What's there in a beard Om ji?

Recently there was news floating around how Om Puri had to forego growing a beard for his role in SINGH IS KINNG. The reason behind this? Apparently he is allergic to beards and gets rashes whenever he grows one.

However, if one looks just in the recent past, he did have a beard for his role as a Sardar in one of the films. Any guesses?

Well, this was a small film called DELHII HEIGHTS which was directed by debutant Anand Kumar. Since this Jimmy Sheirgill-Neha Dhupia starrer, which hit the screens last year, was Delhi based with Om Puri playing an old Sikh man, he was seen with a beard throughout the film's duration.

Prior to DELHII HEIGHTS, Om Puri has also been known for his Punjabi act in Priyadarshan's HERA PHERI and Gulzar's MAACHIS. Yet again, just like SINGH IS KINNG, he didn't have a beard in both the films.
