I shall pick the best answers and include it on a Blog Post on Monday morning...Time for some 'Action' folks :)
Posted on September 27th: Well, I have tried to include all of the tweets that I've received on 'Who's The Best Action Hero In Bollywood Since 2005?' in this blog post. Let me make it clear that I've taken responses ONLY from people who are following me on Twitter and no where else. It is quite apparent that Salman Khan's 'Dabangg' wave is super strong as he emerges to be a clear favourite. There are many answers in the Comments section as well so do check them out. You guys can continue posting your views in the Comments section.
@Faridoon_S Well i think Vivek Oberoi is definately the Best Action Hero...since 2005. (Shootout At Lokhandwala and Prince)
Shootout At Lokhandwala was one of the amazing performances of VO as an action hero. He potrayed a real-life character and delivered some superb action scenes which were daring and looked as if he was the real Maya himself :) He brought out that negative streak so well with great intensity. Loved VO in SOAL!

Prince was a very fab movie which had him perform extreme action sequences, taking action into a new level. He did some daredevil stunts like hanging off a chopper at 8000 ft. high in the air, jumping from a 32 storey building from a ramp kept across another 28 storey building with 60ft main Durban road in between. And moreover skateboarding where he was going on the opp direction with cars coming from the other side...without a head gear. This was very risky as on losing the grip one can fall backwards and hurt the head. Also fighting on an upturned SUV in the midst of raging river rapid in the Himalayan ranges...some very unique and dangerous action scenes. He was awesome as an action hero as he was able to pull off all these phenomenal stunts all by himself without using a body double.

Really he potrays every character be it of any genre with true dedication, hardwork and brings out the bestest of himself :) VO is an Amaaazing person!!! :)
@Faridoon_S the best action Hero is Hrithik!!
@Faridoon_S Hrithik Roshan. No doubt on that. He is not only the Best action hero but is the best actor for any kind of movies
@Faridoon_S I think SRK is probably the best in sophisticated action sequences. While Salman is best for the OTT action scenes.
@Faridoon_S Faridoon bhai. Ye kaisa ek tarfa topic chunliya. Obviously Salman Khan. Aapko 2010 se poochna tha atleast. competition hota
@Faridoon_S Shahid Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi
@Faridoon_S Tie between Sanjay + Salman, Sanjay an edge higher.
@Faridoon_S Salman khan hands down for me :))

@Faridoon_S Undoubtely Salman is really the LAST ACTION HERO as mentioned n DABANGG trailor too..his expressions n action looks real..
@Faridoon_S John Abraham in NY. Makes me realize he should do more as I think it would suit him perfectly! Action hero material for sure!!
@Faridoon_S IMO Akhshay is the best Indian action hero but lately he's mostly done comedies! Films like Wanted, Dabangg & even Veer r very very good in terms of action!l, hence post 2005 it's undoubtedly Salman
@Faridoon_S I guess it's Salman for the moment because I like raw action and Wanted and Dabangg action sequences are definitely raw
@Faridoon_S Best Action Hero :Hrithik ( Dhoom 2 + Jodhaa Akbar )!:)
@Faridoon_S Salman Khan is da real and onli action hero
@Faridoon_S the best action star is undoubtedly Salman khan..
@Faridoon_S There haven´t been any good action movie in BW lately. A good sport movie would be Lahore. SI boys would kick BW a....! 4 gud action you need well prepared actor, stuntmaster, director who knows how to film it & good editor. BW missing some of them

@Faridoon_S Hrithik roshan. No doubt in that
41) @ingrid diwali I wouldn't name Sanjay Dutt for Zinda but for Dus, Shootout At Lokhandwala and hopefully soon for Knock Out http://bit.ly/9FN9tf
@Faridoon_S Hrithik Roshan for #Krrish #Dhoom2.He performed the most dare devil stunt in these films. Even in JA Hrithik's sword fighting scene was mindblowing. Such action only he can performed. Hrithik is the best.
@Faridoon_S No doubt is Salman Dabaang!
@Faridoon_S Shahrukh khan for DON .. (fav scene => mujhe uske joote pasand nahi aaye) ;) The most stylish and dynamic action hero, DON , whose every action and looks were unique and smart with smart thinking @iamsrk
@Faridoon_S the Best Action Hero since 2005 #SRK @iamsrk 4 sure
@Faridoon_S..Srk (Don) Hrithik (Krrish) (Dhoom2)
