BH CORRESPONDENT, New Delhi: When former Indian cricketer Kapil Dev went for makeover during the lockdown, it did come as a shock for many. Well, the Haryana Hurricane shaved head, however, retained his beard, giving it a salt and pepper look. In photos shared by his former teammate and friend Chetan Sharma, Kapil was posing in his new look while wearing a black suit.
However, there’s one Bollywood actor, who seems to be liking India’s World Cup winning captain Kapil’s new look a bit too much. And we also know the reason why. Well, it’s Anupam Kher. In his trademark humour, he reacted to the former Indian all-rounder’s look on Twitter and posted, “So my dear friend @therealkapildev has also gone bald, fashionably also referred as “shaved”. I have always said that there are two kinds of men in this world – Baldies and Future Baldies. Welcome to the club Sir!! गंजो की महफ़िल में आपका “बालों रहित” स्वागत है।”
