The Most Famous Indian Actors In Hollywood


There are many famous Indian actors involved in the Hollywood scene. And they have taken different paths in order to get there. Some worked their way through Bollywood before making the switch, while others immediately tried their hand at Hollywood and succeeded, and they haven’t looked back since.

Priyanka Chopra

As far as Indian actresses go, Priyank Chopra is right up there in terms of fame, with the forty-year-old having started out playing the lead in Quantico, a TV show about FBI recruits, which has done well in both the US and India. From there, Chopra managed to secure a Hollywood debut in the Baywatch movie in 2017, and they formed the foundations on which she has built her career. What Chopra does really well is finding the balance between work in Hollywood and Bollywood.

Anil Kapoor

Anil Kapoor, 65, is an actor who has proven he can do it all. In the main, he appears in Hindi films but always had the intention to go international, something he’s achieved on many occasions, with over one hundred roles to his name over the years. On the Hollywood scene, Kapoor is renowned for starring in the hit TV show 24 and the iconic movie Slumdog Millionaire. Despite his age, the actor continues to be driven in the business. But with India embracing online gaming, it is almost certain he has had offers, like other famous personalities, to partner with renowned online game brands. Not a bad idea to consider, as a way of enjoying life after acting. 

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone, like Kapoor, is huge where Hindi movies are concerned. But she always had the passion to make it on the global stage. And after achieving great success in Bollywood, you could suggest that it was her appearance in xXx: Return of Xander Cage in 2017 that allowed her career in Hollywood to get underway. She’s now looking to build on that role by appearing in more Hollywood-based movies while continuing her efforts in the Hindi and Bollywood film scenes too.

Irrfan Khan

If you want to talk about famous Indian actors of Hollywood fame, they don’t come much bigger than the late Irrfan Khan. While you will naturally get many Indian actors who have a whole host of Bollywood credits and then several in Hollywood, Khan was eager to impress in both realms as much as possible. Some of his work included roles in the likes of Slumdog Millionaire, The Amazing Spider-Man, Life of Pi and Jurassic World. He embraced and excelled in any roles that came his way, which is why he was cast in some seriously big movies.

There are many Indian actors out there who have not only made it to Hollywood but gone on to be a massive success. And, for some, it’s about striking a balance between Hindi and Bollywood roles and those in Hollywood. This allows them to achieve double the amount of success and recognition while sticking to their roots and heritage.
