It’s the war of the whiskers. Shah Rukh Khan’s moustache in Paheli is the most talked-about hair-lip in the history of mankind. Now there’s Aamir coming up with a mouche —whoosh in Mangal Pandey.

Several internet sites have an ongoing debate on the issue.

But what about the the man with the mouche. Says SRK, “I don’t see a national debate in the issue. But yes, a moustache is what my character in Paheli required. My director Amol Palekar thought it suited the character, and that’s it. As for whether my fans will like me with a moustache or not…I think they love me no matter what I do. In any case this isn’t the first occasion where I sport a moustache.”

Shah Rukh has point. Some years ago in stunt director Ram Shetty’s directorial venture Army (a gender-reversed version of Sholay) SRK pasted on a moustache to look well matched with his costar Sridevi.

On the other hand Anil Kapoor, one of the few mouche-wala successful heroes in Bollywood shaved off his trademark hair-lip to look younger than Sridevi in Lamhe.

Neither Army nor Lamhe worked at the boxoffice. Could the moustache have something to do with it?
