If we go by recent sightings at the Oscars this year and in Bollywood, facial fuzz has made a glorious comeback.
While Shah Rukh Khan, who rocked a carefully groomed unkempt beard in Don 2, has given way to the younger lot in Bollywood, some of the most gorgeous and talented men in Hollywood have ditched their daily shaving ritual too.
But what do YOU make of this filmi fad? Who does the beard look the most SEXY on? VOTE!
The newest enfant terrible in Bollywod, Ranveer Singh is part of two exciting films -- Lootera and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela -- in which he sports facial fuzz.
While we are yet to get a peak in the films, Singh has been flaunting his new beard at social dos, most notably at awards shows.
