@Yash 183cm
Lol Shukla isn't 6'2". I remember googling his height a year ago when I first saw him and I bought the 188 cm listing initially.

But the more I saw of him in Bigg Boss with people listed as 5'11" range the more it became apparent he is like strong 6' or weak 6'1" range maybe at best.

Here he is next to 5'11.5" Arjun Kapoor with loose posture and still taller:

Here he is with John Abraham who is also listed 5'11.5":

I'd say 6'0.5", give or take quarter inch.

@Yash183 and @Rob. I think Siddarth Shukla gives 185-186 cm impression. I have watched full BB13 season and currently watching BB14. @Rob I am very surprised you think that this person is not even 6 feet. FYI he’s legit 185 cm guy. Mostly seen wearing flats in the BB13 house and still towered everyone. He gives huge impression because he’s wide too. The best way to estimate his height is see him next to Gauhar. A below 6 feet guy would never tower a 170 cm girl.

Click Here can anyone from this forum tell how tall this guy is listed 6ft 2 multiple times looks huge his name is siddharth shukla Click Here
Editor Rob
I doubt that guy is ever over 6ft.

But he does in fact claim to be 6ft 2 click here.

Saif could get away with 5'8 and maybe 5'9 with good posture and lifts but 5'11 is bit too much. Ironically, both his father and son were/are tall men.
Linke said on 23/Aug/20
Rob, how tall do you recon Saif Ali Khan is based on this video with Varun? He looks 5'7 range.

His personal claim is 5'11! He says it around 04:00 mark where Deepika cheekily calls him liar.

Surprises me, how some Bollywood actors like Saif, Ranveer & Salman can get away with adding 2-3 inches to their height.
Editor Rob
that's a lofty claim, near 4 inches more than he might be.
Binu Singh said on 30/Jul/20
Rob he is no more than 5'5 or 5'5½
Linke said on 19/Jul/20
Agreed Blanc, Ranveer will make great addition. He has claimed 6 feet with shoes and later 6 feet and 75 KGS. I think he is 5'9.25 to 5'9.5.
Blanc said on 17/Jul/20
Rob can you add Ranveer Singh? He claims something ridiculous like 6 feet. I think lot of Google searches for his height it'd be nice if you added him. How tall do you think he looks at a general glance? He looks to hold up between 5ft 9 and 5ft 10 but more the former

Rob u have seriously overlisted this guys height he is always buffed up in boots with heels while he’s barely 167 cm

@Rob How tall do you think Remo d'souza is if Varun is near 5'8"?

Click Here

I guess he could be 5'7" to 5'7.5".
Editor Rob
Their height varies a bit in photos, looking an inch apart, then closer.

Varun dhawan is shortter than kriti sanon which you list 5'8"3/4 Click Here link to which they talk about their height though its in hindi.

Rob, this is dream team promo. Watch from 0.35 to 0.50. Katrina Kaif is without heels and Varun is still wearing his shoes. He looks shorter than the listing.
Stranger z said on 16/Nov/19
Varun is nothing more than 5'6".Mr Rob I always agree with your height listing.But I can't say the same with Bollywood superstars because they are not tall as they look in pictures.But still some bollywood superstars height is still close.

Kelvin gastlum looks a inch taller than him Click Here
Shoaib Ahmed said on 13/Jul/19
I met this guy last year.
Iam about 5'7.25 and when I met him I took a picture with him, he was clearly 1 inch shorter than me
We both were wearing normal sneakers which only adds 2-3 cms to your height
I also clicked a picture with Shah Rukh Khan and he was about same height as mine
Shah Rukh Khan is listed as 5'7.75 on this website
Varun Dhawan needs a downgrade of at least 1 inch
5'6.5 is the correct listing for Varun Dhawan
Absolute maximum no more than that

He is 5 ft 6 check him with 5ft 8 inch listed Anuskha Sharma they both are barefoot in this pictures

Click Here look rob varun with heels and kriti with flats kriti looks 2inch tall from him i guess more than 2inch still u listed short 167 168 guy to 172 nice joke even google listing is 5.6 168 and imdb listing is 169 so how 172 is possible for him even Anushka sharma is maximum 170 cm tall
Dave98 said on 22/Apr/19
I dare say 5'6.5".Seriously I don't really think he could be above 5'7" after seeing him in pics with SRK and Salman Khan. Also Google lists him at 5'6" which I don't think can be a mistake cuz I have never heard a 5'8" guy listed as 5'6" (at least Rob's listing of Cruise at 172cm and Google's listing at 170cm is only 0.75" apart! Almost 2 inches downgrading by Google doesn't really ring true to me)
Mj7 said on 20/Apr/19
Can't argue with that pic if Anuska 174cm I will give him 172cm 5'8
Kumar said on 16/Apr/19

ROB you have to look at this...Anushka is listed at 174, either varun is 174 or Anushka is 172.

Varun and Anushka are of "EXACT SAME HEIGHT" for sure!!
Editor Rob
He certainly doesn't look short with her, they could be very close.
shantanu said on 15/Apr/19
Rob , humble request can you guess what is Siddharth Malhotra's height. He is listed 180 cm by Google but I think he is solid 183 cm . What's your guess ?
Ricky muliawan hansyar said on 15/Apr/19
Anychance he is 5ft8 inch?
Editor Rob
I haven't seen enough to say he is a full 5ft 8, but I think I've seen enough to think he's not under 5ft 7.
Addy said on 14/Apr/19
He is 5'6!! Most of the time he wears lifts which is visible! I hope you follow his Instagram where one can see him barefoot!! Have a look to this 5'6 guy!!

afzal said on 12/Apr/19
He's short guy short from Salman he also wears lift inside shoes he's about 168 cm tall what's ur opinion about him rob
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Apr/19
What a handsome fellow Varun is! With Adonis-like looks like that, you don't need to be mega tall!

If I was a guy, I know which situation I'd sooner be in...

Varun can have 5ft7.75. I don't know who the lady is who stands next to him and certainly not her height, but I disagree with the average vote. Varun is well-proportioned and I think that Rob's estimate is more convincing than the 5ft6.85 average vote which, I feel, is a trifle unfair.
Akash// 182 CM said on 11/Apr/19
I didn't think you'd put Varun as high as 172. I always thought he was 5'6".

But anyway, you should add the more relevant Bollywood actors that aren't on the list. Like Sanjay Dutt and Akshay Kumar. And since you've added Varun Dhawan, you might as well add Siddarth Malhotra.
Ricky muliawan hansyar said on 10/Apr/19
Wacht dilwale movie specially ay video song tukur tukur, varun dhawan can look taller 1,5-2cm than shah rukh khan
khaled taban said on 10/Apr/19
He is 5'7.5", no more no less!
Linke said on 10/Apr/19
172 cms seems perfect for him. Any idea on Ranveer Singh, Rob? He had claimed to be a solid 6 footer.
afzal said on 10/Apr/19
Click Here why ur so sure about him 172 its impossible jindarmahql is 6.4 and he's no more from 5.6 look his legs also maximum 169 for Varun dhawan from my side please downgrade him
afzal said on 10/Apr/19
He's short from srk about 1 inch 2inch short from kroti sanon watch video 5inch short from john abraham see video before listing him 172 many film industry people's listed him 169 weak 5.7 then why u given him that much height
Ricky muliawan hansyar said on 10/Apr/19
I am not sure Varun dhawan 5ft9 inch
Linkie said on 9/Apr/19
Hes around 5ft 6
Ricky muliawan hansyar said on 8/Apr/19
Finally, i think 172 cm is perfect list for him
Editor Rob
I would struggle to see Varun as all as 5 foot 9 barefoot. Though I don't think he's as short as 5ft 7...
