Bollywood Real Names

1. Katrina Kaif:

This beauty has changed her name from Katrina Turqoutte to as we know her “Katrina Kaif”. Imagine how difficult it would have been to pronounce that surname. 😛

2. Salman Khan:

Katrina’s ex-boyfriend Sallu bhai has also changed his name from Abdul Rashid Salim Salman Khan to Salman Khan. I wonder how difficult it was for him to choose his first name from that long name.

3. Amitabh Bachchan:

Mr. Amitabh has changed his name from Inquilab Srivastav. I like his previous name more as it suits his personality. Also he changed his surname from Srivastav to Bachchan as it was his father’s pen name.
