Here’s why Shahid Kapoor is growing a beard


Shahid Kapoor is busy promoting his upcoming release ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ and is snapped sporting a thick beard at all events of late. The reason for this heavy facial hair look is his next project, which is ‘Arjun Reddy’ remake. ‘Arjun Reddy’ was a huge Telugu hit and was directed by Sandeep Vanga, who is to call the shots for the Hindi remake as well. Shahid was to begin shooting for the film by the end of this month, however, the director wanted Shahid to grow his beard even more and hence the filming has been pushed to September end.
