South heroes consider moustaches very prestigious, and unless it was necessary for any film, no actor generally shaves it.
Tamil actor Karthi, who enjoys decent stardom in the Telugu states, has the other days faced an embarrassing situation when his fake moustache fell off during a press meet.
To promote his upcoming film ‘Kashmora’, a pressmeet was organized the other day in Hyderabad. While Karthi was enthusiastically speaking about the movie, his artificial moustache started to trip off. The actor tried to cover it with his hand, but as it continued to trouble and embarrass him in front of media men, he stopped the press meet and had to go out to correct it.
The embarrassing scene has become a headache for the actor, who always sports moustache in films. Reportedly, Karthi had to shave off his original moustache for his new film being directed by veteran filmmaker Mani Ratnam.
