Although Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif have given Bollywood a bit of relief with Tiger Zinda Hai at the end of this year, one is all too aware that the year that is about to go by hasn’t been too inspiring in terms of Box Office numbers.
But, we have seen many celebrities indulging in multiple shoots for tabloids, which have resulted in visuals that inspire us to be a better version of ourselves.
So, in order to help you choose your next New Year’s Resolution, here are 9 such magazine covers that have or are sure to give you #Goals.
- Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif – Vigue India (December 2017)
Ahead of the release of Tiger Zinda Hai, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif graced the cover of the December issue of Vogue India where the two were seen having a scorching hot chemistry, but at the same time were observed to be keeping a low profile in terms of clothing. With this, Bhai and Kat clearly prove it to us that you don’t need glitz and glam to make an impact. All you need is a magnetic presence and a soul-piercing look.
- Shah Rukh Khan – GQ India (January 2017 issue)
Well, does the king of billions of hearts really need to make a style statement on a magazine cover? Well, all it can take is one single look and you are bound to be floored by him.

With a sunny sky and the blue beach in the backdrop of the picture, Tiger looked as hot as one could be at that time of the year. GQ Magazine named the issue- “Tiger burning bright”. It was definitely one of the best covers of the year.
