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
Hey correct me if I'm wrong but I do remember in the initial round of audition in DID, they referred to him as Mohammed Ghouse Khan? Not that it's a big deal but I was just curious. 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.
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 name
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?
