an actor, Aamir Khan is a director and a producer as well and although he has won a whole bunch of awards, he never actually turns up to collect them… He believes that the Indian filming awards “lack credibility”
He’s got a few films coming out soon – Peekay, for example, is due out next year. There is also Dhoom 3 which has been completed and is awaiting release. Keep your eyes peeled ladies!
14 – Shahid Kapoor
This beautiful Indian actor is on this list for a reason – he is one of the cutest men alive! Also known as Shahid Khattar, he was born in Delhi, Indian on 25th Feburary 1981. He started on commercials and advertisements at the beginning of his career, adding music videos to his portfolio of work. His Bollywood debut was back in 2003 when he starred in Ishq Vishk. He actually won the award for Best Male Debut at the Filmfare Awards for that one! From there, he has just gone from strength to strength.
The vegetarian actor has been linked to a truing of women during his acting career. He married Kareena Kapoor in 2004 as they were filming Fida, but they later separated and since then, he has been romantically linked to Nargis Fakhri, Priyanka Chopra and Vidya Balan despite his attempts to keep his private life private.
Luckily for you ladies that love him, he has been busy filming and has one film due to be released in 2014 called Haider. He plays the lead character in the film and it promises to be a good one.
13 – Siddharth
Born in April 17th, 1979, this 34 year old Bollywood actor not only boasts acting on his resume. He’s a producer, playback singer and a writer! It would certainly seem that he has been gifted with many talents!
It was back in 2003 that he made his acting debut in the film Boys. This became a very successful film as did some of his other films Bommarillu, Rang De Basanti and Nenoddantana.
Back in 2012, he made the leap from actor to producer and decided to start up his own production company called Etaki Entertainment, and has been noted to have said that directing is his real passion. We certainly would agree with him!
Not just good to look at and talented in the world of film, he’s smart too. With a Bachelor of Commerce (Honors) and a CNBC Manager of the Year Award, it would seem that there is nothing this hot Bollywood actor can’t do.
12 – Saif Ali Khan
This 43 year old actor is for the older ladies that like the more refined Bollywood hottie. Born in New Delhi, India on 16th August, 1970, he is well known the circle of Bollywood. and with his first success in 1994 with films such as Main Khiladi Tu Anari and Yeh Dillagi, he has found pretty impressive fame ever since.
He was born into fame to some extent with his father being the cricket player Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and his mother being the actress Sharmila Tagore, and he was even married to an actress for a while. In 1991 he married Amrita Singh but they later broke up in 2004 after having a couple of kids together. Back in 2012 he married another actress, Kareena Kapoor after they were together for five years. She is another great name in the world of Bollywood.
Back to Saif and he now has a VERY impressive number of films under his belt. He also has a pretty impressive array of awards to boast about as well. In short, it would appear that this man is very talented indeed. It’s just a shame he’s married!
11 – Ranbir Kapoor
Born in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India on 28th September, 1982, the 31 year old Bollywood actor certainly sets the hearts racing of thousands of women all over the world. With no less than five Filmfare awards under his belt, he was born in acting royalty, with both of his parents being actors (Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh) and he is also the Grandson of the great Bollywood actor, Raj Kapoor. His first film may have been a Box Office flop back in 2007, but he certainly redeemed himself and is now well known as one of the reputable names in the Indian film industry.
He’s also a serious name among the ladies, it would seem. He has been linked romantically to a string of women and was even in a long term relationship with actress Deepika Padukone, which attracted some serious media attention. They had an amicable split according to him, and he has definitely been making it up for it ever since.
Now one of the most high-profile and popular Indian actors around of our time, it would seem that he’s not going to be going anywhere soon, and with no less than three films coming out in 2014 alone, he is determined to make his mark!
10 – Arjun Rampal
This 41 year old hot Bollywood actor has certainly made a name for himself over the years. Not only is he considered to be a Bollywood actor but he also produces, models, hosts TV shows and more… He seems to have made a name for himself by starring in films that stand outside the box, so to speak, with a number of his performances being considered to be unconventional; whatever that may mean.
Happily married to the beautiful Miss India Mehr Jesia, they have two beautiful daughters together born in 2002 and 2005. Happy in life as well as successful in business – could life be any better for this guy right now?
He’s a very versatile actor and is well known for his good looks and charm as well as the way that he presents himself on set. Sometimes called “the hunk” by fans of Bollywood, he was even voted as Times of India’s “Most Desirable Man” back in 2012 and he needed to beat 49 other guys to get there! We told you he was hot!
9 – John Abraham
Another hot Bollywood actor in his 40’s, John Abraham is another Indian actor with more than one trick up his sleeve. He’s a former model and producer as well as appearing in hit films such as Jism which actually won him the award for Best Debut at the Filmfare Awards in 2003. He later got a couple more Filmfare awards for his part in the commercially fabulous Dhoom, and with a VERY impressive string of films under his belt, you can understand the media frenzy surrounding him.
It was during the filming of Dhoom that things started to heat up between him and his co-star Bipasha Basu. From 2002 to 2011 they were in a relationship but it would seem that she is keeping her mouth well and truly clamped shut on the news that he has recently tied the knot again; this time to Priya Runchal. Let’s wish him all the love and happiness in the world for 2014… and Bipasha too!
8 – Randeep Hooda
Heading below the age of 40 now and we come to yet another man that is commonly found on hottest Bollywood men lists – Randeep Hooda. He’s hot, dark, tall and mysterious looking which is perhaps what has created him a rather impressive fanbase, and his rather rugged good looks have bagged him more than a few film roles.
He was born on the 29th August in 1976, making him currently stand at 37 years old. Originally born in Haryana in India, he studies in Australia for a while when he was younger, before he later returned back to his home country to pursue his film and modelling career.
The first film he starred in was Monsoon Wedding back in 2001 and it was quite a while before he came back with a second film – not until almost five years later. The second film earned him what can only be called critical acclaim, with D in 2005. There were a few projects that didn’t really go anywhere after this but he soon hit back with a vengeance in Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai in 2010 which shot him to super stardom.
He’s not just into filming either – he’s quite the keen sports player which instantly makes him a thousand times hotter doesn’t it? He loves to play polo and show jumping; anything equestrian based. He also loves to blog in his spare time and has been known to call himself a social activist. Whatever he likes to call himself, he sure is one fine Bollywood actor, isn’t he?
We’ll just give you a moment to stare lovingly at his picture! 😉
7 – Hrithrik Roshan
The first thing that many ladies fall in love with when they first spot hot Bollywood actor Hrithrik Roshan is his beautiful eyes – they are simply to die for. In the filming world, he is perhaps better know for his outstanding work ethics and his versatility and ability to work in a number of different roles. Whatever you might know him as, he sure is pretty to look at!
It was back in 2000 that this 39 year old hottie first struck up in the acting world with his film debut in Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai. Born 10th January, 1974 in Maharashtra, India, he was lucky enough to win awards for his debut performance including Best Male Actor and Best Male Debut in the Filmfare Awards for the same film. Luckily he has gone from strength to strength since then, picking films that have been pretty big in the world of Bollywood, including Fiza, Mission Kashmir, and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham most recently in 2011.
When you look at his family background, you can understand how come he has been so popular in the world of Bollywood. His family includes some pretty impressive names from his father, Rakesh Roshan is the well known Bollywood film director, his grandfather on his mother’s side is J. Om Prakash; yet another name in Bollywood history. Then there’s the music director uncle! There’s a whole load of talent going on in that family and we aren’t just talking about Hrithrik Roshan’s beautiful face and buff body either!
6 – Akshay Kumar
He’s been lucky enough to start in over a hundred Hindi films in his time and when you add to the mix that he is a martial artist as well as an actor, you can understand how come this has happened. He might only be 46 years old but he’s been active in the film world since about 1991 and has managed to notch up a few job titles since then – there’s actor, martial artist (as we have already mentioned) plus presenter, producer and author. Doesn’t he just get hotter and hotter?
He’s won two Filmfare Awards and been nominated for a whole bunch more. In total it is said that he has had the pleasure of starring in over 125 films altogether. How on earth has he managed that?
He’s married with two kids as well which might make things even more astonishing. Most us can barely hold down a full time job and he’s running a family with two kids as well as making over one hundred movies! Well done Akshay!
It’s funny because he has been engaged twice to the mother of his children – the actress Twinkle Khanna. They eventually got married back in 2001 and it would seem that they have managed to find that elusive happy-ever-after together. Well done for them, right?
5 – Imran Khan
It was only a matter of time before this guy made his way to the list, wasn’t it? The very successful Indian actor, responsible for some of the most amazing Hindi films out there, also has a star-studded family just like Hrithrik Roshan. His uncle is Aamir Khan; the actor that appears as number 15 on this list. (You can find this name and his beautiful pictures in Part A if you’ve not already seen it!) On top of that, he has another uncle – Mansoor Khan, who is a well known producer and director in the world of Bollywood. There’s also the famous grandfather to throw into the mix as well – the producer and director Nasir Hussain. Not just influencing his adult career, it would appear that they were major influences for him as a child. He entered the star-studded world of Bollywood at a rather young age, appearing in films such as Qayamat Se Quayamat Tak in 1988 and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander in 1992. He’s only 30 years old now – born 13th January, 1983. This actually makes him one of the younger members of this list. It would appear that Bollywood actors just get hotter as they get older, much like some of the other actors in Hollywood. Why not take a peek at Hottest Male Actors in their 40’s to see what we mean!
Not only is Imran Khan one of the hottest men in Bollywood, he is also considered to be one of the most stylish as well, which is never a bad title to have! He loves his charity work for PETA and even writes columns for The Hindustan Times from time to time. Is there nothing this guy can’t do? He even organises charity events… Aren’t you just in love with him already?
Sadly ladies, he’s not single. He was in a ten year relationship with a girl called Avantika Malik and they got married back in 2011. We are very happy to announce that they are going to be expecting their first baby in June 2014! We cannot wait to see how beautiful that child will be!
4 – Rahul Khanna
The Mumbai born actor, Rahul Khanna was originally a video jockey with MTV Asia back in 1994. For four years he kept himself going and built himself quite the fan base. This of course made it easier for him to make the leap later on in life to acting… A leap that proved to be a very good idea for him.
41 year old Rahul Khanna is known for his good looks as well as his video jockeying skills or his straight-acting face. He has been the celebrity endorsement behind a whole host of products from Tommy Hilfiger, Toyota, Lays chips, Audi, Johnnie Walker and more… We told you he was super cute! 😉
As well as his modelling career taking off, his acting career became a great move too. His film debut was alongside Aamir Khan (Number 15 on our list) in the great hit 1947 Earth. This amazing role earned him many awards and just one of those was the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut.
3 – Kunal Kapoor
This 36 year old actor is well known in the world of Bollywood. Born in Mumbai on October 18th, 1977, this star of Hindi film is probably better known for his part in the award-winning film Rang De Basanti which bagged him a Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2006.
Since then, he has been in a number of movies including Doga in 2013, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana in 2012, Don 2 in 2011 and even Welcome to Sanjjanpur in 2008. He’s even been the assistant director in one movie too – 2001’s Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. It seems that’s where he left his directing shoes however… He hasn’t done any real directing work since then!
It was the film Rang De Basanti that shot him to Bollywood fame and it was almost as if he became a hit across the world overnight. It was even nominated for a BAFTA award in the Foreign Film category – that’s how good it was! Commercially and critically successful; it certainly hasn’t hurt his career that’s for sure.
There are a few things about this Bollywood hottie that might surprise you. First of all, he is a trained pilot and includes flying as one of his favourite hobbies. We are sure we could get used to heights, right ladies? He is also currently in training to race in the national rally championship under a former champion of the sport. So he’s exciting and thrilling as well as pretty to look at. We know – we’re spoiling you ladies! 😉
2 – Anil Kapoor
He’s in no way related to Kunal Kapoor (Number 3) but he certainly rivals him in the “hotness” stakes. This guy is a bit older however; born on Christmas Eve in 1956, he is currently standing at an incredible 57 years of age. We certainly don’t think he looks 3 years away from 60… Do you?
He’s not just an actor, he produces too. He has has an impressive career that has lasted over thirty decades and that has given him the perfect experience to try his hand at producing. It would seem that he was just as good at this as he was acting with his first producing film being Gandhi, My Father. Released in 2007, the film won a bunch of awards – the National Film awards included Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor and even Special Jury Award.
Things don’t just stop there ladies – it would seem that he has even further talents still. He has been known, on occasion, to add more of his mark on the film. He has been known to sing on the soundtracks for some of the movies he has starred in. The comedy released in 1986 called Chameli Ki Shaadi saw us seeing more of his funny side in the hilarious song. There’s been a few more soundtracks since then. It is incomprehensible just how talented some of these guys are! And HOT!
1 – Ayushmann Khurrana
He’s one of the youngest guys on our list but when you see just how successful this guy has become, you can understand why he bags himself the top spot. At just 29 years old, Indian actor, Ayushmann has branched out… a lot! He now sings, anchors TV shows and presents! His debut film certainly shot him to super stardom and when the 2012 hit Vicky Donor was released, it may have turned heads but it helped by definitely getting him noticed.
He’s been a contestant on a reality TV show, a DJ for radio AND a video jockey on top of everything else. How does he find the time to fit it all in?
It was seem that brains run in his family as well as good look. Believe it or not, his father is actually a very well respected astrologer and author on the topic while his mother is a fully qualified M.A. in Hindi. You’ve got a radio jockey brother to throw into the mix as well. Now that is a family and a half!
Blogging in his spare time and being a fabulous looking husband to his childhood sweetheart Tahira, this guy is bound to get hotter and more fabulous as he ages… Just watch this space!
So there you have them – the final ten parts of our beautiful Bollywood journey. What did you think? Is there anyone that we missed out on with our list here? We’d love to know your thoughts.
We’d also love it if you took a look around the site! If it’s eye candy you’re looking for, you can definitely find it around here!
