After Salman Khan's moustache in DABANGG, Ranbir Kapoor's hairy chest to become a fad in BESHARAM

By Rachana Sheth, Glamsham Editorial

Anil Kapoor, who topped the list of hairy hunks in 80s, was always a butt of a joke for his fuzzy chested hair. But it seems, the hirsute look which was a laughing stock then is set to become a fad now if you believe director Abhinav Kashyap.

Abhinav, who brought back the trend of hero sporting a moustache through his super successful debut film DABANGG, is aiming to recommence the bushy chested look and bring it in vogue through his upcoming film BESHARAM.

While Salman Khan sported a pencil thin moustache with elegance in DABANGG series, Ranbir Kapoor will be mostly seen flaunting his unbuttoned shirt showing off his well unshaven chest, a masculine look which was in trend for almost three decades i.e. 70s, 80s and 90s.

Abhinav reasons why he chose to bring the trend of hairy trunk back, "I wanted Ranbir to slightly look out of the place in BESHARAM, something which is not in sync with today's time. When Salman wore a moustache nobody liked it then, but today it has become a trend, so I can say Salman was ahead of time. When I was making DABANGG many came to me advising that yeh kya purrane zaamne ka hero hai mooch laga raha hai....But I would always say everything is cyclical including fashion and trends. And today I take pride in saying that I started the cycle again. Everything should be tried out and one should be experimental. You never know what clicks."

He further blames Khans for cessation of shaggy torso look. Abhinav says, "From the time Khans started ruling the roost every other actor began to shave their chest. I have several of such female friends who come to me and ask why these heroes get their hairs removed? On the contrary the hairy chest looks quite masculine and sexy. They say although clean shaven looks good on-screen but that is extremely uncomfortable to watch. So I thought let's bring back the era of heroes having hairy chest."

Also starring newbie Pallavi Sharda along with Rishi and Neetu Kapoor, BESHARAM is set to hit the screens on October 2nd, 2013!
