Arjun-Ranveer, Saif, Shah Rukh: Bollywood's COOLEST Gunday? VOTE!

With the surge of comedy and romance films, the action genre had taken a backseat in Bollywood for a while.

While Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar have managed to bring it back with consecutive hits and Anurag Kashyap reinvented action films with his slick direction, more filmmakers are jumping in the fray.

And when action films are back, will onscreen gundas be far behind?

Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh will take the legacy forward with their titular characters in Ali Abbas Zafar's upcoming film, Gunday. Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor will also be seen in similar characters in their respective nexts, Bullett Raja and R...Rajkumar

But who among all of them, from now and then, are the coolest according to you? Click through the slide show and VOTE for your favourite at the end!

Saif Ali Khan, Bullett Raja

In actor-director Tigmanshu Dhulia's new film, Saif plays the fiery and trigger-happy Raja Mishra.

Raja has tons of swagger and (we're hoping) dialogues as cool as the film's tagline 'Aayenge to garmi badhayenge.'

Shahid Kapoor, R... Rajkumar

After his last three films bombed at the box office, Shahid Kapoor has now enrolled in Prabhu Dheva's school of filmmaking with R... Rajkumar, presumably hoping that the latter's success will rub off on him.

Paired opposite Rowdy Rathore actress Sonakshi Sinha, Shahid plays the titular character, who works for a drug baron.


Akshay Kumar, Rowdy Rathore

The name's Rathore, Rowdy Rathore.

As if the self-explanatory title wasn't enough, Rathore's clothes, body language, occupation and even his way of romancing his lady love screamed gunda.

Sanjay Dutt, Munnabhai MBBS

Sanjay Dutt's immensely entertaining turn as the well-meaning rogue in Rajkumar Hirani's directorial debut gave a much-needed boost to his waning acting career.

Dutt's Murli Prasad Sharma aka Munna is arguably one of the most lovable gundas we've ever seen in Hindi films.

Arshad Warsi, Zila Ghaziabad

Though Arshad Warsi was fabulous as Circuit in the Munnabhai series, his earnest attempt as a small-time gangster Fauji in Zila Ghaziabad failed to impress.

Pegged as a political action thriller based on a real life incident, Zila Ghaziabad was marred by poor writing and lack of focus.

Jimmy Shergill, Tanu Weds Manu

Jimmy Shergill's totally unexpected entry in the slow-paced and one-sided love story of Tanu and Manu brings more colour in the film.

Shergill's Raja is comically intimidating.

Salman Khan, Tere Naam

Salman Khan's Radhe is an exceedingly irreverent and effortlessly hilarious goon who spends his time with hangers-on around his alma mater and rags new students.

His transformation from a carefree youngster to an obsessive lover was the film's highlight.

Shah Rukh Khan, Josh

Shah Rukh's onscreen gunda turn in Josh wasn't appreciated as much as he would've liked.

As the leader of a local gang called Eagles, SRK's Max's life is all about one-upping his arch nemesis Prakash, who leads the rival gang Bichchoo.
