In his latest media interaction, he was asked about the film and the latest trend that leading heroes have started of keeping big beards. The comparison was of course with Saif Ali Khan who has transformed for his film where he plays a Naga Sadhu for ‘Hunter’. Shahid said that he wants to get there too. He later openly challenged Saif and asked him to ‘watch out’ as his beard might just get bigger!
