The Bollywood game changes every Friday. So which actors made the most of it in the year so far? We take a look.

None of the big stars have disappointed so far this year.

Of course, most of them like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Ajay Devgn and Hrithik Roshan have not even released their films yet, and will do so in the second half of the year.

So far, it's the younger actors like Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra who are shining on the marquee.

Here's looking at the Top 10 actors of the year so far.

Akshay Kumar (Holiday)

Arriving on the big screen nine months after his last release Boss, Akshay Kumar hit a solid boundary with Holiday.

After Rowdy Rathore, it was pretty much the need of the hour for the actor to score a century and he did just that.

With the promos of his upcoming film Its Entertainment looking good, and a string of movies like Baby, Gabbar, Shaukeen and Singh Is Bling lined up, we will get to see a lot of Akshay in the months to come.

No actor in the history of Indian cinema has scored a double hat-trick of centuries. Except Salman Khan.

His last film Jai Ho, however, was not quite up to the mark even though it was a certified hit.

His Eid release Kick, of course, looks fabulous.

Continuing to consolidate his position in the industry, Ranveer Singh followed up last year's blockbuster Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela with Gunday.

Even though Gunday got mixed reviews, Ranveer -- who will celebrate his birthday on July 6 -- did not disappoint.

Ranveer's Gunday co-star Arjun Kapoor did not disappoint either.

He showed a lot of promise in his earliest films Ishaqzaade and Aurangzeb but unfortunately, they didn't get him a lot of accolades.  

Gunday did that for him, followed by the romantic drama 2 States.

Today, he is one of the hottest newcomers in the industry with interesting films in his kitty.

Many wondered if Sidharth Malhotra would go beyond his chocolate boy image in his debut film Student Of The Year

His talent shone though in films like Hasee Toh Phasee and his dramatic turn in last week's release Ek Villain.

Ek Villain, in fact, shows the actor off in a way he's never been seen before.

Riteish Deshmukh has not seen a single flop in his last nine releases! 

In fact, he was the only actor, who was praised for his work in the heavily criticised film Humshakals.

The next Friday saw him change his act completely from slapstick comedy to sheer terror in Ek Villain, where he played a serial killer.

Varun Dhawan followed up the success of Student of the Year with Main Tera Hero, a solo-hero film which earned a good Rs 50 crores.

He was liked by youngsters, as he romanced the two girls in the film, Ileana D'Cruz and Nargis Fakhri.

His next film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya has positive buzz, and may be yet another hit for the actor.

What a turnaround!

When the promos of Heropanti went on air, the social media made some cruel jokes about its lead actor Tiger Shroff.

After the film's release, the debutant became a real 'Hero' as his film was well accepted.

With Bhaag Milkha Bhaag behind him, Farhan Akhtar has become a bankable star.

His acting talent was well showcased in Shaadi Ke Side Effects but some unbelievable twists and turns in the narrative killed the film's chances at being a hit.
