There was a time when six-pack abs was an alien concept in Bollywood.

Not anymore, obviously.

While B-town hunks like Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan and John Abraham started off their careers looking like boys-next-door, today they can kick up a storm just by flaunting their cool abs.

Here's a quick look at their transformations. VOTE for the look you prefer!

 

Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan

This honey-eyed actor became a superstar overnight with his first film Kaho Na... Pyaar Hai.

While Duggu always had the Greek-God looks, he has worked on his body over the years, and the picture on the right is testimony to that fact.

Hrithik's lean body and lover boy looks from 2003's Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon can make girls go weak in their knees even today but his chiseled body, which the actor attained for 2013's Krrish 3 is undoubtedly drool-worthy.

Salman Khan

Salman Khan

Salman Khan has become synonymous with fitness. He has never shied away from going shirtless on the big screen courtesy his toned body.

But when Khan made his debut as a hero with Maine Pyaar Kiya in 1989, it was his chocolate boy image that caught everyone's attention, not his muscles.

Of course, when Salman added the muscles -- like this still from his 2007 film Partner shows us -- nobody complained.

Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan sure knows how to romance the ladies onscreen.

It's either the intense eyes and sincerity (he shows that in plenty in 1997's Dil Toh Pagal Hai, pictured left) or by flaunting his abs (like he does in his 2014 film, Happy New Year, pictured right).

John Abraham

John Abraham

John Abraham was a successful model before he became an actor, so he had the muscles even when he made his debut in 2003's Jism.

 

But he's looking beefier these days, especially in his latest film Rocky Handsome.

Ajay Devgn

Ajay Devgn

Ajay Devgn had never really shown off his body in his earlier films.

All that changed with 2008's Golmaal 2, and then of course in 2014's Singham Returns.

The muscles seem to have taken up more screen space.

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan

What a big transformation we see in Aamir Khan!

From his cute Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke days in 1993 to his hunky Ghajini time in 2008, Aamir has only gotten bigger.

And don't even get us started on Dangal.

Akshay Kumar

Akshay Kumar

Martial Arts expert Akshay Kumar has always been into fitness.

He was one of the few actors, who went shirtless often in the 1990s. Here's a still from his 1998 film, Keemat.

The hair has gone, and the body has bulked up some more, as we see from Akki's 2009 film, Blue.

Emraan Hashmi

Emraan Hashmi

Yes, serial kisser Emraan Hashmi has also succumbed to the 'need of the hour' and got himself some muscles.

His toned look in 2003's Murder wasn't good enough. So he got himself bigger muscles in the hit film's second installment in 2011.

Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor had a boyish charm when he entered the industry, and he took his time to add on the muscles.

They appeared only in 2009 in Kaminey, but it's become even bigger for his latest film Udta Punjab.
