June 28, 2008 (Sawf News) - Bollywood hunks love to go around with shadow stubble and Salman is no exception. The trouble is, as you grow old the shadow stubble looks increasingly like sunshine stubble, thanks to the pesky grey facial foliage that inexorably sprouts to replace the youthful black crop.
The problem gets exacerbated if your morning starts in the evening, as Salman's does.
At the music launch of Singh is Kinng at Enigma, JW Marriott on Thursday late evening, June 26, Salman was the unexpected chief guest. Unexpected because the Big B was also invited to the event though, for reasons best known to himself, Bachchan left the event before it even started. But that is a different story.
Salman's presence at the launch came as a surprise for the media which were under the impression that Amitabh Bachchan was the chief guest. Salman has nothing to do with the film that top lines Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif.
Akshay is currently in the US shooting for Sajid Nadiadwala's Kambakth Ishq, so we are guessing that the film's producer, Vipul Shah, roped in Salman to fill the void for no other reason than the fact that Salman is a media magnet who is romantically linked with his heroine, Katrina Kaif.
Anyway, we digress. Salman arrived at the 'early morning' event around 11 PM looking a little unkempt. His hair was disheveled and he had shadow stubble. While on the stage he exchanged a few words and smiles with Katrina.
It was either Katrina or the mirror that Salman kept looking into furtively as he strode out of Engima discotheque, that tipped Salman that all was not well with his appearance. We are thinking it was the sunshine stubble, but it could have been his misaligned wig!
Once out of Enigma, Salman headed straight to a rest room. As he went in his body guards blocked the entrance. Salman's man Friday appeared some time later carrying a coat and a pouch that he dutifully handed over to Salman in the rest room.
When Salman emerged a few minutes late, he was not only clean shaved but his hair was well in place
