Three years ago, Bollywood went crazy when Kareena Kapoor emerged from the water wearing a green bikini and looking almost anorexic. Size-zero had invaded the tinsel town and every heroine worth her body toed the line. Not to be left behind, their male counterparts rushed to the nearest gym after Aamir Khan flaunted his eight packs in 'Gajini'. Here's a look at actors who changed their body and the industry's image.
Kareena in 'Tashan': When she came out of the water wearing the green bikini, Kareena took the whole nation by storm. Some called her 'Size Zero', some labeled her as 'anorexic' but there was no denying that the Kapoor girl was looking fitter than ever. Fresh from the break-up with Shahid Kapoor, Kareena hired Payal Gidwani (yoga) and Rujuta Diwekar (diet) and transformed her body completely. In four months, she went from flab to fab.
Priyanka in 'Dostana': When your costume consists of shorts, tank tops and tees and the background is Miami Beach, you cannot look dowdy. Priyanka hit the gym with vengeance and the result was quite visible. The actress looked luscious when she donned a golden swimsuit a la Ursula Andress's in 'Dr No'.
Hrithik Roshan in 'Dhoom 2': This comes as no surprise as the actor with drop dead good looks works hard on his body. The super thief looked super hot as he danced
Vidya Balan in 'Dirty Picture': She showed the whole world that you can still look hot with extra layers of fat. Vidya's bold role as 'Silk' got all the possible awards in the country for Best Actress.
John Abraham in 'Dostana': The actor has the most luscious derriere in Bollywood and his peek-a-boo act in the film earned him quite a huge number of female fans. The actor has now gone the JLo way and has insured his asset against 'any possible risk to his famous body part'. We too pray for its well-being!
Aamir Khan in 'Gajini': It took 13 months and a daily regimen of four hours to get the most talked about eight-packs. Aamir's 'Gajini' body was fueled mostly with 16 egg whites through the day and atleast 1000 abdomen crunches everyday. Eight packs, anyone?
