Bollywood item girl Bipasha Basu is the latest woman to heap praises on megastar Salman Khan’s body, calling him a fitness icon.


At the launch of her second fitness DVD, ‘Break Free’, Bipasha spoke about some of the fit hunks of Bollywood. She said it’s tough to pick one among Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan as the fittest.
“Hrithik is an extremely handsome guy, great body,” she said at the DVD launch, “He has a lot of issues which he fights and he triumphs to look the way he does. Akshay Kumar is my first hero. He is a guy who is not just physically fit, he is also mentally fit.”
As for action superstar Sallu, she says: “Salman Khan has brought fitness into our industry. He is just going to be iconic forever. He is the fitness icon.” Bip’s latest DVD is based on dance workouts and we hope against hope that she picks one of these three Bollywood brawns for her next DVD.


In early 2010 she unveiled her first fitness DVD titled “Love Yourself” which was launched by her the-then beau John Abraham who got her into the fitness world. John has been known to be the fittest in Bollywood. He has redefined his body in most of his films like “Dhoom”, “Dostana” and “Force”.  However, following their split in 2011, the two have not even seen eye to eye.


It was a known fact that John and Bipasha never maintained any healthy equation with Salman Khan following a disagreement between the two hunks during a world tour. However, since the break-up of the couple both the parties were seen mending their equations with Salman. Bipasha however, was seen trying too hard. She made her way to “Bigg Boss” to promote her fitness DVD and get it launched it by Salman Khan.


Bipasha referred to Salman Khan as the ‘fittest icon’, though we know her opinion would have been entirely different had she been with John.
