This is a re-posted post, but I don’t have time for a new one because I have to run around and go to Tiger Zinda Hai with my family (I think Salman would approve of both seeing his new movie and the family time). And anyway, I don’t think it is possible to improve on the post I did for his birthday last year.
First, I’m just going to jump in with a whole assortment Maine Pyar Kiya pics. Because those are clearly the best ones.
Okay, I feel kind of weird posting all those photos of a college kid character without his shirt (and Salman in real life when he was years younger than I am now). Let’s check out one where he is all mature and glasses wearing. But still without a shirt.
Notice there is still some very very faint stubble here. Now, I am STRONGLY of the opinion that Salman looks better with hair on his chest then with this new smooth waxed look. See? This is just WRONG!
Notice how his chest looks the same as all of the adorable small children surrounding him? See, it would be much better if he had hair!
Speaking of small children, shirtless with a baby!
And a slightly bigger baby!
And, in a complete change of pace, shirtless with a gun
Shirtless with a cigarette
Shirtless with his father!
Shirtless with his mother (awwww!)
Shirtless with a guitar isn’t bad! Although I don’t know about the shredded pants.
And then there’s this one, which is almost a girly pin-up version, one of those “Oh, I didn’t see you there! You have caught me unprepared” kind of poses.
And another one! That is even more so!
And finally this one, where we can admire the presence of stubble as he shyly looks away from the camera.
Now, to end, these nice simple basic shirtless shot. See, this is all we need! No oil, no fancy jewelry, no big poses, just a nice basic body with no shirt.
And full length.
And another, also with the formerly worn shirt draped over his shoulders to sort of add context.
Another similar one, he doesn’t even have to take of his shirt! Well, “shirt”.
This is of course my all time favorite photo of Salman. Which manages to be both sexy and funny at the same time. “sexy” because, well, look at him! And funny because that pose, plus the undone button on his pants is just so so so so much!
Now, for our Friday Discussion:
Which Shirtless Salman era is your favorite?
Young and lean and hairy
Young and lean and no hair
Older and muscles on muscles
For myself , I would vote for young and lean and no hair, I think:
I look forward to an enlivening intellectual discussion on this important issue! Oh, and also, if I missed a classic shirtless shot, feel free to post it in the comments. Just go down a line, paste in the link to the image, and then down another line, and that will display it.
