Raghavendra Rao used to wear white clothes and sport salt and pepper beard in the past. Afterwards T Krishna also adopted the beard style. Krishna has made films with a social message. In Tamil, T Rajendra also had a beard. Among the present generation directors, SS Rajamouli also has a thick beard because of which he looks like a monk. And now recently Trivikram Srinivas also sported beard. And now in this row we have Sukumar too having a beard. Srikant Addala always stops shaving whenever his film is in a shooting phase. And the last one in the list is Dasari Narayana Rao who is also having a beard look these days. It seems that in order to become a top director one must sport a beard.
