Bollywood's Most Dashing Soldier? VOTE!

Last updated on: February 06, 2018 12:19 IST

Will Sidharth Malhotra top your list?

Nothing cuts a dashing picture like our leading men in military uniform.

While we keenly wait to see Sidharth Malhotra in Aiyaary, Sukanya Verma lists some of our favourite men in military fatigues.

 

Sidharth Malhotra, Aiyaary

After dabbling as a hit man (Ek Villain), a boxer (Brothers) and a spy (A Gentleman), Karan Johar's discovery is all set to flex his muscles as an army officer skilled in the art of changing disguises.

 

John Abraham, Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran

John Abraham, Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran

In his upcoming film -- based on the May 1998 nuclear tests in Pokhran, Rajasthan -- the actor plays an armyman at the centre of things.

Given John's strapping physicality, he sure looks the part.

 

Shah Rukh Khan, Jab Tak Hai Jaan

Shah Rukh Khan, Jab Tak Hai Jaan

What a treat to watch the original fauji flaunt his military swagger in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

 

Akshay Kumar, Holiday

Akshay Kumar, Holiday

From Sainik to Holiday, the khiladi star's penchant for gallant daredevilry is well documented.

We do love his commitment for socially relevant cinema just as much.

 

Hrithik Roshan, Lakshya

Hrithik Roshan, Lakshya

Whether he's playing a superhero or soldier, one can count on Hrithik to look his dapper best.

The actor chopped off his golden locks to sport a spiffy crew cut in Farhan Akhtar's coming-of-age tale.

 

R Madhavan, Sikandar

R Madhavan, Sikandar

Know the secret to Madhavan's super authentic appeal in army attire?

The former NCC cadet wanted to become an air force pilot.

 

Shahid Kapoor, Rangoon

Shahid Kapoor, Rangoon

It's not just regal robes for Padmaavat's leading man, but Shahid is equally swashbuckling as the spirited soldier in Vishal Bhardwaj's pre-Independence war drama.

 

Vidyut Jamwal, Commando

Vidyut Jamwal, Commando

There's little sense or subtlety in Commando.

And the burly Vidyut Jamwal plays up its all style no substance sensibilities like a true blue Bollywood action hero.

 

Jimmy Shergill, Yahaan

Jimmy Shergill, Yahaan

Before becoming Bollywood's most sought director and the man behind acclaimed fare like Vicky Donor, Madras Cafe and Piku, Shoojit Sircar served up a gentle romance between an Indian army officer and Kashmiri girl in Yahaan.

Jimmy Shergill is both effective and attractive in his portrayal.

 

Sunny Deol, Border

Sunny Deol, Border

With his bombastic heroics and macho vigour, Sunny's Major Kuldip Singh is tailor-made to lead a battalion in J P Dutta's recreation of the Battle of Longewala.

It must be said he does not disappoint one bit.

 

VOTE: WHO LOOKS BEST IN UNIFORM?

Sukanya Verma
