Average-looking Actors who Rocked Bollywood

Because they are much more than their appearance.

Do you think that only good-looking people get break in Bollywood? Think again. Bollywood has always preferred fair skin and light eyes, but it doesn’t mean that actors with ordinary looks have not made it big. Here is a list of average-looking actors who rocked the Bollywood.

1. Shahrukh Khan

Shahrukh Khan is the second richest star in the world. He is a global icon. Shahrukh Khan is an inspiration for many struggling as well as non-struggling actors, as he has established himself as one of the most popular actors across the entire world. ‘King of Bollywood’ is not exactly a handsome-looking guy. But he has still managed to sweep girls off their feet through his contagious charm and cute dimples.

2. Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Bachchan is an enviable personality. He attracts attention everywhere he goes. Blame it on his immensely tall height or strong voice, Amitabh Bachchan captivated everyone’s senses. He is not handsome in the stereotypical kind of way, but there is something exceptional about him which forces us to not take our eyes off of him.

3. Nawazuddin Siddiqui

After struggling for almost a decade, Nawazuddin Siddiqui finally became a recognized face in Bollywood. He is a highly motivational person who inspires everyone to follow their dreams. Nawazuddin has admitted that he didn’t get lead roles because of his appearance and had to settle down for low-life characters. But he has finally gained the much needed attention from the audience.


4. Irrfan Khan

Irrfan Khan is showcasing his terrific acting skills in Bollywood as well as Hollywood. Despite being average-looking, we think that Irrfan Khan is an extremely adorable person and an excellent actor. We certainly need more actors like Irrfan Khan in our industry.

5. Kajol

Kajol’s unibrow became the talk of the town the moment she debuted. But it didn’t hold her back. Despite not having a fair skin and sharp features like that of other heroines, she has carved a place for herself in the Bollywood. She is certainly one of the most successful actresses Bollywood has ever produced.


6. Ajay Devgn

Ajay Devgn has never been your ‘fair-skin-blue-eyed’ guy. But he has still become one of the most known faces of Bollywood. Talent triumphs looks. Ajay Devgn has always entertained us with his amazing acting skills, and we do not think that any so-called gorgeous actor can ever replace him.

7. Nana Patekar

Everyone loves Nana Patekar. His quirky acting and atypical dialogue delivery have always made him stand out. Amidst an industry which is filled with John Abraham’s bulky body and Hrithik Roshan’s green eyes, we have got Nana Patekar in all his glory.

8. Konkona Sen Sharma

Konkona Sen Sharma has always been a quintessential actress. She is not as fair as Katrina Kaif or has an as perfect smile as that of Deepika Padukone, but we still think that Konkona Sen’s acting is enough to make us fall in love with her.

9. Dhanush

He became viral with ‘Why this Kolaveri Di?” and then won our hearts with Ranjhanaa. Dhanush doesn’t represent the typical good-looking actor, but he has still established himself in Bollywood as one of the most talented ones.


10. Vidya Balan

Vidya Balan has never been considered ‘gorgeous’ in the industry, but we have better adjectives for her. She is hardworking, talented, charming, witty and a lovable person. When you have got these many qualities, looks become secondary.
