Ayushmann Khurrana to Karisma Kapoor – Bollywood stars who changed their name’s spelling

In our society, a lot of things are mainly dealt through emotions. Logic and facts only work within a framework, beyond that we as a society like to give in to certain things that have no logical reasoning.

For instance, the routine life superstition, obsession or beliefs bear no meaning but are close to the heart of those, who indulge in them. And, Bollywood isn’t untouched by this behaviour. Afterall, it’s a human tendency. There have been many Bollywood stars, who have changed their lifestyle or names to suit the astrological beliefs.

Today, we will talk about Bollywood celebs who changed their name’s spelling.

1. Karisma Kapoor: After a super hit career in the 90’s Karisma tried reviving her career in Bollywood after a long break. She even changed her name from Karishma to Karisma. However, things didn’t go as expected for her.

2. Ayushmann Khurrana: He added an extra ‘n’ in his name and extra ‘r’ in his surname in pursuit for good luck. This change seems to have worked for the dapper dude who is now a ruler of hearts.

3. Rani Mukherji: The Queen of Yash Raj khandaan went from Rani Mukherji to Mukerji somewhere midway in her career. Rani experienced times in her Bollywood career too which made her rush to the astrologer and change her name-spelling. Well one thing is sure, ‘Mukerji’ does sound British.

4. Tusshar Kapoor: Contrary to Ayushmann Khurrana, his career didn’t quite take-off even after changing his name-spelling. Tushar Kapoor went Tusshar Kapoor but hard luck!

5. Viveik Oberoi: Vivek’s career graph, at best, can be described as ‘rocky’. The actor had once tried fiddling with the spelling of his name and altered it to ‘Viveik’, in search of luck, we believe. However, he is back to being ‘Vivek’ now.

6. Riteish Deshmukh: In search of better luck, the villain of Ek Villain too tweaked his name a little and added an extra ‘i’ right after the ‘t’ in his name. The spell change was put to effect only during the editing of the movie. Can’t confirm or deny the effectiveness of astrology here, but the star is seeing some success in his career since the little tweaking.

7. Suneil Shetty: He had an average career throughout the nineties; managed to deliver a couple of hits too. Aspiring for more, he brought an extra ‘e’ to his name. But he made that change fairly late in his career, almost when it had run its course.

8. Ajay Devgn: After his filmy career ran its decades-long course, and a pretty prominent one, Ajay, in search of some more luck, decided on dropping a vowel from his surname. Whoever was the astrologer, the potency of his advice is evident in the success of the Golmaal series starring Ajay in the central role.
