Here's finding out the real age of Bollywood's youthful lot.

S
howbiz is all about appearances. And it is a star's responsibility to look young and attractive at all times.

After some point, they become pros at defying age and it's hard to tell how old they really are. 

Everyone knows about the constantly-in-news Khans and Kumar in detail but are you certain all your other favourites are as old (or young) as you think?

Here's finding out the real age of Bollywood's youthful lot.

John Abraham

DOB: December 17, 1972

As one of Bollywood's most dashing hunks who's been in the movies for nearly a decade, JA continues to make a newish impression.

Believe it or not, the sexy star-turned-producer (Vicky Donor) will turn 40 this year. Maybe it's that face wash he endorses?

DOB: February 25, 1981

He started out modeling as a child actor but Shahid Kapoor's boyish features make it hard for the 31-year-old to pass off as anything except a college kid.

Remember that ridiculous moustached look in Mausam?

DOB: September 28, 1982

There's something rather pliable about Ranbir Kapoor's demeanor.

The Rockstar is 29 but can easily pass off as both -- 20 or 30 because of his ability to mold himself into the mindset of any age group.

DOB: January 13, 1983

With his bright, fair, flawless complexion and babyish face, Imran Khan could easily pass off as a preppie school boy.

But the 29-year-old, happily-married nephew of superstar Aamir Khan is enjoying the last leg of his 20s participating in frothy rom-coms like Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu.

DOB: May 18, 1980

His Mere Brother Ki Dulhan co-star Ali Zafar, too, is blessed with a chocolate face that makes him a rage among the teenybopper crowd.

But did you know that the Lahore-based star is 31 already?

DOB: July 6, 1985

Ranveer Singh won many hearts with his spontaneous, uninhibited act as a good-for-nothing college kid turned shrewd wedding planner in Band Baaja Baarat.

And he's merely 26.

Abhay Deol

DOB: March 15, 1976

The suave, self-styled cousin of Deol brothers -- Sunny and Bobby, looks much younger than you'd imagine. 

Whether it's his effortlessly good skin or dimpled smile but something about the Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara actor insists he cannot be 36 just yet.

His co-stars from film -- Farhan Akhtar and Hrithik Roshan, however, make for a dynamic albeit convincing 38-year-old.

Abhishek Bachchan

DOB: February 5, 1976

Like Abhay, Abhishek Bachchan's 36 too.

Only the latter began his career five years earlier with Refugee lending him an air of seniority.

Also, Bachchan's constant stubble tends to age him slightly, don't you agree?

Emraan Hashmi

DOB: March 24, 1979

Maybe it's the adult nature of his roles that compel viewers to believe Emraan Hashmi is old and experienced.

To think Bollywood's Serial Kisser will celebrate his 33rd birthday in a few days.

DOB: March 17, 1979

Think Sharman Joshi. Think college.

Be it Rang De Basanti or 3 Idiots, Joshi is always lurking in and around campus.

Who would have thought he's 33 already?

His next Ferrari Ki Sawaari will finally witness him grow up as a solo hero and reel-life daddy to a precocious boy.
