Towering Beauties of Bollywood

Height of Bollywood Actresses

Bollywood has always held a special place in our hearts. We want to know everything about our favourite celebrities. From whome they are dating to what they eat. We want to know it all.

One question that pops in mind every time I watch a film is how tall are our Bollywood stars?

I did some research on it recently and found out the height of few bollywood bombshells. There may be some difference in opinion but, this is what I have come across.

List of tall bollywood actresses:

• Sushmita Sen: Measuring 5 ft 9 ½ inches she is the tallest beauty in bollywood.

• Deepika Padukone: Next up is Miss Padukone standing tall at 5 ft 9 inches.

• Anushka Sharma: This former model is 5 ft 9 inches tall. I wonder how the cameraman managed to place Shahrukh Khan at a decent height with her. Some hardwork he had been through.

Katrina Kaif: Our imported Chameli holds the third place at 5 ft 8 ½ inches.

• Bipasha Basu: This bong babe is seeing Katrina eye to eye at 5 ft 8.5 inches above the ground level.

• Shilpa Shetty: Mrs Kundra shares the same platform with Katrina and Bipasha. She too is 5 ft 8.5 inches tall.

• Sonali Bendre: This leggy lass is next in the line footing at 5 ft 8 inches.

• Sonam Kapoor: At 5 ft 8 inches she is no short than her designer clothing bills.

• Tabu: She can surely match her high-ceilinged height 5 ft 8 inches with equally soaring performances on screen.

• Lara Dutta: This former Miss Universe is 5 ft 8 inches tall.

• Priyanka Chopra: Our ‘Desi Girl’ is well placed at 5 ft 7.5 inches among the towering beauties.

If you have more accurate information than please feel free to share it with all of us.

wasnt aware that Katrina for 5′ 8.5″. Always thot she was abt 5’6′ or 5’7″..interesting info for a bollywood freak like me..


Vanie August 28, 2012 at 12:57 am

Great article Era…..Umm apparently I had heard long time back that Sonam Kapoor is taller or is of the same height as….so googled and checked on IMDB and she’s said to have height of 5′ 9.5″ (1.77m)….and Deepika’s said to be 5′ 8.5″…..
And speaking of camera tricks, did anyone notice anywhere in Om Shanti Om DP looking taller than SRK??


Shami August 28, 2012 at 8:24 am

Anushka sharma is 5 ft 9 inches tall (shocked), she doesnt look that taller in screen :S (confoosed…)
very good article Era..


kalps August 28, 2012 at 6:16 pm

agree..i didnt believed she has same height as ‘deepika’ ( deeps appear more taller becoz of her long hands ..remember the ‘fire’ scene of om shanti om)

I remember during childhood we used to think Tabu is the tallest actress… who knew in future all long legged ladies will join bollywood 🙂

Jaish August 28, 2012 at 11:36 am

Nice article!!! I have seen Anushka and my cousin is her classmate. She is nothing more than 5.6.
I heard Aishwarya is around 5ft 7inches..
Any idea how tall or short is Rani Murkerjee?? I was always curious 🙂


kalps August 28, 2012 at 6:18 pm

rani mukharjee will be come in ‘shorter beauties in Bollywood’ …just kidding…actually i like rani.


Priya June 16, 2013 at 1:37 am

I feel like Sonakshi Sinha should be on this list. Although most websites state her height as 5’6” it is quite clear from the song ‘Dhadhang Dhang’ of Rowdy Rathore and ‘Raja Rani’ of Son of Sardaar that she is around the same height as Ajay Devgan and Akshay Kumar *haan ji*


Hiral R. August 12, 2013 at 2:36 pm

Deepi is real tall, seen her recently promoting Chennai express wearing absolute flats and she was bit taller than Shahrukh plus mid-heeled boots. Must be 5’9″ at least..


sindhu August 18, 2014 at 11:59 pm

I had read somewhere that Deepika is 5.11 feet tall. She actually looks that tall *secret*


shubhangi kaushik September 29, 2014 at 5:28 am

I am 5foot 10 inch 19 year old girl. Thanks for the artical it inspired as well as cheered me a lot.
