It is a common trend in Bollywood that heroes appear in a clean-shaven look without any mustache. Anil Kapoor is the only Bollywood hero who has achieved stardom with a mustache. Right from Amitabh Bachchan to the latest sensation Ranveer Singh, no hero has a mustache.
But the situation is completely different in Tollywood. People treat heroes with a mustache as handsome guys. Except for Mahesh Babu, no hero has achieved stardom without a mustache. Recently, a trend of growing beard has started. Ram Charan scored a blockbuster with his thick beard look. Though Jr. NTR tried beard look in 'Nannaku Prematho' itself, it has become popular now. There is a talk that Mahesh Babu is going to appear in a beard look for his next film with Vamsi Padipally. He is experimenting with his look after a long time so the audience are also curious to watch his new beard look.
Megastar Chiranjeevi is also sporting beard look for the last six months. Though he removed beard once, he has grown it again. Venkatesh is going to appear in a beard look in the multistarrer directed by Anil Ravipudi. Sharwanand appeared in light beard look in the past but he is going to appear in a thick beard look in his new film. Young hero Sundeep Kishan who is trying for a hit for a long time is going to appear in a beard look. Heroes like Nara Rohit, Ravi Teja usually appear in beard look and they are trying to change the style of the beard in their upcoming films.
Tollywood heroes are believing that there is heroism in beard and they are growing the original beard rather than covering up it with makeup.
