India is a land of cultural diversity and much of this is visible in Indian cinema as well. Though most of you would denote Indian cinema with Bollywood, note that Indian cinematic culture spans across its varied states and culture. Each region has its own history of film-making and its own legends to reckon with. While some of them became national heroes and torch-bearers of the world of acting, the rest are popular mass champions. However, what binds them all together is their love for entertainment, abundant talent, overwhelming performance and exceptional acting skills. Be it Rajnikanth or Amitabh Bachchan, Raj Kapoor or Mohanlal, Shahrukh Khan or Kamal Hassan, Anil Kapoor or Salman Khan, Indian actors have done their country proud with their cinematic excellence. Interestingly, Indian actors cannot be stereotyped into a particular type of cinema. They have made their presence felt in both art and commercial movies and brought home numerous accolades and honors for their accomplishments. It is to these reel-life heroes that we dedicate this section. Browse through out following write up and get details about the life and works of famous Indian actors.
