Today is Janmashtami, celebrated as the birth of Lord Krishna who is the only God in Hindu mythology to have a playful and mischievous side and can turn into a teacher, philosopher and guide. In Bollywood, as we know, quite a few actors whose on screen as well as off screen persona matches to that of Lord Krishna. Be it Shah Rukh Khan's charisma or Salman Khan's attitude or Akshay Kumar's choice of movies and versatility. Here we take a look at five actors who can rightfully be termed as the Krishnas of Bollywood.
No Suniel Shetty you don't qualify for this despite starring in and as Krishna in the 1996 potboiler.
Shah Rukh Khan - Charming Krishna
His onscreen persona is of the kind that can make any girl fall in love with him instantly, the proof of which even Salman Khan endorsed in a scene in Sultan. His off screen persona is nothing short of what he is on screen. Irrespective of the gender, wherever he goes, he is always surrounded by people, just like Lord Krishna. Also his life's philosophies are second to none and inspires people all around. Another trait Lord Krishna was known for. Remember "Gita Saar"?
Salman Khan - Lover Krishna
Salman Khan is one man who doesn't play by the rules, just like what Lord Krishna did during Mahabharat. If you mess with Salman Khan, you have to pay for it. Yes, Viviek Oberoi, Arijit Singh I am looking at you. And of course how can we ignore Bhai's various love affairs.

Akshay Kumar - Krishna of all seasons
Whose better to be termed as Krishna than Akshay Kumar himself. In OMG Oh My God he even played Lord Krishna and was much celebrated for his portrayal. Even his choice of films mirrors Lord Krishna. How easily he shifts from a serious role to that of a playful one. Similar to what Lord Krishna's character is, something we've seen and read in various shows and books respectively.
Ranbir Kapoor - Flirtatious Krishna
This guy who was once considered the Kishan Kanhaiya of Bollywood. But as they say old habits die hard. It's about time he is back at his old antics. With his multiple relationships, his Casanova image. His character fits to the T to that of Lord Krishna with his multiple wives and "Raas Leela".
