5. Arjun Kapoor

Following a similar career graph of Siddharth Malhotra, Arjun Kapoor, the young macho-man of Bollywood, made his debut in Bollywood with a notable hit, 'Ishaqzaade', but expeditiously went downhill with regular debacles like 'Aurangzeb', 'Tevar', 'Mubarakan' and the most recent one, 'Namaste England'. With no movies which are a total 180 compared to the ones that he did before, Arjun Kapoor remains one of those talents who is a bit overexposed in Bollywood with talent not being the top attribute.


4. Siddharth Malhotra

Commencing his career with the polarizing Karan Johar directorial 'Student of the Year', Siddharth Malhotra, at the speed of light, became the sweetheart of Bollywood forging ahead to a Superstar status. But, his career to a large extent is underwhelming so far. Regardless of a few box-offices hits, his acting skills, by and large, has not stood out unlike his SOTY brethren and pal, Varun Dhawan who shaped his career with a good mixture of widely-appreciated commercial and also experimental films. Malhotra's recent box-office disaster 'Aiyaary' is surely a clear indication of where his career is heading, A Brick Wall! Sucks to see an actor with such a high-profile debut crumple into the pits of the forgotten stars.


3. Tiger Shroff

Making his debut alongside Kriti Sanon in the 2014 romantic-drama 'Heropanti', the action guy of Bollywood or should I say the prolific remake star of South Indian movies, Jai Hemant Shroff, is spectacular as far as action sequences and dance numbers go. But, if you've ever seen him act, he is most probably one of the worst performers out there. One remake after another, watching him act is either cringe-worthy or unpleasant, but, he got producers lining up for him to make movies because of his ability to pull massive box-office numbers, despite the fact that the online critics never gave a single positive review to any of his five movies until now.


2. John Abraham

“I don’t want to (act) with John Abraham because he is expressionless.” - Kareena Kapoor Khan

Well, she may not be wrong, because the model turned A-List actor, John Abraham is well-known for his six-foot height, sexy looks and the six-pack body, but, not for his acting skills, which should be the top priority if your profession is acting. With plentiful disasters throughout his filmography, Abraham maybe following Akshay Kumar's route by making patriotic movies since the past few years, but, there are no colossal improvements with regards to his acting performance and I don't see him fixing it anytime soon.


1. Salman Khan

The most eligible Bachelor, the box-office star and most importantly, The Bhai, Salman Khan tops this list for all obvious reasons, in particular, his underwhelming talent in acting. Although his charisma, body language and commercial films garnered him millions of fans worldwide, even barring a few emotional movies, he's not the kind of actor who impressed his audience with remarkable performances, but, with his shirtless scenes and peppy dance numbers. Moviegoers never remembered him as an incredible talent, but as a commercial movie star who makes movies that only do well at the box-office.
