Important Question For Us to Answer! Is Jackie Shroff More or Less Appealing Naked Than Other Stars of His Age?

Popka Superstar claims that Jackie is not stomach turning when naked. I claim that he is. Now, for a fair and objective decision if this is ageism or Jackie-ism, I am going to list out the other actors of Indian film of the same age so we can compare bodies.

Anil Kapoor, also 62

Sunny Deol, 63

Naseeruddin Shah (69)

He actually does have a swimsuit scene in this movie, Asambhav, worth watching if you want to see Naseerji in a banana hammock!

Nagarjuna, 60

Mohanlal, 59

Rishi Kapoor, 69

Kamal Hassan, 64

And of course, Jackie himself

Okay, I think that is enough of a sample size. Feel free to suggest your own favorite sexagenarian actors I may have forgotten.

For my money, I would rank in order of naked viewing preference (producers, take note!):


Anil Kapoor


Kamal Hassan



Sunny Deol

Jackie Shroff

and….Rishi Kapoor

Okay, Jackie isn’t at the absolute bottom of the list, but that is just because Rishi exists

How about you? Close your eyes and force yourself to picture all these man naked, which do you prefer? For science!

  1. I can’t rank them. All I have is a top and a bottom. Anil at the top and Rishi at the bottom. And I know that sounds especially horrible since you decided, Margaret, that my brother-in-law is a Rishi lookalike.

    I generally find much older men very attractive so perhaps this just isn’t a good representative sample for me. I’ve got to start thinking about whether there any Hollywood actors who would bust through that for me…


    • Big question, this list is less than ten years older than SRK. When he hits 6-0, will I stop wanting to see him naked? Surely not. Surely my love is not so shallow.

      • I’m positive that I will still love him in that way in his 60s 70s and beyond. I do still love JT at 70…and I’m guessing Hrithik will hold up well too. And I think we talked before about my bizarre Robert Wagner and Hart to Hart fascination when I was a kid so I was like 13 and had this insane crush on this 50-year-old. Lots of stuff to unpack in there but like you I’m sure that my love is not shallow. 💕


        • Isn’t Robert Wagner a murderer? That might give me pause more than the age thing.

          Okay, I am drawing a blank, who is JT? All I can think of is Jonathan Taylor Thomas and he can’t be 70 because he was the teen heart throb when I was 8.

          Also, when I was 13, I had crushes on Gene Kelly, Cary Grant, and Tyrone Power. Who were all dead, which I think is worse than being 50.

          • Hey, none of that talk. It was an accident! Or she was killed by Christopher Walken. 😬

            James Taylor…hahaha but my young friends use that to refer to Justin Timberlake which is wrong. And bad. And wrong. I was also hung up on Rock Hudson. He was alive when I was 13 I think but not much longer. Cary Grant will always be the top of the top. Tyrone in Damn Yankees?!? Amazing. And to bring it all full circle with Gene Kelly and Natalie Wood (it was an accident!) have you seen Marjorie Morningstar? I can’t find it anywhere now…used to have the VHS but can’t locate it on DVD or streaming. One of my favorite books and films of all time.


          • Yes, how does this not come up CONSTANTLY with Christopher Walken? If I ever got a chance to interview him, it is the only thing I would ask about. Also, I really want Christopher Walken and Peter Ustinov to have a meeting of “random character actors who were present for famous murders” support group.

            I have not seen Marjorie Morningstar, but I feel like I used to see that VHS/DVD case everywhere. It must have been super available for a while, and now not at all. Funny how that happens.

            I was never hung up on Rock Hudson, I am proud to say. I consider it my highly tuned gay-dar. Which is sort of true, he was just too aggressively macho for me. Also, I watched Magnificent Obsession at a formative age in a “this is the stupidest movie ever and let’s laugh at it” kind of way, so now that is all I see with him.


  2. Remember the afternoon when Rachel picked up her son from school and then while pretending to work on her project googled nearly naked pictures of Denzel Washington,Liam Neeson etc.?


  3. Nagarjuna is number one here without doubt, and in the bottom Mohanlal, Jackie, Naseeruddin Shah and Rishi (naked or no, he is the last one for me).

    You forgot Mammootty, he is also 60-something and his shirtless movie will be in cinemas next month



  4. Jackie is presented for the Female gaze in clothes and poses that the Male gaze typically appreciates more. Like a male sex kitten. Which might the issue some women have with him because objectively speaking, Jackie is in fabulous shape, and in a very natural way, not sculpted at the local gym or by steroids or some crazy strict diet. Is he a Gay Icon in India?

    Is that a recent photo of Nag? If so, he’s looking fantastic for his age. Lucky Tabu 😉

    Among this set, I’d only want to see Jackie and Nag un(der)dressed.

    Rishi has a face and body that only Neetu could love lol. Good actor though, I get swept up in whatever emotion he is portraying.

    Anil is uber hot WITH clothes on – and the more the better. He’s just so dapper, and such great posture, that he pulls off clothing, fabric, and cut so well, be it a tux or a sherwani or period attire. What I don’t want to see him in is casual clothes (shorts, undershirt) or swimwear or no-wear. It would kill the mystique.

    • Forgot to add, jackie has a kind of Burt Reynolds thing going on. Except burt got unwieldy with age but jacky is still holding it together.


    • Oh, I like your Jackie theory! And I think he may be a gay icon? Anyway, it seems to be a matter of less clothes rather than personality and posing. Nothing objectively wrong with his body, I just don’t want to see it clinically arranged with as much skin as possible. Something more subtle would be different.

      Excellent concept of Anil! Although I would still be okay with him in less clothing, so long as his body hair is, somehow, handled.


    • This is a great comment and I completely agree. It’s also the case that Jackie has a lot of chemistry with male leads, including with hard to pair people like Govinda. So that helps the gay vibe. His recent characters all remind me of that gay Bond villain in Skyfall.


      • OH!!!! HE SHOULD BE THE VILLAIN IN THE WAR SEQUEL!!!!!!!! A smarmy politician who seems to understand and support Hrithik’s mission, but is actually working against him.

          • OH!!!! Jackie is Tiger’s Dad!!!! He didn’t die after all!!!! He lived, and used his secret Evil connections to rescue his son. And now Hrithik has to rescue Tiger from Jackie, but it’s all confused because Tiger has to choose between his rediscovered father and his True Love (maybe he also has amnesia and doesn’t remember Hrithik?). And Hrithik and Jackie have lots of tense conversations about Tiger that begin to feel weirdly homoerotic. And Hrithik has to make Tiger fall in love with him all over again.

          • Amnesia romance is always so so juicy, right? Hrithik knows, but has to pretend he doesn’t know, and has to romance Tiger all over again…. This time Hrithik could be the one giving the longing looks and open desire, and Tiger is the one all unsure of what he is feeling and stuff.

  5. I don’t have an answer but I would like to report that I just googled “Anil Kapoor shirtless recent” on my work computer to attempt to answer the very important question of whether he is now waxing or thinning out his chest (back, neck, shoulder, and upper arm) hair. Because I have to know that before I can make a judgement.

    • The Anil Kapoor who lives in my mind has started losing body hair as he ages in a natural and pleasing to the eye kind of way. Sort of scattered about the center of the chest in shades of grey, and nowhere else.

  6. I.. I.. I don’t know what I was expecting. I mean I should have known what I was clicking on and still I clicked. I’ll see you guys later.

    On a more serious note, just no. Why is Jackie wearing what looks like a bikini? It is even smaller than a speedo. Now I must gouge my eyes out.

  7. While I don’t find Jackie at all appealing, he does have a very good body. It’s the g-string pouch and the pose that are repellant for me. Rishee was unattractive even as a young man; I will never understand why he was cast as a romantic lead! Anil is handsome, but much too hairy for my taste!

    • Rishi had a lot of charm and charisma as a young man I think. But then that started going away pretty quickly. Although he can still really take the camera, I like him more as a character actor than a lead.

    10. Rishi

    Now someone make me the serious gay sauna drama starring all of them the world needs.

      On the other hand, Kamal Hassan haters UNITE!!!!! Somehow he just feels so pleased with himself onscreen, I hate that.
