Akshay Kumar has once again ranked at the top as the most popular male Hindi film star of 2021. The actor has been ranking at the top since some time now owing to the number of movies he releases in any given year, COVID-19 or otherwise. He overtook even the Khans as the most popular male star in Bollywood.

Ormax Media released a list of the most popular male Bollywood stars of 2021. Akshay ruled the roost, followed by, you guessed it, the Khans.

Take a look:

Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan were the most popular stars after Akshay. While SRK bagged the second spot, Salman is the third most popular male star of 2021 (Hindi).

Aamir Khan, surprisingly, came fifth in the list. Hrithik Roshan, who is yet to be seen in a movie after WAR (2019), is the fourth most popular male star in Bollywood in the year 2021.

The young superstars Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor also made it to the list. While Ranveer was the sixth most popular male star, Ranbir gained a spot at the ninth position.

Actors like Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana, whose popularity has grown over the years, beat him by becoming the eight and seventh most popular stars, respectively.

Varun Dhawan, last seen in Coolie No 1 opposite Sara Ali Khan in 2020, gained the tenth position in the list. The actor had Bhediya and Jug Jugg Jeeyo for release in 2022 but the releases could be delayed after the third wave scare in India.
