Moochhon ko thoda round ghumaake seems to be the song every Bollywood hero is singing these days. And, it’s Movember. While the worldwide Movember movement, founded in 2004 by an Australian group, aims to promote awareness against testicular cancer with men sporting whiskers, many of our actors and cricketers back home are unknowingly supporting the cause by sporting handlebars for films or good luck on the playfield.
Here are five Indian celebrities who are making actor Utpal Dutt’s famous ‘mooch nahi toh kuch nahi’ dream in Gol Maal (1979) come true.
The Ram-Leela actor has fallen in love with his Rajasthani moustache, and has not held back his emotions about it. “Growing it was such a big thing, so I guess removing it will be another event,” he said in an interview. The look is a hit with young men.
The 42-year-old actor, so far seen as a clean-shaven charmer, was recently clicked sporting a classic handlebar on the sets of his upcoming film, Fugly. In the film, Jimmy plays a baddie from Haryana.

The Aashiqui 2 (2013) actor hit stardom without any facial hair, but he is sporting a horseshoe moustache these days, as was last seen when he went to meet Hollywood legend Robert De Niro.
The cricketer is sporting a handlebar moustache that’s bringing him loads of luck. “We are Rajputs and all the elder men in my family sport this moustache, so I thought it’s time I also try it,” he was quoted as saying.
Since his inclusion in the team, cricketer Shikhar Dhawan has been sporting a handlebar mooch that’s making waves. Dhawan, 27, doesn’t shy away from twirling his whiskers every once a while in style.
