Did you know the Fugly actress Kiara Advani is not actually Kiara? Yes, her real name is Alia Advani and she was renamed by none other than the mentor of the youth i.e. Salman Khan.
Salman suggested she be renamed Kiara as there is already an Alia Bhatt, a popular name in the industry. “It was Fugly‘s producer Ashvini Yardi and Salman sir’s decision, but I liked the name! This is not about me or anyone, it is about the audience’s convenience. They can distinguish between two actors now. I will officially be known as Kiara and not Alia. I am happy with Salman sir’s suggestion,” she told a publication.
There has always been a common notion that Salman introduces actors that resemble another actor, like Zarine Khan as Katrina Kaif or Sneha Ullal as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. This time it is about not resembling another actor. Refreshing change, isn’t it? Also, is there any superstition attached to the letter K here? Just wondering!
