It seems the bikini clad female breed in Bollywood would soon find competition. Apart from the white skins (read Hollywood babes), they are now threatened by the male counterparts. If women like Kareena, Bipasha, Priyanka Chopra and even Minnisha Lamba have dared to wear bikini, men like Salman, Aamir, Akshay, Ranbir Kapoor and¬†now John and Neil Nitin Mukesh are not far behind.
John's bare minimum act in Dostana left little for imagination, making him Bollywood's new meat shop. John¬†will¬†be seen completely naked reclined in a fatal position, in one of the scenes of New York where he is arrested by the American cops on the suspicion of terrorism and is tortured in custody. A shot in the movie¬†shows a naked John in a reclined position, screaming out his innocence to the world. John had expressed his openness to drop all his clothes for a film, guess he didn't have to wait too long.
Neil Nitin Mukesh has had just a few films under his belt and his career could get a dredge up with a drop of¬†his pants. Don't let your imagination go wild. Neil is not doing this to attract the fairer sex, but Neil's character in Madhur Bhandarker's Jail is stripped by the jail authorities.
Bollywood has come off age and dropping clothes off for a scene is not scandalous and certainly not a¬†taboo.
Decades ago Dharmendra in Phool aur Paththar (1960) and Feroz Khan in Kashmkash (1970), no other¬†mainstream leading man had willed to strip infront of the camera.
Then Salman Khan did it, raising many a eyebrow. Now bollywood actors are slowly coming out of¬†inhibitions. Sexy, stunning, handsome, well proportioned, with athletic physique and rippling muscles, washboard tummies and women drooling over them. The reigning Indian reel heroes like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay¬†Dutt, Rahul Bose and many more are stripping on screen with a slew of films glorifying the male form.
