Shah Rukh Khan to Ranveer Singh: Here's how tall your favourite Bollywood actors are

While most of our Bollywood stars look tall on screen, their height in real life will make your jaws drop. Don't believe us, have a look

If you have ever wondered how tall your favourite actor or actress is, you are not alone. After all, there’s a reason why height is one of the top suggestions to pop up when we look up a star on Google. Sometimes we see the lead actress wearing flats simply because the actor is short. Other times actors tower over even the tallest of the actresses. But are these stars really as short/tall as they look on screen? While most of our stars appear larger-than-life on screen, it is not always that they boast a height to back up that persona. Let us have a look at actors and their heights in reported figures.

Amitabh Bachchan 

The ‘angry young man’ of Bollywood must have been the perfect example of a tall, dark and handsome guy when he was in his prime age. With a height of 6 feet 2 inches, Amitabh Bachchan towers over his wife Jaya Bachchan (remember the scene from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham where Jaya Bachchan uses a stool to tie her husband’s tie).

Abhishek Bachchan 

Like father like son (at least when it comes to appearance), Abhishek Bachchan naturally has a good height and good looks for which he could give the credit to his genes. He is 6 feet 3 inches tall and is only minutely taller than his father.

Hrithik Roshan

With the looks of a Greek God, Hrithik Roshan has a huge fan following all over the world. But despite what assumptions you might have about his height, Hrithik is only 5 feet 10 inches tall. He sure is above average height but he misses the 6 feet club by two inches.

Deepika Padukone

This dimpled beauty has been a model before she stepped in Bollywood. Born to a badminton player it comes as no surprise that she played a lot of sport growing up and is 5 feet 8 inches tall.

Shah Rukh Khan

At 5 feet 8 inches, King Khan may not be the tallest guy in the industry, but he certainly makes up for it in looks and acting department.

 Salman Khan

With a body like that and his Dabangg persona, the actor usually appears larger-than-life on screen. But in real life, Salman Khan is only 5 feet 6 inches tall. Despite his not-so-tall height, this guy knows how to work his good looks in his favour.
