They all have their ups and downs but for me Aamir has to be it.

For the sheer effort he puts in. I have not seen anything like it. A dedicated one year for one role and we have movies like 3 idiots, Ghajini, PK, Dangal. We also get the occasional Dhoom 3s but they can be called anomalies.

story wise screenplay which was smooth as anything though there were something abt not good but as a movie it was very good otherwise why people liked it so much
so many of my friends and family watched that movie multiple times in theatre


ab thoda bada chhaada kar to btate hi hain movie me yaar log jhansi ki raani bhagat singh movies me kuch bhi daal dete hai to fir sanju ky HAIN


Bhavat singh, Rani Laxmibai were legends. You can't compare sanjay dutt with them.

He was shown to be an innocent blue eyed boy. As a movie i found it irritating as well. Maybe i was in that mindset. I had made my mind that I won't like it.


are i m not comparing but to play and give wrong details with those legends is a bigger crime than with sanju in manikarnika being from that place i can tell you enormously fallacies and distorted facts

i am just saying movie wise story wise direction and entertainment wise most importantly i liked it infact my friend and i repeated it back to back the same day

I did not explain my point then. HR is after SRK's era. It is a personal opinion na. Among SRK and Aamir I find the latter to be a much better actor. To bol dia. I guess that makes it clear.


hahaha every single minute point in this forumhas a potential for large debate


how about Ajay? whhich era he belong to?...I dont mind if u chose 10 more actor from same era over srk because it is ur personal choice, I only pointed out ur contradict statement that u reply to Seinfeld that u have to chose one actor from each era hence u chosed chosed amir over srk...

anyway aamir ferformance like lagaan, dangal rdb have came after HR's debut in 2000...that would be separate discussion


Hahahaha lambodkar....in another post he will answer differently...don't worry. He is little confused...and don't know which era Ajay devgan belongs to..

Well i prefer ZNMD & BB over Guzaarish, OSO & CE over MNIK ..
JWM & YDMM over Haider & UP ...

No no bro. Don't even try. He's not fit for sensible arguments.

Talk about India's biggest female superstars and he'll find a way to squeeze akki in that list as well


to akshay is a great actor one of the best of modern era nothing to bloat or hide about it


chalo aaj bahut bajaai saare sallu fans ki abhi lunch break fir koi korean movie so gimme a break


Bro you made a mistake..I think Akshay should be on the top..afterall he's the only actor who's got such a big fanbase in overseas..also it's commendable how he got accepted by the Indian audience..if anyone deserves to be the greatest actor it's akshay Kumar.
