Real men wear stubble. Okay, we just made that up, but you have to agree that the clean shaven, “good boy” look has long gone out of fashion. A minimum one-day stubble is a must to get the sighs of admiration from the ladies. Bollywood’s hunks know this and manage to keep their facial hair just right. Let’s check out how Bollywood’s men like their moustaches and beards.
There’s the clean shaven Aamir Khan who sacrificed his facial hair for that boyish look in 3 Idiots, and then there’s the tough-cop look. Aamir went from a full beard to a handlebar for the shooting of Reema Kagti’s film, in which he plays a cop. In fact, Aamir’s been sporting that look for months now. We wonder what he did for that item number in Delhi Belly. …
Of all the stars to fail in the moustache look, did it have to be Salman Khan? No mincing words here – the brown (why?) muchi does nothing to make this Khan any sexier. Nothing. What do you think??
Shah Rukh Khan
After Kaminey, there was no going back to the chocolate-boy image for Shahid Kapoor. We think Sasha needs to tune it a little bit more before it looks perfect on him. And the thin Mausam moustache looks just right.
Saif Ali Khan
You don’t need to tell a nawab how to dress. Saif Ali Khan has always managed to look dapper. And though he looks quite handsome without the beard, he has almost ditched the clean shaven look! (P.S. the Kurbaan French beard gets a no-no.)
For all we know, Sanjay Dutt should stick to his beard for one good reason: it hides his upcoming double chin.
What started as Abhishek Bachchan‘s wild look for Raavan continued (albeit, more tamed) with Dum Maaro Dum, and frankly, we’re not complaining! Looks like father-son don’t believe in keeping it clean.
While we absolutely adore Abhay in his grunge, non-shaven look, the pencil moustache is a downer. Even though the beard hides those sexy dimples, a little stubble will do no harm!
So what if Vivek Oberoi made it to this list only because of his fabulously groomed moustache? Vivek carried the Rakht Charitra hangover for quite some time before good sense prevailed and he chopped off the handlebar before his wedding.
