As a controversy rages over Milind Soman’s birthday-suited appearance on the beach we look at other Bollywood male actors who have dropped their clothes for the camera.
1. Ranbir Kapoor In Saawariya:He was in a towel and nothing else singing Jab se terenaina. He dropped the towel. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali prudently dropped the tower-dropping moment.
2. Rishi Kapoor in Bobby: Coincidentally Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor had dropped his towel in Bobby, the film directed by Raj Kapoor in which Rishi made his debut as a leading man. The scene had Aroona Irani sneaking on the 18-year old Rishi after his bath.
3. John Abraham in New York: In a sequence showing torture in police custody John went butt-naked. Anything to show the character’s pain.
4. Rahul Bose in Split Wide Open :He has gone butt-naked repeatedly in Dev Benegal’s Split Wide Open , without shame or apology.
5. Anil Kapoor in Nayak : For a scene in Nayak Anil wore only a mud pack all over his body.Anything for a role, eh Anil?
6. Neil Nitin Mukesh in Jail : He went completely nude for a strip-and-search sequence in Jail. Neil had done a full-frontal. But it was blurred. Thank God for…errr….small mercies.
7. Rajkummar Rao in Shahid: For a sequence of police torture in Hansal Mehta’s Shahid Rajkummar Rao insisted on sitting stark naked on the cold stone floor of the police station in front of the brutal interrogator. Dedication taken to a new level.
8. Shah Rukh Khan in Maya Memsaab: Apparently did a nude love-making scene for Ketan Mehta’s film.
9. Milind Soman in Valley of Flowers: Bared his butt for a love-making scene in Pan Nalin’s Valley Of Flowers. This model-actor has never been inhibited about his body.
10. Aamir Khan in PK:Mr Perfectionist took the nation by storm with his birthday suit on the railway track with only a tape recorder to cover his modesty. Which wasthe song playing on the tape recorder?
