Bangalore: 2013 is a year for movie buffs to celebrate the long and successful journey Indian cinema has gone through in the last 100 years.  Any celebration is incomplete without mentioning legends of our film industry, who are the backbones of Indian cinema.

NTR:  N.T. Rama Rao; popularly known as NTR, played several mythological characters in his movies. Even today people recall him as the Lord Rama or Krishna onscreen. Some of his famous picks till date are Thodu Dhongalu, Seetharama Kalyanam and his directorial Varakatnam. After movies, his interest moved into politics. NTR was the founder of Telugu Desham Party and served in the office for three terms. He has been voted as the greatest Indian Actor Ever in a poll conducted by CNN- IBN very recently.

DILIP KUMAR: Popularly known as the ‘Tragedy King’ of Indian Cinema, he was the first actor to receive the Filmfare Best Actor Award. His genre was more towards drama and this is depicted well in some of his popular movies such as Devdas, Mughal-e- Azam, Ganga Jamuna etc. He has won the Dadasaheb Phalke Award and he was nominated as a Rajya Sabha Member as well.


AMITABH BACHCHAN: Indian Cinema today is personified with the ‘Angry Young Man’, globally. The popular actor of the 70’s had all the elements of a successful actor with the vigorous roles he performed in movies like Sholay, Zanjeer, Deewar and Agneepath, his romcom’s such as Amar Akbar Anthony, Silsila and Kabhi Kabhie.

7: What @ our Marathi actor Dada Kondke..?? Why is he expelled out from the list.?? He ruled the entire Marathi film industry for several decades.. I think, you people are reluctant to Marathi language. He's the only actor in the world, whose continuous 9 films did SILVER JUBILEE & was entered in the Guinness Book of World Records for such an achievement by any actor worldwide.. What a bloody shame it is,... Its better, if you don't send any mails to me from now onwards, U BULLSHITS SILICON INDIA NEWS..... RASCALS... STUPIDS....
