Shahid Kapoor has apparently got into a competition with former girlfriend Kareena Kapoor Khan's husband Saif Ali Khan.

Shahid has apparently set a challenge for himself to beat Saif in the beard game. Saif has grown his beard for his role in Hunter, and his "naga sadhu" look from the film has already gone viral on social media.

On the other side, Shahid has also got a long beard now for the remake of Arjun Reddy, but it is not yet as long as that of Saif. "Saif's beard looks bigger than my beard, though I am still waiting for it to get to that length. It looks really good. This is for Arjun Reddy, a remake of the south film called Arjun Reddy, which I am doing," Shahid was quoted as saying by SpotboyE.

"I might just get there, watch out Saif," the actor said when asked if he aims at beating Saif's beard. Well, of course, all these were said on a funny note, but what makes it more interesting is he spoke about his ex-girlfriend Kareena's hubby.

Although Shahid and Bebo had avoided each other for a long time post their breakup, things eventually turned normal as they worked together in Udta Punjab. Later Shahid and Saif also worked together in Rangoon.

Meanwhile, Shahid is in news for a pleasant reason. The actor became a father to a boy on September 5. Shahid's wife Mira Rajput recently gave birth to their second child. They have a 2-year-old daughter Misha.
