Guess who was happiest the most when ab-licious, hot bod Salman Khan dropped his shirt crooning O O Jaane Jaana? Nope, not the girls, not the boys, not even us the kids of 90’s. According to Sohail Khan, it was the mothers of India who rejoiced in awe of the sight of Sallu’s abs – because, well, their kids were drinking milk now.
At a recent fitness event, this is what Sohail had to say about Salman Khan’s vanity projecting fitness since the 90’s.
“When we did ‘O O Jaane Jaana,’ a lot of people said Salman did the song bare chested and that is why it became a hit. In reality, many kids started having milk after that song happened. Many mothers used to tell their kids if you want a body like Salman Khan, drink milk.”
Further, Sohail feels that flaunting one’s body is a way of encouraging fitness in the world.
“Today when any actor or actress flaunts his or her body I see it as a positive thing as kids follow them. You cannot make a good body with bad habits. You have to have good healthy habits to have a good body. So when Sanjay Dutt, Salman, Suniel Shetty, John Abraham, Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone or Shilpa Shetty showcase their fitness, a lot of people take it as their sex appeal. It is not their sex appeal. You have to look at it in a different way in the sense that they are showcasing themselves so that kids can follow. You can’t achieve that body out of bad habits”
Ahem, sorry to burst the bubble, but Sohail Khan’s glamorous perspective quite doesn’t resonate with a healthy living. Cutting off carbs and surviving on protein shakes to get those cheese-grating abs might be good to look on screen for a while, but calling it a road to health and fitness?
No Sohail, we don’t buy that!
