Amidst several actors who feel 'macho' and handsome sporting a beard, here is an actor who got frustrated with life and work by growing stubble for nearly twenty days! Yes, we are talking of Saurabh Pandey, who plays the lead, Chandan in Jiya Jale. It is heard that the actor had a tough time during the shoot, and felt awkward to remain without a shave for nearly three weeks.
The young lad says, "I had to restrain myself from shaving off my beard and it was very difficult for me to go on like that, but in the end, I'd do anything for my work. When the shoot was over and I got to shave my stubble, I felt so good and even got compliments for my clean look". Saurabh, we sympathise with you for sure and can say only one thing – Welcome to the crazy world of Television!!
