Bollywood has gotten bolder with actors experimenting with various genres of films and going to any lengths to play their part to the tee. From taking acting workshops to observing real life characters, B-town celebs are making sure their performances on the silver screen are entertaining and engaging. Some actors have gone the extra mile to strip on screen to play their parts convincingly, whether it’s Aamir Khan or John Abraham. While this can be quite controversial in India, men are still spared as compared to B-town actresses. Here we list a few top actors who have stripped on screen to go fully nude.
Aamir Khan in PK-He’s Mr. perfectionist and a methodical actor who gets into his character completely. Aamir teams up with Rajkumar Hirani once again for PK, after their previous smashing hit 3 Idiots. The actor has also learnt Bhojpuri specially for this film and has been posting tweets on his twitter handle in the language. The actor took to the micro blogging site and posted the film’s poster saying, “What do you think guys? Tell me fast… butterflies in my stomach!!!” He then put PK’s official motion poster and tweeted, “Ei Youtubewa ka link bhery good hai. Eima humra boley wala poster dekho!” While Aamir is trying to be as daring and different as always, his fans were in for a surprise looking at the poster. But it seems like this poster also made someone else uncomfortable. According to a report in INDIA TV, a Kanpur based lawyer has filed a case against the actor and a Hindi daily for publishing PK’s poster which shows Aamir Khan nude except for a radio covering the frontal. The lawyer alleged that the film’s poster showed promoting obscenity and would incite sexual violence! But Aamir’s not one to get deterred. Kudos to him.
Ranbir Kapoor- The Kapoor scion has bowled over Bollywood. He has never followed the chosen path and done things differently. An intense character, Ranbir has proved his mettle with films like Rockstar and Barfi! to name a few. He even chose an unconventional and intense film for his debut where he stripped on screen! For his debut in Saawariya, Ranbir Kapoor did what no other contemporary or new comer would dare to do. He stripped naked for a song in the film with only a thin towel around his waist. Though that did nothing to hide his frame. It was a bold move and unparalleled by any other actor from his generation!
John Abraham- John has evolved as an actor over the years. From being a former model to a top Bollywood star and producer, he’s surprised everyone with his performances. While he was called expressionless by Kareena Kapoor Khan on chat show Koffee with Karan, John has silenced his many critics. Films like Shootout at Wadala, Dostana and Madras Cafe have proved that John can do more than just pose and strut his stuff in movies. In Dharma Production’s Dostana, he played a hottie who had girls swooning with his butt flaunting act in the film, as he steps out of the sea in a pair of swimming trunks and then exposing his buttocks. But prior to Dostana, he went nude for a crucial scene in Kabir Khan’s New York where he played a terrorist. John off late, is doing character oriented films that are taking him places in Bollywood. He’s certainly proved everyone wrong!
Neil Nitin Mukesh- He’s an actor par excellence but has not got his due credit in Bollywood. A performance oriented actor, Neil has tried to push the bar with films like Johnny Gaddaar, New York, Jail, Lafangey Parindey, 7 Khoon Maaf AND 3G to name a few, but msot failed at the box office. For Madhur Bhandarkar’s Jail, Neil stripped naked for a scene. Kudos to him for believing in the script so much, that he went on to play his character to the tee. It took guts but Neil has time and again proved that he is different from the others in Bollywood and has always believed in the subject of his films. One of the few actors from his generation to strip in a film.
Raj Kumar Rao- He’s been unconventional from the beginning and not a mainstream hero. Applauded for films like Love Sex aur Dhokha, Ragini MMS, Shaitan, Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 2, Chittagong, Kai Po Che! D-Day and Shahid to name a few, the actor’s films speak for themselves. In Hansal Mehta’s Shahid, based on the life of lawyer and human rights activist Shahid Azmi, Rajkumar played Shahid and the film won critical acclaim and was appreciated by audiences too. Rajkumar went nude for a scene in the film and as an actor, has never stopped himself from playing challenging characters. He raises the bar for other B-town actors.
