Everything Shah Rukh Khan does (or doesn't for that matter) makes news. And so it's no surprise that his apparent weight reduction hasn't escaped the discerning eye of his well-wishers and otherwise.  


The superstar's past few appearances suggest he's shed quite a few kilos and is looking uncharacteristically gaunt. While some believe it's an outcome of his excessive smoking habit, others attributed it to the A-lister's alleged poor health.  

 

Khan himself tweeted about it saying, 'Need to feed my face more than I have been. Today my wedding ring nearly slipped and fell through... ha ha.'


Whether its idle talk started by his detractors or Khan's conscious efforts to prepare for a role as superhero in the forthcoming Ra One, the man knows best.


Meanwhile these snapshots reveal the curious case of King Khan's startling weight loss. Take a peek.

With Om Shanti Om, SRK kick-started the trend of well-publicized body-building after he went overboard to attain a six-pack to flaunt against the Dard-e-disco track, which was followed by Kareena Kapoor's struggle for a pencil-thin frame and Aamir Khan's rigorously-build Ghajini physique. 

Sadly, the lean, mean avatar isn't working well on the famously dynamic 44-year-old. Instead it makes him appear rather sickly and aged.

You know something's terribly wrong when a hero begins to look thinner than his leading lady. Especially when she happens to be Kareena Kapoor, the resident queen of size zeros. 

While we appreciate his endeavours at making Ra One a one-of-a-kind Sci-Fi experience, considering the pressure for success after how fellow Khans have aced blockbusters like Aamir's 3 Idiots and Salman's Dabangg -- SRK needs to take a chill pill and pile on some calories, quick and good.

One of the worst side-effects of dramatic weight loss is its impact on a person's face. That explains the odd-size of SRK's dimples -- they're digging deeper than usual. Nothing charming about that, is there?

One of the best-dressed actors of Bollywood, SRK appears a tad too trim for our liking in an otherwise dapper suit. Overreaction or fact?

Go on readers, tell us what you think.
