@Pankaj Tomar

You must be deluded.

John Cena ka chest agar 50 inches hai aur uske Biceps 19 inch hai to Sunny Deol ke 52 inches aur 20.5 kaise hue

Tera dimaag kharaab hoga

Sunny deol height chest and biceps ek dum wrong post kiye jaate Hain. Bollywood mein sabse heavy body paaji ki hai.. Sunny deol ki real height 5'10" hai chest 52" and biceps 20.5" hai... Dharam ji se 1 inch jyada height hai Sunny deol ki.

You have me to thank for the listing ;-)

Wow, excellent listing Rob... surprised you have him listed. One of the greatest bollywood actors of all time, yes I believe he was a peak 5'10 guy. His sons Sunny Deol looks actually the same height as he is currently, so 5'8 seems right. Bobby Deol looks anywhere in the 5'10.5 mark. Good to see his sons and daughter have continued his legacy.

Dharmendra is strong 5'4 to 5'5. I met him and he is 2 inches shorter than me. I am about 5'7. He is also very shorter than my friends William who is 1.5 inches shorter than Salman Khan who I thought to be about 5'6 tops.

I was never ever 5' 10'' guy at any stage of his career, most probably his peak was 5' 9'' but not even a centimeter above it
mayank said on 15/Nov/15
It is hard to believe he is 5.8 because in screen he looked much taller

Rob,if I say in mid 50's he is lost 1/2inch,are you agree about that?
[Editor Rob: he might have lost that amount.]

If the is 5ft 8 now..bobby deol can be anywhere from 6ft to 6ft 1..
Radi said on 31/May/15
5'10 peak and now struggles with 5'8
issa said on 30/May/15
Rob, it's my birthday. Now please add Rekha and Hema Malini at 5'6?

Sunny Deol is barely taller than salman Khan. He's somewhere in the 5'8" range. Somewhere between 5'8"-5'8.5"

Don't forget that Khan often wears lifts/clumpy shoes to look taller. I wouldn't be surprised if Sunny was actually a legit 5 ft 9 but Khan managed to pull off looking taller. Salman is the Indian Stallone.

Dharmendra's Peak height was 5ft 10in (178 cm)

I agree, looks this in masterpiece Sholay.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/15
Rob there's an article, if slightly gushing one on Rekha Click Here She really is an iconic actress in Asia and worth adding. I don't think she looked 5 ft 7 peak though.

@Amaze what do you reckon about Rekha? I'd always thought about 5 ft 6, 5 ft 7 seems high for her, but I might be wrong.

Amaze said on 26/May/15
He is 5'10 peak. no less no more.
And hes 7 years older than amitabh. Amitabh is 73 this year, dharmendra will be 80. So a 2 inch loss is understandable. Amitabh is 6'1 now while dharmendra is 5'8. 5 inch difference. In 7 years amitabh will be 6'0 so he will have a 2 inch loss just like dharmendra did
John said on 26/May/15
Just saw Officer,there's not even one scene in which Sunil Shetty looks 5 inches taller than Raveena(5'5.25-166cm).In most of the scenes he only looks about 3 or 4 inches taller.That makes him 5'9-9.25.
John said on 26/May/15
Sunny Deol is 5'8 and about an inch taller than him that makes him 5'7 range.Not sure about his peak height but should be arround 5'9 considering he is 5'7 today.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/15
5'8 flat is OK now, guys of his age typically in photos don't stand quite as tall as they can of course.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/15
My mistake, he's actually 7 years older than Amitabh and will be 80 in December this year. If you really look at him in Chupke it's difficult to see under 5 ft 10 in my opinion. But today I think these people are right, he can look as low as 5'7.5. So it's quite possible he's lost 2.5 inches, a tad more than average loss at 80. I'd give him the full 5 ft 10 peak and 5'7.5 now.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/15
Of course you can't rule out 5'9.5 peak and 5'7.5 now but I really did think he looked an easy 5 ft 10 in the 70s. He does look as low as 5'7.5 in that Amitabh more recent photo.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/15
He looked much taller with Amitabh back in the 70s!
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/15
You can see here Click Here he's lost a lot more height than Amitabh, despite being the same age I think. I do think he's actually lost a good two inches.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/15
Rob he's still active I think, people say he's nearer 5 ft 8 today, so maybe a peak and current.
linke said on 26/May/15
Sunny deol is 5'9 and Bobby is around 5'11.
Arch Stanton said on 25/May/15
Gil says on 24/May/15
There is definitely more than 4 inches between him and amitabh bachan. Definetly 5'9, maybe 5'9.5"

No there wasn't. Trust me I got a very good look at him with Amitabh and I think Rob and Amaze did too. 5'10 looked genuine back in the 70s. Rob might consider adding a current listing too though seems as he's still active I think.
Arch Stanton said on 25/May/15
@Max he was definitely about 5 ft 10 peak, see him in Chupke with Amitabh, looked too tall to only be 5 ft 8 or 9, he passed for tallish for his generation. Today he might be just 5 ft 8.
rahul said on 25/May/15
Dharmendra was never 5' 10. He was 5'8 throu3ghout. his son sunny deol is the same height as him. Hes 5'9. Has an inch on his dad
Arch Stanton said on 25/May/15
Thanks, can you squeeze in Yaadon Ki Baraat, Anupama, Ghazab and Apne? This was his peak height, really looked it, today I'm told he's nearer 5 ft 8.
Arch Stanton said on 25/May/15

This listing is a little too generous, I could by 5'9" at his peak.
Max said on 24/May/15
Rob hes 5' 8" at best. The 5' 10 must be his peak height!!!!!! Can you add his sons sunny deol and bobby deol. They are famous actors aswell.
Linke said on 24/May/15
These days 5'8.
issa said on 24/May/15
Rob, add more films like Yadoon Ki Baaraat, Yamla Pagla Deewana, Mera Gaon Mera Desh, and Ram Balram. He's a bollywood legend so he needs more films. Also, can you add 5'10 as his peak height and 5'8 as his current height?
