A great saint from Indian cine industry, Utpal Dutt, once mentioned that “Jiske paas mooch nahin … uske paas mann hi nahin hai” (One who doesn’t have a moustache, doesn’t have a mind as well.) Adhering to this old adage given by Dutt, all the actors of Indian film industry have ardently tried to experiment with moustache. This facial trend is set in Bollywood like cream on cake. The moochies make the Indian men look hot, we agree. It gives them the rustic, rogue essence and a macho touch. It is believed that mooches stand for prestige, virility and masculinity. But not all men can carry off these moochies so well.
So here’s listing the top 10 Bollywood men who sported the mooch with panache
10. Jackie Shroff
Jackie’s mooch had become a trend in yesteryears which gave his personality a rogue feel.
9. Anil Kapoor
Despite the clean shaven trend of then and now, Anil Kapoor’s look has never changed.
8. Arbaaz Khan
Although we are not a great fan of Arbaaz Khan, he did sport a droopy moustache and could carry it off very well.
We know that the film didn’t do well with the audience but the moochie look struck a chord.
6. Nagarjuna Akkineni
This One Man Army was the heartthrob of many during his times. We fawned over him in his Criminal days, didn’t we?
5. Vivek Oberoi
His Rakta Charitra look became more fierce and poised because of the mooch that he sported. What more? He is been doing that again.
Aditya Roy Kapur did a phenomenal job as Tariq and the mooch added and edge to the character. A soft hearted ruffian.
3. Ajay Devgn
This action hero has been defining machoism and rage but supporting the droopy moochie.
2. Aamir Khan
Aamir was the first one to sport a walrus moustache in Mangal Pande: The Rising. This experimentation with his looks lent lessons to the new comers and looks like these newbies are doing quite well. His Talaash look was also a rage amongst the youth.
When we said newbie, we did mean to point out Ranveer Singh. His look as Ram Rajadi was simply breathtaking. The only reason why he tops the list.
