Action has been a favourite genre in Hindi cinema. Larger-than-life situations, high-octane drama, and thrilling stunt sequences with a swashbuckling hero in the lead, the thrill of watching an actioner is unmatched. Even today, action films enjoy a strong fan following and film-makers are going all out in exploring the genre. The latest one to join the list is the Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer Anek, the trailer for which released recently. Set amid the political conflicts in Northeast India, it tells the story of a spy agent and his attempt at achieving and maintaining peace. Slated to release on May 27th, the political action thriller also stars Kumud Mishra and Manoj Pahwa.

With Anek set to join the list of thrilling action movies, let’s take a look at some of the best action heroes we’ve seen recently:
Aditya Roy Kapur
After charming us with his action-packed role in Malang, Aditya Roy Kapur is going bigger in OM. The teaser of the out-and-out actioner has set the tone for India’s most desirable hero and we are sure he’s ready to set the screen on fire.
From his debut Heropanti, Tiger Shroff has established himself as a leading action hero in the country. Tiger Shroff was also seen in Heropanti 2, which is playing now, and there’s the massive action drama Ganapath in the pipeline. Who wouldn’t like to see the uber-fit actor throw some power-packed punches?
One cannot have a list of action heroes and not mention John Abraham. It wouldn’t be wrong to say John Abraham brought a new dimension to Hindi action films. Last seen in Attack, the actor-producer is gearing up for the launch of two huge projects: Ek Villain Returns and Pathan.
Vicky Kaushal stunned the audience with his performance as an Army Officer in URI: The Surgical Strike. The actor proved his versatility with the film. While there isn’t much known about his upcoming The Immortal Ashwatthama, we hear it will have him in a new space.
