Bollywood actors like Salman Khan and Hrithik Roshan might have been the first actors to bring in trend the bulky six-pack body. The trend carried on and several actors even before the release of their debut aimed to have a well built, chiselled body. However, this was not the norm before the 90s. Popular actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Dev Anand, Shashi Kapoor and Dilip Kumar had a lean body structure and that never affected their craft.
The current trend of hitting the gyms and consuming additional protein for a bulky shape has damaged the image of beauty in the minds of the mass to a large extent. In the bid to gain results in a short span of time, people tend to consume steroids which eventually have a harmful impact on the body.
Actor-singer Ayushmann Khurrana recently posted pictures of his bathroom selfie and wrote about his lifestyle. "No protein shakes. No gluten. No multivitamin tabs. All organic. Have water 30 minutes before and after meals. I have stopped having eggs too. You can't really trust poultry in India," he writes. Further suggesting some eating habits he wrote, "If you can be a vegetarian nothing like that. Lactose can also take rest. And most importantly, no processed food."
The actor has a lean yet well-built body and maintains healthy food habits and exercise. Posting another bathroom selfie, the actor wrote, "Have lost extra muscle because of my self-imposed supplement ban." Talking about avoiding lactose and gluten, he wrote, "No, I am not gluten intolerant. I am not even lactose intolerant. But I realised you generally do better without them."
Akshay Kumar is one of the fittest actors in Bollywood. He is known for following a very disciplined and healthy lifestyle. However, the actor has never had more than four or six abs. In an interview in 2014, while talking about fitness, Akshay Kumar had said that all those who boast of a great sculpt with abs in a short span of time are doing so with the help of steroids and additional supplements. The actor had further stated that developing multiple abs takes time if done without any additional supplements.
However, the trend seems to be going down, with actors like Ayushmann Khurrana, Ranbir Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao maintaining a not so bulky yet chiselled body.
