If that's the case, there should be a problem. I didn't know it was just a nickname Shocked What's more surprising, Akshay Kumar's name used to be Rajiv Bhatia???? ShockedShocked That doesn't sound like a name a movie star would carry. Perfect example of the superficial nature of Bollywood. But i guess i learn something everyday LOL 

Yeah well that's what someone told me LOL I didn't know if Salman was his real name or not because I didn't even watch DID from the beginning to know about all that. But the person who told me is a reliable source so I guess his name is not Salman at all Tongue

LOL, you didn't know Akshay Kumar's real name Shocked His wife mentioned it in some award. His full name is Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia LOL Yup, that doesn't seem like a movie star's name so that's why he changed it.



Holy cow, I didn't LOL I knew his last name was Khanna not Kumar but I thought that was it. WOW...Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia to Akshay KumarROFL

The main point is the conflict it might create, realistically, in public perception. I'm sure Salman Khan was being nice when he said there's room for 2 but it doesn't reflect public reaction. Let's face it, it is the public who has a hand in determining the sucess of actors. But if Salman is not aiming to be an actor like Rachna mentioned, there's nothing to worry.
but i dont see the problem to be honest ... you say public will not like tht ... thts the first time im hearin tht ... why would they not like it?
many ppl think he copied salman khans name and thts why they might not like it but as i said thts ppls ignorance... thts not true .. khan is his surname and salman his nickname
 
more than half of the actors change their celeb name but salman hasnt done tht .. hes just being known with his nickname
 
and yeh the first audition with tanvi they did call him Ghouse ... but then as he go selected  he was known as salman
 
also yes he does wanna enter the industry God willing ... and it would be ridiculous to see talks about him just cuz of his nameWacko

I didn't say the public will blatanly crucify him for his name, read my post again. When hopeful actor debuts in a movie, there must be something to make them stand out, to differentiate themselves from the rest. If not, the public won't bash you, they just wont give a hoot and forget you exist (I'm not talking about his ardent fans but looking at the bigger picture). A name plays a huge part in how people perceives you and ultimately accepts you into their hearts. It's part of your image and it's natural tendency to automatically compare both Salmans at first because most wont get to know either Salman personally. Since the older Salman has been around, he hold more weight in people's  mind. His name could be anything for all I cared, but ignorance as you like to call it won't just vanish because of Salman Khan's relevance. It seems like a burden to share a name with someone like that. I dunno I had to option to steer away from that, I would. I'll give you an example. Actress Vivica A. Fox added an "A" in her name because at that time there was a semi-famous Viviva Fox who was around before her. Now think about the implication of a heavy-weight famous actor Salman Khan?

nor did i say public will crucify him ... i said itll bring talks .. are those two things synonyms?
and if u see my first post i did say tht i think ppl will talk about his name ... [compare him to the other salman khan] but are you tryin to say tht ppl will be like ... the other salman khan is way better .. is this wht ur tryin to say??? if thts the case then i ur right .. there shouldnt be two celebs with the same name
