Here’s why Salman Khan asked Kiara Advani to change her name and it has a connection with Alia Bhatt!
Bollywood superstars are extremely superstitious and sometimes you wonder why? Now, actress Kiara Advani has revealed that she changed her name and it is all due to Salman Khan.
The lovely and gorgeous Kiara says Salman Khan asked her to change her first name because of Alia Bhatt. Kiara opened this in an episode of Voot’s “Feet Up with the Stars Season 2”.
“Aaliya is my first name. Salman Khan suggested me to change it because of Alia Bhatt because there can’t be two actresses with the same name in Bollywood,” Kiara said.
“He suggested the change, but ‘Kiara’ is the name that I chose. Now even my parents have started to call me Kiara,” she further added.
The actress also spoke about how she bagged “Lust Stories” without auditioning for the role. Recalling her experience, Kiara stated: “Karan Johar has an eye for it. He spots a performer and he knows how to get it done.”
Salman Khan has got a knack for things and plenty of his predictions have come true. Incidentally, Alia Bhatt gets along pretty well with Kiara.
Kiara Advani was recently seen in ‘First Class’ song with Varun Dhawan in ‘Kalank’. She has quite a few films in her kitty and will be next seen in ‘Kabir Singh’ with Shahid Kapoor. ‘Kabir Singh’ is scheduled to release on June 21, 2019.
