For a long time, society has experimented with various barometers to assess a man’s worth.

Men are valued for a variety of reasons: their career, their income, and, in many cases, their lack of melanin makes them more appealing. However, a man’s physical characteristics appear to be the easiest to target much too often.

While women have come to appreciate people of different shapes and sizes, men have not always done so. A physically dominant guy is referred to as an ‘alpha,’ whereas a shorter lad is referred to as a ‘beta.’ Traditionally, the taller and more muscular guy has been thought to be superior to the others.

While the concept of the alpha male is absurd – an ill-informed piece of study that became a marketing gimmick – the impact of such a standard has been all too real. However, the year is 2022. And, happily, more and more people are becoming aware of the hoax, thanks in part to several celebrities.

While most of them aren’t as open about their heights as Tom Holland, their celebrity has helped to demonstrate that things are changing and that there’s never been a better moment to be a short guy:

The Spiderman: Far From Home star, who stands a respectable 5’8″ tall, has been making the festival rounds with his towering co-star and girlfriend, Zendaya.

Both Tom and Zendaya have spoken out against the absurd expectations placed on men’s heights, in which the male is always supposed to be taller than his girlfriend. That’s fantastic!

Allu Arjun has always been a superstar, but Pushpa: The Rise has broadened his reach to include the entire Indian subcontinent.

He carried the entire film on his shoulders, and you couldn’t care less about the elegant star’s claimed height of 5’6″.

Sushmita Sen has shared a nugget from the sets of Biwi No. 1 in a TV interview.

According to reports, Salman Khan questioned Sushmita about why she wasn’t wearing heels for the scene, to which the 5’9″ actress said that Director David Dhawan wanted her to wear flats so she wouldn’t tower over the 5’6″ Salman Khan.

Sallu Bhai, on the other hand, urged her to wear the heels because he wasn’t afraid of a lady towering over him.

To be honest, we’re a little startled by the Sultan star’s viewpoint.

5’7″ – Shah Rukh Khan, the man who has won the hearts of millions around the world, is unquestionably the poster child for guys who are at ease in their own skin.

He may be 5’7″, but the radiance of his celebrity dwarfs anyone who is in the same room with him.

Shahid Kapoor is a reasonably charismatic actor, despite occasionally playing troublesome characters like Kabir Singh.

Although the national heartbreaker stands at 5’7″, his followers don’t seem to mind.

One of Saifu’s biggest assets is his versatility, and as an actor, he has a wide range. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that his 5’7″ frame is easy to frame and shoot.

In his lengthy and illustrious Bollywood career, India’s ‘Mr Perfectionist’ has delivered hit after hit.

Whether he’s playing Sahir, the villain in Dhoom 3, or Siddharth Marathe, the scrappy protagonist in Ghulam, Aamir Khan has always commanded the attention of the audience, despite his 5’5″ stature.

Ram Charan’s Height

Ram Charan will play Alluri Sitarama Raju, a freedom fighter, in Rajmouli’s epic RRR. The film contains unnecessary action moments, but the 5’8″ star never looks out of place in the midst of all the stress and drama.

As a result, it’s time to let go of all your self-doubts about your height. Being at ease in your own skin is the best approach to being an attractive and confident man.

Please keep in mind that all of these heights are estimates because different platforms record their numbers differently. Perhaps it has something to do with short men’s fear of being judged and treated differently by their audiences if they divulge their true measurements.
