There was a lot of speculation about SRK's eight-pack body after photographer Daboo Ratnani posted a shirtless photo of the actor on Twitter. A lot of Salman's fans cried foul and speculated that the image was photoshopped as according to them SRK is not capable of building such a physique.

Eventually, Red Chillies posted an official video of Shahrukh's abs workout in a 42-second teaser, shutting down all the fake body speculations.

Previously, a video of Salman Khan's body from a scene in Yash Raj films' Ek Tha Tiger special effects put up by a user on Vine went viral. The video shows the flabby body of Salman Khan being digitally worked on to give him the abs that are required for the final look of the movie.

However, fans defended the star saying that he was "not well at the time of 'Ek Tha Tiger' shoot."

Previously, Salman praised SRK for his hard work and dedication at the gym, admitting that his abs are in fact real.

Sallu stated that he thinks that SRK's abs are "hundred percent genuine" after being asked what he thought about his rival's body.

He said, "It is not a fake 8-pack. He has become really ribbed. In fact that picture that you see is not even touched up picture, it's a raw picture. I am really impressed with the way he is looking right now. He is really fit.

"It takes a lot of hard work to get into that shape, and I know because I do that kind of work. And it takes a lot of hard work to get that ribbed. And there is nothing fake about that. It is hundred percent genuine," continued Salman.
