On September 24-25, one week after the 2011 Olympia Weekend, the IFBB Pro League is headed to Mumbai, India. India’s only professional bodybuilder, Sheru Aangrish, has teamed up with the IFBB to bring the first ever professional bodybuilding contest to India. With the support of IFBB Pro League President Jim Manion and the guidance of Olympia promoter Robin Chang, Sheru is ready to deliver a first-class event.

The line-up for the first ever Sheru Classic features Jay Cutler, Phil Heath, Branch Warren, Kai Greene, Victor Martinez, and Dennis Wolf. You can expect one of these men to be crowned Mr. Olympia one week prior to appearing in Mumbai. And you can guarantee the other five will be in India looking to de-throne the champ.

The ladies will also be representing in India at the Sheru Classic Figure Championships, featuring Nicole Wilkins, Erin Stern, and Cheryl Brown.

FLEX Magazine and FLEXonline will be in the middle of all the action as the exclusive media outlet of the Sheru Classic. To get you ready for what’s to come, we caught up with Jim Manion, Bob Cicherillo, Nicole Wilkins, and Kai Greene to hear their thoughts on the trip to India! CHECK OUT THE VIDEO BELOW:
