Aamir Khan’s fans are hugely impressed by his dedication to playing a Sardarji in Laal Singh Chaddha.Aamir has grown a real thick beard to look the part. Commending him for his commitment to the part is fine.And that’s what his fans did on social media.
But they also took the opportunity to remind Akshay Kumar of his fake beard as a Sardarji in Singh Is Kiing and Kesari. To this Akshay’s fans responded heatedly about the number of films that Akshay does simultaneously and why a real beard would be difficult.
A source close to Akshay says the whole controversy is deliberately created. “Akshay is not the first Bollywood hero to play a Sardarji with a false beard. This is a deliberate attempt to pull him down while showing the world how dedicated Aamir Khan is.”
Of late there have been a number of troll binges against Akshay most of then trying to establish how insincere he is to his work and country. Apparently Akshay has decided to shut down all detractors with Prithviraj Chauhan where he will be seen playing the brave Rajput warrior with utmost honesty.
Says a source, “Nothing fake about this role. Director Chandraprakash Diwedi has asked Akshay to grow a real beard this time.Akshay has therefore decided to finish all his pending assignments before plunging into Prithviraj Chauhan and its realistic requirements, beard and all.”
