There are hardly good actors in Bollywood; those who play in lead roles, Some are bad, Some are worse and some are the worst. Still, some bad actors are our favorites so we deny they are bad in acting. In fact, acting hardly matters in Bollywood but yea some actors are worst they are disliked by the majority.

22. Sunil Shetty

Sunil Shetty, that oooohhhhyy sound, We all know him by that sound, not because of his acting. He has acted in many movies, He has given some big hits like Mohra, Border, Hera Pheri. Well! that’s Indian cinema, you don’t need acting to become a star. He is a poor actor.

21. Salman Khan

Salman Khan worst bollywood actor 4

Well, some fans may argue why he is on this list. Salman Khan is a superstar no doubt about it, his movies don’t need anything as long as he is on the screen, but that doesn’t make him a good actor, he has been in this industry for more than 30 years; still, he couldn’t learn to act. He is a perfect bad actor.

20. Bobby DeolBobby Deol Worst Bollywood Actor

Bobby Deol, son of a big star Dharmendra, His acting career didn’t go that well like his father and brother. Well! Neither of them is a good actor but yea they had some X factor. Bobby Deol couldn’t click because he has no XYZ factor. Poor acting, no expression, No dance, lol.

19. Imran Khan

Imran khan worst Bollywood Actor

His debut movie in a leading role in “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na” made is a star in a day. He was considered as the most cute-looking actor of that time. He wasn’t new to Hindi cinema, He has played as a child artist in “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak” & In “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander”. However, his poor acting wasn’t tolerated for a longer period of time. after a few hits and flops and disasters; he disappeared from Bollywood.

18. Emraan Hashmi

Imraan Haasmi Worst Bollywood Actor

Some female actress has received a good number of movies for demonstrating sex appeal. Emraan Hashmi probably the first male actor to replicate this way of achieving success. “Bheege honth tere” that bheege bheege smooch made him a star. He did manage to get many hits in his bag but most of them were because of those awesome songs not because of his acting. Rest you all know, If not try watching some of his movies.

17. Sohail Khan

Sohail Khan worst bollywood actor

Sohail Khan youngest brother of Salman Khan and worse actor than him. He started his small acting career with “Maine Dil Tujhko Diya” which did average business at the box office. This tube light couldn’t shine at the box office so he started his new career as a director and producer.

16. John Abraham

John Abraham worst bollywood actor

Bad actors come and go! Only a few bad actors become a star and sometimes a superstar. Despite his horrible acting; John Abraham has given many hits. This actor with no expressions is a star in Bollywood.

15. Arbaaz Khan

Arbaaz Khan worst bollywood actor

Arbaaz Khan younger brother of Salman khan. Arbaaz Khan made his debut in the 1996 film “Daraar” in a negative role of a psychotic wife-beater. He received the Filmfare Best Villain Award for his performance. Please! ignore that Filmfare award it has nothing to do with acting. Please watch “hello Brother”; Your doubts will be clear.

14. Fardeen Khan

Fardeen khan worst bollywood actor 10


Fardeen Khan is the son of Late legendary actor Feroz Khan so it wasn’t difficult for him to enter into the film industry. But to stay in Bollywood you need to act at least a little or you need good luck like SRK. Fardeen’s career also didn’t go well because of his unskilled acting. I personally liked his one scene in movie “Heyy Babyy”; That slow driving.

13. Tushar Kapoor

Tussar Kapoor worst bollywood actor 9

Tushar Kapoor is another star kid who comes in the worst actor list. Although his acting was praised for some films like Golmal and Shootout at Lokhandwala, But most of his films received negative review because of his pathetic acting.

12. Uday Chopra

Uday Chopra worst bollywood actor 8

Uday Chopra is the son of Late director and producer Yash Chopra. His acting is considered to be worst because of his dead expression and overacting in Dhoom series. He is now seen only in multi-starer films. He is currently  in Los Angeles learning film making at UCLA

11. Harman Baweja

Harman Baweja worst bollywood actor 7

Harman Baweja is the son of Indian film producer Harry Baweja. His early films were a big disaster like “Love story 2050”,” What’s ur rashee” and “Victory” His career in the film was doomed because of wrong selection of films and of course his acting. Some may argue he should be on top of the list but hey wait we have some bigger bad actors down the line.


10. Tiger shroff

Tiger Shroff worst bollywood actor 6

Tiger Shroff son of Jackie Shroff has made 6th rank on this list, although it is too early to declare him as a bad actor; he has just started and is too young. He still has time to learn. if we look at the past performance of Sanjay Dutt, Akshaya Kumar, they were even worse than him. Tiger Shroff acting may not be up to the mark but his stunts are damn good.


9. Siddharth Malhotra

sidharth malhotra worst bollywood actor 5

Siddharth has done a few films and some of them has done a good business at the box office. He started his career with Karan Johar’s film “Student of the Year” which was a super hit. But his dead expression and monotone bring him to this list.

8. Dino Morea

Dino Morea worst bollywood actor
Dino Morea started his short career with the movie “Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi”, He could hardly manage to get one hit movie in his career “Raaz”. He is probably one of the few actors who has given so many disasters to Bollywood. Talking about his acting skill, LOL, let’s not, He is a model, not an actor.

7. Ashmit Patel

Ashmit Patel Worst bollywood actor
Ashmit Patel made his debut in 2003 with Vikram Bhatt’s “Inteha” which was a disaster. Only a few people who know him as an actor is because of the movie “Murder”, Yes he was in that movie if you had noticed. He got no credit whatsoever for that movie. Well, his expressions are so dead that even a hit couldn’t make an impact.

6. Upen Patel

Upen Patel worst bollywood actor

Well! If I can put Sahil Khan on this list then Upen Patel deserves to be here. At least he has acted in some south movies as well. He is a model and a poor actor, sorry! very poor actor.

5. Zayed Khan

Zayed Khan worst bollywood actor

Zayed Khan made his screen debut in 2003 in the film “Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne” which was a disaster. In 2004 he got another chance with SRK in the movie “Mein hoon na”. This movie was a hit. After that, he did get some movies but none of them could click at the box office. Yes, movie “Dus” did average income but that couldn’t help him much! His over expressions and poor dialog delivery crashed his acting career.

4. Jackky Bhagnani

Jackky Bhagnani worst bollywood actor 3

Vashu Bhagnani’s son came into limelight with the very forgettable Kal Kissne Dekha and has been torturing us ever since. His acting is really poor. WARNING: He has some movies releasing in 2020.

3. Sahil Khan

Sahil Khan started an extremely small acting career (Without acting) with movie “Style”, But this actor has got only a good body but no-style. I feel I have named him only to make this list bigger. I wanted to make a list of more popular poor actors not 1-2 movie actors like him.

2. Himesh Reshammiya

Himesh Reshammiya worst bollywood actor 2

Ladies and gentlemen hold your breath, the worst actor in the male runner up award goes to Himesh Reshammiya

Himesh Reshammiya is an Indian singer, music composer turned Actor. As a singer, he gave hit songs like “Aashiq Banaya Aapne”, “Tera Suroor”, “Zara Jhoom Jhoom”,  “Hookah Bar”, “Chalao Na Naina Se” and many more. But as an actor, he is one of the worst in the history of Indian cinema. I stopped listening to his songs after I saw him acting on the screen.

1. Sonu Nigam

Sonu Nigam worst Bollywood actor 2

And the worst acting award goes to Sonuuuuuu Nigaaaaam

Most of you may not even know that Sonu Nigam has also acted in some movies. If you wanna have fun just google his movie’s scenes, you will die laughing! I wonder why did he even think about acting. He is the first actor in the history of the world whose singing career was hampered due to acting in movies.
