Aamir Khan will be seen playing the role of a Sikh man in his upcoming film, Laal Singh Chaddha, an adaptation of the Hollywood film, Forrest Gump. The first look of the film was officially launched today on the internet and the netizen are going gaga over. Aamir has donned the turban and appeared as a Sikh man for an advertisement before. But this time, he brought even more authenticity to the role by actually growing out his beard. For playing the role of a Sikh man, Bollywood actors usually go for makeup. In the very recent past, Akshay Kumar donned the turban and a beard for his role in the Dharma Productions' war film, Kesari

Well, this gave fans of Aamir Khan an opportunity to go at loggerheads with the fans of Akshay Kumar. One Twitter user pointed out, "Growing real beard to do justice to the character." Interestingly, Akshay Kumar's film, Bachchan Pandey will clash with Laal Singh Chaddha on December 2020.

Which side of the debate are you on? Should actors always go the extra mile to give the realistic edge to their characters that they play? Or if the look can be achieved with makeup so why bother? Let us know in the comments below or tweet to us @latestly.
