Going by the current trend in Bollywood, it seems that the moustache fever has gripped tinsel town.

But does it suit all the men?

We take a look at some actors, who've fallen victim to the moustache trend. Click through the slides, and vote for the actor who looks best in one, at the end of the slide show!

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan is an actor who strongly believes in method acting. He not only changes his appearances but also believes in delivering authenticity with each of the character. The actor will be seen in a chevron moustache for his upcoming untitled thriller directed by Reema Kagti. Earlier Aamir was seen in a moustache with long locks in Mangal Pandey: The Rising.

Salman Khan

Salman Khan's quirky but immensely popular character Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg had the actor in a new avatar as he wore a pencil-thin moustache, walked with a swagger and hung gold-rimmed aviators at the back of his shirt collar. The last bit became a craze and was copied by most of his fans.

Saif Ali Khan

Perhaps one of the best looking men to sport a moustache, Saif Ali Khan looks dashing in Prakash Jha's upcoming film Aarakshan, where he will be seen playing a college student cum dairy owner. 

The actor was previously seen sporting a moustache in Tashan.

Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan played a geek in parts of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, and sported oiled hair, thick framed glasses and a moustache.

His Surinder Sahni was madly in love with Anushka Sharma's Tani but it was only after he got rid of his geeky look that he could win his love over.

SRK in the past was seen in a moustache in Amol Palekar's Paheli.

Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan has been very forthcoming when it comes to experimenting with his look. This handsome actor kept a moustache for the first time to play the historical character of Emperor Akbar.


The moustache changed his entire look and gave him a royal look which won him lots of awards and accolades.

Ajay Devgn

Whenever Ajay Devgn wore the moustache look, he did it with style and panache. A moustache connoisseur, if you will, his finest moustache moment was in Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai where he put up a stellar performance as smuggler Sultan Mirza.

His other notable moustache performance was in movies like Gangajaal, Omkara and Pyar Toh Hona Hi Tha.

Sanjay Dutt

From his long hair days in Saajan to the bald look in the upcoming remake of Agneepath, Sanjay has tried quite a few hairstyles.

It was Shootout at Lokhandwala and Mission Kashmir where he looked very different, as Sanjay Dutt sported a perfect moustache and doubled it up with a cop performance in both his movies.

Shahid Kapoor

Giving his boy-next-door image a more mature look, Shahid Kapoor will soon be seen sporting a thin upper-lip in his forthcoming film Mausam, where he plays a pilot. His father Pankaj Kapur directs the movie.

Emraan Hashmi

For a change, Emraan Hashmi was not making news for his smooching scenes in the movie but for the fierce look he sported for the character of a young underworld don Shoaib Khan in Milan Lutharia's Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai.

The actor got the perfect retro look as he appeared with slightly long hair, huge glasses, printed shirts, big bottom trousers and a big mustache.

Arjun Rampal

Bold and presumptuously daring, Arjun Rampal's moustache coupled with the long mane made him look like a real rocker. Who can forget Rock On, especially the climax when he walks in, hair flowing, playing his guitar.

Abhishek Bachchan

Abhishek Bachchan, who wears a stubble in real life, went for a rather thick moustache for his role in Mani Ratnam's Raavan. The movie bombed at the box office but that didn't deter the Junior B to sport similar facial hair in his upcoming film Dum Maaro Dum.

Akshay Kumar

Akshay Kumar joined the list of actors as he experimented with his looks when he was seen with a very thin mooch while essaying the role of a cook who travels to China in Nikhil Adwani's Chandni Chow to China

Earlier, Akshay was seen sporting a moustache for the movie Jaanwar

Neil Nitin Mukesh

Neil Nitin Mukesh joined the bandwagon, when he wore a moustache in 7 Khoon Maaf.

Playing an army major, the moustache did make him look macho and added a lot to his personality.
