Akbar, the greatest Mughal, and his son Salim have had their young love stories celebrated in Bollywood. It’s time for the next padshah to glory in and mope about his love. Enter…Akshay Kumar, as Shah Jahan. Akshay predictably took to the Taj Mahal, armed with a solitary rose, dressed in royal garb and prancing about with that boyish grin plastered all over his face. The one person pining for the pleasure of Akshay’s company on the sets of Atrangi Re is Arjuman Bano, aka Sara Ali Khan. Understandably, everyone is thrilled at the resumption of shooting after the long Covid intermission. But won’t Akshay sport a beard, in conformity with all the miniatures we have seen of the builder of the grandest mausoleum ever? Use your fertile imagination, pals, and visualise him in a theatrically classical beard, and how it might clash with that grin.
