We are a star-driven industry.
Shah Rukh Khan [ Images ] is one of the industry's most-successful producers, Aamir Khan [ Images ] is a top-rung director, and Akshay Kumar [ Images ] is king of the box office, reportedly demanding Rs 42 crores -- and getting it, easily.
Yet in all this stardom, the real actors are often ignored. There are great performers in Indian cinema, and for various reasons -- for low glamour to the lack of a filmi background -- they get sidelined and unfairly ignored in the favour of yet another well-bodied star, or their kid.
So we ask you, dear reader, about the underrated performers.
Performers like Kay Kay Menon [ Images ], Ranvir Sheorey, Pankaj Kapoor, Konkana Sensharma, Vinay Pathak [ Images ], Zakir Hussain [ Images ], Pawan Malhotra and the fantastic Irrfan Khan [ Images ] come to mind.
But this is your decision.
