When he was asked what the long beard is for, this is what the actor had to say, “Saif’s beard looks bigger than my beard, though. I am still waiting for it to get to that length, his looks really good. This is for Arjun Reddy. I’m doing the remake of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy.”
Talking about his beard he further said, “going to get a lot bigger than this.” When asked if he might beat Saif at growing his beard, Shahid said on a funny note, “I might. I might just get there. Watch out, Saif!”
All on a light note Shahid challenged Saif on growing beard and asked him to watch out.
Saif too is growing a beard for his upcoming film ‘Hunter’ where he’ll be playing a Naga Sadhu.
Saif had earlier revealed about his beard and his wife Kareena Kapoor Khan and son Taimur’s reaction on it, “She says she likes it and he pulls it very hard but neither of them has kissed me very much. If I ask Taimur to kiss my hand, he kisses it. If I ask him to kiss my face, he just tilts his head on my cheek. Pretty much the same with the missus.”
For Shahid his daughter Misha is pretty cool with his beard, “She has been a part of the growing process. If I was away for a while and I came back, she would have been a bit thrown off. But she has seen it grow every day and she has asked me on many occasions after touching it, ‘Papa, yeh kya hai?’ And I have to explain to her that it’s a beard. Those conversations have happened, yeah,” he laughed.
