Akshay-Kumar

Ajay Devgn

Where: Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior

Why: Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is Ajay Devgn’s 100th Hindi film. Though the Hindi film’s politics is debatable, with a massive box office collection of over 200 crore, Tanhaji is his most profitable film ever. The 51-year-old actor, who also produced the film, brought on board filmmaker Om Raut (who made his Hindi debut) and together they created an experience that gave the Bollywood historical a fresh spin. Devgn’s enduring success as a leading man even after 30 years is what makes him disruptive.
