WEB DESK: William Shakespeare said: ” Whats in a name?”That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” It seems that this deep quote was taken way too seriously by many celebs of the tinsel town to the extent that they changed their real names for their own reasons.
Here is a list of 10 Bollywood actors who altered their original names completely or made small amendments to their long and othodox names to make them sound short and easy. Their current names are much better and suit the aura of their personalities.
His original name was too long, it was Mohammed Aamir Hussain Khan.
Big B’s original identity was Inquilab Srivastava.Sounds too old. Right? Amitabh is much better and suits his personality.
Dabang Khan’s real name was unbelievably Abdul Rashid Salim Salman Khan. Urgh!! Too long to even remember.
4. Katrina Kaif
This Indian beauty was originally called Katrina Turquotte.
His real name was Vishal Devgan.
Her real name was Karenjit Kaur Vohra. Thank god she changed it to Sunny.
Can you guess his original name? I am sure you can’t cause its too difficult to even pronounce Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia.
7.Saif Ali Khan
His name was Sajid Ali Khan. Saif is short and cute though.
This adorable actress was called Preetam Singh Zinta. Sounds too orthodox. Preity suits her pretty well.
Her name was Reema Lamba before entering into Bollywood.
