Fat Tuesday Post! Our Favorite Fat Men! Well, “Cuddly”

This is one of my all time most popular TGIF posts. Because women just want someone to snuggle with. Anyway, updating it a bit! Can you believe I was missing Shammi, Sanjeev Kumar, and Dangal Aamir?

Nivin Pauly!  Always a bit on the cuddly side, and just getting more so as time goes on.

See?  Don’t you just want to hug up against him like a big squishy pillow?

With a bit more beard, so he looks all soft and furry and fuzzy.

While we are down south, let’s swing by Madhavan!  Not muscley present Madhavan, but nice mushy Madhavan from a few years back.

See?  Even in a police uniform, you just want to hug him.

I have to say, present day Mohanlal might be a bit much even for me.  And he is also super super old.  But wow, young Mohanlal!!!!  Soft around the edges, but with that nice steady fire in his eyes? See?

Is that it?  Is that all the southerners required?  Oh wait!  PRABHAS!!!!  I know I will get in trouble if I forget him, especially after a whole month of no Prabhas on the TGIF posts.  See how he’s got that nice “Netflix and chill with a soft man-pillow” vibe to him here?

See, that’s what Anushka’s thinking here, “I could just lean down and rest my head on his nice soft tummy and take a nap.”

And his sweet little smile really goes well with the whole teddy bear vibe.

Okay, NOW can we move North????  Where it will be much harder to find examples!  Hmm.  Well, there’s Arjun Kapoor, who is all nice and snuggly now instead of that scary boney Gunday look.

See how nice he is to lean against?

Good with or without turban

And then there’s Sanjay Dutt!  Sure, most of it is muscle, but there’s enough body fat there to make him huggable.

While I am thinking of older generations, of course Rishi Kapoor.  See how much fun Sridevi is having touching his nice soft cheeks?

Along with Rishi, of course there is his uncle Shammi, like a big old cuddly energizer bunny!

Is that it?  Are there no more Hindi film heroes with nice cuddly shapes?  I guess not!

Oh wait, there is one.

  1. Okay. This is weird because I just finished Andaz last night and the whole time I kept thinking, okay I could be into Shammi if he had kept using hair plugs. He is kind of cute chunky and he dresses well, so I could be all about cuddling that.

    • And you could play with his little forehead curl! I just want to spin it around my finger.

      But really, it’s all about Sanjeev.

      Oh, and I wrote an Andaz fanfic, which I am telling you as one of the few people in the world who actually watched Andaz.

      • OMG, yes! The forehead curl is so twirl-worthy. Also, I am seriously weirded out by myself right now.

        My mom was really into Sanjeev so I just can’t look at him as anything other than a my mother’s favorite actor. He will forever remain asexual for me.

        • When I was about ten, a friend came over while we were watching a movie and pointed out that a) all three of us (mother and two daughters) were swooning over the same man, and b) He’s been dead for decades (I think it was Tyrone Power). Somehow it didn’t seem odd to me to share a crush with my Mom.

          On the other hand, actors that remind me of my Dad are impossible. This is my Amitabh problem, he’s very Dad-Like for me (same height, similar beard in present day), so most of the time I just look at him and see “Dad”.

          Luckily, Sanjeev Kumar looks nothing like my Dad, so he’s good for me!

          And hey, Shammi Kapoor had all the young women of India in a tizzy for about 3 years there, nothing weird at all about finding him an attractive man!

  2. Hello to Shahrukh in a robe! I’ll have what he’s having.
    Also Shammi and Sanjeev Kumar and Madhavan. Yum.
    I’m biased of course but Shashi still looks great. I don’t think I’ve taken special notice of a man in a pajama-punjabi before. It’s what all the men around me wear. But something about the way Shashi wears this very simple, basic Indian clothing just get me. Both in reel and real life. I’m currently watching Baseraa on youtube. He’s wearing them right now in it.

  3. Huh. In that B&W picture of Sanjeev I’m getting a bit of a Fawad resemblance. That must be the sense of familiarity that’s been teasing at the edges of my mind. Something about the chin maybe?

  4. Dev Anand. Soft around the edges. Even when he was young and skinnier he still had chubby cheeks. Mithun circa 1980s, in retrospect not so attractive, but back then i thought he was.

    Btw you’ve had multiple posts on teddy bear men and hard body muscle men. How about a future post on skinny men? The skinnier the better. Could be beanpole or could be compact sized. If teddy bear men makes one think of cuddling, skinny men imply ease of movement, swiftness, energy, and deftness in the sack. For example, if you are netflix and chilling and ask the guy for a glass of wine, Skinny Guy will get you the perfect wine and be back in a flash to be all over you. Whereas Teddy Guy will take half an hour to motivate out of inertia, then another half hour to find the wine and the glass. And Muscle Guy will expect you to get the wine. And won’t have wine with you because carbs. So Skinny Guy should not be overlooked. 😉 Examples include Southern Sid, Vikrant Massey, and (early) Arjun Rampal. Shahid Kapoor and SRK are deceptively skinny, or at least, thinner than they look on first glance.

    • Hairy, cuddly, all these men are in response to reader requests. No one has indicated an interest in skinny men (poor skinny men), but you make a good case! I shall have to think on this.

      And let me add young Rajinikanth, and current Dhanush.

      • I second the skinny men request. I would also include Sid M, ARK, and Tiger to that list. They are all weirdly skinny if they didn’t work so hard at bulking up.

        • Young Hrithik? Young Jackie Dada? Salman for like 2 years before he discovered steroids? Oh oh! Is this finally my excuse to include hot hot Mohnish Bahl?

          • Yupp, I was actually thinking of Jackie during Hero and Salman during Maine Pyar Kiya. So yes, definitely include them. I wasn’t sure if there were any good young skinny Hrithik pics because by the time he was launched, he was buff. Maybe also skinny Farhan?

            Also, sure go nuts and include Monish Bahl but I am never ever going to think he is hot. He doesn’t look exactly like my dad but something about him that gives me dad vibes and as you correctly noted in the cuddly discussion, that’s just gross and off-limits.

          • No, but it is weird that he looks good when he is barely legal. Cradle robber, you are!

        Commenting on comments below…
        The pic of young Hrithik, even blurry – that’s what I’m talking about. Bony-skinny, tall and lanky, so long limbed that his fingertips graze his knees. He makes the 3 handsome men around him look like marshmallows.
        Cosign on Sid M and especially ARK, who has a similar lanky quality to young hrithik, but he’s legal!
        (Was Tiger ever not bulked out? )

  5. I’d offer Govinda, but while he’s been chubby (and muscular at the same time sometimes), and is very pinchable, I don’t think he’s cuddly at all. In Andolan he had glasses and jumpers in a few scenes and that’s the closest he’s gotten.

    • I mean, if we are expanding “cuddly” to mean someone you want to cuddle no matter their body fat, then I can add on Jhoothi Hi Sahi John:

      • Aw that’s cute! i didn’t expect him to be able to be cuddly.

        I mean, Govinda fits the brief “fat” sometimes and when he was young he was pretty fluffy but you can’t imagine cuddling up and watching a movie with him, can you? Even when fat. Good lord.
