She's been in the news recently for the launch of her own fitness DVD and the fabulously toned physique she's seen sporting therein. From curvy to taut, her body has been through quite a few mind-numbing changes.

The Bong bombshell's hunky boyfriend is not far behind on the fitness bandwagon.

John has always rocked a chiselled look, but he took it to another level in Dostana -- who can forget the yellow trunks? Whether it was supplements or hardcore gymming, it worked!

Does she promote a positive body image, according to you?

The slim 'n' sexy newly-minted Mrs Raj Kundra has reigned as Bollywood's best bod for the longest time. Which makes you wonder sometimes whether you're chasing just a dream if you want to look like that.

Okay, we're all tired of seeing Sallu take his shirt off. But that still drives the female population gaga and don't forget, he's over 40 now. Anyone else you know that age who looks this good?

This Indian tennis champ is only 25, but he's making all the right moves on the courts. Standing tall at 5'11", all those years of beating the ball around have gifted him an athletic bod.

This South Indian superstar pulled a Ghajini before Aamir Khan did and he has a physique that is well worth a second glance. Of course, the fact that you're in show business means you're in top shape, but at 34, Surya is in top form.

What do you think?

With Kaminey, Shahid ditched his chocolate boy image once and for all, putting his rippling chest and bulging biceps on display. Always health-conscious, he took body-sculpting to a whole new level with his appearance in the movie.

Is he your gymming idol or could you do with a body that's more achievable?
