Bollywood's Hottest Actor at 47? VOTE!

Aamir Khan may have turned 47 yesterday but he looks as youthful as he did a decade ago.

It's hardly surprising given the fact that good looks run in this Khan family. While Aamir dominated the film scene with his chocolate boy looks in his 20s, his clean-cut strategist persona is bringing home the big bucks now through film production and a leading role every once in a while.

So the consensus indicates that Mr Perfectionist has dodged the middle age bullet.

We decided to look back at other Bollywood actors, and see what they looked like in their 47th year.

Who looked the hottest at 47? Click through the slide show and vote for your favourite at the end!

Amitabh Bachchan

The Big B may have been going through a cinematic slump in the 1980s but his baritone voice and the famous superstar aura were in place.

The actor, then 47, gazes right at you in a still from his 1989 film Jaadugar.

Time seems to have stopped for this Bollywood veteran.

While daughter Sonam Kapoor is working designer clothes and glaming up fashion shows, the actor is still showing us his potential as an actor.

He looked dapper in Nikhil Advani's 2007 love saga Salaam-e-Ishq. Does he look 47? We'd say he looked much younger if we didn't know.

Sanjay Dutt probably won't forget his 47th year. Nor will we.

The actor gave the biggest hit of his career in 2003 with Rajkumar Hirani's Munnabhai MBBS. Guess the Jaadu Ki Jhappi worked its magic on him too.

Anna for his industry friends, Suniel Shetty does have that big brother air about him.

One of the first brawny actors that we saw on screen, Suniel Shetty was fitter at 47 than his much younger costars in Mission Istanbul in 2008.

Jeetendra

Jeetendra was at his flambouyant best in the 1980s. So when Aasman Se Ooncha came along in 1989, Jeetendra didn't shy away from donning his famous all-white attire.

He played don King Kishan in the film and completely overshadowed costar Raj Babbar (right), who is a decade younger than him.

Sunny Deol

Sunny Deol personified brawn like no one else for the longest time in Hindi films.

While his commoner-turned-vigilante roles contributed to his popularity, the actor worked with actresses more than 20 years junior to him.

We could hardly tell the age gap when he starred with Priyanka Chopra in The Hero: Love Story Of A Spy in 2003, at 47.

One of the most good looking actors in Bollywood, Vinod Khanna cuts a dapper picture even now.

When he starred alongside Dharmendra and much younger actors Sanjay Dutt and Sunny Deol in the 1993 film Kshatriya, he held his own.

Known as the thinking woman's sex symbol early on in his career, Dharmendra has had one of the most enviable and fit bodies in the industry.

He cut a handsome picture at 47 in 1983's Qayamat.

Jackie Shroff

Jackie Shroff put up a mindblowing show as a ganglord in last year's Tamil film Aaranya Kaandam and even did a nude scene in the film.

The actor hasn't lost his youthful charm, as was evident in his 2008 Halla Bol.

Pran

One of the earliest villians in Hindi films, Pran portrayed sophisticated yet wayward men with evil designs with much aplomb.

His negative turn in Ram Aur Shyam was no different, which he did at the age of 47.
