Shorter Heroes – Taller Heroines

Bollywood has always been the center of attraction to every youngster not only in India but around the world. Our Bollywood men are not only talented but handsome as well while the ladies are charming, attractive and attract the attention of many.

Bollywood were always the reigning heads in B-town but off lately there has been a brigade of beautiful looking women who entered tinsel town who are not only attractive by their physical appearance but also by their height.

In the past, actors were always seen opposite actresses who were shorter in height as it makes the pair look complete.

Now-a-days, we are not fascinated by looking at the perfect heighted pair but we are fascinated by the perfect looking pair, irrespective of their height difference.

60-70% of the actresses are taller than their male pairs but the audience reacts with positively based on the looks of the pair.

Here are 5 of Bollywood pairs where the male actor is shorter than his female lead.


She made her Bollywood debut opposite the reigning king of Bollywood – SRK. She was well accepted in the industry but her height played an important factor in deciding her roles and actors. They both have worked together in 2-3films. Although there is a huge difference in their height and age, they still complement each other while on the big screen.


Aamir Khan maybe the perfectionist of Bollywood but he lacks height. The talented actor has worked opposite many actress but the latest one being Katrina Kaif. Many were doubtful of their pair in Dhoom 3. But the film went on to make wonders at the box-office. During promotions, the actor cheekily stated that he loves romancing taller women. Really? They did call for a decent looking pair.


While Saif Ali Khan has done a film with Deepika before, he failed to anticipate that he would be suppressed by not one but two leading ladies in his film Cocktail. While Deepika is known for sexy long legs, Diana too didn’t fail to impress. Although Saif has to go through the trauma of being short to two of his leading ladies, the film didn’t fail to click at the box-office and received a good response from the audience.


This reel to real life ex couple, made heads spins each time they both were seen together. Both born with mesmerizing looks, they made for the perfect pair on screen and their height difference never came in between their work. But maybe it found its way through their personal life. They worked together on many films and never failed to impress at the box-office. Although their last film – Ek Tha Tiger was super hit, their on screen pair sure calls for some extra hotness on the big screen.


Most of Deepika’s leading male co-stars are shorter than the actor. The latest addition to the list is her rumored boyfriend Ranveer Singh. They have not done any film together other than Ram-Leela. Although Leela was taller than Ram, their on screen romance got them box-office hits. We would love to see this pair work in future projects as well.

In the past, actors used to pay deep attention about their co-stars, her looks and figure, etc. But now-a-days, they are keeping their ego aside and embracing the brigade of taller women as co-stars. Although they may look funny during film promotions, their on screen pair is what matters the most.

Bollywood has shunned away from the age old sagas and have embraced the new generation perception on films and looks of actors.
