The stubble comes under attack from Neha Dhupia

If women can wax, why can’t men shave? In town with TV heart-throb Aamir Ali to promote Gillette Fusion Gamer at The Oberoi Grand on Monday, Neha Dhupia tells t2 why she likes her man’s cheeks as smooth as a baby’s bottom!


Men who are fashionably late.

Men who expect the woman to propose. We still like being asked out on dates and being proposed to.

Men who are not well-dressed for a date. Because we spend two hours before a mirror, even if we say we don’t.

Men who don’t like to hear our stories… we like to talk!

Why do you like your man clean-shaven and not with a stubble?

Since women spend so much time grooming themselves, it’s important that men look after themselves and opt for a shave! The hygiene aspect is also important.

Which Bollywood actors look best clean-shaven?

Describe your perfect man...

I think there are no perfect men around. I would like a guy who gives me security, love and respect.

Who is the most handsome Bengali?

I feel all of them are very handsome. Bengalis are extremely sweet, kind and intellectual. I think it is all because of the fish they eat!

What are you wearing a lot these days?

My smile!

What will you be sporting on Christmas and New Year?

I don’t know. I might stay home… in my pyjamas!
