Upto now "topless" Salman Khan was the only one who seemed to deserve the "topless" tag. The actor whose famous trademarks are his scenes with his shirt off is now facing competition. Recently Akshay Kumar did it for Heyy Babyy while shooting a promotional video. As a matter of fact, there will be a full strip tease in the film. Aamir Khan is too said to remove his shirt in Ghajini for which he was seeing to it that his abs are in top shape.
Now it's not that they have a reason to adopt a new technique of getting the crowds to watch the film. Their careers are doing absolutely fine. Aamir's definition of a superstar (which he openly he claims he is) is one who can bring in the crowds regardless of the script or the film. If anyone needs to adopt a taking shirt off tactic, it's Salman.
He is the one in the need of a big one. Partner has scored a big one for him (and he took his shirt off in it) but he needs to fellow that up. Marigold doesn't seem to be hitting the right note with the audience so far. So will Aamir and Akshay gain the points that Salman hopes on scoring soon with their bare-chested moves?
