HAIR'S THE REEL DEAL
David Chute is mistaken in his review of Eklavya, "Bloody Royals" [February 21–27], when he claims Amitabh Bachchan's beard is real. Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra did want him to grow his beard, but fortunately for us ardent fans, Amitabh was too busy with other projects. That beard is the result of many trials to get the right look. Amitabh complained that false beards are a pain, because they interfere with facial expressions. He has threatened that if Chopra makes him wear a false beard in his next movie, the rest of the cast will have to wear one.

CORRECTIONS
In Nat Hentoff's column last week, the phrase "Hope is a thing with feathers" was incorrectly attributed to William Saroyan. Emily Dickinson actually penned it.

The film Eklavya was incorrectly spelled in David Chute's review "Bloody Royals," February 21–27.
