In the glamour field of Bollywood, good looks play a very important role. Right from the time when a young actor is noticed; his good looks play an important decisive in his being selected for a high stake movie and the lack of it can be a detriment to a newcomer. It is only later that the actor’s screen presence and acting talents and ability to emote make him a star. The height of a Bollywood star can be a delicate subject. Previously, it didn’t matter about the height of the lead actor, but with more global exposure, taller leading ladies and increased association of height with good looks, it has now became a consideration.

Fortunately, height is something most stars can fake and with the help of height friendly methods like a false heel insert inside specially customized shoes, a greater height can be achieved. So, photographs as well as movies can mislead one to their actual heights! Interestingly, the top leading stars of today are a mixture of tall and not so tall stars. If we take 1.68m or 5 feet 5 inches to be the average male height of Indians, then the actors who are more than that height can be said to be tall, by Indian standards.
