@Figo, I'll give her 5'7.5" MAX. Yes she is broad and like Nona said, weighs a good amount. But I would not be including her in any discussion of the tallest actresses!

Look at her with 5'7 Bipasha Basu:

@figo: Yes Sonakshi is an amazon but not in height. As Dost mentions she is only about 5'7" but has an amazonian build with huge shoulders and big hips. She weighs in the region of 75 kgs which is big for a girl her height
Figo says on 20/Aug/14
Sonakshi is not 5.7 she is taller and dont forget she is very broad
Dost says on 18/Aug/14
Sonakshi is only about 5'7
hd says on 18/Aug/14
even Lara dutta is dwarfed by yukta mookhey Click Here
Figo says on 18/Aug/14
Nobody is discussing about sonakshi sinha she is also an amazon
friend says on 17/Aug/14
If you watch the video posted by short_aish closely, i observed few things when they were to stand closely, Aish called yukta behind near the steps... they walk to-ogether and Aish is just touches her shoulder.even standing on step aish is barely seen
Figo says on 17/Aug/14
Pooja batra is taller than sushmita sen
Nona says on 16/Aug/14
@krish: I agree with dost on the heights of shilpa shetty & karminder Kaur. As far as their weights go I would put shilpa's current weight at 68 kgs. Haven't seen karminder of late but during the Ms India contest she easily weighed around 75 kgs
Figo says on 15/Aug/14
Why is eveyone on this site estimating aishwarya to be short.she is 5.7 if she stands in a crowd she would be taller than seven out of ten guys
Alig says on 15/Aug/14
Awesome video short_aish....awesome comparison b/w yukta and priyanka at the end
Dost says on 15/Aug/14
Look at Pooja Batra stand eye to eye with the 5'11 (?) Mithun: Click Here

She has flats or barefoot throughout the song and Mithun is in 1" heels and they look the same!
Dost says on 15/Aug/14
My guesses are:

Shilpa Shetty: 5'8
Karminder Kaur: 5'10.5
Pooja Batra: 5'10.5
Yukta: 5'11.5 to 6'0

@dost-Thanks for pic of Karminder Kaur and Shilpa Shetty. The difference in height is impressive there. What would be your estimate of their respective heights?
@nona- can you please give us your estimate of Karminder and Shilpa's respective height and weight please?
Dost says on 14/Aug/14
She's definitely more than 5'10. I think she's 5'11 to 6'0, despite what she may say.
Enginner says on 14/Aug/14
Nice video on Yukta Mookhey. She reveals her heights as somewhere between 5'10" and 5'11".
nona says on 14/Aug/14
@short_aish: How do you know the girl near Yukta is Aishwarya, it could be Diya Mirza also. Anyways there is atleast 8" difference in that pic between Yukta and the other girl. Yukta infact towers over most Ms. India winners including Sushmita who at 5'9" is the tallest.
Figo says on 13/Aug/14
Does anybody has yukta mookheys picture with amitabh bachchan,it would be interesting to compare them
short_aish says on 13/Aug/14

just look at short aish is looking in front of yukta...yukta can easily lift her like a baby..
Dost says on 13/Aug/14
Tried to post this before.

Karminder with Shilpa Shetty in Prithvi: Click Here

I think she's about 5'10 to 5'11. Saw her in a pic with Pooja Batra at Miss India 1993 and they were pretty much the same height.
Figo says on 11/Aug/14
Karminder kaur used to come on a serial on dd metro which had puneet issar,shahbaz khan,hemant birje and other tall well built guys and believe me she looked as big as those guys
nona says on 11/Aug/14
@figo: Karminder Kaur sort of disappeared after the Ms. India. She is 5'11" and along with Pooja Batra who is 6'0" dwarfed the winner Namrata Shirodkar who stands 5'6". One more thing about Karminder is that she was a basketballer and as such was very well built with long strong legs. She easily weighed about 72 kgs during the Ms. India contest.
Figo says on 11/Aug/14
Sonam kapoors suster rhea is also very tall
short_aish says on 8/Aug/14
aishwarya is looking very tiny in front of women in pink dress...may be that is because of camera angle...but does anyone has photo of this??
Figo says on 7/Aug/14
Where is karminder kaur?she dwarfed sunil shetty in shastra
Figo says on 6/Aug/14
There was an acrtress named pooja madan who used to appear in zee serial amanat.she was quite tall and stocky
nona says on 6/Aug/14
@figo: Jwala Gutta (6'0", 83 kgs), Krishna Poonia (6'1", 85 kgs) & Seema Punia (6'1", 94 kgs) were 3 of the tallest & biggest women in India's Commonwealth Games team. They are not only taller and heavier than all other female athletes but also 80% of the male athletes. Seema Punia & krishna Poonia are discus throwers and need to be big and strong but Jwala being a badminton player is huge and considering her size she moves very well on court. Her partner Ashwini at only 5'6" & 60 kgs looks like a small kid nest to Jwala
nona says on 5/Aug/14
@fcb: Thanks for the comparison video. Only proves that Yukta is by far the tallest and heaviest actress ever to grace Bollywood. She is easily 6'1" and going by that video should be about 85 kgs
Figo says on 5/Aug/14
There was a photo today in newsapaper in which jwala gutta stood alongsides other medalist.and my my jwala totally dwarfed everyone else

nona says on 4/Aug/14
@Figo: Rakshanda Khan is 5'8", which is tall but nowhere near Yukta (6'1") or Karishma Tanna (5'11"). Rakshanda is also very well built with nice broad shoulders and wide hips and easily weighs close to 75 kgs.
Krish says on 4/Aug/14
Usha Bachani is a tall woman. Maybe 5'8 or above. In a scene in Dulhan Hum Lejayenge, she slaps Karishma sending the latter tumbling down and later on, when Karishma tries to slap her, Bachani barely blinks and this prompts the puny Karishma to run away. The height difference between them is easily around 4 inches or more.
JV says on 3/Aug/14
In Kyonki saas bhi kabhi bahu thi, Smriti irani 5'8. Gauri looked taller than her(5'9). Rakshanda khan(5'9.5) taller than Gauri Pradhan & Karishma tanna(5'11) taller than Rakshanda Khan

Another tall woman is usha bachani who appears as a vamp in movies and tv dulhan hum le jayenge,karishma and salman looked like small kids infront of her
Figo says on 1/Aug/14
Does anybody knows priyanka gandhis height.she looks very tall
Dost says on 31/Jul/14
I think I said this earlier, but speaking of tall actresses in serials, check out Shireen Mirza in "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein". She stars as Simmi and is very tall. Looks to be about 5'10 in flats easily!
Figo says on 31/Jul/14
She appeared in few episodes opposite r madhavan.she played the role of manoj pahwas daughter whose name was bhamra in the serial.she would be around 6.2 in height.honestly she would dwarf yukta and karishma tanna easily
Krish says on 30/Jul/14
@Figo- Rakshanda Khan was the actress. It was practically at the time of her debut. A young Nikki Aneja was the other actress. However, Rakshanda isn't that tall by today's standards. She was leaner back then and looked quite tall by the standards of the 90s. She would have been taller than the likes of Raveena, Mamta, Kajol or Karishma and maybe as tall as Shilpa or Sonali Bendre but shorter than the likes of Tabu, Sushmita, Kunika or Pooka Batra back then. I guess she is at around 5'7.5 which is still quite tall for an Indian actress. But definitely nowhere near Yukhta's height.
rahul says on 30/Jul/14
Figo was she regular or just appeared in only few episode
Figo says on 29/Jul/14
I searched everywhere but that link is not available.someone must have known about that actress.i am sure she would dwarf yukta mookhey easily
sreenu says on 28/Jul/14
mr.figo@ can u plz provide the link of that serial
Figo says on 27/Jul/14
I searched everywhere but i still cant find the name of tall actress in sea hawks.any body knows about her?

Any body has seen tv series sea hawks which used to come on dd metro.the actress who starred opppsite r madhavan was so tall.can anybody name her?i bet she is the tallest ever actress seen on indian television

@Figo Rekha Sahay was a tall godess. I remember her in Circus and few other serials where she towered over all male costars

Guys, Anu is 5'8.5" and weighs 53 kgs whereas as Kat is 5'9" & weighs 68 kgs. Both are extremely beautiful in their own ways. Anu has a more boyish figure with no waist:hip defnition and stick like legs wheras Kat is extremely curvy with a tiny waist, huge hips and thick legs
Dost says on 5/Jul/14
It's confusing because we can't see the bottom half of their torso, what footwear they are wearing (both seemed to switch shoes sometime during this event) or where they are standing.

The conclusive pics are the ones I posted and the first one by Subha which show their full body...

Katrina is marginally taller, I actually don't think it's even 1/2 inch.
Subha says on 4/Jul/14
Those pictures are from same event, its confusing

abhishek says on 3/Jul/14
see this pic...both are in flats and looks about the same height
Click Here
nona says on 1/Jul/14
@Dost: Your pics are clinching evidence that Katrina is taller than Anushka by atleast 0.5". I would put Anushka at 5'8.5" & Katrina at 5'9". The other very noticable thing from your pis is how thin Anushka is compared to Katrina. Anushka's legs are half the size of katrina's
Bablu says on 1/Jul/14
Shireen Mirza from the serial "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" is very tall. Comparing her with the stars of the show, who also appeared alongside Bollywood actor Siddharth Malhotra, I would estimate Shireen to be in the 5'10 to 5'11 range.
Ricky says on 1/Jul/14
@Riya. Where's your observation about bollywood actors?. Specially for salman khan.
Dost says on 27/Jun/14
@Riya...Anushka taller than Katrina, I dunno about that:

Anushka's heels are bigger than Kats yet she appears slightly shorter: Click Here

Same day when they both had flats on: Click Here
Riya says on 26/Jun/14
I'm 5'9" myself, and I've actually met a lot of Bollywood celebs. This is what I concluded from my observations:
Aish-5'7" (like the article states)
Kareena: 5'6" (I was suprised-always thought she'd be taller)
Bipasha: 5'7.5"
Priyanka: 5'6" (she was wearing about 3" heals and was the same height as me)
Lara: 5'8"
Katrina: 5'8.5"
Vidya: 5'3.5-5'4" (her shoes were flat, but not completely flat)
Kangana: 5'7"
Sonam: 5'10"
Deepika: 5'9"
Anushka: 5'9.5" (she said she's shorter than Kat, but I doubt it-considering she was slightly taller than me.)
Jacqueline: 5'8"
Shruti: 5'8"
Shraddha: 5'6"
Sonakshi: 5'8"
Ileana-5'6.5" (I always thought she'd be taller around 5'9", but everyone said she's petite at only about 5'4", but I'd say she's more near the middle considering she was about the same height as me in about 2" heels.)
Parineeti: 5'7" (I was actaully shocked! She always looked so petite to me, but she was quite tall in real.)
Diana: 5'10" (was easily an inch taller than me)
Vaani: 5'7.5" (was just teensy bit taller than Parineeti)
Alia: 5'5" (Again, I was shocked. She looks only about 5'1" or 5'2", but she's actually above average height.)
Kriti: 5'9" (Saw her from far-she looked only an inch shorter than Tiger who's apparently 5'10".)
Deeksha-5'8.5" (just met last week btw!!)
Dost says on 23/Jun/14
@ghangas: great find. They are both in no heels and that woman looks at least an inch taller than Katrina. I think she must be around 5'10...
ghangas says on 21/Jun/14
just how tall is this woman!!

Dost says on 19/Jun/14
Malaika looks way shorter than Deepika. The woman who looks close to Deepika appears to be Kalki Koechlin. I think Kalki must be about 5'6 to 5'7, she was shorter than Katrina Kaif in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
aparash says on 18/Jun/14
Didnt know Malaika was as tall as deepika! In IIFA Click Here she looks as tall as DP. Nothing can be said about the footwear though..

@aparash: That girl is Namita the actress from the South Film Industry. She is not very tall at 5'8" but she is absolutely huge and weighs more than 90 kgs with massive shoulders, arms and legs. Another girl from the South Film Industry who is worth checking out is Anushka Shetty who is 5'10" & weighs close to 78 kgs

Guys any idea of as to Alia Bhatt's height and weight? She is listed at 5'6" & 54 Kgs but appears to be only about 5'2". Her weight though seems correct.

nona says on 21/May/14
Quote from Sonakshi Sinha in an interview "I am 5'8" tall and have a very healthy Indian frame". Agree with the healthy frame bit but the height is a false claim. She is at most 5'6" but weighs in at a massive 75 kgs with huge shoulders and broad hips.
Ricky says on 20/May/14
I agree...she is 169 cm...because shahrukh 170 cm(5'6.75)
tiny says on 19/May/14
Agree with Aparash & Dost that Kriti Sanon is 5'10". She is as tall as Diana Penty but is much more healthy and weighs about 70 kgs compared to Diana's 50 kgs
Dost says on 18/May/14
She seems slightly taller than Katrina Kaif if you take into account pics of Kat and Aamir. The 5'10" sounds about right, taking her to the top of the current crop of actresses along with Diana Penty.

@zig.zag: agree with you on Amrita Rao, she is really tiny but very cute. Regarding the strongest though Sameera is up there, I think she is no match against the likes of Sonakshi (5'6", 75 kgs) and Huma Quereshi (5'8", 80 kgs)

nona says on 5/May/14
@John: U are right about Namitha being shorter than Anushka Shetty. Namitha is 5'8" whereas Anushka is 5'10". Moreover because of Namitha's bulk (she weighs close to 90 kgs) she looks even shorter compared to the perfectly built Anushka (weighs 75 kgs)
John says on 3/May/14
@ss- Namitha is probably 5'8 to 5'8.5 at best. She is shorter than Anushka Shetty in Billa. Watch this pic from an event, for e.g:

Click Here
nona says on 3/May/14
@ss: I think that Anushka Shetty (5'10", 78 kgs)is the strongest as apart from being tall and well built she is a yoga teacher and knows how to channelise her strength. Sameera (5'7", 70 kgs) is a close second as she has broad shoulders and thick muscular arms. Deepika (5.8", 65 kgs) as you say is surprisingly strong for her thin frame. Another girl who has to be very strong is Katrina kaif (5'9", 72 kgs) as she has a very strong lower body with amazingly muscular legs as you can see in Dhoom 3

talking about the strength in Bollywood actress ...
sameera reddy is probably the strongest...having muscular arms and compact body(she lifted krk effortlessly in bigboss)..followed by deepika as she belongs to the sports background..(lifted imran khan in movie)..
then actress from south like anushka shetty (lifted prabhas, ravi teza)

anushka shetty- 5'9.5"
namitha- 5'10"

Thanks Alig, Tabu looks just as tall as Ruby but hard to see from the camera angle.

Sid - That is a bad picture, there are others out there where the two look the same height, if you subtract the huge mound of hair sitting on top of Deepika's head.

@ss - agreed, Lisa claims 5'9 and in "Aisha" she was head-to-head with Sonam Kapoor and at times, looked slightly taller!
nona says on 26/Apr/14
Guys, what are your thoughts on Alia Bhatt the current big ticket girl in Bollywood. She is listed at 5'6" & 55 kgs but looks very compact and dainty to be so tall and heavy. She looks only abotu 5'2" & 45 kgs....what are your views??
ss says on 26/Apr/14
lisa hayden is another tall the upcoming movie of akshay kumaar called shaukin.....she stands more than 5'10"...& looks even taller than akshay in most of the cases...
nona says on 26/Apr/14
There is a pic of Priyanka Chopra together with Sonakshi Sinha in todays paper and Sonakshi looks to be about 3" taller than Priyanka. Now either Priyanka is much shorter than her claimed 5'6" or Sonakshi is much taller than her listed 5'6". My judgement says Priyanka is only 5'4" & Sonakshi is 5'7". This coupled with the fact that Priyanka is tiny at 53 kgs compared to Sonakshi's 70 kgs makes Priyanka look like a small schoolgirl
aparash says on 25/Apr/14

There is a interesting video where yukta bends down so that aish could be seen,if any one can search the video.... thanks
nona says on 24/Apr/14
@aparash: Yukta claiming to be only 5'11" is understandable cos there is no place for girl who is a 6 footer in Bollywood. There is a pic of Yukta in flats with Sushmita Sen who is 5'8" and in 4" heels and Yukta is taller than Sushmita by a couple of inches. I still feel Yukta is atleast 6'1" if not more.
aparash says on 23/Apr/14
i saw her Miss India contest and her final show back in 99 and she herself claimed to be 5'11".
nona says on 23/Apr/14
@aparash: Agree with you that there is none taller than Yukta but she is defnitely more than the 5'11" you have mentioned. Looking at the pics in your link i would put her more at 6'1". She is easily 6" taller than the 5'8" Achala Sachdev, atleast 1" taller than the 6'0" Purab Kohli and about 11" taller than the 5'2" Bhagyashree. There is also a pic of her with Sohail Khan where he is standing on a higher step but is just about 2" taller than Yukta. Yukta is a true amazon as she is not only tall but also huge and weighs close to 88 kgs
nona says on 22/Apr/14
Rob: Request you to put up a dedicated page for Katrina Kaif as she is also tall (5'9") and we seem to discuss a lot about her in pages dedicated to other Indian actresses

Dost says on 20/Apr/14
Lakshmi is 5'8 indeed but I think Karishma is more like 5'9...we can't see any footwear in that pic. It's very possible Karishma is in huge heels and Lakshmi isn't. She is still taller but not by 3".

Seen Karishma with Anushka Sharma, Bruna, etc. She is slightly taller than them but does not tower over them like a Pooja Batra, Yukta Mookhey.
nona says on 19/Apr/14
@ara: Lakshmi Rai is tall at 5'8" but Karishma Tanna is closer to 5'11" and thats why towers over Lakshmi Rai.Nice pics of Karishma, she has put on weight at the right places and looks good. I guess she weighs close to 70 kgs now which is great for her height.

I have a friend who is 5'8" and weighs 75 kgs. She is very big made with broad shoulders and looks huge when compared to the other girls in India. Recently she got a job in the Netherlands and now she doesnt want to come back to India. When asked she said that most girls there are as tall or taller than her and also very well built and as such she feels normal there. Further fiding clothes & footwear to fit her are quite easy.
Dost says on 13/Apr/14
Great discussion!

Ruby does indeed look taller than Sushmita by an inch. Definitely think she is 5'9! She is an inch or two shorter than Pooja Batra here: Click Here

A little taller than Shilpa Shetty: Click Here

Taller than Sonali Bendre: Click Here

@john here is rubi bhatia with sushmita Click Here
John says on 12/Apr/14
Rubi Bhatia is a tall woman. Saw her alongside Shilpa Shetty and then Raveena at an awards event she was hosting and she was very obviously taller than both of them. She looked slightly shorter than Pooja Batra there who is one of the tallest ones around. I saw her in a tv series and she also was slightly taller than Usha Bachani there. And Usha Bachani is a tall woman herself. Watch her in 'Dulhan Hum Lejayenge' and she looked like 4 or 5 inches taller than Karishma Kapoor. And then Ruby herself looked like she had at least 3 inches on Kareena in 'Main Prem Ki Deewani Houn'.

My guess on these actresses:

Pooja Batra -5'11
Ruby Bhatia- 5'9
Usha Bachani- 5'8
Shilpa- 5'7.5
Kareena- 5'6
Raveena- 5'6
Karishma- 5'4
Madhuri- 5'3

It does seem that Ruby hosted Sushmita and Tabu in other episodes of the show aaa posted here. It would be great if anyone could come up with links of these episodes here.

look how short madhuri is looking in front of rubi bhatia...
nona says on 5/Apr/14
Its great to hear that Pooja batra has an upcoming release. That would defnitely make her the tallest active Indian actress as you say, no argumnets on that. As far as Yukta goes she was never really accepted by the industry and that is partly due to how tall and huge she is. She was not only taller than most actors but weighed much more than them and am sure most of the heros found her difficult to maneouvre during dance scenes. If it was only her height she would have been successful but her broad build has been her undoing.
Bablu says on 4/Apr/14
Pooja has not retired and is still very much active. She has an upcoming Hollywood/Bollywood release coming up. She probably isn't getting any traditional offers but if the right one came along, she would take it. Yukta was never really an actress in my book.
nona says on 2/Apr/14
@Bablu: Pooja Batra doesnt act anymore nor does Yukta Mookhey so they should not be considered. Taking even regional actresses into consideration I think the tallest actress is Anushka Shetty (Telugu & Tamil) who is 5'10" is the tallest actress. She is not only tall but extremely well built (weight - 75 kgs) with nice wide hips and broad shoulders. She makes all the others you have mentioned except katrina look like school kids
Bablu says on 31/Mar/14
The tallest mainstream actress is Pooja Batra at 5'11". She is taller than everyone currently in the industry including:

Diana Penty (5'9.5")

mj11:Average in India is 5'5 maybe 5'5.5-6 for Young males.Probably 5' or 5'1 for women.At 5'11 You are more likely in the 95% among youngsters and your wife is more likely in the 98%.At 5'8 a girl will be within 90%in U.S rather than India,though I'm sure you can have huge variations in height in a country like India having extremely large gaps in life standards.

Gauri Tonk looks seriously tall, dint know she was that tall. She is more 5'9" like Dost mentioned and very attractive and well built too at close to 65 kgs
dost says on 26/Mar/14
Thanks engineer for that video, if u watch the video closely @4.42 there are k tanna & Gouri Tonk together and she is taller than Gauri Tonk who is a very tall lady close to 5-9

@dost: even I think katrina is about half an inch taller than anushka sharma. It's only anushka's ultra slim body type that makes her look as tall specially since katrina is quite voluptuous with real hips and thick strong legs. Check out her legs in dhoom 3, they look so toned and muscular. I guess katrina weighs about 70 kgs compared to Anushka who is only abt 50 kgs
engineer says on 24/Mar/14
Interesting video, Karishma tanna in flats when she stands next to Hussain, she is early as tall.

@PKB: Thanks for the pic. There is easily about 6" difference between the 2 sisters in that pic. So if Mruga is 6'1" then saniya is easily 6'7". Also nice to see that they are not only tall but very healthy. I guess Mruga weighs close to 72 kgs and Saniya about 85 kgs

@Dost: Saniya Kulkarni should be anywhere between 6'5" & 6'7" and as you rightly put it nowhere is her height properly mentioned. I read that when Mruga was born she was 21" and when Saniya was born she was 26". Guess that 5" difference at birth has remained the same or increased as Saniya has grown older.
dost says on 17/Mar/14
@nona i agree with you that Mruga Kulkarni @ 6.1 is shortest in fly, the height of sania is not properly given, her mother is 6.3 or 6.4 and sanya towers her even if you see picts of them mruga wears heels when standing next to Sania but does fall too short...

Nargis is 5'9" & listed at 50 kgs which is quite ridiculous. She is much bigger than the 5'4", 56 kg Ileana D'Cruz and should easily weigh close to 60 kgs

Agree with Dost. Nargis is in about 6" heels in that video and that would make her about 6'3" and she absolutely dwarfs Ileana who is about 5'8" in her heels.

@shilps - Nargis is tall but in that video, she is in massive heels.

The tallest couple in India are Sharad & Sanjot Kulkarni who are 7'2" & 6'3" respectively. Their elder daughter Mruga who is 24 yrs old is 6'1" and is a model. She has been a participant in Channel V's "Get Gorgeous" show. The interesting thing is that their younger daughter Saniya is 18 yrs old and is 6'6". Imagine the plight of the older daughter cos at 6'1" she is the shortest in the family and is even shorter than her mother and is absolutely dwarfed by her younger sister.
Dost says on 27/Feb/14
@Ali, the tall one is 6'1 Reha Sukheja.

Another tall & well built Shetty girl has entered movies and she is Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya Shetty. She is about 5'9" & 68 kgs and is taller and bigger than the 5'8" & 65 kg Shilpa Shetty but is shorter & lighter than the 5'10" & 75 kg Anushka Shetty. Guess the Bunt community has the tallest women in India and even the Sikhs are shorter than them.

Ileana D'Cruz has got a smoking hot body. Just check out her tiny waist which flare out into nice wide hips. An incredible waist to hip ratio she has and at her height of 5'5" she carries it very well and weighs about 60 kgs

@tinu and @nona- Bipsaha is taller than Kareena. In the movie 'Ajnabee', Bipasha was taller than Kareena in every frame they shared together. Taller and fitter as well. Bips also looked taller than Kareena in other events pics. My guess is:
Kareena- 5'6
Bipasha- 5'7

Yeah Nargis is abt half an inch taller than the rest and looks it too cos she towers over most people who interview her. Also she reminds me a lot of Katrina Kaif specially with her accent. The only difference is katrina is a lot more curvier and weighs baout 70 kgs compared to Nargi Fakhri's 58 kgs
Dost says on 11/Feb/14
Thanks Alig for that clip. I posted pictures from that event earlier, but your clip does seem to confirm that Nargis is slightly taller...
Dost says on 10/Feb/14
Hey guys, I've been carefully looking at pics of actresses with actors and comparing them with each other to try and put them in order. My unconfirmed analysis seems to suggest that Nargis Fakhri is taller than Katrina, Anushka, Sonam, Deepika...I think she is 5'9 and the rest are around 5'8.5.
Dost says on 10/Feb/14
@fan, if you watch the song "Second Hand Jawani" at the end of the movie, Diana is visibly taller than Deepika by at least 1".
xyz123 says on 9/Feb/14
@mj11 not all but i think some of them are right about their height as they claimed,for example KK Menon he claims to be 5'11" and he is in reality(don't know much about shahrukh khan)
but most of the people actually add 2 to 3inch+ to their actual height..
In Miss India competition according to eligibility criteria your height must be atleast 5'6. If that was true how come actresses like diya mirza , priyanka chopra ,juhi chawla and were part of this competition ? Moreover in sports as well , i don't know much about this, but i don't think Sania mirza is 5ft 8..and if she is she must have looked taller than sonakshi sinha instead of 1 inch shorter who is 5'6 in actual..

Anushka is 5.10 for sure!she was taller than srk in rnbk
Dost says on 7/Feb/14
Agree with mj11, can't go by what someone claims! Anushka says she is 5'9, but Dipannita Sharma also says she is 5'9 and everyone seems to say that Dipannita was slightly taller than Anushka in Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl. Anushka is not 5'9, she is a tad over 5'8 and so are the likes of Deepika, Katrina, Sonam, Nargis, etc. Diana Penty is between 5'9 and 5'10. Karishma Tanna is around 5'9.

Anyone know how tall Bruna Abdullah is?
mj11 says on 6/Feb/14
@hhh Thanks for letting me know ...anushka is 5'9 as she claimed and so srk is 5'9 as well..well you know what sonam kapoor claims to be 5'10.5..sunil shetty once said in his interview that he is 6'1 and so on for the claiming..if these results are true..then really you are quite right hhh
hhh says on 3/Feb/14
@Mj11 all your observations are wrong. Go get your facts right. BTW Anushka herself claimed to be 5'9. So that means shahrukh is also 5'9 but you have listed him as 5'6. Totaly wrong observations and your proofs
nona says on 3/Feb/14
Was watching the Star Guild awards yesterday and must say Sonakshi has piled on the pounds. It is either that or it was her clothes. Also surprised at how much weight Kareena has put on specially around her mid section. Guess Sonakshi weighs around 72 kgs and kareena is easily close to 68 kgs
nona says on 3/Feb/14
@dj: Katrina has always had big curvaceous hips and thats the reason her legs look huge. Infact her legs are very toned and muscular but not fat. She easily weighs between 68 - 70 kgs, which is good weight for her 5'8.5" frame.
mj11 says on 2/Feb/14
Guys... people easily say that 5'9 to 6' is now common in bollywood actors/actresses..
But they never had known how much is that actually..
I am a 5'11 ft guy and i am taller than 85% people in wife is 5'8 and believe me she is taller than 90% girls as per her observation..
Now as per my observation with some proofs ofcourse i think these must be the real heights of actresses and actors :-
Actors -
Amitabh bacchhan - 6 ft (was 6'0.5ft in his prime)
John Abraham - 5'10 ft (had seen couple of photos of him with big b..easily 2inch difference is there)
Akshay Kumar - 5'9 (was 5-6 inch shorter than 6'3 snoop dogg in song singh is king )
Sunil Shetty - 5'7.5 (1-1.5 difference in hera pheri compared to akki)
Arjun Rampal - 5'10.5 or solid 5'10 (not much difference between him and akki in aankhen)
Ajay Devgan - 5'8
Anil Kapoor - 5'8
SRK - 5'6
Salman - 5'5.5
Aamir - 5'4
Saif Ali Khan - 5'6 (shorter than ajay devgan by 2inch in kacche dhaage)
Irfan khan - 5'10
Kunal Kapoor - 6'1
Niketan Dheer - 6'2
Emran Hashmi - 5'5.5
Imran Khan - 5'8
Ranbir Kapoor - 5'9 (shorter than rampal by 2inch in rajneeti)
Hritik Roshan - 5'8 (taller than saif by inch in na tum jaano na hum)

Actresses :-
Shilpa Shetty - 5'6.5 (equals sunil shetty's height in dhadkan may be a half inch difference)
Sushmita Sen - 5'7
Aishwarya rai - 5'3.5 ( was little shorter than kareena in award function where both were barefeet)
Kareena Kapoor - 5'4
Deepika Padukone - 5'7
Sonam kapoor - 5'7
Pooja batra - 5'8.5 (shorter than 5'10 jackie shroff may be by an inch or two )
Tabu - 5'5.5
Yukta Mookhey - 5'9.5 (Equals Sushmita's height when sushmita is in heels may be 2 inch heels)
Karishma tanna - 5'7.5
Shonal Rawat - 5'8.5 (Shorter than 5'9 jesse randhawa by .5 inch)
Mauli Dave - 5'8 (was inch or two shorter than akshay kumar in khatron ke khiladi)
Rani Mukherjee - 5'
Madhuri Dixit - 5'2
Namitha - 5'8
Anushka Shetty - 5'7.5 (Shorter than 5'9 Nagarjuna by 1.5 to 2 inch)
Anushka Sharma - 5'6.5 (She herself said that she is equal in height to SRK)
Katrina Kaif - 5'7 (looks taller than aamir by 4 to 5inch when wearing heels)

@shilps: thanks for the pic of the 2 of the most curvaceous bollywood beauties. Hard to see Kareena's footwear but Sonakshi is defnitely in heels. Guess the pis reflects their true heights as Sonakshi is 5'7" & 2" taller than the 5'5" Kareena. These 2 have got the best waist to hip ratios amongst all actreses and Sonakshi weighs 72 kgs and Kareen aabout 65 kgs

Though Huma at 5'7" is only 3" taller than the 5'4" Madhuri, she looked absolutely huge next to Madhuri with her wide hips, thick arms and legs and broad frame. Guess Huma easily weighs close to 75 kgs compared to Madhuri's 54 kgs.

I think Shonal is 5'11...I have seen a bunch of pics with her alongside other women and sometimes those women look just as tall as her or only an inch or two shorter. Saw her specifically with 5'11" Jesse Randhawa and Shonal actually looked slightly shorter!

My opinion is that if she was truly 6'1", she would be virtually untouchable.
nona says on 10/Jan/14
What are your thoughts on Shonal Rawat? She claims to be 5'11" but in reality is closer to 6'1". Quite a well built girl too at about 75 kgs but looks very thin.
averageind says on 7/Jan/14
I am modest 5'5" and have seen some actresses in real life, including tabu, and simran, they were taller than me. most Indian men are insecure and tend to downgrade heights, but these days very tall girls in the cities.
nona says on 2/Jan/14
Rani isnt more than 5 ft tall so a height difference of 1 ft in that pic with the 5'11" Pooja Batra is natural. What I like about Pooja is that she is built perfectly for her height. neither is she too thin like Shonal Rawat / Reha Sukheja nor is she huge like Yukta Mookhey. Pooja I guess weighs about 73 kgs with the right curves in the right places.
hd12 says on 2/Jan/14
Yes, yukta is certainly the tallest and biggest actress/model India has. Once I was standing beside her in Bandra function and she was in 2 inches heels. I am 5.5 but my head was reaching below her shoulders.
Dost says on 31/Dec/13
@hd, there's almost a one-foot difference there! Pooja is 5'10 to 5'11 and Rani is like 5'2 I guess.
nona says on 31/Dec/13
Watched Dhoom 3 and must say Katrina has lost tons of weight. The sad thing is with the weight her curves have disappeared and she looks more like Deepika Padukone now. I guess she is down to about 65 kgs from her previous weight of 70 kgs
nona says on 30/Dec/13
@Dost: thanks for the pics. Yes Reha Sukheja is very tall and is listed at 6'1" but she is not a giantess as she is extremely thin and hardly weighs more than 60 kgs. The only real giantess amongst Bollywood stars and models is Yukta Mookhey who is 6'1" & 88 kgs.

Going by the discussions raging here can I assume as below:
Katrina Kaif - 5'9" & 70 kgs (easily the heaviest girl amongst these with nice big hips & strong legs)
Deepika Padukone - 5'8.5" & 65 kgs (doesnt look that heavy but is very athletic and hence bone weight is more)
Anushka Sharma - 5'9" & 53 kgs (extremely thin & straight figure with no waist/hip defnition)
Diana Penty - 5'10" & 56 kgs (also extremely thin but curvaceous unlike Anushka)
Dost says on 23/Dec/13
I've seen many pics of Anushka and Katrina and even the couple of scenes in the movie where they are both in flats. And seriously, the difference between them is truly marginal and barely even visible. They appear almost exactly the same height. Probably 1cm difference at most. Deepika is right there with them as we have seen her equal to Katrina at IPL 6 and Anushka in the photo I posted. Whereas Diana is clearly taller than Deepika...

BTW, Diana doesn't appear to be in Dhoom 3. Looked like it was an erroneous report she has been removed from all entries.
