Before you attack us after reading the headline, please hear us out. We like beards as much as you do, hell, we perhaps are more partial to them that you give us credit for. After all, what’s not to like in a badass face-mane, if we might call it that? It frames your face well and makes you look intimidating (so much win!). But, but, Bollywood clearly thinks otherwise.
2018 has anyway been a pretty weird year in terms of grooming trends, but this one here is perhaps the most outrageous of them all. People are shaving their beards off! The same people we used to look up to, not so long ago, for their kickass beards, are now giving us the exact opposite facial hair aesthetic to look up to.
Here, we have compiled a list of 7 actors whose recent makeovers prove that the beard is officially dead.
Baba’s beard game was so on point that every man wanted to have one just like him. Now, however, he got rid of his majestic facial hair, but his cop ‘stache is in focus, thanks to his ‘Simmba’ makeover.
John got rid of his famous stubble for ‘Parmanu’, and made the pornstache look manlier than ever.
Even though Varun never had a big, thick beard (except in ‘Badlapur’), he always kept a stubble. But he got rid of it and embraced a moustache instead for ‘Sui Dhaga’.
Fawad Khan is one of those rare people who is blessed with a face, that can pull off any kind of facial hair. However, thanks to ‘Khoobsurat’ and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, his female fan following started swooning over that beard. But he too got rid of his beard and is sporting a high fashion, edgy AF moustache now.
Ranbir was always comfortable with a clean-shaven face, thanks to the Kapoor genes. However, he fell in love with a stubble, and then clearly fell out of love with it recently. He does look good with a clean shave though, doesn’t he?
Aamir Khan’s facial hair is just like him – it keeps changing according to the role he is playing at the time. For ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, he got rid of his beard first and then decided to bring his awesome handlebar moustache into the limelight.
Ajay got his best facial hair aesthetic with his role for ‘Singham’. He clearly realized that he has never looked better, and decided to just stick with it.
