34 Bollywood Celebrities You Didn't Know Were Using A Stage Name

User Image Web Editor Last updated on: 11/4/2015

Ever thought whether Amitabh Bachchan would have had the same persona if he wasn't called "Amitabh Bachchan"? Or how would you like it if you got to know that Preity Zinta's real name was something else? While they say "what's in a name", we say the name is the window to a celebrity's fame! But there are several actors in Bollywood who haven't shied away from putting their names at stake, quite literally! So while some changed their real names to suit modern times, others tried it for numerological reasons.

The general belief holds that a person has much attachment to his or her name. But when it is about Bollywood calling, this list of actors went against the notion and dropped their original names to fit well into the showbiz.
