They say a photo says a thousand words. Gone are the days when a notice had the primary star holding a firearm and yelling his minds out which was sufficient to get in the group. Circumstances are different since as Bollywood motion picture blurbs have gone from strong to bolder. The most recent ten years or so have seen many on-screen characters going shirtless presenting their middle's to snatch whatever number eyeballs as could reasonably be expected. Here we take a gander at fifteen top Bollywood stars who went naked or semi-bare for their motion picture publications. 


Shahid Kapoor 

Shahid Kapoor uncovered middle for his "Kaminey" motion picture notice where he prepared hard to get under the character of Charlie and also in "Udta Punjab". Despite the fact that the film averaged business in the cinema world it got individuals considering him important. 

Dara Singh 

Seemingly, the primary he-man of Hindi silver screen who had the qualification of going shirtless for almost all his film blurbs. It was required for Dara Singh to uncover in each film blurb as he was the undisputed wrestling champ of India. He took up "B" grade movies which were construct either with respect to super saint characters of fanciful legendary characters where he needed to uncover his middle. He began his movie vocation as a performing artist in 1952 with "Sangdil" which he tailed it up with 'Faulad', 'Samson', 'Rustom-E-Hind', 'Sikandar-E-Azam', 'Lootera', 'Veer Bajrang', 'Jawan Mard', 'Toofan', and so forth. 


The first occasion when that demonstrated a prominent saint going shirtless on a motion picture blurb was none other than Dharmendra in OP Ralhan's 'Patthar Ke Phool' in 1966 and in Anil Sharma's 'Elaan-E-Jung' in 1989. He was viewed as the most great looking he-man legend who could make his female fans swoon over him. Not the normal solid sort but rather sufficiently solid to bash a posse of goons without any assistance. The publication of 'Patthar Ke Phool' raked up a tempest among the group as it was surprisingly that "An" evaluation motion picture playing a typical man went shirtless remaining close to a champion. 

Sanjay Dutt 

Sanjay Dutt went shirtless for Feroz Khan's "Yalgaar" notice where he played a character with negative shades. In spite of the fact that he had gone shirtless in a scene in his introduction motion picture "Rough" and in different past movies yet "Yalgaar" set the tone for his up and coming movies. 

Sunny Deol 

Sunny Deol like his dad Dharmendra was a wellness monstrosity who played solid men characters in real life movies. He stripped in two or three scenes in his presentation film "Betaab" and Rajkumar Santoshi's "Ghayal" and "Ghatak" yet never on a notice. JP Dutta's "Kshatriya" was most likely the main blurb where he ran shirtless alongside Sanjay Dutt. 

Aamir Khan 

Aamir Khan, the stickler had a short and incline constitution before he began pumping iron for his part in 'Ghajini'. He assumed the part of a man who experiences transient memory misfortune and is out to retaliate for his adored's demise. The blurb uncovered him wearing a six-pack body with names tattooed everywhere on his body. He later did the full Monty for Rajkumar Hirani's "PK" in 2014 where he played an outsider who secured his basic part with an old music player. 

Salman Khan 

A few years prior Salman with a shirt or shirt was uncommon, it was a sworn off conclusion that he will go shirtless in his film. Be it his first blockbuster 'Maine Pyaar Kiya', 'Karan Arjun' or 'Veergati', the motion picture publication had a Salman uncovering his middle. He was a wellness monstrosity from his first film and has played guide to multitudinous up and coming performing artists which incorporate any semblance of Hrithik Roshan and Arjun Kapoor. 

Ajay Devgan 

Ajay Devgan made his acting presentation with 'Phool Aur Kaante' in 1991 and has come a since a long time ago then. He too had an incline build until he went shirtless for "Omkara" where he pumped iron. The notice of Rohit Shetty's "Singham" made him strip for the motion picture publication which was caught up by 'Activity Jackson'. 

Shah Rukh Khan 

Lord Khan too never trusted in removing his shirt until Farah Khan demanded creating eight packs for his home generation 'Om Shanti Om'. The tune 'Dard-e-Disco' had him move shirtless. From that point forward he has gone shirtless on a couple events for a few scenes in movies yet for a motion picture publication again went shirtless in 'Glad New Year'. 

Saif Ali Khan 

Saif Ali Khan took a while to give a performance hit as he had hits just where he played second fiddle to different saints. It was simply after 2005 that he conditioned up his body to get into the top group. His first film blurb where he went topless was for Yashraj's 'Salaam Namaste' (2005) and "Kurbaan" (2009). In spite of the fact that he seemed shirtless in a few scenes in motion pictures like 'Race', 'Race 2', 'Being Cyrus' and "Omkara" yet stays to be considered as a part of the three Khans. 

Hrithik Roshan 

It took just about 10 years for Hrithik to go topless in Zoya Akhtar's 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' in 2011 in the wake of making his crushing presentation in 'Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai' in 2000. One of the fittest and most good looking hunks in contemporary Bollywood, he had uncovered in many films however it was 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' which took the cake. 

John Abraham 

John is acclaimed for going shirtless in verging on each film of his. His presentation motion picture "Jism" trailed by "Paap" set the pattern for every one of his motion pictures. One of the best bodies in the business, his eminent movies where he stripped for scenes were in 'Dostana', 'Dhoom', 'Race 2' and 'Shoot Out At Wadala', and so forth. 

Rajkummar Rao

The widely praised Hansal Mehta's "Shahid" made Rajkummar Rao strip for the motion picture notice. Despite the fact that the motion picture snatched a couple of national honors yet went unnoticed at the crate –office. A quite underrated, he is gradually and consistently making his imprint by doing significant parts. 

Varun Dhawan 

Varun Dhawan is the new hunk on the square who made his acting presentation in Karan Johar's 'Understudy of the Year' in 2012. He has climbed the prominence step rather quick and has conveyed a couple hits in a matter of moments. He showed his middle in the motion picture blurb of 'Fundamental Tera Hero' where he had both the female leads sticking on to him. No big surprise fans expect more from him sooner rather than later. 

Karan Singh Grover
