10 stars who still rule Bollywood, rest don't matter

Ranveer Singh's chiseled body might make many women skip a heart beat or many of his fans might take up to his moustache look, but the actor won't be able to beat the Khans at the box office. Bollywood's young brigade has all the quintessential qualities of an actor. They are good looking, popular and definitely display acting prowess, but it's the actors from 90s who continue to rule the roost.
The Khans continue to be the undisputed kings of Bollywood. Even the mere mention of them attracts many to the theatres. Despite being in their late 40s, they are giving young actors like Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Ranveer Singh a run for their money. There is no denying the fact that the young brigade is slowly and steadily making a mark for themselves in the industry but undoubtedly the 'older' actors continue to rake in more moolah at the Box Office.
Despite the innumerable actors making it big in Bollywood, here is our list of 10 actors who are currently ruling the Bollywood.

Shah Rukh Khan: Bollywood's favourite 'Rahul' might have finally aged on screen but the actor still has the ability to charm his fans. Even in his late 40s, Shah Rukh Khan is romancing the youngest of heroines and experimenting with new roles, giving the young brigade a run for their money. Be it the superhero in 'Ra.One' or an army officer in 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', Shah Rukh has the charisma that still attracts his innumerable fans to the theatres. And, what proves it better than his Rs 200 crore club film 'Chennai Express' which broke all the records.

Aamir Khan: Bollywood's Mr. Perfectionist is known to sign one film a year and his hard work makes them one of the most anticipated films of the year. With every film, he dares to take an extra leap which makes his characters all the more intriguing and interesting. But more than the acting, no actor knows marketing gimmicks better than Aamir Khan and the actor surely knows how to sell his films and lure more people to it.

Priyanka Chopra: She not just proved her acting mettle in films like 'Saat Khoon Maaf' and 'Barfi!', but the actress has also given Bollywood some of its popular special songs. From 'Ram Chahe Leela' to 'Babli Badmaash Hai', the actress is here to stay for a long time.

Salman Khan: When it comes to popularity, no Khan can beat Salman Khan. The actor no longer plays the chocolate lover boy on screen but he does know the hit formula. From 'Wanted' to 'Dabangg 2', most of the films in the recent past have entered Rs 100 crore club.

Katrina Kaif: Known for her good looks, the 'Chikini Chameli' of Bollywood has bagged roles opposite some of the biggest stars and film banners. Though, Katrina might not have been given meaty roles in films but her popularity amongst female actresses is unmatchable. After working with Shah Rukh and Salman Khan, she will be next seen with Aamir Khan in 'Dhoom 3'.

Saif Ali Khan: The original risk taker of Bollywood, Saif Ali Khan never ceased to experiment with roles on screen. From playing the very rustic Langada Tyagi in 'Omkara' to the suave spy in 'Agent Vinod', he has definitely joined the league of the most bankable actors of Bollywood.

Vidya Balan: Called the female 'Khan' of Bollywood, Vidya Balan is the only actress who has given the undisputed Khans a tough competition at the box office. Unlike the other actresses, she stays away from being used just as a prop in the film but rather believes to carry a film entirely on her shoulders.

Akshay Kumar: Not many actors can beat Akshay Kumar in comedies and his comic timing is what makes him one of the most sought after actors in Bollywood. Being the typical 'Dilli ka ladka', he has a strong fan following in North India.

Deepika Padukone: Her contemporaries might be signing as many films as Deepika, but none of them has been able to give three blockbusters in a row. The actress has not just grown leaps and bounds in terms of her acting skills but has also been very careful in choosing the right kind of films for her.
Sonakshi Sinha: She started her career opposite Salman Khan in 'Dabangg' and since then there has been no looking back for Soankshi Sinha. She signed 12 films in less than three and most of her films have entered Rs 100 crore clubs, making her one of the popular actresses of recent times.
