I honestly think Amitabh Bachchan barely touches 6 foot today, he is the same as WWE chairman Vince mcmahon.. in his peak, he might've been a full 6'2' or at least 6'1'5

Please add rajkumar rao height (Bollywood actor) he looks sometimes 5'9.5 and others times even below 5'8.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jun/21
I think peak may have fallen into 188-188.5cm zone more than 187.5cm

How tall could the person next to amitabh's right side be? He is sanjay dutt who is a bollywood actor. Click Here
Editor Rob
could look almost 6ft there.
Matthew Lean said on 4/Jun/21
@Rob paul how tall could the person next to amitabh be? The person was vinod khanna who was a bollywood actor. Click Here
Editor Rob
It's a tricky shot tilted a bit in Vinod's favour, but both moving...could be 3 inches apart there.
Matthew Lean said on 28/May/21
@Rob Paul what is the minimum u can give for his peak height?
Editor Rob
don't think I'd go under 6ft 2 by much at all
Matthew Lean said on 28/May/21
Would say his peak height is 188.5cm
Editor Rob
around 6ft 2, maybe a good chance of solid range
Rahul roy said on 25/May/21
arunadaya singh is 6'2.5" i think. Listed at 6.4 which is stupidity
Matthew Lean said on 14/May/21
@Rob paul How tall is the guy in black suit next to kabir bedi? Click Here
Editor Rob
maybe bedi shrunk a bit, but near 6ft 4 for that guy?
Matthew Lean said on 9/May/21
@ Rampage Clover no he would have been the equivalent of an american who is over 6ft6 cuz he was 10 inches taller than an average indian in his time
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/May/21
He was a solid 6ft2 in his Bollywood he'd be considered the equivalent height-wise as a Liam Neeson or Jeff Goldblum
Chowdhury Quaseed said on 7/May/21
I think Amitabh can pass for about 6-0.5 or 6-1. He slouches a bit at times reducing the look a bit. But this much we can give him. Lets say 6-0.75.
At his best he may have been a pretty legit 6-2.
Matthew Lean said on 21/Apr/21
@Rahul roy yeah hard to tell. But he did look taller than 6 ft 2 in his prime
Rahul roy said on 18/Apr/21
@ matthew lean , sonu looked 6.3 there if amitabh is 6.1.amitabh's eye level 's mid point is levelled with sonu end of the nose. But then sonu tilting his head little up so 6'2.5" is correct guess for him. Now whether amitabh is legit 6'1or not i really cant tell.
Matthew Lean said on 12/Apr/21

How tall is the guy on the left?
Editor Rob
he claimed 6ft 3 and a half, but 6ft 2.5 might be arguable
Matthew Lean said on 18/Mar/21
Rob paul can you please add Sonu sood? He is a well known bollywood actor
Matthew Lean said on 16/Mar/21
Rob paul what is the max you can give for his peak height?
Editor Rob
6ft 2 is the highest
mdiz said on 16/Mar/21
My friend's brother in law who claim himself as 6'3" met Amitabh when Amitabh was in his 60s. He told that Amitabh is shorter than me and was looking upto me. Amitabh might have been solid 6'1" during that time. So my assumption would be as below :-

Amitabh peak - 6'1.75"
Amitabh in his 60s - 6'1"
Current - 6'0.4"
mdiz said on 16/Mar/21
Average guess is spot on
Peak 6'1.7"
Current 6'0.4"
He looks a good 1.5 or little more shorter than Strong 6'2" or 6'2.25" Chris Gayle.
Public Enemy said on 13/Feb/21
I would say 6’1.75 low as peak. Today 6 ‘flat.
JindaJatt said on 11/Feb/21
My Grandfather who is 5'8 was a bodyguard in Chandigarh so he had to protect the actors who came from Bombay (Mumbai) so Bachchan Saab was shooting for a movie with this turban and a photo was also taken but when my uncle met him since my uncle is 6'2.5" my uncle was apparently taller than Big B the year was around 2006 or 2007 and Big B was already over the age of 60.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Nov/20
Arch is right, in India this guy would have been seen as a giant. I don't think less than 6ft2 peak. He still looked over 6ft1 5-10 years ago. Maybe now he's starting to dip below 6ft1 though
Jeet said on 9/Oct/20
Amitabh was never really a 6.2 guy.In his film satte pe satta which was shot in 1981(released in 1982),there in that movie an actor named kanwaljit palyed the role of one of Amitabh's younger brother.Kanwaljit was clearly taller than amitabh by at least 1 -1.5 inch even when amitabh was wearing really good long boots,and kanwaljit always claimed his height was 6.2.So amitabh no way was 6.2 even when he was young.Another example i m giving you rob.Dara singh who was an indian wrestler who won international trophies in wrestling he too was clearly taller than amitabh in the movie mard(shot in 1983,released in 1985)AHe was much more older than amitabh,stillnin his old age he looked clearly taller than amitabh by 1 inch at least.So amitabh was never really a 6.2 guy.Yup his moring height was definitely very close to 6.2 but his real peak height was 6.1.25.
Glady said on 6/Sep/20
Amitabh Bachchan is no more than 6ft today bcz of his advanced age he has shrunk a lot. currently he looks only weak 6ft.
Pradip said on 6/Aug/20
Rob please downgrade him to 6'0".he not even a mm more than that
MRD said on 29/Jul/20
187cm peak and 184 cm now.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jul/20
For his generation I'd say he was 9 to 10 inches taller than an average Indian man. So it would roughly be like Rock Hudson and Frank Sinatra comparison. Amitabh for his generation would have been seen like a 6'5-6'6 man, now consider that Satyajit Ray was 6 ft 4 range, he'd have been about a foot taller than average height in India!!
Kalind said on 9/Jun/20
When I saw his wax figure, he was only four inches taller than me (5’8). However, they probably did his wax figure when he was past his prime. Gonna guess that Amitabh was 6’1 in his prime, since he looked 6’ flat when I saw his wax figure.
DP276 said on 22/May/20
I’ve seen a couple pics of him recently. He seems about the same height or at most 2 cm taller than Irrfan Khan. I believe Arjun Rampal is a flat 6 foot guy, and Amitabh sir is about 1-2 cm taller than him; I noted that Arjun had flat shoes and Amitabh had high heeled dress shoes. Based off of that, I can’t give Amitabh anything over 5’11.75 ie 182.2 cm. His peak height was about 6’1 though.
Rajkumar Dushason said on 28/Apr/20
I personally saw him in Kolkata Film Festival 4 years ago. He was Six foot flat, nothing more. He was nearly an inch shorter than me in similar shoes. Please downgrade him Rob.
Sap said on 23/Apr/20
Mazhar malim amitabh belonged from that era where lifts for men wasn't available atleast in india he never used lifts he barely wore high shoes throughout his entire career.He was surely 6.2 in his young days if not atleast 6.1.5.Now i would put him 6feet flat or a little above say 6.0.5.
Yashgupta said on 5/Apr/20
Definitely he is not 6ft1now I think, currently he is in 183cm-184cm range
Yashgupta said on 4/Apr/20
Rob I think Amitabh is currently in 183-184cm range, but I am pretty sure he is not 6.1now
Ricky muliawan hansyar said on 3/Apr/20
Amitabh now is 183 cm (6ft0in),please downgrade rob
Linke said on 28/Mar/20
Rob, I think he should be downgraded to 183 cms now.
Mazhar Malim said on 15/Mar/20
In his prime he looked very well be above 6'0" maybe around 6'1", and it is said that he used lifts in some of his movies which gave him about an inch of height or approximately 2-3cm, therefore the 6'2" claim. Not sure about the lifts but now i believe he looks to be around 5'11½"-6'0" - nothing below this.
Lakheswar Saikia said on 16/Feb/20
Sir Now he is 78+

Hi Rob,

Some Pakistani guys also please :) I know you got so many but how about Imran Khan or Wasim Akram. Both are known in India also so you will get traction on it. Wasim AKram especially has the worst posture I feel and may have shrunk. Would love to see a peak height and present height on him :) :) Any thoughts Rob ?
Aaryan Malhotra said on 7/Jun/19
Amitabh Bachchan was a strong 6'1" in his peak, but right now he is somewhere between 5'11.5" to 6'0".What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob
He might now be at an age in which he starts looking a weak six footer.

Neelasish Send Roy said on 8/Mar/19
Sometime I think height similarity between Amitabh Bachchan and Satyajit Ray's Fictional Character 'Feluda or Pradosh Chandra Mitter' Both were 6'2"(188cm) tall. Is Feluda's character is taken after seeing Amitabh Bachchan?
Neelasish Send Roy said on 2/Mar/19
6'2" not so. Today he looks 6'0"(2inches shorter than Kunal Proof and 1 inch shorter than his son). I think he was 6'1"(185cm) at his peak and weighs 176lbs(80kg). I think his height, weight and measurement is same as britain- american actor Cary Grant, who was also 6'1" tall and weighs 176lbs.

arun kc said on 26/Jul/18
Rob I agree with your current listing forAB but not his peak listing.i have watched very closely his movie clips of Anand and namak halal to see if he was really 6-2 as you have listed him. But in all honesty I could not judge him to be more than 6-1. Current height probably 0.5inch less.
I have lot of faith in your listings but here I have to differ. I am a big height enthuast since child hood and good at judging heights too
Ebis said on 15/Jul/18
Rob, I think we need a separate page for Akshay Kumar. He is my favorite Hindi actor. I think he is not much shorter than Amithab. Not even full 2 inches.
Caaq said on 4/Jul/18
Editor Rob. Amitabh is now 6 feet 1 and with shoes standing he would cover 6 2 mark barely on a height board.
MAD SAM said on 20/Jun/18
Definitely was 188 cm in his prime, also used to give him elevator shoes to make him look 6’4” in movies, right now he’s 183 cm he’s lost almost 2” of height
Gracian said on 17/Jun/18
Rob, I proposes that you add the Indian pop singer Daler Mehndi to your website. He is listed by Google as 168 cm, but he does not look so short, you can see it next to Amitabh: Click Here
Click Here
You can also see him next to Sunil Shetty: Click Here

Daler looks more in the 5'7-8" range. Rob, will you add him to your website?
Editor Rob
I'm not so familiar with Daler, there are thousands of possible names to consider adding.

Stalin, you need to check your height again, 6'1 guysbwould edge John Abraham out.. All these claims of akshay Kumar and other actors and Indian citizens being over 6ft are false.. Aftab sridivani was said to be 6ft but admitted to be 5'10.5 on yaaron ki baarat. So Stalin, I don't believe your 6'1 claim sorry

Well Emmy I have met John Abraham and I myself is 6ft1 and John Abraham was taller than me
Emmy said on 11/May/18
Most Indian guys on this tread are inflating their personal heights to increase the heights of their national stars.. How can you say akshay Kumar is 6'1 barefoot when he is shorter than Sanjay dutt and john Abraham that aren't full 6 footers.. Indian guys shouldn't be taken for their words

If Chris Gayle is about 6 ft 4, then, Amithab could not be more than 6 ft 1 in that picture. Peak height may have been 6 2 but nothing more. But nowadays looks like 6 ft 1is rather than 6 ft 2 Solid. An important thing you have to realize is that the average height here in the Indian sub continent is as short as 5 ft 6 inches. That's why many people believed that he was 6 ft 4 or 5. A funny thing is often my mom and dad used to say he was a 7 footer which is ridiculous. (By the way my mom is only 4 9, dad is 5 4, and I'm 5 8.)
sach said on 14/Feb/18
Amitabh was no less than 6'2"may be fraction over it.Look at the pics with mohammed ali who is listed here 6'2.5".what do you say mr.rob?Do you upgrade him by 0.5 -0.75 inch?

peak a weak 6'2" current a weak 6'1"
Shivam said on 10/Feb/18
I would say that this legendry actor is a strong 6'0.5 or 6'1
Height Assessor said on 7/Feb/18
@raju- If look at the old movies of Shashi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan (like Deewar, Suhaag ,etc), there was at least a 5 inch height difference between them. If shashi was really 5' 10" that would make Amitabh as 6' 3" but Amitabh at peak was more like 6'1" or a very maximum of 6' 1.5". So that puts Shashi in the range of 5' 8" to 5' 8.5" max.
raju said on 28/Jan/18
Amitabh was 6'0.5 in his younger days.Rob compare him to shashi kapoor who was 5ft 10 .And shashi kapoor was sincere about his height.Even in movies he used to say 5ft 10.And if shashi kapoor is 5ft 10 amitabh is 6ft or 6.05 max
sach said on 4/Jan/18
In my opinion satrughan sinha was 6'0",vinod khanna was 5'11.5"and amitabh 6'2".

Alot of short Indians are commenting 6 ft 2 which is bs he was never this tall vinod khana is 5.11 and amitab is just an inch or 1.5 inch taller than him(at his peak) so no he was never 6 2

amitabhs height is 6 foot exactly,cause my uncle 6ft 2in towered over him
Rahul said on 30/Apr/17
Wasim Akram is rated 6' 2" & 6'3" by many sites. Having seen his photos & videos for over years and compared his height with that of many other cricketers & film stars, I am sure he could measure between 6' 2.25" to 6' 2.5". People who have watched him very closely in person say that Wasim looks a strong 6' 2", but does not quite make it to 6' 3".
HEight guy said on 25/Apr/17
Rob you should do one on Wasim Akram, a famous Pakistani cricketer. His height has been listed between 6 feet 2 to 6 feet 4 and he can look b/w them. He has the worst posture for height so it will test your skills. Here is a picture of him standing upright. The guy named Imran is certified 100% either 6 feet or 6 feet 1. How tall does that make Wasim?

Peterf said on 18/Apr/17
I thought that he was 6'3". But also I Imagined Other actors were too taller.I am not sure about his peak height,but his current height is around 6ft.Surely less than 6'1".Little shorter than 6ft also possible..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Mar/17
The difference couldn't be that big though regardless of the ground level. I'm not saying that he was 6ft4-5 but there's no denying that he looks it in that photo with Muhammad Ali who some argue was 6ft3

Rob, please have a look at the pic of Amitabh Bachchan with David Cameron. Does Amitabh look half inch or one inch taller? what would you say?

Click Here

Seeing this photo Amitabh definitely is 6' 1" if David Cameron is 6' 0.5'. is there a chance that david cameron is 6'?
Editor Rob
big Amitabh still looked near 6ft 1 with Cameron, who I think does clear 6ft and looks 6ft 0.5 most of the time.

Amitabh's peak height was 6'4" now he is 6'2.5".kabir bedi is listed 6'3" on this site.Amitabh was one inch taller than him.
Aza said on 16/Dec/16
He was the mutts in Deewar. Do think he was 6'2 peak and 6'0.5 today:
Andy said on 12/Dec/16
There is NO way Amitabh Bachchan is 6'1" I was right behind him in LAX. Matter of fact my cousin who is legit 6'1" towered over him. Amitabh was 6 feet tall WITH shoes on, There was ample time to make the comparison
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Oct/16
I thought he could give a 189-190cm impression at times on-screen. I'm not buying less than C peak
Rahul said on 29/Oct/16
Rob, its too generous of you to hv picked option C of Rampage's quotes. Amitabh never looked full 6' 2" (188 cm) even during his peak. Im not sure if he ever mentioned his height in cms (188). He may have said 6' 2", but he may not hv meant 188cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Oct/16
Rob, which of these would he have measured in his prime?

A) 191cm/189cm
B) 190.5cm/188.5cm
C) 190cm/188cm
D) 189.5cm/187.5cm
E) 189cm/187cm
Editor Rob
I wouldn't say more than his own claim of 188cm, C is practical
Rahul said on 10/Oct/16
He could be 6' 0.75" now

@rob in the Cannes photo, one can see Nicole Kidman tallest, how high you think she is considering Big B in shoes could be 6'2". If Nicole is 5'11" in flats is she like 6'3.5" in here?
Editor Rob
in some shots he actually could be 6ft 1-2 range barefeet.
Rahul said on 16/Sep/16
It is really amazing and surprising that being just 6' 1.25" to 6' 1.5" during his peak, how Amitabh looked so tall and gave an impression of being well over 6' 3" in his old movies. Seems movie cameras can simply throw up unbelievable and deceptive videos.
Champ said on 22/Aug/16
Im just going to say first I respect your opinion Rob . I feel Amitabh is exactly 6 foot my evidence is Leanardo Di Caprio is 5 ft 11.25 as you stated and amitabh looks the same height in my link.Please check this link Rob . Click Here
heightchecker34 said on 6/Aug/16
The great Amitabh Bachchan was 6'2 in his prime, and now has dropped to 6'1... might even be at the 184 cm mark today. One of the greatest actors in not only bollywood history, but the entire world. He has made so many contributions to the industry it would takes months to write them all down. He still walks with great posture and will be always affectionately known as "Big B".
Rahul said on 27/Jul/16
Hello Wasay, Abhishek is around 187.5 cms. He could be half an inch below Akram.
wasay said on 22/Jul/16
Rahul agreed , however would like to see how his son lines up with Akram I think they are almost same height
Rahul said on 19/Jul/16
Wasay, I agree with you that Wasim Akram is more than 188 cm. He is 189 cm.

But the photograph you have posted is not the ideal one for comparing and estimating the height of people in it
wasay said on 15/Jul/16
I think he is 187/188 still I have seen wasim akram and he is taller than me ...I am 188 cm

Rob can you please tell me the difference between amitabh and wasim akram ( tallest guy 2nd from left)

kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 2/Jun/16
Chris gayle himself claimed 6ft 4 in an Interview..although I believe he is more like 6ft 3.5..Amit ji looks 2 to 3 inches shorter than him so this is a pretty accurate listing.I don't know from where those 6ft 3 6ft 4 listings are coming for amit I said before my mom saw him up-close about 40yrs ago and chatted with him as well.He was surely 6ft 2 in his prime as my mom says but not as tall as me.

Amitabh Bachchan is 6'1. Same as Morgan Freeman.

The fact that Mr Bachan has a few inches on Leonardo, is pretty telling of Leo's height.

couldn't agree more

If we were to go by the picture then Ambitah was almost 6'5 which is impossible he was 6'2 max in his prime, which was considered to be very tall for an indian at that time and even today.
Rahul said on 10/Mar/16
Amitabh, the photograph that you hv posted here is affected by all the possible factors of still camera. Thats why Ali is looking much shorter than Bachchan. It is not the ground that is affecting their heights. Photographs at times can throw up unbelievable images and absolutely mislead.
Ali in his younger days was 187.5 cms to 188 cms. Bachchan's peak height was nothing more than 187cms
Houdaloth said on 19/Feb/16
Amitabh has claimed in a BBC Asian network interview that he is 6'2 which is true and was at his prime and peak. He has lost height since then and is most likely 6ft tall now.
People lose height from their 40s onwards and height needs to be rechecked.

Met arjun kapoor and he said was 6' in good shoes, so 5'10-5'11 barefoot and he is among the tallest actors, so u can imagine ho w short others are, dad met salmaan Khan in 1994 or so and he was 5'6 with decent footwear, 5'5 for real
Rahul said on 20/Dec/15
Amitabh is 6' 1" all right. But he is just half an inch over Kapil Dev. Watching multiple videos will confirm this. One or two still photographs will not give you the clear picture of difference between their heights. Kapil Dev is 6' 0.5" (184 cms). Azharuddin is 6' 0.5" too. Vengsarkar is 6' 0.75" (184.5 cms). I am very sure about these heights.
Abhishek Bachchan is nothing more than 6' 1.5" (187 cms)

Amitabh, I think was never a full 6' 2". Probably 6' 1.25" to 6' 1.5" during his young days. 6' 1" now
Comets said on 19/Dec/15
6'1 tops when he is not slouching, he is 73 years old now and i do believe he could have been 6'3 at his peak but he did lose height after an injury in a movie 40 years ago..he is here with Kapil Dev, confirmed 6 footer, both wearing same shoes Click Here and Amitabh does have an inch on him..
kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 17/Dec/15
About 40 yrs ago my mom saw him at the airport while doing security check and chatted with him.She says he was slightly taller than 6ft area in-charge by an inch or so. She also says he was not as tall as me so 6ft 1 to 2 during that time is possible.

Roger Federer is a Legit 6' 1" tall guy. In the photo with Amitabh, Amitabh looks 1 inch shorter. Present day Amitabh is 6' on the dot. In his young days he was 6' 1" to 6'1.5" max. His son is 6' 0.5". Akshay Kumar is 5' 10", Arjun Rampal & John Abraham are 5' 11". Ranbir Kapoor is 5' 10.5". Hritikh is 5' 10" max, could even be 5' 9.5". Shahrukh is 5' 6.5". Salman Khan is 5' 5". Aamir Khan is 5' 4".

I totally agree with the other heights but don't you think 5'5 ist a bit too low for Salman, he can easily look 5'6 or even 5'6.5 and Arjun might be 5'11.5

@teej yeah I agree with you. abishek is 6'2 too but probably not as strong as his dad just .25 shorter probably. hrithik never claimed 6'2, its silly fans saying hes 6'0, 6'2, refusing to accept hes 5'10 when that is still is a good height and for a indian a very good height lol still tall there.. hrithik has claimed slightly below 6 feet, he probably took 5'11 but its a morning measurement, other places he said hes 5'10. hrithik is 5'10 and everyone sane knows it.

silly indian fans, listen I like his films but he is not over 5'10. he is 5'11 when wakes up but drops to 5'10 after for the rest of the day, no way is he 6 feet.

Hritik roshan 6'2 lol are u mad? Anyways going to Amitabh, he defo was a strong 6'2, not taller or shorter. Im half indian my grandfather had the privilege of meeting amitabh bhachan in the early 70's and told me he was a very strong 6'2 then without a doubt. My grandad being 184cm (quite tall for an indian, especially back then) told me amitabh was comfartably taller than him i think peak amitabh was probably 189cm. Today probably about 185-186cm. Now to hritk roshan to me looks like a 5'10 guy tryna pass off as 6ft, but he's making it ridiculous now by claiming 6'2. He must be wearing heels or something. On the bollywood website he was listed as 5'10 then changing to 6'0 now 6'2 lol. This guys worse than vin diesel in the 'height claim' department

@ linke
Arjun Rampal is a legit 6 footer(183cm) but he does give the impression of being very tall though.He was max 2 inches taller than 5'9.25-5'10.25 range Sunil Shetty and a good inch(1.5 at times) taller than Akshay(5'10.25-5'10.75).He was also slighty taller than strong 5'11 (181-182cm).

Agree with you.Siddhart might be strong 5'11(181cm).
Aditya always looked 6'1 to me.
Sonu Sood is the only legit 6'2 actor of bollywood,he is clearly taller than strong 6'1 Abishek who is taller than his 6'0 father.
day said on 30/Jan/15
Aditya Roy Kapoor seems to be 6-6'1, he is taller than Siddharth Malhotra who is probably no more than 5'11. If you look at picture of them together, Aditya looks at least 1.5 inches taller. Oh and Sonu Sood/ Abhishek, tall guys, the same height as Big B or a little taller.
day said on 30/Jan/15
I think him and Arjun Rampal are the only legit 6 footers in Bollywood. The rest who claim to be 6 ft actually range from 5'9-5'11. Maybe John can be an exception, although I think he is a weak 6 foot.
linke said on 25/Jan/15
Rob, whats ur guess for Arjun Rampal? He looks nowhere near 6'2.

he could clear the 6ft mark, but yeah his own claim of 6ft 2 might be a bit much for him.

I know one thing for sure, Bollywood and some of the south indian cinema especially Telegu are far more obsesed with tall heroes than people with average height.

KROC said on 11/Oct/13
@ Arch Stanton I agree with you concerning Abhishek. I believe hé is 6'1.5 or 186cm-Thé same height Amitabh was in his prime. Obviously Amitabh has lost about an inch which makes him just shy of 6'1. You can look at pictures of Abhishek in his late teens with his father. They were virtually the same height.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Sep/13
I still think Abhishek looks around 6'2", but that Daggubatti bloke really did make him looks 6'1" range but I think Daggubattu looks nearer 6'3" than 6'2".
Arch Stanton said on 27/Sep/13
Rob would you agree that proportionally he can still give the illusion of being 6'2" range? Click Here He looks 189-90 in that photo to me. I know he's 185 tops nowadays but he really can still give the illusion of being taller.

Amitabh Bachchan's height 6.2 inch.
caaq said on 12/Sep/13
Like I said, one man's 6 footer is someone else's 5 -10. Depends on how you define height. How one measures, time of day, how one stands when being measured, etc. Watched Satyagraha yesterday. Amitabh wearing flat sandles looked about 3 inches taller than 5-9 ajay devgan in shoes. Both their hairs were similar and so negated any advantage to any one person. So I think 6-05 inches solid to 6-1 at most is a good assessment for amitabh. He used to be 6-2 even 7 or 8 years back. In ek ajnabee he was half an inch over arjun rampal, but here arjun rampal looked a bit taller in most scenes. So, I think Arjum rampal is a solid 6-1, wearing regular shoes or keds making him look 6-2, which made him look 1.5 to 1 inches taller than amitabh here. Also he looked about 4 inches taller than ajay devgan most of the time, sometimes 3 inches. this explains it.
Rahul said on 11/Sep/13

caaq said on 9/Sep/13
In addition to some more heights I sent in, I need to say something to everyone. Wno need to argue on differences in estimates of up to 1.5 inches or so, as it all depends on what method of measurement has been used and also time of day. Most heights I have listed are as these people appear during most part of the day. Neither when they are at their tallest when they wake up in the morning, nor after a very hard days work by which time people shrink by upto 2 to 3cm (0.7 to 1.2 inches). Also, depends on the height measurement mechanism. Majority of people press a scale down on their heads in a way that it slopes downwards from the crown of the head up to the wall. And the slope is at a 15 degree angle and people measure themselves often up to 1.5 inches lesser. I have recently proven 2 people who said they were 5-11 and 6 respectively to be 6feet and 6-1.5 in reality and to their own surprise. Perfect height measurement is when someone stands barefeet but feet together, nice and straight in front of a. Scale. Whatever height mark u cover (including normal about 1/2 inch hair, which is common for all), is the height that u are. Pressing a scale down, and at an angle below the head, will always subtract an inch from u. Many actors overstate their heights while some understimate themselves. That's why the tallest 6 footers and casually described 6-2 people are therefore the same.
caaq said on 9/Sep/13
Would like to add to the list below. Fardin khan: 5-10.5, ritesh deshmukh- 5-11, shreyash talpade: 5-8.5, aditya roy kapoor - solid perfect 6 (loose 6-0.5), sonu sood- solid 6-2 (casual 6-3), emran hashmi: solid 5-7 (casual 5-8), niel nitin mukhesh : solid 5-8.5 (casual 5-9)

But let me clarify- these heights refer to people's original barefeet heights, standing straight but comfortably, but not stretching the spine, measured up to the highest point of the head:amitabh-6-1now, abhishek -6-1.5, kunal kapoor: 6-3, shahrukh khan:5-8,salman khan: 5-7; amir khan: 5-6, saif khan:5-9,jackie shroff: 6-0, sanjay dut:5-11, ajay.

Rob, 6'1" for Amitabh is very less. He looks as tall as 6'2" Indian Cricketer Yuvraj Singh in just about every still and video with him.
Also what do you think could be Abhishek Bachchan's height?
Any way, can you include indian cricketers in 'celebheights'? There are lot of them in the range of 6'1" to 6'4". You will have lot of responses from indian cricket fans.
Rahul said on 15/Aug/13
Amitabh is certainly 6' 1.75" to 6' 2" even today. He looks as tall as Yuvraj Singh who is a certain 6' 2".
Abhishek is around 6' 2.25" or even 6' 2.5"

Why are indians in india so small? Im indian in the uk and im 6'1 not many people look up to me im just a little over average
KROC said on 10/Aug/13
I think 6ft is reasonable now. That would make his son Abhishek what 6'1, 6'1.5?
Ankit said on 2/Aug/13
Amitabh is 6ft 1inch only
prasad said on 29/Jul/13
Amitabh bhachan is 6ft 3 inch
AMR said on 7/Jul/13
Anushka is 5'9" and with 5" heels she stood at 6'2" that is why she is looking taller than nowdays Amitabh of 6'
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jul/13
Rob, I thought you used to have him at 6'0.5"? I agree that he did look near 6'2" in his prime and can still look around 6'1" today.
Editor Rob
about over a year ago I did, but thought he might have still been near 6ft 1

@Engineer- Its a Good Picture you have shared. Anushka Sharma is 5' 8" and the heels she is wearing is 4". She is 6' with the heels in the picture. Amitabh Bacchan is waering 1 inch shoes and is not standing straight and both appear to be of the same height. I would say nowadays Amitabh is 6' and with 1" shoes he is 6' 1".
Engineer said on 19/Jun/13
some reality check, look at this picture with Anushka, agreed she is in heels probably giving 3" advantage making he close to 6'. AB is also has at least 1" of shoe, which proves his current height is just about 6'

Daniele said on 12/Jun/13
Elizabeth Debicki is one of the tallest women I've ever seen. In that photo she's in heels for shure. In other pics they looked almost the same. Debicki is 6'1.5 and Bachchan also or half inch shorter. Consider DiCaprio wears well heeled shoes...

The tall Amitabh Bachchan looks so tiny in front of western people. Elizabeth Debicki towers him by good 4-5 inches.

@honest, i agree with your observations

@Rob, Please make two more pages on Arjun Rampal and John Abraham.
Bindi said on 25/Jan/13
@honest, you've got most of them just right. Amitabh is 6'0.5 on a good day and if you look closely Jr Bachchan is always wearing cowboy boots with atleast 1.5 inch heels, so you can calculate how tall he really is. Its true, the only reason Amitabh looks unusually tall is cause most actors in India are of short stature.

Shahrukh Khan is 5' 7" Max. Salman Khan is 5' 5.5", Aamir Khan 5' 4.5"

Dear Rob- Amitabh was never a legit 6'2, not even in his young days. He was 6' 1.5" at best (could even have been 6'1"). He was very slim came with actors who were mostly in the 5'6 to 5'10 range making him look even taller. At present he is 6' 0.5" at best, some times he even looks like 6' on the dot.
Bollywood actors are not as tall as their fans think:
Salman Khan 5' 5.5" (wears elevator shoes)
Shahrukh Khan 5' 7" (wears normal shoes 1 inch, though could wear 1.5 inch heeled shoes some times)
Aamir Khan 5' 4.5"
John Abraham 5'11.5" to 11.75" (Not a legit six footer)
Akshay Kumar 5' 10.75"
Sanjay Dutt (5' 10.5" peak was 5'10.75 to 5'11 max)
Jackie Shroff 5'11" (Peak 5' 11.25 to 11.5 max)
Anil Kapoor 5' 9" legit (same at peak, not lost any height to date)
Abhishek Bachchan 6'1" legit to 6'1.5" at most.
Saif Ali Khan 5'7"
Shahid Kapoor 5' 7"
Sunny Deol 5' 7 to 7.5" (Peak 5' 7.5")
Bobby Deol 5' 10.5"
Dharmendra 5' 7" (Peak 5' 7.5")
Shatrugun Sinha 5' 10" (Peak 5' 10.5)
Vinod Khanna 5' 10" (Peak 5' 10.5 to 10.75")
Arjun Rampal 5' 11.5" legit
Ranbir Kapoor 5' 11.5 max (5' 11" solid)
