While traditional notions of what's acceptable or not still apply to Pakistani and Indian women (remember the outcry when Nargis Fakhri graced a newspaper in a prominent ad?) Pakistani men are free to flaunt their bods — and get away with it.
Combine that with a recent craze for fitness and what have you got? Shirtless pictures galore.
Here are 5 Pakistani actors who are super-proud of their gym bodies.
1) Imran Abbas
Now Imran Abbas doesn't have a six pack... but he doesn't care. He woke up like this (coffee mug in hand as proof).
2) Feroze Khan
Feroze Khan's ripped body is an achievement he isn't done celebrating.
3) Ali Zafar
Ali Z likes his new bod so much he wrote a song about it.
4) Mohib Mirza
5) Faisal Quraishi
Also shy, Faisal Qureshi just shows off his brand new biceps.
6) Noor Hassan
Yeah, Noor Hassan casually lugs around those muscles.
7) Moammar Rana
What's a topless shot without a vast ocean? Moammar Rana needed this vista to capture his body in all its glory.
