Top Indian Comedy Actors & Actresses

They have a genetic predispostion to comedy and a flair for comedy. Few started out as actors. Either the frontbenchers from Filthystan, didn't appriciate the acting (since they have no class or style and they only see the Ek Tha Waterbuffalo banchod brothers and the three makkaka monkey maderchods or the demented cretin with a hairclub for khoja men hair transplant that he covers with a generous supply of vaseline and walks and talks like a khoja banchod.)

This tiger suvvar from suvvarstan a bonafide illegal and illiterate scum, talks with a clear lisp and has the looks of cherubic monkey mated with a buffalo ending with toad eyed maderbanchod, who prances around like a chimpanzee in his kuttae banchod brother-sponsored bought and sold-award shows. This scum maderchod with canine ancestry on his mothers side and suvvar ancestry on his fathers side is considered a leading actor in India, more like leading orangutan, a six-pack ab jackass, whose dialog sounds like mating call of sea urchin.

The actors themselves did not take acting seriously or they just could not resist the urge within to do comedy and they became comedy actors.

The reason the Hindi cinema is in a gutter, is because of this The Ek Tha mader banchod with suvvar ancestry is a certifed cretin by the Board of Cretins, who has the leading khojha in Hindi movies. This maderchod is a buffalo who is kicked in all airports and stadiums by cops and body cavity searched. Indeed some of his dance moves are as a result of the body cavity search. This suvvar is a disgrace even to the suvvar kind.

Few are versatile in both as in Amithab Bachchan, Abishek Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Paresh Rawal, and Priyanka Chopra. Comedy is tougher than acting, since, it is to do with timing and emotion and not just emoting. The greatest comedian Charlie Chaplin, was also one of the greatest actors and this was before the sound came to cinema.

Comedy requires use of 42 muscles in the face as opposed to tragedy that only needs 17 or the other way around or in the case of the Ek Tha Buffalo from filthystan, whose dialog sounds like a toad struck in a sewer-a six pack ab will do the trick. This ek tha maderchod is disgrace to all actors and even the canine breed that he belongs to and the buffalo that he is. This imbecile looking cretin is the worst thing that happened to the Hindi cinema and India and the mankind. This bosddike scum is a degenerate of humanity.

What counts is the versatility and un-inhibition, that is needed to do comedy as in Priyanka Chopra in her skits at the award shows and Abishek Bachchan as "Abbas Ali" in "Bol Bachchan."

“ Athletic guy with the smile of a cheshire cat. He is a natural with a perfect comedy timing. He is a good comedy actor since he doesn't take acting seriously, but he surprised all in "Patiala House." His relaxed manner, attitude and good humor makes him an excellent Emcee/Host along with Priyanka Chopra. ” - Herag Halli
 
2.
“ Latter day Mehmood-a comedian's comedian. He and Lillete Dubey, make a good comedy team in Cinema and Theater. His acting in "OMG Oh My God" should bring in few awards unless the Goondas of Bollywood keep it in the family. ” - Herag Halli

“ Probably the most talented of Indian actors. She has come a long way since "The Hero", the movie with Sunny Deol.

However-her acting in "Barfi" is pathetic and non-autistic (batting eyelids like a chipmunk is not autistic) The movie will not make it to the Oscars and the best movie that represented the Indian movie industry would have been "English Vinglish" by a genius debut director-Gauri Shinde. ” - Herag Halli

“ Not the most handsome guy around but he is handsome compared to the three banchods (the socalled three leading actors-anyone is handsome compared to the three or more kuttae scum traitors) He is more a villain than a hero. He is not meant for drama and as a romantic hero-a clear failure. He has good comedic timing as in 'Hera Pheri." ” - Herag Halli
