Bollywood's hottest hunks, clicked!
He may be only 27 years old, but photographer Gaurav C Bhat has managed to click Bollywood's biggest stars. He's even managed to click Hollywood's big star Angelina Jolie.
We saw the heroines he's clicked in the first part of his interview. Now, check out the actors, seen through the eyes of the lensman.
Sanjay Dutt is my lucky charm. I have done five films with him. I started my career with him in Tatasthu. It was he who recommended my name for Kidnap. I respect him a lot because he respects women. When he speaks to a woman, he never looks into their eyes -- he keeps his eyes low.
He is a prankster. I'm always on my toes when I'm shooting him. That's why I love it. He does not like photo shoots; he is camera shy. If I tell him to pose, he asks me to hurry up. So I don't tell him when I start clicking.
Sanjay's face has character.
Sanjay is very helpful. I have seen people asking him for money. He never says no. He's a real life Munnabhai. He had invited me for his wedding anniversary. When I went, I saw that he greeted everyone and treated everyone equally.

'Akshay can unzip your pants and you will not even know'
Akshay Kumar is another prankster. He can unzip your pants or remove your wrist watch and you will not even know. At the same time, he is reserved. You can't enter his space.
He makes you feel comfortable when you're shooting him. He gives good pictures and poses well.
I wanted to shoot some pictures with him on the sets of Blue after the shooting for the day was done. He was on a boat. He immediately agreed. He took off his shirt and jumped into the water.
We turned the boat and Akshay held on to a rod under the boat. Half his body was immersed in the water. It took me 20 minutes to shoot this picture. He kept hanging from the rod until I was done. We got some great pictures.

'The first time I clicked Salman Khan was on the sets of Saawariya'
The first time I clicked Salman Khan was on the sets of Saawariya.
I would be on the sets everyday. One day, during the shoot, I told Salman that I would like to take his photographs in the costume that he was wearing, as he was wearing that on the film's poster. He agreed, once the shooting for the day was done.
After the shoot, I was ready with my camera. Salman saw me and said goodbye. I told him I would be waiting for him to click those photographs. He just smiled and went to his makeup van to change.
Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali told me to go after him and call him. But I told him that Salman would come back, like he promised.
Salman changed out of his costume, and came out of his van. After 15 minutes, he realised that I had not packed up yet. So he returned to the makeup van, changed into his costume again and came back to click those photographs.

'Emraan is very lazy when it comes to photo shoots'
Emraan Hashmi is known as a serial kisser but in real life, he's very shy.
He loves playing pranks on you, and you will not even realise. He got a good film like Jannat after a long time and he acted brilliantly. He works very hard.
He's got eight packs now, without any steroids. I love working with Emraan, like I do with Sanjay Dutt. But he's very lazy when it comes to photo shoots. You have to call him many times. But once on the job, he gives excellent shots.

'I had played cupid between Kangna and Adhyayan'
Adhyayan Suman is my best friend. I've known him from his first film Haal-E Dil. His role was mostly edited out in the film. I had done his portfolio.
Mohit Suri was looking for a new face for his film, Raaz 2. I spoke to Mukesh Bhatt about Adhyayan, and also gave him some pictures. They selected him for the film and signed a three-film contract with him. He was in Vishesh Films' Jashn too.
Adhyayan and I meet every other day. We party together and even spend New Year's Eve together. In fact, I had played cupid between Kangna Ranaut and him. I have known him for four years now.

'Zayed is a hippie at heart'
Zayed Khan is a total party animal. He loves playing poker. He is a hippie at heart.
Zayed is my best friend. He will always come to the rescue of his friends.
He did not get the best of films but he is proving himself now. He put 100 percent in whatever he does. He is a complete movie buff.
He's in love with bikes. He uses his bikes, and when he's done with it, he gifts it to his friends and buys another. His bikes are expensive -- costing Rs 10 lakh. Still, he gifts them.
He wears a wrist watch worth Rs 70 lakhs. He takes care of his staff and treats everybody equally.
