From being scoffed upon to being looked up to, beards have surely come a long way. Gone are the days when being clean shaven meant being the most eligible bachelor in town, that honor now belongs to the mighty stubble. Our beloved celebs of course, have to sport a long beard or get rid of it completely as per the requirement of their roles. This changing aesthetics of our actors with and without beards. constantly give us something to look up to, however, some looks stay in our hearts longer than others. So let’s compare and see where our heart lies about celebrities with and without beards.
1. Kartik Aaryan
Kartik Aaryan has that lovable naughty personality which he brings with him in most of his movies like Luka Chuppi and Pyaar Ka Punchnama and most of the time it is best served with a clean look or a stubble at most. However, his full grown stay-at-home beard is just as lovable.
2. Randeep Hooda
Randeep Hooda has a macho personality, no doubt about it. But have you noticed how his macho-ness goes to another level when he’s sporting a beard? Just take a look at his avatar in Highway!
3. Saif Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan looks dapper in nearly all his avatars, but in his earlier roles he had that boyish charm which he completely shed in his look in Race 2. Truly the look of a Nawab!
4. Ayushmann Khurrana
Ayushmann is one actor that looks tempting with or without a beard. But, considering his looks in his recent movies like Dreamgirl and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, we’d definitely prefer him with his stubble.
5. Shahid Kapoor
Shahid Kapoor has made us skip a beat with his messy hair-do a lot of times, combine that with a sexy stubble and you get the too-sexy-to-handle Kabir Singh. Speaking of, how many of you wish he’d keep his Kabir Singh beard?
6. Ranveer Singh
Ranveer Singh, the most snappy dresser of Bollywood, has been giving guys major facial hair goals since his role in Padmaavat. Though, his moustache-only look from Simmba is also a killer, we still prefer the whole package.
7. Shah Rukh Khan
Though he mostly appears with a clean look, we can’t help but miss those rare days when we SRK treats us with that stubbly look. Remember those good ol’ days when he sported that beard in Raees?
8. Hrithik Roshan
Hrithik’s manly man looks never cease to wow us regardless of a beard. If his clean look were a cake, then his stubble would be the icing on top of it. Though Hrithik gave us a glimpse of his beardo self in Super 30, we still love his avatar in War.
9. Ranbir Kapoor
Ranbir’s boyish charm with his clean look is just as desirable to us as his rough stubble which makes us go a little “Besharam” for him. But we still keep going back to his Ae Dil Hai Mushkil look.
10. Farhan Akhtar
Ah, the man of many talents, Farhan Akhtar, becomes all the more manly with his beard. Just remember his beardo look in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. Nevertheless, he still has our hearts with his clean look.
