#Whats in the name!!!!

Shakespeare said that "whats in the name..", but this quote doesn't applies on our bollywood nomenclature.Mohd.Yusuf Khan becomes Dilip Kumar, Rajiv Bhatia becomes Akshay Kumar and Ravi Kapoor becomes Jitendra.

Name change culture normally prevails in Bollywood because of reasons based on purely astrological and numerological believes of the stars; Aditya Pancholi adds extra 's' in the name and becomes Aditya Panscholi in order to get most thrived success,Sunil Shetty adds extra 'e' and becomes Suneil Shetty for the same purpose.
It would be interesting to know the pre and post names of some of the popular stars of Bollywood for visitors having interest in Hindi Films and their actors/actresses.

Filmy Name Vs Real Name

1.Ashok Kumar----Kumudlal Kunjilal Ganguly
2.Kishore Kumar----Aabhas Kumar

3.Pradip Kumar-----SheetalDas Batvyal

4.Sunil Dutt---------Balraj Dutt
5.Sanjeev Kumar----Harihar Bhai Jariwala Jethawala


7.Shakti Kapoor-----Sunil Kapoor
8.Ranjit-------------Gopal Bedi

9.Gulzar (Lyricist)-------------Sardar Sampuran Singh

10.Rajesh Khanna--------------Jatin Khanna

Chandan said...

No intentions whatsoever,CW.I found nothing funny.That was just a wild one.
I respect ur liking for movies,specially from the day u mentioned the no. u watch in a month.NO hard feelings please....
Comics..i know is not ur only interest,no doubts.You were on verge,if iam not mistaken,of shifting to MW sometime back,so no doubts about it.
Sometimes i feel u are continuing here solely because of viewers and constant requests not to shift anywhere.I was just wondering why u haven't displayed anything so far?That's it.Again,its ur blog,dear CW.So no issues here also.
take care.

Comic World said...

#Subhro:Kishore kumar has sung in many languages such as Bengali,Hindi,Odiya,Bhojpuri etc...
#Dara:Its some sort of marketing strategy like TOI to put up lesser known heroes comics along with Phantom/Mandrake to get them read also;o)
