Amitabh is not 1 inch taller than David Cameron. He is just 1 cm taller (which is less than half an inch)
prado says on 18/Feb/14
Amitabh bachchan is taller than 1 inch with David Cameron 6.1
Rahul says on 7/Jan/14
Aditya Pancholi is certainly 1 inch taller than Mr.Bachchan
Amit says on 4/Jan/14
Mr Bacchan looks 1" taller in the most dependable pics.
Fakhrul Islam says on 20/Dec/13
Sorry Aditya Pancholi 6 ft 3 he looked smaller than amiatbh bachchan because of camera angle, but garantee you hes full 6 ft 3 and 1 inch taller than Amitabh. His listing is even 6 ft 3. Jackie shroff was 1 inch shorter than amitabh in Akayla you could see it when they very close togther. In Atish Sanjay dutt was 2 inch shorter than Aditya and sanjay is only 1/4 inch horter than jackie in Kartoos. So Aditya must definately be 6 ft 3.
Fakhrul Islam says on 18/Dec/13
I've got it. Aitya Pancholi 6 ft 1 3/4 he was 2 inch taller taller than Sanjay in Attish who is 6 ft 1.Asitya pancholi is only 1/4 inch shorter than Amitabh bachchan whos 6 ft 2 in Akayla.Jackie, John Abraham, sanjay dutt, Akshay Kumar all original height is 6 ft 1. Now Akshay Kumar has lost about 1/2 inch so hes now 6 ft 1/2 and Jackie shroff whos lost about 1/2 inch 6 ft 1/2 also. I think pretty much a lot of actors are pretty much of their lkisted height, like Sunil shetty who probably is 5 ft 11 of his listed height as he was aroun 1 1/2 to 2 inch shorter than akshay kumar in their early movies together.
Fakhrul Islam says on 18/Dec/13
just lately watched Kartoos I think Jackie and sanjay are almost same height I think theres literally just 1/4 inch between them. Jackie is a little bit taller. 6 ft 1 for them is good. But its really weird how sanjays height changes aditya pancholi whos meant to be 6 ft 1 looked 6 ft 3 next to sanjay in the 1994 film they were together in as brothers.

186-187cm with Leonardo DiCaprio in Great Gatsby....

His son I think is 188cm/6ft2
cole says on 14/Dec/13
2 inches taller than DiCaprio. 6'1 is right.
Fakhrul islam says on 5/Dec/13
I honestly feel that Jakie Shroff was 6 ft 1 1/2 to 2 he was def more than 6 ft 1 at peak amitabh bachchan could of def been 6 ft 3 akshay kumar peak 6 ft 1 sanjay dutt 6 ft 1/2 mithun chakraborty 6 ft sunil shetty 5 ft 11 could of been 5ft 11 1/2
Shorty says on 30/Nov/13
Amitabh bachchan is 5.11 due to his 2inch hair style and elevator shoes make him look like tall
Himanshu says on 27/Nov/13
Abhishek height is 185 cm is true. I have photograph of he and his father in flip flop which also proves that Amitabh bachchan is not more than 6 ft 1inch anyhow. Moreover my friend is 185 cm and so do I.
Go to Amitabh bachchan facebook page and you will find the photo in Nov 2013 events.
Rahul says on 14/Oct/13
Rob, Amitabh is certainly 6' 1.75" even today. He has a good half an inch on Pierce Brosnan, whom you hv rated 6' 1.25", in every still with him.
KROC says on 11/Oct/13
@ Arch Stanton I agree with you concerning Abhishek. I believe hé is 6'1.5 or 186cm-Thé same height Amitabh was in his prime. Obviously Amitabh has lost about an inch which makes him just shy of 6'1. You can look at pictures of Abhishek in his late teens with his father. They were virtually the same height.
Arch Stanton says on 27/Sep/13
I still think Abhishek looks around 6'2", but that Daggubatti bloke really did make him looks 6'1" range but I think Daggubattu looks nearer 6'3" than 6'2".
Arch Stanton says on 27/Sep/13
Rob would you agree that proportionally he can still give the illusion of being 6'2" range? Click Here He looks 189-90 in that photo to me. I know he's 185 tops nowadays but he really can still give the illusion of being taller.
[Editor Rob: you can always get people looking a few inches taller or shorter on their own]
Kj says on 18/Sep/13
I think 6"2 in
kali says on 16/Sep/13
Amitabh Bachchan's height 6.2 inch.
caaq says on 12/Sep/13
Like I said, one man's 6 footer is someone else's 5 -10. Depends on how you define height. How one measures, time of day, how one stands when being measured, etc. Watched Satyagraha yesterday. Amitabh wearing flat sandles looked about 3 inches taller than 5-9 ajay devgan in shoes. Both their hairs were similar and so negated any advantage to any one person. So I think 6-05 inches solid to 6-1 at most is a good assessment for amitabh. He used to be 6-2 even 7 or 8 years back. In ek ajnabee he was half an inch over arjun rampal, but here arjun rampal looked a bit taller in most scenes. So, I think Arjum rampal is a solid 6-1, wearing regular shoes or keds making him look 6-2, which made him look 1.5 to 1 inches taller than amitabh here. Also he looked about 4 inches taller than ajay devgan most of the time, sometimes 3 inches. this explains it.
Rahul says on 11/Sep/13
Yuvraj Singh is 6' 2"
Vikas says on 10/Sep/13
Ambitabh Bacchhan is 6'2 same as Shatrughan Sinha. Sanjay Dutt and Akshay Kumar are both 6-0.5 Yuvraj is 6'1.Sunil Shetty is 5'11.
caaq says on 9/Sep/13
In addition to some more heights I sent in, I need to say something to everyone. Wno need to argue on differences in estimates of up to 1.5 inches or so, as it all depends on what method of measurement has been used and also time of day. Most heights I have listed are as these people appear during most part of the day. Neither when they are at their tallest when they wake up in the morning, nor after a very hard days work by which time people shrink by upto 2 to 3cm (0.7 to 1.2 inches). Also, depends on the height measurement mechanism. Majority of people press a scale down on their heads in a way that it slopes downwards from the crown of the head up to the wall. And the slope is at a 15 degree angle and people measure themselves often up to 1.5 inches lesser. I have recently proven 2 people who said they were 5-11 and 6 respectively to be 6feet and 6-1.5 in reality and to their own surprise. Perfect height measurement is when someone stands barefeet but feet together, nice and straight in front of a. Scale. Whatever height mark u cover (including normal about 1/2 inch hair, which is common for all), is the height that u are. Pressing a scale down, and at an angle below the head, will always subtract an inch from u. Many actors overstate their heights while some understimate themselves. That's why the tallest 6 footers and casually described 6-2 people are therefore the same.
caaq says on 9/Sep/13
Would like to add to the list below. Fardin khan: 5-10.5, ritesh deshmukh- 5-11, shreyash talpade: 5-8.5, aditya roy kapoor - solid perfect 6 (loose 6-0.5), sonu sood- solid 6-2 (casual 6-3), emran hashmi: solid 5-7 (casual 5-8), niel nitin mukhesh : solid 5-8.5 (casual 5-9)
caaq says on 1/Sep/13
Ignoring footwear, after much observation, comparison and adjustments I have concluded the following heights. But let me clarify- these heights refer to people's original barefeet heights, standing straight but comfortably, but not stretching the spine, measured up to the highest point of the head:amitabh-6-1now, abhishek -6-1.5, kunal kapoor: 6-3, shahrukh khan:5-8,salman khan: 5-7; amir khan: 5-6, saif khan:5-9,jackie shroff: 6-0, sanjay dut:5-11, ajay. Devgan: 5-9.5, ranbir kapoor:5-11; arjun rampal: 6-0, john abraham: 6-0.5, akshay kapoor: 5-11, sunil shetty: 5-10, suny deol:5-9, bobby deol: 5-11.5, milind sonam: 6-0, boman irani: 6-1.5, arjun kapoor: 6-0, hrithik roshan: 5-10.5, anil kapoor:5-10, priyanshu: 6-2, kabir bedi:6-3, nikitin dheer: 6-4.5/5, vinod khanna: 5-11.5, akshay khanna: 5-9, jimmy shergil: 5-9, kapil sharma: 5-8.5, manish paul: 5-11.5, uday chopra:5-8.5, karan johar: 5-10, shahed kapoor: 5-9.25
Rahul says on 1/Sep/13
Rob, 6'1" for Amitabh is very less. He looks as tall as 6'2" Indian Cricketer Yuvraj Singh in just about every still and video with him.
Also what do you think could be Abhishek Bachchan's height?
Any way, can you include indian cricketers in 'celebheights'? There are lot of them in the range of 6'1" to 6'4". You will have lot of responses from indian cricket fans.
Fakhrul Islam says on 18/Aug/13
I think alot of people are close or are their there height at peak so I think Sanjay Dutt was 5 ft 11 1/2 or 1/4 akshay Kumar was 5 ft 11 3/4 and Jackie shroff was spot on 6 ft.
Rahul says on 15/Aug/13
Amitabh is certainly 6' 1.75" to 6' 2" even today. He looks as tall as Yuvraj Singh who is a certain 6' 2".
Abhishek is around 6' 2.25" or even 6' 2.5"
teej says on 11/Aug/13
Why are indians in india so small? Im indian in the uk and im 6'1 not many people look up to me im just a little over average
KROC says on 10/Aug/13
I think 6ft is reasonable now. That would make his son Abhishek what 6'1, 6'1.5?
Ankit says on 2/Aug/13
Amitabh is 6ft 1inch only
prasad says on 29/Jul/13
Amitabh bhachan is 6ft 3 inch
AMR says on 7/Jul/13
Anushka is 5'9" and with 5" heels she stood at 6'2" that is why she is looking taller than nowdays Amitabh of 6'
Arch Stanton says on 2/Jul/13
Rob, I thought you used to have him at 6'0.5"? I agree that he did look near 6'2" in his prime and can still look around 6'1" today.
[Editor Rob: about over a year ago I did, but thought he might have still been near 6ft 1]
Real Heights says on 23/Jun/13
@Engineer- Its a Good Picture you have shared. Anushka Sharma is 5' 8" and the heels she is wearing is 4". She is 6' with the heels in the picture. Amitabh Bacchan is waering 1 inch shoes and is not standing straight and both appear to be of the same height. I would say nowadays Amitabh is 6' and with 1" shoes he is 6' 1".
Engineer says on 19/Jun/13
some reality check, look at this picture with Anushka, agreed she is in heels probably giving 3" advantage making he close to 6'. AB is also has at least 1" of shoe, which proves his current height is just about 6'

Elizabeth Debicki is one of the tallest women I've ever seen. In that photo she's in heels for shure. In other pics they looked almost the same. Debicki is 6'1.5 and Bachchan also or half inch shorter. Consider DiCaprio wears well heeled shoes...

Thankyou.
[Editor Rob: I don't have any of those photos anymore]
Bindi says on 25/Jan/13
@honest, you've got most of them just right. Amitabh is 6'0.5 on a good day and if you look closely Jr Bachchan is always wearing cowboy boots with atleast 1.5 inch heels, so you can calculate how tall he really is. Its true, the only reason Amitabh looks unusually tall is cause most actors in India are of short stature.
Naman says on 14/Jan/13
Amitabh bachchan is 6'1"tall
honest says on 10/Jan/13
Shahrukh Khan is 5' 7" Max. Salman Khan is 5' 5.5", Aamir Khan 5' 4.5"
Amitabh Bachchan Present 6' 0.5" (Peak 6' 1.5"), Abhishek Bachchan 6'1",
Akshay Kumar 5'10.75", Sanjay Dutt 5' 10.5" (peak 5'11"), John Abraham & Arjun Rampal 5' 11.5". Jackie Shroff 5'11" (peak 5'11.5"). Anil Kapoor 5'9". Sunil Shetty 5' 8.5", Ajay Devgan 5' 8.75".
Fakhrul Islam says on 6/Jan/13
nope sorry akshay kumar was definately 6 ft 1 peak, arjun rampal 6 ft 1, sunil shetty 5 ft 11, jackie shroff and sanjay dutt Im pretty sure are same height at peak so both 6 ft, could be 5 ft 11 1/2, Amitabh Bachchan is 6 ft 2 like he says he was. Im not sure Mithuns peak height but everyones height is spot on. Salman Khans height was 5 ft 8 pretty much.

I think these are the heights of the bollywood,
Akshay Kumar - 5 ft 10 3/4, peak height was 6 ft
sanjay dutt - 5 ft 11
sunil shetty - 5 ft 10 1/2
mithun chakraborty - 5 ft 10 1/4
john abraham 6 ft 1
amitabh bachchan - 6 ft 2 1/2 peak now maybe 6 ft 1 1/2
shahrukh khan - 5 ft 9 3/4 peak now 5 ft 7 3/4.
Fakhrul Islam says on 19/Dec/12
i think amitabh is 6 ft 3 or 6 ft 2 1/2 because in the akayla people were saying there is 1.75 inch difference between jackie and amitabh. Where as cant be it is more 2 1/2 to 3 inch diference.
Fakhrul Islam says on 18/Dec/12
i think all actors are very close to their height, i think some people are lying.

saw John Abraham at d airport last week....he is shorter than me (m 5"11) i put him at 5"9-5"9.5
honest says on 16/Nov/12
Dear Rob- Amitabh was never a legit 6'2, not even in his young days. He was 6' 1.5" at best (could even have been 6'1"). He was very slim came with actors who were mostly in the 5'6 to 5'10 range making him look even taller. At present he is 6' 0.5" at best, some times he even looks like 6' on the dot.
Bollywood actors are not as tall as their fans think:
Salman Khan 5' 5.5" (wears elevator shoes)
Shahrukh Khan 5' 7" (wears normal shoes 1 inch, though could wear 1.5 inch heeled shoes some times)
Aamir Khan 5' 4.5"
John Abraham 5'11.5" to 11.75" (Not a legit six footer)
Akshay Kumar 5' 10.75"
Sanjay Dutt (5' 10.5" peak was 5'10.75 to 5'11 max)
Jackie Shroff 5'11" (Peak 5' 11.25 to 11.5 max)
Anil Kapoor 5' 9" legit (same at peak, not lost any height to date)
Abhishek Bachchan 6'1" legit to 6'1.5" at most.
Saif Ali Khan 5'7"
Shahid Kapoor 5' 7"
Sunny Deol 5' 7 to 7.5" (Peak 5' 7.5")
Bobby Deol 5' 10.5"
Dharmendra 5' 7" (Peak 5' 7.5")
Shatrugun Sinha 5' 10" (Peak 5' 10.5)
Vinod Khanna 5' 10" (Peak 5' 10.5 to 10.75")
Arjun Rampal 5' 11.5" legit
Ranbir Kapoor 5' 11.5 max (5' 11" solid)
manish says on 10/Nov/12
Actually Big B is 6'3" and he is 1 inch taller than John .
Ejel Khan says on 2/Nov/12
Salman says on 6/Feb/12
Rob, why did you upgrade Amitabh Bachchan's height to 6 ft 1 from 6 ft 0.5?

Please enlighten us a Rob.
[Editor Rob: maybe not lost as much as I thought]
Fakhrul Islam says on 27/Oct/12
just seen the film alaaka Aloy, mithun is only quarter or half inch shorter than sanjay and pretty sure sanjay is only quarter inch shorteer than jackie. This is because sanjay is same height or a little bit taller than vinod KHANNA and jackie was quarter inch taller than vinod so all the bollywood 6 footers are in contention of the 6 foot mark but just lost a bit of height with age or injuries.
john says on 12/Oct/12
Click Here at this arjun rampal 1inch taller than abhay deol who is 6-1.........
Aloy says on 3/Oct/12
John is and was always good 2" shorter than Amitji.Amiji is 6' now. Compare him with 5'8"Sushmita Sen in Ankhein.He was max 4" taller. Arjun is 5'10.5"-5'11" and Akki is 5'9.5"-5'10." Paresh Rawal is actually shorter than Sushmita Sen. He is 5'7" max.
® says on 17/Sep/12
6'0 - 6'1. Rob do u think his lad is any taller?

He's nowhere near his 6'4 claim, looks strong 6'1 at his very very best or a weak 6'2.
Aloy says on 18/Aug/12
@ Fakhrul, I guess you are pretty accurate. These stars exaggerate their heights for business-purpose. But Sanjay Dutt was a good 1.5" taller than Mithun Da.
I think Mithun Da was 5'9" peak and now 5'8." Sanjay Dutt I think was 5'10.5" and now he's 5'9.5." Arjun is maximum 5'11" its silly that he always claims 6'2"!John FAKE Abraham has always exaggerated his abilities. In his website he claimed to have performed 385 pound Incline press. Well 385lbs for incline press is very heavy even for ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER! John has claimed 6' in Desi boyz unlike his usual 6'1" claims!

Fakhrul says on 29/Jul/12
following amitabhs height at 6 ft 1 I have a list some bollywood actors heights
amitabh bachchan 6 ft 3/4
jackie shroff 5 ft 11 peak
akshay kumar 5 ft 11 peak
sanjay dutt 5 ft 10 peak
mithun chakraborty 5 ft 10 peak
sunny deol 5 ft 9
shahrukh khan 5 ft 8 1/4 peak makes sense cause his given height is 5 ft 8.
sunil shetty 5 ft 9
salman khan 5 ft 6 3/4
this is my list, from looking at these heights maybe you can have a stab at some of the other actors heights.
Fakhrul says on 29/Jul/12
Hi guys I think amitabhs height is 6 ft 1 some people used to say that hollywood added an inch to their height maybe bollywood did the same since evidence shows that amitabh is 6 ft 1. With Jackie shroff he said to someone that hes 5 ft 11 and amitabh was 1 inch 3/4 taller than jackie so kind a makes sense. Unless of course hes lost an inch of height.
avi says on 16/Jun/12
i remember that pic with Manum. really seemed close to 6'1 but never ever was 6'2. could give the 6'2 to 6'3 impression but a lot of those indian actors he starred with were really short. between 5'0 -5'8 especially for the older generation.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 12/Feb/12
This looks spot on.
avi says on 9/Feb/12
never was 6'2. maybe 6'1 in past now 6'0

SANJAY Dutt in his prime was 5'11.5/6FT----NOTHING MORE!!! BELIEVE ME
