Actors who have led 2018 with their remarkable work and monstrous box office collections like Ayushmann Khurana, Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Rajkumar Rao and Sohum Shah who delivered the Films of the year.
All of their films/characters definitely have an impact and are gonna stay with the audience even after leaving the Cinema hall.
Ajay Devgn has been one of those stars who has slowly but steadily climbed up the ladder in Bollywood. In fact, he is now that star who is not just a terrific actor but also a crowd puller. He paired up with his Baadshaho co-star Ileana D'Cruz once again for Raid. Based on true story, the film was an instant hit. In fact, even though the collection slowed down, it is one of the films that grossed 100+ crores.
The rant against girls just made the career of Karthik Aryan. Kartik Aryan had gained huge popularity among the male audience for his monologue in Pyaar Ka Punchnama and among the female audience for his chocolate boy looks. But with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety he just established himself as one of the bankable actors. Thanks to his popularity and the love for the terrific trio- Luv Ranjan, Kartik Aryan and Nushrat Bharuccha, the film collected 108.46 crores. He also got a lot of offers post this film.
Tiger Shroff has been one of those actors who will surely impress you with not just his acting skills but also with his action and dance moves. Needless to say, when all these were combined it Baaghi 2, audiences already got excited. Another huge plus in this film was that Tiger was paired, for the first time, along with rumoured girlfriend Disha Patani. Moreover, Tiger's ripped body and wash board abs made the girls swoon.
Shahid Kapoor who played the good king Rawal Ratan Singh in Padmaavat. While the character was too engrossed in upholding what being a Rajput means and what it is all about, there is no doubt about the fact that he was very good in his portrayal of this character. He played the husband to Rani Padmavati, who gave his life to protect Rajput honours and values. The film grossed a whopping 300.26 crores, making it the highest-grossing film in Shahid Kapoor's career.
One of the most bankable actors of Bollywood Ranveer Singh started the year with Padmaavat, in which he played Alauddin Khilji. Ranveer not only underwent physical transformation but also changed his body language and mannerism to suit the menacing character that he was about to portray on screen. So much so that he had reportedly started behaving the same way in real life too. The actor also had to reportedly see a psychologist to get himself out of that zone. Later in the year, Ranveer Singh took the box office by storm with Simmba. The film has earned around ₹ 200 crores on Box-Office.
Touted to be the next gen Superstar Ranbir Kapoor delivered just one film in 2018 which blew everyone's mind. He played Sanjay Dutt's character is his Biopic and ached his looks and mannerisms in every sense. The actor has already been applauded for his performance in Barfi, Rockstar Tamasha amongst others. His performance as Sanju was the highlight of 2018.
Vicky Kaushal is not exactly an outsider but he definitely is an actor who gave brilliant performances in 2018. He dominated the silver screen with back to back stellar performances in Meghna Gulzar's 'Raazi', Rajkumar Hirani's 'Sanju' and Anurag Kashyap's 'Manmarziyaan'. He also had two released on a digital platform 'Lust Stories' and 'Love Per Square Foot'. His first film as a leading actor 'Masaan' was also Critically acclaimed.
Sohum Shah's body of work has critically acclaimed films like Ship of Theseus, Talvar and Simran and his latest release Tumbbad. With a business background, this actor has definitely created a niche recall when it comes to acting. With every film, he has given memorable characters which won't be forgotten. Tumbbad has been his vision and he had been working towards it since last 6 years and after it's release it has become the most visually stunning film in Bollywood till date and is the first ever film to get nominated and open the Venice Film Festival. Sohum definitely has an inspiring journey from a small town 'Sri Ganganagar' in Rajasthan to 'Venice'.
Rajkummar is one such Actor who's acting has been praised by the Critics time and again but this year he definitely got his due. Without having any connections in Bollywood the actor has gone to become one of the most Critically acclaimed actors of our nation. A big hit was missing from his filmography which finally came. Rajkumar Rao finally got what he is worthy as a brilliant actor and it is a long way to go.
Ayushmann started his career as a RJ later became a VJ for one of the leading music channels in India. He got his Bollywood break with the movie Vicky Donor which went on the become one of the Critically and commercial profitable films of that year. Since then there is no stopping for the actor, his 2018 has been the highest peak of his life. The actor had two releases in October Badhaai Ho and Andhadhun. Both his films have gone on to become Critically and commercially successful. His filmography is truly an inspiration.
