    in terms of pure looks hrithik,arjun rampal and salman are the most good looking.hrithik hass that greek god type looks and he looks a photocopy of bradley cooper,only more muscular..arjun has that model kind of good looks..both of these actors look good in one or two kind of looks..
    salman on the other hand seems to have retained a lot of his childhood looks..however his is the most versatile face among the three in a sense that all kind of styles look good on him..
    akki too is good looking..the only dampner is when he smiles his gums show biit too much..

    as for amitabh it is his acting prowess that gets confused with good looks..when you have a son who is a mirror image of you and looks like abhishek bacchan..how can amitabh be good looking?

    @dennycrane – akki sir win (out of respect we must refer to ‘them’ in plural like they do in urdu) the ‘sexiest gums’ awards hands down.

      the simple test of good looks is that most beutiful women fall for. and looking at the list of the women salman has dated, he has to be the best looking man.

    My Top 10 good looking hunks according to timeline as the appeared on the silver screen:
    1. Dev Anand
    2. Manoj Kumar
    3. Dharmendra
    4. Sashi Kapoor
    5. Vinod Khanna
    6. Amitabh Bacchan
    7. Salman Khan
    8. Akshay Kumar
    9. John Abraham
    10.Ranveer Singh

    Yes Dev was skinny but he bought soft young looks to men on screen, Manoj covered his face but always delivered what he had to say, Dharam could not dance and was akward but that was what people loved of his, Sashi was goodlooking and almost beautiful like the beauty of a woman…almost, but that was his magic, Vinod had an extended jaw but that determined his masculinity, Amitabh was pokerfaced and dark but he still looked good, Salman looks like he is crushed to his size from top and bottom, but he made men take off their shirt and made male form beautiful. John has a lopsided face lacking any symmetry but there in lies his cuteness, Ranveer looks rural and but therein lies his raw, rustic appeal. Similarly, Akshay has a toothy gum but that itself makes his grin adorable.
    So the very facets which would look bad on another individual on its superstar poses er creates magic.

    @ank – bhai mere salman se kisi list mein koi miles ahead nahin ho sakta bollywood mein. na success mein, na acting mien, na popularity mein, na fan base mein, na looks mein. that is if u ra willing to respect majority opinion.

    haan agar ‘apni apni dafli apna apna raag’ hi karna hai to baat alag hai.
