Seriously, what’s the obsession with actors showing off their backs? The makers of the upcoming blockbuster Tubelight have released the first poster of the movie, that has Salman Khan showing off his back once again. The poster of Tubelight has an intriguing feel – a dusty brown feel, with Salman Khan in a tramp like attire, and yeah, letting his back talk to us. This is not the first time that Salman Khan has turned his back on his movie posters. Actually, many of our male stars love flaunting off their backs in the first look of their movies, as if they feel revealing their faces in the second poster of their movies make a better impact.

This is also a trend that we have seen in Hollywood movies as well., like in Captain America: Winter Soldier, The Dark Knight, The Raid: Redemption, Battleship, and others. However, in this special feature, let’s look at 7 actors in Bollywood who have flaunted their backs on the posters, and that includes Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir too…
