Ali Zafar Hates Being Fair

NEW DELHI, February 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

New Delhi: In the current issue of Men's Health, the Pakistani singer and actor discusses the modern man's biggest preoccupations: sunscreen lotions and six-pack abs

A million-dollar smile: Rs 1 lakh. A flawless complexion: Rs 45,000. Washboard abs: Rs 3 lakh. The feel-good factor: Priceless?

"Nonsense," says Pakistani singer and actor Ali Zafar. In a time and age when people are increasingly spending a fortune on artificially enhancing their appearance, the Mere Brother Ki Dulhan star who has been voted Asia's second sexiest man in a poll last year, has spoken out vehemently against the practice in Men's Health, the country's largest selling men's magazine.

"Don't blindly follow what television and the glossies dish out to you," Zafar writes in MH. "Models earn their bread and butter by looking perfect. Sporting a six-pack is part of their job, not yours."

Startled with the rising number of Indian men discussing the SPF of their sunscreen lotions in their locker rooms, Zafar feels that the concept of beauty has been misunderstood by most. "Like fashion, the standard of beauty keeps changing with time. Can you imagine a bare-chested Rajesh Khanna flexing his bulging biceps while serenading an anorexic Sharmila Tagore in Amar Prem?" he argues in the article.

The star feels that a lot of men fret a bit too much about their looks. Pinned down by peer pressure, some even go beyond their means to achieve that perfect set of six-pack abs or that cleverly-advertised fair complexion.

"If you are a banker with a nine-to-nine job or a journalist who has to ensure that the newspaper goes to bed on time, don't let the lack of a chiselled body pull you down," Zafar says. "Not everyone is genetically blessed to look physically perfect. Aspiring to be a certain way is good, but don't do it at the cost of being stressed."
