Salman Khan might have been one of the most loved Bollywood actors but he did not make it to top Indian actors for the month of December in 2022. The only two Bollywood actors to make it are Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan.

The list is almost the same as November. The artists are the same but their rankings have changed.

See the full list here:

Thalapathy Vijay continues to rule even this month. He is the most loved Indian actor. Prabhas also continues to be the second most loved Indian actor after Vijay.

Akshay Kumar’s popularity has dropped from third to fourth spot. This has happened after he delivered back-to-back flops in the recent times.

Meanwhile, Jr. NTR’s popularity is back since his Golden Globes speech. The actor’s film RRR’s song Naatu Naatu won an award there.

While Akshay’s popularity dropped, Shah Rukh Khan’s has risen. The actor, who is shining everywhere ahead of his movie Pathaan’s release, is the eighth most loved Indian actor. He rose up to one position from number nine thanks to all the buzz about Pathaan and his own self.

Mahesh Babu’s popularity took a huge dip. While he was on the eighth spot last month, in December he became the 10th most loved Indian actor.

Ram Charan, on the other hand, has risen up from 10 to number nine. He too was a part of SS Rajamouli’s RRR with Jr. NTR.

Allu Arjun, Yash and Ajith Kumar’s popularity for the two months remains the same. They are the fifth, sixth and seventh most loved Indian actors in the month of December, 2022.
