Indian men are weighing in with their assets to beat women in a sexist cleavage contest

The British tabloid, The Sun, has launched a contest to find the best breasts in Britain. And Indian men appear to be quite serious about winning.

On March 30, The Sun launched its “Bust in Britain” competition, inviting “busty selfies” of women. The winner would be awarded £1,000 (Rs95,000) and a photo shoot with The Sun.

The tabloid has so far received “hundreds of bravellous entries,” it says on its website. But the contest invited massive interest from unexpected quarters—Indian men.

Men in India took to Twitter to troll the contest by uploading selfies of their torsos. Many also suggested male film actors and politicians who could win the competition.

Here are some tweets that provided a comic relief to the Sun’s rather offensive and sexist contest:

Bollywood actor-turned-politician Govinda was one of the favourite suggestions:

Other Bollywood stars who were suggested for the contest were veteran actor Mithun…

Padma Bhushan awardee Anupam Kher…

Late Sanjeev Kumar…

Actor and Bharatiya Janata Party’s member of parliament Paresh Rawal…

Bad man Shakti Kapoor…

Actor and producer Tusshar Kapoor…

And superstar Aamir Khan.

Tweeps in India thought politicians in the country could also make for solid contenders. Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav were among those suggested:

Fitness enthusiast and yoga guru Ramdev was also suggested as an entry from India.
