They say age is just a number. Sahi hai. And these older Indian actors, politicians, fitness enthusiasts and models proved it time and again, as they demonstrate perfection as an absolute. Every day they look better than the previous day. And we salute this constant process of self-grooming and self-fashioning. 

1. R. Madhavan, 48

From 3 Idiots to Tanu Weds Manu, Maddy is one of those brilliant actors who have only gotten better with time. Recently turned 48 in June, Maddy will soon start working on ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke‘ alongside Sushant Singh Rajput.

2. Anil Kapoor, 61

Having been in the acting industry for around 40 years now, this papacito won fame with Bollywood blockbuster, Tezaab (1988) and clearly, there has been no looking back. 


He will soon start working on Karan Johar’s historical drama named Takht, casting Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar, and Vicky Kaushal.


3. Akshay Kumar, 50

He’s not just an actor, but is also a martial artist, for action thrillers like Khiladi 420, and Khakee. From comedies like Hera Pheri, to more socially relevant movies like Pad Man, and Gold; Akshay Kumar has done it all.


Quit playing games with our heart, khiladi.


4. Suniel Shetty, 57

From Mohra to Dhadkan, Suniel Shetty makes our hearts go dhak-dhak every time he appears on-screen.

This fine hunk will soon return on Bollywood screen with Hera Pheri 3 in December, this year.


5. Milind Soman, 52

This fit studmuffin’s feed is always filled with multiple marathons which he undertakes mostly barefoot. What a wow, folks.

He recently appeared onscreen with Rahul Dev, in his January release, Humara Tiranga.

Flashback ! Monsoon in the Sahyadris 😁😁

This is what he has to say about his age-

“I am only two triathlons old and that’s how I define my age :smile:

Take lessons in positivity from Milind, people.

He recently tied the knot with his girlfriend, Ankita Konwar on 22 April 2018.

*tears rolling down our cheeks*

Seems like yesterday 😊😊😊 happy monthversary shreemati 🤗🤗🤗 !!!

6. Rahul Bose, 51

This cake is fondly remembered for his role in Jhankaar Beats, making us skip a heartbeat every time we see him performing. He will soon be seen in Vishwaroopam II, in August 2018.


7. Rahul Dev, 49

Rahul Dev is our favourite villain. Be it comedy, or drama, you know a film’s going to be epic, if it has Rahul Dev, ain’t it? 

His Telugu film, ‘Sadhu’ is scheduled to release in November, this year.


 8. Ronit Roy, 52

TBH, in 2 States, we were all eyes for Arjun Kapoor’s daddy, played by Ronit Roy. Yep, that’s the charm of this 52-year-old, who’s currently working on ALT Balaji’s Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain.


9. Irrfan Khan, 51

Padmashri-cladded, one gem of an actor, Irrfan boasts of an impressive personality. He carries our hearts in his coat’s pocket.


He became popular for movies like Slumdog Millionaire (2008), The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), Life of Pi (2012), Jurassic World (2015) and Inferno (2016).


10. Kay Kay Menon, 51

This wholesome entertainer is a grey-eyed gift of Lord to this world, and we are not Kay. Kay?

His present pipeline includes a movie based on Emergency declared in 1975, ‘San’ 75 Pachattar’.

11. Adil Hussain, 54

Adil Hussain pioneered his acting career with films like English Vinglish, and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi.

He will soon be seen in Tamil film ‘2.0’ and while he’s played his age – whatever that is – onscreen, we can’t wait to see more of him.  


12. Omar Abdullah, 48

Youngest Chief Minister of the State of Jammu and Kashmir, Omar played himself in Apoorva Lakhia’s film, Mission Istanbul (2008). 


13. Akkineni Nagarjuna, 58

The face of South Indian cinema, he’s been a gold mine of talent, ever since his childhood. He began his acting career as a child artist in 1967 Telugu film Sudigundalu.

He has given Indian cinema gems like Maniratnam, Annamayya, and Shiva.


Who else do you think belongs to this list of fine wine?
