So back in November, the Shave India movement W.A.L.S. (Woman Against Lazy Stubble) was launched apparently by a group of ladies that were fighting for a small piece of equality among the sexes. While I can't say I agree with the campaign (after all, it seems really just like a publicity stunt to increase sales for Gillette with no consideration for male preference or even religion), it got me thinking about our favorite hunks. I think almost all of them have experimented with facial hair at one point or another, sometimes for a film, sometimes not. Here's a look at a couple of our leading men...
It's a toss up for me to Abhishek. I like the clean look, he looks very sweet and young, but the beard lends an air of sophistication for him I think.
I much MUCH prefer Aamir's clean shaven look than the full beard, even to the little goatee in DCH, and especially to the crazy giant mustache in Mangal Pandey. Facial hair ages Aamir I think, and even without the botox I think he has a youthful face that's a shame to cover up.
It's a toss up for me for our man Akki. I think he can pull off both looks with ease, though I did see one pic where the beard was looking a little salt and pepper, which made him look much older than he is I think.
This one's a no brainer for me. I hate to see Hrithik's face hidden behind so much hair, though I have to say that a 5 o'clock shadow suits him just fine, except for maybe in this picture...
I'm sorry - came across this and could not not post it, plus it wins my vote for favorite WTF picture! Hrithik, what were you thinking!?
Maybe he's trying to get rid of the image as the cute boy next door, after all Imran did just get engaged, but I hate this kind of half grown in beard look. There's nothing wrong with being just plain adorable!
Well, I know it was for Rocket Singh, and I think I read somewhere that Ranbir couldn't wait to shave off his beard, and I say thank goodness. Definitely a better look for our boy Kapoor.
The man whose look we all love to hate. Yes, I will jump on the wagon that exclaimed hooray when Saif showed up to a recent event with a nice clean face, though I also have to admit that, again, I don't mind a little shadow on him also. Just not the full meal deal, complete with sunglasses and bandanna. Please Kareena, let's not let that happen again!
This is a tough one for me. Shahid is so incredibly good looking that it's almost sacrilidge to cover any of his face up, but he still looks great with a little bit of beard. As long as he keeps it short and trimmed, I can definitely get behind the look.
Beard, no beard, upside down or sideways, I'll take Sharu any way I can have him. I actually don't even mind the moustache look, which he's had in way more movies than I thought. Though if I'm being completely honest, I really am glad that he prefers a clean face. Why cover up perfection!?
And, that's the end of my fangirl topic today!
