 Personally as an actor now I find him average though he was v.good in the early 90's  'Kabhi haan kabhi na' remains his best performance till date for me & of course his anti-hero roles.
I agree none of the Rahuls he played later on could match that performance. He was so delightful. I love that movie - the songs, the last scene everything   - my all time favorite.
On topic  - Bollywood revolved around Rajesh Khanna once upon a time and then Aamitabh Bacchan followed by SRK. I think his hold on that title is slacking now. With a lot of fresh blood  he needs to reinvent himself. I dont think Aamir or even Salman can take the place he once enjoyed in Bollywood. Mega Superstars  - that too self made ones are very rarely found.

Of course Bollywood does not revolve around one person...
 
But definitely YES He is the face of Bollywood... He and AB Sr are the most recognised face globally and they are the faces that Bollywood is associated with... The mass hysteria he creates internationally is unparalleled...
 
He was the Number 1 star for close to a decade... After AB Sr he is the only one who has been on top consistently for the longest time...From early 2000 to up until 2009 he was the numero uno ... Then  Aamir 's couple movies became ATBB's LOL  and then he became Number 1... Before that it is commendable that he consistently was on top and it is a tough task with the other two Khans hovering around... and the influx of the new ones who came along and were tipped against him and were projected that they will topple him from the top...
Naye log aaye Naye log gaye but he still stayed on top...
 
Of course nothing is constant ... Things changed in 2008 when Ghajini came along and in 2009 Aamir sealed the top spot with 3I...
 
As an actor... I grew up watching his films...After the intial euphoria of Aamir's QSQT and Salman's MPK then came along SRK's DDLJ... He was the ultimate romantic hero in those days and I did enjoy his movies up until the mid 2000's... He was the last of the actors I liked to watch in romcoms and thats one of the reasons I do not enjoy the romcoms churned out these days... Only Ranbir has filled in that void in the rom coms to a certain extent in recent times...
 
Coming to the present day scenario... He does seem down a bit... I think the pressure of holding on to the top spot is showing... Reasons are the re emergence of Salman Khan and Aamir's midas touch at the BO ... He has a lot riding on RaOne...Lets see how that shapes up...
 
But definitely he wil be remembered as one of the top star of Bollywood...

^I diagree, because whenever anyone talks on bolly they mention AB sr and Shashi Kapoor (not sure how thry know him ) Maybe because him and AB did maxium movies I have been told. I then try to tell them that they were there years ago though AB is still there in the industry. Yet many non-indians associate bolly with these two especially overseas. As, I have traveled all over.Smile
 
Since Slumdog millionaire came out many westerners are now taking an interest in our movies. The icon they know representing Bolly is Anil Kapoor. In Europe I agree SRK is well Known. In the states, not so much till MNIK controversy came out when he was stopped at an airport did Westners know he was a bolly star. Anil Kapoor is now known globally, and what present generation think  when one is associated bolly. Smile 
 
Now are we talking on Indians over seas then yes its AB or SRKSmile 
Non indians: Anil Kapoor

^ i dont think i've heard one person who is non-indian ever mention shashi kapoor. Maybe im talking about the younger generation but everyone knows SRK and Aishwarya Rai.

I've also never heard of many people who are non indian and know who Shashi kapoor. is. If we are talking internationally then the most recognised stars are Amitji, Ash and SRK!
