While 2016 has already ended, the awards season for the year has just begun. While a few awards shows have already taken place, a couple of them will take place over the next few weeks. BollywoodLife at the end of 2016 conducted several polls and asked you to vote for your favourites. One such category was the Best Actor one. Let me tell you that we have saw quite a few power packed performances last year, especially from Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Shahid Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Sushant Singh Rajput. But who was the Best Actor of 2016 according to you? Well, we got to tell you that we got a huge response for all of you and throughout the last month, the stars have been interchanging their positions in the poll. However, we finally have a result. Out of the six nominees we had given, fans chose Shah Rukh Khan as the Best Actor of 2016!
Yes, Shah Rukh Khan beat Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar to claim the top spot. In our poll, Shah Rukh received 45 per cent votes compared to the 26 per cent votes that Salman Khan received for the second position. Akshay Kumar, on the other hand, got 21 per cent votes and is in third. Shahid Kapoor, Sushant Singh Rajput and Amitabh Bachchan got 5 per cent, 2 per cent and 1 per cent votes respectively. This means, Shah Rukh Khan won by a large margin! (Disclaimer: Aamir Khan wasn't a part of this category coz we had not seen Dangal till we started the poll).
Shah Rukh Khan gave us some stunning performances through Fan and Dear Zindagi last year. Yes, they weren't huge hits like Dangal or Sultan, but Shah Rukh's performances in both the films were really good. In fact, Fan was one of his most difficult films and in Dear Zindagi, he was too good. ALSO READ - 5 box office lessons Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt taught Bollywood in 2016
We congratulate Shah Rukh Khan on being awarded our Best of Actor of 2016 by fans! However, we need to give a round of applause to Salman, Akshay, Amitabh, Shahid and Sushant too. They also gave us some really intense performances in 2016.
