Break The Beard trend is back, PKL players take the challenge!

Break The Beard

During IPL in April this year, Ravindra Jadeja started the Break The Beard challenge, where he shaved off his beard because he wanted to change the look in the dressing room. The challenge is to shave your beard and upload short videos on social media, using the hashtag #BreakTheBeard.

The #BreakTheBeard trend which surfaced on Twitter during this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL), seems to be back again. Cricketer Ravindra Jadeja challenged Anup Kumar, captain of U-Mumba in the on-going Pro-Kabaddi League (PKL) season, the latter accepted it and posted a video of his new look on Twitter. Rakesh Narwal from PKL’s Fortune Giant team also accepted the challenge and trimmed his beard. Looking at this, Jadeja sent a friendly retort on Twitter, by sharing his picture, where he has done away with the beard altogether. He mentioned that even though the trend was started by cricketers, but Anup and Rakesh has taken the ‘panga’ to an all new level.

The challenge is to shave your beard and upload short videos on social media, using the hashtag #BreakTheBeard. The move is intended to break the fashion stereotype among men.
