A List Of Bollywood Celebrities Who Dropped Their Surnames

Published

on

In recent times when star-kids have taken over the Bollywood industry by storm, many are still ruling with all their power and performance. And most of all are known by their full names.

While some have opted for an extra letter in their names, because of numerology, some thought of adapting to an entirely new surname, because they could. Amidst these famous ones, there’s a whole bunch of actors who have completely dropped the idea of using a surname at all.

That’s right!

We’re talking about the actors who’re plainly famous on just their first name basis and have been killing it in the industry.

Here’s a list of these Bollywood stars who chose the road of fame with just their name.

Kajol

Kajol

Mukherjee before marriage and Devgn after tying the knot with Ajay Devgn, Kajol never used any of her surnames throughout her career in Bollywood.

Ranveer Singh

Ranveer Singh

It’s all because of the recent social media shenanigans that the uninitiated too got to know that Ranveer Singh’s full name also has a ‘Bhavnani’ attached to it. But the actor has only been using ‘Singh’ as his last name.

Tabu

Tabu

There are still many who don’t even know that Tabu’s full name is Tabassum. And the actress’s surname is the same as Emraan Hashmi. But she refuses to use it and has garnered fame with her short name, Tabu instead of Tabassum Hashmi.

Shaan

Shaan

After getting into the glamour world, the famous singer didn’t only drop his surname Mukherjee but also his first name, Shantanu. He’s only known as Shaan.

Rekha

Rekha

The Silsila fame actress and the ever so ravishing Rekha isn’t known much by her real name Bhanurekha Ganesan. She chose to pick Rekha and stuck to that for the rest of her acting career.

Govinda

Govinda

Ideally known as Govind Arun Ahuja, the dancing inspiration to many has only gained fame by his first name.

Sridevi

Sridevi

The beautiful actress Sridevi was a South Indian actress even before she got into Bollywood. The lady who had a huge fan following only used her first name and so did her superstar parents Ayyapan and Rajeswari.

Dharmendra

Dharmendra

The Deol family is really famous with most of them in the acting industry. But Dharmendra not only dropped his surname Deol but also changed his name from Dharam to Dharmendra before he got famous.

Helen

Helen

One of the best actresses from the old days and Salman Khan’s step mother, Helen chose to stick to just her name for the acting career. But initially, her full name was Helen Jairag Richardson since she was of Anglo-Burmese origin.

Jeetendra

Jeetendra

One of the famous Kapoor actors from earlier times in the glamour world is Jeetendra. The actor’s family very much uses the surname Kapoor but the actor himself chose to touch fame with just his name.

I’m sure you didn’t know many of these because we’re all so used to just their names.
