Say hello to my newest recruit Meenaxi (former blogger at bollywoodbitchslap! But she’s promised to tone down the damage *lol*) I’m so excited to have her write for me because I for one think she’s hilarious! Enjoy xoxo

Blame it on the heat. That’s what caused it all. You know, Bollywood’s obsession with abs.

It all started in 1998, with Salman Khan in Oh-Oh Jaane Jaana from Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya. He kicked off the topless trend. Apparently, he showed up for the shoot bina baniyan because it was hot. So they shot the song shirtless. And when Sallu says it’s hot… you don’t ask why, you just agree. And sweat a little bit yourself.

Since then, we’ve seen everyone’s abs… Hrithik Roshan in Dhoom 2, SRK in Om Shanti Om, Aamir Khan in Ghajini, John Abraham in Dostana- ok, so we saw a lot more than just John’s abs, but no one’s complaining! Oh yeah, and now Farhan Akhtar in the tomato song from ZNMD. And between the biggies, we saw Emraan Hashmi flash his abs…. and Upen Patel. (Who-pen would probably suit him better, because really…. he pretty much disappeared after that tiny role in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani!)

And with the release of Singham, Ajay Devgn also joins the six-pack club.

From 1998 till now, it’s been 13 years and over 50 individual ab muscles. ENOUGH. We get get it. You Bollywood men exercise. You can wear skinny jeans without worrying about a muffin top. You have washboard abs. You’re lean. You’re fit. You’re frikkin’ HAWT.

Now since we have established that, can you men please go to the gym and develop another body part?
