There are several celebrities in the Television industry who changed their name in order to match it with their powerful image. Here’s the list of some of those actors who did so and then ruled the industry like a boss:

Karanvir Bohra

Karanvir Bohra, the lead actor of the popular television show, Naagin 2 changed his name before making an entry into the Television industry.

As per reports by an esteemed daily, it is said that his grandfather named him Manoj but the actor later changed it to Karanvir.

Tia Bajpai

The beautiful actress Tia Bajpai was born as Twinkle Bajpai but only changed her name after director Vikram Bhatt asked her to do so. According to a report by a national daily, it is said that Vikram felt Twinkle was not an appropriate name for her personality and the Bollywood industry already had a Twinkle (Twinkle Khanna).

Anita Hassanandani Reddy

The ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ actress, Anita Hassanandani was born as Natassha Hassanandani. It is said that the actress changed her name from Natassha to Anita as she felt Anita was a common name and it would help her gain fame easily.

Ridheema Tiwari

The ‘Sasural Genda Phool’ actress changed the spelling of her name from Ridhima Tiwari to Ridheema Tiwari. As per reports, it is said that the actress did so to save herself from an identity crisis.
