Nationwide campaign of Gillette ‘Will You Shave’ that encouraged men across to shave has definitely got the perfect face palm moment with girls across the country going weak on their knees for Shikhar Dhawan.
ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 #IndvsSA
Shikhar Dhawan’s stunning 137 (146) helped India put on the score of 307 runs that the Proteas couldn’t chase.
India won by 130 runs.
When Dhawan scored his century, fans across the country went crazy talking about his style, attitude and of course his moustache.
If you talk about Dhawan’s personality, you simply can’t imagine him without his moustache.
Dhawan resembles the notion from our old Hindi films where moustache was considered as the ultimate style quotient for men.
They had even stereotyped thinking of “Mooche Mard Ki Nishani Hai”. Not that if you shave you would become less manly but a man with a moustache was considered to have a great personality.
This notion was beautifully explored in the old Hindi film, ‘Gol Maal’. This scene from the movie has the dialogue, “Moustache is the mirror of human soul and mind.” This dialogue was a huge hit.
The film stars Amol Palekar caught in between the dilemma of moustache.
The character of Bhawani Sankar played by Utpal Dutt believes that moustache defines the character of a man.
Over the years shaving brands along with their campaigns changed this concept but thanks to Dhawan, the style of donning a moustache is back.
Oh yes and we are totally drooling over the flamboyant way in which Shikhar Dhawan twirls his moochi (moustache).
He smashed 2 sixes and 16 fours at a strike rate of 93.83 in his spectacular innings of 137 runs.
He was dismissed in Parnell’s over caught by Hashim Amla.
Did you notice the number of times he twirled his moustache in yesterday’s match?
Well the moustache trend seems to have begun:
