Salman earned many accolades for his portrayal of the Haryanvi wrestler Image: YouTube
The teaser of Sultan is evidence that objectifying men can also work well for films. Getting those six pack abs takes strict diets and superhuman work outs. But a hit can make it all seem pleasant. Which is why, it's the reign of bare bodied men these days. T2 Online unbuttons the shirtless syndrome.
Salman Khan in his briefs for Sultan
Salman Khan has converted being shirtless to an art form. It pulls in audiences thick and fast. In Sultan, to play the bone-crushing wrestler, he has taken it further and cut down to the bare minimum. The yellow, dust-effect poster of the film even made us wonder if the movie should, in fact, be called Suntan.
Shahid loses shirt in Udta Punjab
Shahid Kapoor, brilliant actor and dishy human being, badly needs an eye-catching hit. So for Udta Punjab, his torso is ribbed like the Rocky Mountains. Although the tiny, significant detail that rock stars and musicians usually look super skinny (thanks to the Colombian talc) or fat (thanks to the booze), Shahid has turned on the body art and dread locks to shock and awe. Will it work? The film will have to fly high on more than just his bare torso.
Tiger tears off vest in Baaghi
A body count clocks the number of people pummeled in the trailer of Baaghi. So when Tiger Shroff first steps out of the ocean in a pair of well-fitting jeans, and no shirt, and then tears off his tattered vest during the action finale, the trailer promises flesh of the mashed kind. Why anyone would keep on that pair of jeans while jumping into the sea, is well, best left un-thought.
Hrithik Roshan goes sleeveless for Mohenjo Daro
Battling personal crises and spreading the love through Twitter and legal notices, Hrithik Roshan will shed his shirt in the forthcoming historical- mythological Mohenjo daro. Drop dead gorgeous as always, Roshan booked a gym in the interiors of Maharashtra during the film’s shoot to look just like hot men in pre-historic times would. He will be seen sporting a slinky, sleeveless tunic for most part of the films and wasn’t happy when a press photographer captured his ‘look’.
