      Personally my favorite handsome actor is Akshay Kumar. Most of the bollywood praises Akshay for his good looks, every co-star, director. Salman, Jacqueline, Zareen, katrina, anushka, jackie shroff, poonam pandey almost everyone everyone praised his good looks. But I know that Hrithik, Salman and John are also very handsome. Among younger actors, I think Hrithik is most handsome.
