If they are in the profession of acting, they are supposed to act well hence that should be the top priority. Looks is just an added advantage thats all . Sadly in Bollywood , looks is the main criteria then comes acting infact last is acting and thats sad .

Hollywood, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt give more importance to acting than looking good. Morgan Freeman, Meryla streep, Kevin Spacey are not good looking as per b'wood standards but they are excellent actors and thats what made them the legends they are now.

Good acting on any day makes a film work , not good looks and it shouldnt but thats not the case now thats why I started another topic abt the state of current films.

anyway , an actor should be judged on acting alone and if he looks good in that character then sone pe suhaga but still acting is the first priority.

I say to judge the actor with good looks which is supported by acting skill. If actor who has good looks but no acting skill why viewers will care to see him/her in movies. Cant viewers go to watch a fashion show instead. Wink

Again there has to be some looks too to carry on the superb acting skill. Else viewers wont be even attracted to judge the acting capability.

An actor should be good at acting while an entertainer has to look good as well.

I think looks and skills have been very well incorporated in the showbiz industry.

For exmaple, Ashutosh Rana, Nana Patekar are amazing actors, but they can never be Raj of DDLJ. They are old right now, but any given point and time, it wouldn't have worked. You can not possibly put an average looking guy as the central character on the big screen. What's the point of going to a movie hall if you are going to see girl/boy-next door? So, looks are definitely important, especially in Bollywood.

And looks are not everything either. About models turning into actors, not everyone has been liked by the audience. John, Bipasha, Priyanka, Ash, Sush, are not too bad of actors and hence, they survived. Celina, Dino, Aryan Vaid, Tanushree are still in the race and have not reached anywhere yet with their pretty faces.  

Skills are definitely more important but you can't ignore looks. I am sure you wouldn't want to see Uday Chopra playing Aryan in Dhoom 2. Embarrassed

and what's the use of acting well if you turn people off with your looks? Smile

good looks, like good packaging, helps sell the product. Winkas for acting skills, these actors are not doing theatre where there are no retakes. with umpteen retakes, most anyone can appear to have acting skills.

there's also a misperception i think. when someone does not look good, we naturally think they have acting skills. coz that's all they can have.Tongue with the good lookers, one often cant get past the drooling to even look into their acting skillsWink
