A first-generation American and the child of immigrants, Tall grew up in Harlem. His unusual and all too appropriate name represents a merger of African cultures. “My mother was born and raised in Bamako, the capital of Mali in West Africa, and my father was born and raised in Thiès, Senegal,” he says. “My first name, Hella, comes from my mother’s father, Mr. Hella Diallo, and my last name, Tall, comes from my dad’s surname. I guess I was born to be a model!” Correct as that seems, he would never have entered the industry without a little help from fate.

In three of those cases, academics are accused of shamelessly trying to further their own careers. But in Chapman’s case, Twitter users who came into contact with @piney_the say the account
There is no point denying the fact that most Indian men do not age well. We lose our hair, most of our teeth start falling off, and no matter how fit we were in our 20s and 30s, we get a rather sizeable paunch when we get old.
Having said that, not all Indian men go through such a transformation.
In fact, if these 9 male celebrities are anything to go by, we can safely say that if we take proper care of ourselves, and do all the right things, in a timely manner, we too can age like fine wine:
1. Chiranjeevi- 65
Yup, Chiranjeevi is 65-years-old. Now, we’re not saying that he looks 24, that would be an exaggeration, but does the man look a day older than 40? We don’t think so.
Just look at the photo of him, next to Ram Charan.
