The name of Bollywood actors are very familiar to all of us, we know the Hindi film celebrities more than we know the people around us. The news about all these celebs is easily available and accessible in the forms of books, movies and other resources.

But ethically we should all remember that these people too have their private life and they also need privacy. We should not try and invade their private space and respect their personal lives. They’ve too had their experiences and their lessons like each one of us.

One of the most fascinating things is how these people change their names once they enter the industry. There are many reasons: some do it to make sure their name is easily remembered while some do so for reasons such as numerology. Either way, it is quite fascinating to know the names and the story behind those names.

Have you ever thought that your favourite star might have a different name you don’t know of?  We are quite confident that you all will be very surprised when you get to know about their real names.
