How can he do this every year? Akshay Kumar collected four hits in 2018 with each earned more than Rs 100 crore. In 2019, the actor recruited another four chart-toppers in his credit.

Akshay Kumar began this year with Anurag Singh directed historical drama Kesari and completed 2019 with the chucklesome Good Newwz. Movies that came in between the hits were respectively Mission Mangal and Housefull 4. The latter was hated by every film critic but got the love of many audiences.

With his evolved portrayals as well as great box-office status, it is no doubt that Akshay Kumar is, for the time being, the number one actor of Bollywood.

2. Ayushmann Khurrana

Ayushmann is Akshay Kumar of the working class. He is a dependable, solid man who talked volumes of his acting prowess through back-to-back successful films.

He proved opposite the stereotype that the working-class crusaders only suit for secondary success. Ayushmann Khurrana confidently graced this year with the politically strong as well as subject-matter contented films Dream Girl, Article 15, and Bala reaching the 100-crore mark.

3. Hrithik Roshan

Post a barren thrust phase which lasted for 2 years, (Mohenjo Daro underperformed and Kaabil became a flop in 2018 ), the actor was back to reckon.

Two successive mega-hits Super 30 and War made him the crown owner of the revenues. With a box office of Rs 200 crores for Super 30 and Rs 300 crores for War, Hrithik Roshan is considered the top money-spinner of Bollywood today.

4. Taapsee Pannu

Taapsee Pannu in "Mission Mangal".

Like Akshay KumarTaapsee Pannu owned four hits this year including Badlaa, Game, Mission Mangal and Saandh Ki Aankh. Among these four movies, there are three in which she played the protagonist.

For all of her 2019 work, Taapsee invested naturalism into her roles and it was nowhere near the exaggerated emotions the female heroes usually are expected to feast on while portraying dramatic characters.

Considered her box office achievements, Taapsee is the first female among the male-dominated box-office feat.
