Post Dabangg , hand-to-hand bare-chested hero-villain combats are in vogue.Two of our shyest pinup boys Akshay Kumar and Ronit Roy would be going bare-chested for a hand-to-hand combat in film where they play hero and arch-villain.

The climax of the latest Akshay Kumar actioner Boss, a remake of the 2010 Malayalam hit Pokkiri Raja which was to be shot in March 2013 has now been preponed to January 2013 for reasons of locational availability.

The climax would have Akshay Kumar locked in a one-to-one combat with the film's villain ,a nasty law-breaking cop played by Ronit Roy. The fight was to be shot on a Mumbai dockyard in March. But with the necessary permission for the same coming in two months ahead oc schedule, both Akshay Kumar and Ronit Roy have exactly a month to get into shape.

Says a source, `Not that Akshay and Ronit are not in shape. But the climactic combat requires a certain physical uniformity between the hero and villain.Director Tony d'Souza has asked both the actors to synchronize their screen presence.Akshay is by nature gaunt while Ronit is bulkier. They both need to work out their physicality to look combatively compatible on screen.`

The plan is to stage a Dabangg styled one-to-one combat with both the actors going bare-chested. A tall order,considering the time constraints.

Says our source, `While earlier Akshay and Ronit had a good three months to beef up they now have barely a month to become 'bare'-able.`

Incidentally Akshay Kumar has desisted from taking his shirt off in most of his films so far. As for Ronit he was asked to do the needful in Student Of The Year for a basketball sequence where he was ogled at by the gay dean(Rishi Kapoor) .

Ronit preferred to keep his vest on.
