We have seen our Bollywood heroes acting half naked in many films. They are justified to do so because a hero has to prove himself that he is fully loaded with six packs and big mussels on him to protect the heroine as well as the people from the villains and thus attracting the audiances with heroism.
But, here is a real hero none other than Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who wants the people to see his big mussels and his daring and dashing nature. Recently, he gave a pose to photographers half nakedly riding a horse in Tuba at South Siberia. Later, he enjoyed swimming in a freezed lake in the same location. Perhaps, he wants to assure his people that their Prime Minister is physically fit, and can protect them like a hero in the films.
