He looks 1.5-2 inches taller than 6'1" Roger Moore. His height Range is 6'2.5"-6'3". I think Nikita Dheer and Arunoday Singh both are 6'3". What do you think, Rob?

I have to say that his height is listed wrongly here(first I have seen on this site)

He never looks more than 6.25 even at his peak..and looks to have wore 1.5 inch heels in earlier days

Both Kabir bedi and Vijay amritraj two Indians who played minor roles in the film octopussy are 6-2 guys. Kabir lists himself as 6-3.5 and Vijay is listed as 6-4 . Classic case of Indian celebs, one a model the other a sports man,following the '2in rule' of Hollywood - height exaggeration.
I distinctly remember, Vijay was mentioned at 6-2 during his tennis playing days I wonder whether you can take ANY celebs listed or claimed at height at face value !

6ft 0.5 barefeet and 6ft 2 with shoes.He could be 6ft OR less now because of his age. Compare him with anil kapoor and amithab

Google has currently listed this guy at 6'2

Genuinely tall Punjabi at 6'3 peak excluding turban. Today 6'1.75.

Rob,
6' 3" (191cm) for Kabir Bedi is simply not in line with Celebheights' reputation of being spot on.
He does not look taller than 6' 2" celebs. Please revisit his height or atleast mention his current height if you really believe that his peak height was 6' 3"

Certainly a more honest 6ft3 than Abhishek Bachanan!
Arch Stanton said on 28/Oct/16
6 ft 3 flat is reasonable, but yeah I think 6'3.5 might have been more a morning measurement.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/16
Really Rob?


I thought he could easily look that beside Roger Moore. Probably a bit shorter than this today though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/16
Rob, could that official website listing be closer for his peak?


He looked 6ft5ish w/h the turban in Octopussy. I hardly recognise him from this picture. He looks more like a large James Lipton!
Editor Rob: I think the official listing is just a little bit high, although I am sure at times he could pull off looking near it.
Rahul said on 9/Apr/16
Rob,
Kabir Bedi is nowhere near 6'3"
It is exaggerated. Pls down grade him to 6' 2.25"
Rifle said on 30/Mar/16
Rob,
Kabir Bedi's nephew claims he is 6'10", do you think he looks that range with this girl athlete who I know is 5'9" tall?

Really sorry to disturb you at this hour.

Regards
Editor Rob: there's certainly a possible foot difference there
Rahul said on 15/Aug/15
Hi Rob, Any second thought on Kabir Bedi's height? I believe he is no more than 188.5" ie 6' 2.25"
AlexMahone said on 7/Feb/15
What are you talking about guys? Really? I hate the downgrading behaviour of some people here...
First in Octopussy, Kabir Bedi is a clear 191cm compared to Sir Roger.

Second, look at this: Click Here

He played a small assasin role in the 4th season of Knight Rider. Compared to Hasselhoff (and he cheats with his hair and the cowboy boots) Kabir Bedi is a clear 6'3-6'3.5. Rob has right.

I'm not buying that, 6'2.5 peak and 6'2 now. In his own resume 6'2 is mentioned and not 6'3. Saw a coupla old movies in which he only looked tall, he didnt tower over everyone who were average range guys. In old Indian movies 5'8 was considered as average. At 6'3 I tower over a large crowd and this guy does'nt look that big. Roger moore must be 6'1 in octopussy but no more.
Rahul said on 24/Dec/13
He is nowhere near 6' 3". May be 6' 2.25"/188.5cm at the most
avi said on 9/Sep/13
6'2ish next to moore
caaq said on 1/Sep/13
I think he was at least 6-3 in octupussy as comparing eye levels he was an inch and half taller than roger moore without considering the turban. And back then lifts weren't really in use.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Aug/13
Rob, how tall do you think Louis Jordain was?
Arch Stanton said on 18/Feb/13
Was the turban wearing lifts?? 2 inches?? Watch the film, looks a clear 6'3" next to Roger Moore.Like Amitabh this guy would be happily accepted as an Indian king, agreed Khalid that he has all of those qualities.
punjabi said on 4/Nov/12
In octpussy Kabir Bedi was wearing a turban which gave him 2 inches extra in height. Kabir Bedi is 6ft 2 in height!!
.
Khalid said on 9/Feb/12
agreed. absolutely. not only is he tall & broad but charming & good looking too ... & his voice.. ??????.. well, ...... he is simply the great. Mr. Bachchan is not as tall as him, but he is considered, may be reflecting the fact that Mr. Bachchan's height is exceptional in the area he came from. Though Mr. Bedi is tall than average, but for people from Punjab & Haryana difference is not that huge.
Shaun said on 7/Dec/11
See him walking down the corridor with Roger Moore in Kamal Khan's palace to feast on the sheep's head!, does look a solid 6'3".
namit khanna said on 10/Nov/11
No he was def 3-3.5 taller than roger moore in the movie.Roger moore that time was 6'2inches and kabir bedi 6'4-6'4.5 inches.
There is a misconception about Indian people.Indians are one of the talles people.In punjab and haryana the average height is 5'10
In metros the average height of a male is 5'8 as compared to to 5'6.5 height in rest of India.
avi said on 7/Nov/11
he is 6'2 because only inch taller than Roger Moore in Octopussy if that. Not sure where Rob got this listing from.

"Exceptionally tall for an indian" WTF??

Excuse me?

You have never been to Punjab or other parts of Nth India have you?

Average height in India is about 5 ft 4 for a male. He's nearly a foot taller than the national average. 6 ft might be common amongst Punjabis but claiming 6'3" or 6'4" is common for any Indian is a load of BS. Bedi is borderline very tall even by western standards. Look at Bollywood. The only actor anywhere close to 6'3" is Abhishek Bachchan. Kabir Bedi was even taller than Amitabh Bachcan who most in India regarded as a giant and kingly.

SHaun,the guy's telling the truth.Average height in rural india is 5'4-5'5 due to nutrition issues and in cities its 5'7.But since 70% of population is based in villages,people tend to think a height of 6 would be gigantic.Not true.

Unfortunately,very rarely would you see someone from the rural areas make big in bollywood or entertainment industry.Most of them are from cities and yeah punjab has the biggest overall average at 5'8-5'9

He is an impressively tall and wide shouldered guy.
Doug said on 4/Jul/09
Must have been the turban that gave a taller illusion because he could have passed for 6'4".
Doug said on 4/Jul/09
He was easily 2 inches taller than Roger Moore. He looked very tall in many scenes in Octopussy I would have guessed he was between 6'3" and 6'4" which is exceptionally tall for an Indian. 6'3.5" is his official height that looks about right to me. To me he looks 191-192cm. Legit 6'3" anyway.
Anonymous said on 12/Jan/09
I watch a couples of times Octopussy and he had no more than 1.5 inch taller than 6'1 Roger Moore.
luca said on 5/Jan/08
in this pic he's near the italian showman valerio staffelli(1,90 sure);1,91 can be exact.

I saw him in the italian reality "isola dei famosi" and he was taller than the spanish model sergio muniz(1,87) (ps-he was barefoot;sergio muniz had shoes).
AshnarLynx said on 19/Oct/07
He was also listed as 6'5. Must say he looked terribly big in Octopussy.
mario said on 25/Sep/06
