5'11"! Impossible. Sunil Shetty is 5'9" tall at barefoot and 5'9.5" with flat shoes. He is an inch shorter than Akshay Kumar who is 5'10" or 5'10.5" at barefoot and 5'11" with shoes. Rob, Submit is not even 5'10" 5'9.5" at peak.

He just can’t be the listed height, The Average guess is more correct! he’s 5’9-9.5” @most.

Rob, 5’9.5” is closer?
Editor Rob
I don't rule out weak 5ft 10 but I just ain't as sure on 5ft 9.5
Bob Jones said on 25/Sep/18
I have seen some of the 90s movies. He looked the same height as Nasureddin Shah in Mohra and Takkar. Nasureddin Shah seems to be in the 5'8" to 5'9" range, so Shetty's original height(before the lifts) should be around there. Same thing with Ajay Devgan.

Also, Sunil looked the approximately the same height as Saif Khan in the 90s.
Siddharth Dwivedi said on 27/Aug/18
THis guy never ever looked more than 5'9.5 to me...shorter than akshay who claims 5'11
Lennynile said on 4/Aug/18
Strong 5 feet 9 (176 cm) more believable. I have watched Phir Hera Pheri movie and looks a comfortable 2 inches shorter than Akshay Kumar.
AJ said on 10/Jul/18
IMDB has him at 5'7.5" lol. Honestly anywhere between 5'9.5"-5'10" is believable for him. I think you should add akshay kumar at 5'11".
Debojit said on 21/Jun/18
I'll make a small correction here....I'll give Sunil Shetty 176 cms and Akshay Kumar 179 cms and Pooja Batra 183 cms. And I think Pooja Batra is taller than Bollywood actors like Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan and even Sanjay Dutt also
Debojit Mukherjee said on 1/May/18
Sunil is 5'9 1/4" and Akshay is 5'10 1/2". Pooja Batra is also 5' 9" but she was wearing heels in the movie Bhai that's why she was looking taller than Sunil...

Editor Rob
5ft 9.5 might be the lowest I'd go with, but I've seen him look near 5ft 10 with others...overall he might be a guy who could be classed as weak 5ft 10.

You can make a case for him looking sub 5ft 10 and be a guy adding a full 2 inches to his height.

Vivek (who u said was 179cm) is a solid inch or so on him, Ajay Devgan is listed 5’9” on most sites and looks the same height as Sunil. There is no chance Sunil was ever 5’10” even at peak!
99% of the time, he always wears these don elevator shoes which is giving me a doubt that he’s 5’10” and I wouldn’t be surprised if he was going with the 2 inch rule (giving the fact he claims this precise 5’11.5”!).
He’s alot closer to 5’9” than 5’11”.

Rob, Maybe 176 or 177 should b closer?
idol_11 said on 7/May/17
How can Sunil Shetty be 5'10, when Pooja Batra completely dwarfs him in the video songs from the movie Bhai (1997) shared below? She is 5'11, he can't be more than 5'8 (he's much shorter than her even though he's wearing lifts and she is wearing flats).
turb said on 27/Mar/17
hey rob, please find out akshay kumar's height. It is controversy in india, beacause he appears taller and sometimes average
Peterf said on 26/Mar/17
Here People are downgrading Bobby deol's height.He is definitely not less than 5'11.Akshay is definitely less than bobby deol, not by big margin mostly be by .5 inches.Akshay also not less than 5'10. 5".But I guess Bobby deol is 5'11.5 and Akshay 5'11. Editor Rob why you are not putting Akshay Kumar's Height.He is also a Super Star and much bigger star than most of the bollywood actors listed here..
Aza said on 17/Oct/16
Another lift wearer. Met him personally . 5'9 maximum standing tall.
Jonah flint said on 1/Oct/16
Today he might be 5feet9.5. And he is an amazing actor.
Another5'8_guy said on 24/Sep/16
Akshay Kumar always had a bit over him. He would have been a 5'10 early in his days, but now looks nothing more than a 5'9.5".
heightchecker34 said on 9/Aug/16
A flat 5'10 guy... no more, no less. Easily in the top 50 greatest bollywood actors category. Always looked an inch shorter than 5'11 guys such as Akshay Kumar and Sanjay Dutt.
munna said on 21/Jun/15
Sunil Shetty is 5'9.25" & Akshay Kumar is approx 5'11" barefoot. With Shoes Sunil shetty is 5'11" & Akshay is 6'1"
John said on 26/May/15
Just saw Officer,there's not even one scene where 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.

zarb said on 6/Feb/15
5'9-5'9.5 most likely. If you look at the movie Mohra, scene when Akshay Kumar starts a fight with Sunil after accusing him of being a criminal in Raveena's house, Akshay looks about 2 inches taller than him.

Bobby Deol ???
John Abraham 5'11.5"
Hrithik Roshan 5'10.5"

Arjun Rampal 5'11.75"
Ranvir Singh 5'9"
Sharukh khan 5'7.5"
Salman Khan 5'7"
Siddhart Malhotra ????

Pretty much agree with your every estimate but how come 5'9.25 Imran Khan is like 2 inches taller than Anushka and Deepika but 5'9 Ranvir Singh barely an inch?
@John Abraham 5'11.5
He was exactly 2 inches taller than 5'9 Nargis Fakhri but 181 cm is possible.

Realist said on 5/Dec/14
@John U, mr.rashid and i r probably the only decent judges of bollywood (with the exception of Arch Stanton as he is not Indian probably). We 3 should convince Rob to make more pages of bollywood actors and sportsmen. As for Akshay i think 178 or 5'10.25 is a good call.
John said on 30/Nov/14
@Realist
I agree with you.I think Akshay is arround 5'9-5'10 but wears heels,that make him look close to 6'0(5'11 mostly).
In this pic Bobby is looking arround an inch taller and he is probably not more than 5'11(5'10 actually).
Click Here
Just compare him to 5'9 Prakash Raj in this pic.Akshay is wearing flip flops that give arround 1cm? and Prakash is wearing dress shoes that give 1.25 inches/3cm.So if Akshay really was 5'11,he would still be taller than him by a good inch(181-178=3cm=1.25inches) but he is an inch shorter instead.So that means he is barely 5'9(175cm).And if he was 5'11 he wouldn't be towered by 6'2 Sonu Sood.

Realist said on 13/Nov/14
@John
What about this one then:

We cannot judge random pics. We need pics like the ones Rob gets. But i agree with you 75 %. If u look carefully Akshay is not wearing socks. He could have a possible large lift. But shoes don't look over sized.
John said on 2/Sep/14
Look at these photos
Click Here
Akshay is 5'11,Bobby is 5'10-5'10-5 and Sunil is 5'9.Irfan Khan is listed as 6'0 on almost every site but he is actually no taller than 5'8.
Realist said on 6/Aug/14
Spot on Rob. Akshay and him are approx the same. He is a tallish guy for bollywood. Akshay is at 179-80 this guy is 177-78. @mr.rashid south asians dont exaggerate by 2 inches but more. 5'10 guys say 6'1. What bull**** ? Guys my height 171-72 claim 5'10-5'11. 5'5-5'6 guys claim 5'8. So literally all my friednds claimed height is more than mine. Except that in reality at least 60 per cent of them are lesser. Rob make a page for Akshay. Also did u find stuff on Hunter Parrish.

Sunil 5'11'' what a load of crap. I met him when I went to India years ago and I was at least 1 inch taller than him and I'm 5'10''. Sunil is 5'8.5'' to 5'9'' max.
Height Lawyer said on 19/Jul/11
Sunil is alot shorter than Akshay who is 5'11'' to 6'0'' max FACT. How on earth is it possible that Sunil is 5'11''??????? I saw him when he is was shotting a movie in the late 90's, he was wearing flat sandles as was no more than 5'9''. Bollywood ALWAYS LIES about the stars heights, even the actors and actresses themselves. Sunil is 5'8.5'' to 5'9'' ABSOLUTELY MAX.
anon said on 25/Jun/11
Sunil shetty is 5'11 because in the song maahi ve from the movie kaante when sunil and sanjay dutt are together walking u can tell the difference in the height clearly 2 inches apart sanjay dutt who is 6'1

I saw the vide posted by anonymous. Pooja is indeed an amazon. I watched the video closely & Pooja Batra is not wearing any heels, but sunil shetty was wearing shoes that give atleast 3 to 4 inch extra height. Still he could only to her shoulders. Wonder if Pooja was wearing 5 inch heels & sunil shetty in flats. Sunil would've reached only to her chest.

Regarding the comment about height of wax models in Madam Tussaud's, I doubt if Madam Tussaud's heights are that correct. Here is a snap of Salman with his wax model. I think the wax model is bigger than Salman Khan although the ratios are fine.

guys how can sunil be 6, there is no sense in 5'11.5, he is just an average heighted person, if he wud be 6 then why does he look half of john in lakeer and half of dino in rakht

He's not a short 5"7-5"9. I'm 13 and I'm 5"10... I don't believe I am taller than him. I would put him as 5"11. It's ok if he says he is 5"11.5, because he deserves to add some cm to his height, just like every Hollywood actor.
Khurram said on 26/Sep/08
I met him once in dubai.I think he is 5.9 because i am 5.8 and he was 1 inch taller then me.
anonymous said on 13/Aug/08
Please watch the movie Bhai 1997 and you can conclude that Sunil Shetty is a short guy. In this movie Pooja Batra towers over him everywhere. Especially in one song, she looked like an amazon. So Sunil Shetty should be only 5'7.
Mr Money said on 30/Jul/08
Rob should lower this guy, his current listing is ridiculous. There have been many ppl who have seen him in person and say he is 5'9 or less. If I was the interviewer in that chat I would've burst out laughing at 5 feet 11....11 and a half.

To all guys who says that they have seen some stars and say that he was looking shorter than me..U need to be corrected.Look if two person are standing of same height, than one will feel that his partner is shorter than him.This come becoz of visual defects.

It'z funny how this dude almost managed to come up to John Abraham's height in Lakeer, and knowing John is 6 feet tall, Sunil looked like 5'10.5" (thankz to those bootz he had on). Otherwise, 5'9 MAX for Sunil!

With good stature...a strong 5'9. Not bad. He's taller than the average male in India..i.e. 5'7

he's definitely not 5'11.5!
i've seen this man lots of times,twice in parties and once at the airport,he's exactly my height,and i'm 5'10.he's definitely not 5'11.not anywhere close to that.
S4M said on 8/Jan/08
@ Farzaan: YES!! The ground level is flat. Do you see it having bumps or uneven flooring?? It's a FLAT, TILED, FLOOR! Sunil is just standing in a position like he pissed in his pants (i.e. knees bent). This is solid proof that he is not the 5'11.5" that he claims. He's a good inch and a half shorter than Vivek who is 5'10.
S4M said on 6/Jan/08
Farzaan: it doesn't take a fool to see the difference between Shetty and Oberoi. What are talking about "ground disadvantage"??? It's a normal flat surface, and Shetty still looks like a shrimp! Give or take, Shetty is 5'9 and no more! Vivek is 5'10.

I'd personally knock out Sunil Shetty after seeing this photo. He claims to be 5'11.5 when he can barely pass off for 5'9. Vivek looks something like 5'10.5. Click Here

Sunil Shetty is 1-2 inch taller than Shahid kapur(5ft 7in), that makes him
5ft 9in at max. He looks even shorter in movies like Gopi-Kishan, etc.

He wants to fool ppl, we are not dumb n blind to accept him as 5ft 11.5

et al said on 5/Sep/07
Hi guys Sunil Sheety at the most is 5'7",most of these indian actors are about that height which include Salman as well,only Shahrukh and Sunny are 5'10" or more.
Indian actors and actresses ALWAYS exagerrate their height by 2-3 inches.
JamX said on 10/Aug/07
He's short. He always looks like a standard 5'10. Maybe even less, but I'll leave him at 5'10.
SurReal Thinker said on 13/Jul/07
Sunil Shetty, I'd say, is just scraping on 5'10. I'd even round him down to 5'9.5 but I'll give him some credit (even though he sucks).
Anonymous said on 6/Jul/07
Nice to see you're actually dreaming about things "tallboy"! lol! you sure you're not some 5'9 delusionary kid with a bat stuck up his rear?
tallboy said on 6/Jul/07

Faraz said on 5/Jul/07
well u know what i think
suniel is non higher than 5'9.5
Kiana said on 3/Jul/07
Ewww, Sunil Shetty is not only a lier but terrible looking. Anyways, I say he's 5'10 at the most. He looks about 2 to 2.5 inches or so shorter than Akshay Kumar in Phir Hera Pheri and in Dhadkhan.
666 said on 20/Jun/07
Being slightly less than 6 feet doesn't mean you're now considered short. In most cases I have a hard time telling the difference between a guy at 6 ft and a guy of 5'11 or 5'11.5 unless they stand side by side and I realllllyyy focus in on the 1 inch difference!
Kiana said on 7/Jun/07
Hold on there a second amigo. First of all, No way in hell is John 5'11 (cuz he's 6 feet tall or 6'0.5. Secondly, Hrithik Roshan is 5'11, because compared to John Abraham, he's 1.5 inches shorter; that means Hrithik is 5'11. No offence dude, but you must have met some guy who slightly resembled John Abraham..lol!
Anonymous said on 6/Jun/07
Now i'll tell u i met john in mumbai. He is 5'11...isnt dat shocking !! The fact is he wears boots which makesd him look like a 6ft hunk. bt actually his lean look n the heels create the magic !!
Kasim said on 13/May/07
I practically agree with "anonymous". Besides, what the hell are u talking about faizan ajmal?? Ur obviously too stupid to believe that sunil shetty's got muscle...he looks more fat that muscular. I agree with the rest, he is 5'9 to 5'10 max. Therefore "M.FAIZAN AJMAL ****" he is a SHORT MAN!
m.faizan ajmal said on 11/May/07
i think he is a tall man.he does look a short man in camera screen.but in reality i think he is a normal tall man.his body and muscles are heavy,"thats why "he seems to be short person.for example:Arnold schwazenegger of hollywood.he is also a very tall man but because of a heavy body he does not look a tall man in camera screen or films e.t.c.i think that is enough for this topic.There is no more doubt for sunil's height and close this chapter
there is no more question is required for this pupose.ok.best of luck.

Guyz guyz, just look at the picture posted by Aryan on Sept/29/06 with Suniel and Sanjay. They are both wearing sport shoes, standing on the same ground level and looking straight ahead (side-by-side). It shouldn't be that hard to tell that Sanjay is 6'1 and Suniel is a clear-cut 5'10. He seems to be a bit stawky, which makes him seem short. But just look at the leg proportions and all doubts are cleared.
Anonymous said on 14/Mar/07
i saw him in films he is no more than 5.9 . as he is to small than akshay and sanjay dutt.
varun said on 14/Mar/07

Mohan Singh said on 13/Jan/07
i dont think that sunil is 5'11" i'm 5'10" an half and he seemed shorter than me i met him when he was in jodhpur. and he is not that big either i'd say he is 5'9"
youngbutgood said on 7/Dec/06
Yo rob change this guys height dude. Sanjay, the guy he is standing beside, is 6"-6"1. Looks 5"9 to me.
Samby said on 5/Dec/06
That pic by Aryan is pretty conclusive about Shetty not being 5'11.5" as he claims. He's standing right next to Sanjay who's 6'1" at the most and on the same ground level. I think the editor should downgrade his height to no more than 5'9".
Jatinder Singh said on 12/Oct/06
Sanjay Clearly is a big giant as compared to Shetty. But shetty is looking much smarty than sanjay. I thing his height will be around 180 cm.
Aryan said on 29/Sep/06
Yet another picture. This time, Sanjay Dutt and Sunil Shetty. WOW! It's pretty obvious that Sanjay is a clear "GIANT" in comparison to Shetty. Looking at this, I'd estimate Shetty to be around 5'9.5 to 5'10 (and that's being generous)! I'd say Sanjay Dutt is a MINIMUM 6'1 and a half -- nearing on 6'2.

I actually disagree. In fact, both John and Abhishek are leaning slightly, however if they were to stand perfectly straight, I doubt it would bring make any difference. Like I've said before, Abhishek is almost looking over the top of John's head, which makes him clearly 2-2.5 inches taller to John. John is pretty average (6 and a half feet would be an accurate estimate). And coming back to the shoes; in any out-door scene shot in Dhoom, has John worn any other kind of footwear that would contradict otherwise? Especially in a scene like this, would John be wearing slippers, honestly? Whereas Abhishek would be wearing workboots. I highly doubt it.
bobby said on 9/Sep/06
Not much can be derived from the pic of John Abraham. If you had noticed john is leaning a bit and is actually behind (slightly) Abhishek a bit. Addl, we dont know what shoes they are wearing. john is wearing a no sleeves tshirt so i dont think he would be wearing a leather shoe while abshihek could be. This is pic does not prove much.
John is almost 6"1 and i would give abhishek a 1 inch advantage over john which would make him almost or exactly 6"2.
PKB said on 5/Sep/06
In Chocolate, Sunil Shetty's character was mentioned to be 5'9" tall. I don't remember exactly how it was mentioned, but you have to watch the film to see that.
Aryan said on 4/Sep/06
Just recently, I found a photograph of John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan posing while filming Dhoom. If you follow my method of calculating height (i.e. Eye level), you can clearly see a 2 to 2.5 inch difference between the two. Therefore, taking to consideration that Abhishek is 6'3, John would be no more than 6 and a half feet tall (acurate). Though John does state his height as 6'1 (not much of a difference -- quite believable). Now, take the picture below and draw a straight line from the lower part John's eye, and you'll see it meets Abhishek along the tip of his nose. With that in mind just work your way up about 2.5 inches. It is PRETTY accurate I'd say!

Samby said on 4/Sep/06
Please don't say Sunil Shetty is 5'11" by comparing him to Sanjay Dutt bcoz not only is Dutt 47 years old (and must have lost atleast 0.5 inch from his 6'1" inch frame), he also has this huge slouch which is clearly visible whether he is on screen or off it. That leaves Shetty no more than 5'9" in the "Dus" photo.
P.S said on 29/Aug/06
From personal experience i would say abhishek is about 6 and shetty 5'9. look i have nothing against these guys and i don't really care about height but i don't want to boost nor under estimate anyone. abhi may look taller because of his skinny frame, well not that skinny, but that's the way indian guys are, slim. the truth is that no actor declairs their real height due to the fact they will always be seen in shoes which adds 1 to 2 inches, so the urge to lies is way to high. that's why monu says 5'11 because if you were to measure the person your self barfoot and press all their hair down it may come to that, or may not, but until someone does this we can only judge by our instinct and by what is advertised.
Goliath said on 21/Jul/06
Monu,you dont know anything about Height dude. Abishek is no way in hell 5"11. Even in that pic and other pic compared with J. Abraham he towers over all of them(including Zayed Khan).Abishkek looks to be pretty tall at 6"2 at least as Tushar said maybe 6"2.5 tops but no way in hell 5"11. Plus he Abishkek is kind of bend while Shetty is standing straight. A. covers the whole frame lol.

ha. take a look at this. does it suggest anything 'bout "king" khan's height. Click Here
stevo said on 18/Jun/06
anyway there is a telugu actor venu who stands at 6"6 (198 cm)...thats micheal jordan's height...he definitely looks odd on screen
tushar said on 8/Jun/06
monu u idiot, that is not two inches; that is more like four inches. sunil shetty comes to abhishek's ear. which makes abhishek atleast 6'1" if shetty is 5'9". besides, shetty is a bit taller than 5'(, maybe 5'10.5" as he is nearly as tall as the 6'1" giant sanjay dutt. son abhishek is easily 6'2". what u got 2 say now?
monu said on 25/May/06
Ok budy your telling me that abhishek is 6'2 your crazy cause if Shetty is said to be 5'9 max then in this pic

Click Here

the beginning of DUS Abhishek only looks a bit taller then the rest while looking a max of 2 inches taller then Shetty. Zayed and Sunjay look same. remmember this is the same pic your talkig about. so Abhishek max 5'11 thats final.
tushar said on 28/Apr/06
sunny man, get ur facts right. ur not giving any valid reasons; you're just staed what u think. 6'2" is not standard height; that is tall. the average indian male height is 5'6" and even in tall countries like england and canada, it's only 5'11". read my point about 4 heroes in dus and u'll understand.
sunny said on 25/Apr/06
abhishek and amitabh both r same 6"2 inches which is standered height i think and sunil says that he is 5"11 no he is only 5"9 inches and hritiks height is not actual also he is only about 5"10 inches originally.john has actual height 6"1 inches becoz he is model and i think there is no actual height of bollywoods hero axcept mode who says about his actual height
Tushar said on 25/Apr/06
monu, compare the four heroes of dus in the beginning after the title track has finished, these 4 get out of a car and walk together. abhishek is the tallest, followed by zayed, then there's sanjay dutt who is roundabout the same as suniel shetty. sanjay dutt is credited as 6'1", so doesn't that make annaa atleast 5'11". abhishek is easily 6'3". compare him to john abraham, 6'1"; abhi is a lot taller. hrithik is around 6'0" as he was roundabout big b's height in k3g. big b was not 6'5" in his prime, he was 6'3" which is what ppl still believe him to be. but he's probably 6'1.5".
james bond said on 21/Mar/06
i had met him.i am 5.11 and he tells he is 5.11....1.5 but whan he was standing with me he looked shorter tyhan me. he is actually 5.8
Monu said on 18/Mar/06
Ravi are you crazy! abhishek bachhan is no way 6'2. always when he is see with his father, amitabh bachchan, he is the same height as him. but knowing that his father is over 60 he has lost maybe .5 inch. as i've said in many other posts, and many people have agreed with me, that amitabh bachchan is no more than 6' now, maybe 6'.5 in his prime. my proof is when i met him in new delhi about 7 years abo with my brother who is 6' barefoot. he stood next to him while they both saw who was taller as a joke, since he was 15 at the time and 6 barefoot is really tall for and indian man and he was just 15. they were the same height except amitabh's hair was a little more puffy than his, didn't make a difference though. knowing this his son is only 6 barefoot mabey a tad less, but lets just say 6. that leaves rani less than 5 which she looks, more like 4'10.5 or something. you can tell when all these indian actors stand next to women from north america, who are 5'4-5'5 range, they just don't seem like there acting heights. as for my brother who is now 6'3 and when he stands next to my mother who is 5'4 he seems about head taller and bit more. So no way in hell is Hrithik roshan 6'2 just go to his name on this site to more info.
lia said on 1/Dec/05
sunny deol is about 5'10, 5'5 my mum has met him and took a photo with him, in it the height difference between them is about the same difference bewtween my parents, my dad is 5'9 making deol atleast 5'9-5'10
gambit said on 24/Nov/05
he is 5'8
Ravi said on 23/Nov/05
Akshay Kumar says he's 6'1" and he does look like it. Hrithik Roshan is probably 6'2" as well. Refer to K3G when he is standing next to Big B. Sunil Shetty has to be 5'9" max. Sunny Deol, on the other hand, is quite tall, about 5'11" I'd say. His brother Bobby looked like a giant in Gupt, Badal and Humraaz. Hard to believe that he's only 6'0. By the way, who's taller- Big B or Abhishek Bachchan?
Jack said on 12/Nov/05
lol one thin for sure about bollywood actors they take 1 foot to be 30 cm...where it is 30.5 cm.....so if they go 180cms.....they go on sayin they are 6 feet...which gets overstated by an inch...plus with their boots.....they go on another 2 inch....thus...guys ure seeing a clear 3 inch over
rr said on 9/Nov/05
have to agree with others that he might be around 5'8" - 5'9". Looked shorter than Akshay in 'Dhadkan'. i guess the other muscleman Sunny Deol is also of a similar height.

All indian celebs increase their height.
OL said on 12/Oct/05
I've met the guy and I can tell you he's rounding up. Big time! I'm 5'10" (bare feet), and was wearing normal shoes (0.5" heel). The guy was wearing these chunky-ass boots which looked like a 1" heel easy and STILL he was about 0.5" shorter than me!

Strange, for a guy who is allegedly 1.5" taller than me - don't you think?
SH said on 19/Jul/05
I am not really into bollywood, but I am part Indian and some of my family members are into the producing and funding the movies; I have met some of these people (as I said on the Amitabh page he is 6'1'' or 6'2'' - not the 6'4'' he pretends to be) many of the actors are rather short but wear big shoes with insole lifts inside, those guys who are actually 6’+ get labelled as giants. Anyway Sunil Shetty wishes he was 5’11.5’’, more like 5’9’’. As Monty said Bollywood actors make Hollywood actors look like saints, Shrukh Khan is tiny for a leading man (Tom Cruise mold).
INDIAN IDOL said on 4/Jun/05
I SWEAR TO GOD I HAVE MET SUNIL SHETTY ON 2 OCCASIONS AND HE WAS WEARING CATERPILLARS LOGGER SHOES WHICH HAS ATLEAST 2 INCHES OF HEELS AND HE WAS NOT NOT MORE THAN 5 FEET 10 AND A HALF SO MOST HE IS 5 '8 AND A HALF ON A GOOD DAY..THATS IT.
Monty said on 27/May/05
If you guys think Hollywood actors lie about heights Bollywood actors make them look like saints. The only legit tall actor is Amitab Bachchan whos 6'2. Even Hrithik Roshan whos gets listed as 6'1 or 6'0 is only about 5'10.
J. said on 27/May/05
5'11.5", huh?: http://www.indianceleb.com/sunil/biography.htm

[Editor Rob: my knowledge of true bollywood heights is pretty limited. Maybe this guy is being generous and rounding up 2.5 inches! Unfortunately many of the heights of the Big bollywood stars are all over the shop and comparing becomes harder ;) i.e. Hrithik Roshan gets listed in the 5ft 11 - 6ft 2 range...]
Monty said on 27/May/05
Thats BS. Hes 5'9 hes shorter then model John Abraham whos 6'1 and Akshay Kumar 6'0 by 3 inches.

[Editor Rob: I never seen this guy's films so can't comment, only write what he said ;)]
