While at that time, it might of seem like a good idea (I mean people would would subconsciously link him to the "hero" Salman which  increase vote appeal) , it might backfire on him.
    
        My reasoning behind this is quite simple; there isn't room for two Salman Khans in Bollywood. When a newcomer debuts, there better be some uniqueness about them in order for them to stick out and become a staple on screen. The confusion that will lead to sharing a name with a currently popular actor is a big drawback. The comparisons would be inevitable and never-ending, even if dancer Salman doesn't resemble much like Bollywood Salman. That is a lot of pressure to put on a new-comer, not to mention the backlash he might receive. 

     I remember in Elementary school when we had two classmates sharing the same name, we'd always come up with ways to differientiate them (sometimes calling them by their last names) I was told it is highly an inconvience on those students as one of my friend has faced similar situation. She would cringe everytime some kid would come up with what he considers a clever way to differentiate her (long-haired Amy, short Amy, smart Amy, etc)It wouldn't have been a big deal if Bollywood Salman wasn't relevant today, but he is. I'm not completely sure if Bollywood is Salman's target but if it is, the road ahead might prove to be difficult. Stars like Salman Khan, Amir Khan, SRK, etc have been around for a long time. It took years to win the hearts of their enormous worldwide fanbase. Making it in Bollywood is a daunting task. Perseverance, talent, attitude and LUCK goes a long way but a name is like your label. It plays a significant part in how people react to you albeit how unfair it might seem.

    That being said, something like a name might seem trivial to many of us. I mean, a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet, right? But that's not the case in the entertainment industry.

    -Just a thought that sprung to life when hearing the host introducing Salyana pair-

For all of you who have been discussing "Salman's so called NAME issue" ever since DID 1 let me make 1 thing clear I am Salman's cousin sister and we have been together since our childhood his mom is my bua.. So let me once for all clear this dilemma of he changing his name to seek attention or being a desperate attempt to copy Salman Khan... Salman has always had 2 names one by which he has his academic records and one which we use to address him at home just like his elder brother who also has 2 names.. 

Salman's name as per his academics is Mohammed Ghouse Yusuf Khan and pet name or what we call him is Salman Khan and his brother's name is Abdul Gaffar Yusuf Khan and what we call him is Saud Khan... I don't understand why has there been so many discussions about this you don't know whats told to them when they are off camera so I please request you all not to misjudge Salman just coz he asked ppl to address him by his pet name its not a brand new name that he gave himself on DID its just the name what he is addressed as by his close related people.. I don't see any harm in that...

    With all due respect, I have not said one thing about his character nor have I judged him. I wasn't aware that there were already topics discussing this. Whatever I said was my simple observation and I try to be as objective as possible.

Hmmm,I get what you say, and I sorta agree with it.

At the same time, at least he'll be in the newsWink Anyways, there would naturally be a comparison between Salman Khan the dancer and Salman Khan the bollywood star, maybe Salman the dancer might wanna change his name again and contact Mr. Bejan Daruwalla(a famous numerologist)LOL

However, personally, I don't mind. Yes, it might be easier to distinguish if Salman the dancer changes his name...but like you said what's in a name? Most of the people would also look at other factors such as looks, expressions etc. Also, this is again a matter of personal choice, but I have seen Salman the dancer and his expressions on JDJ, and they are outstanding. He also has the looks to do well in the bolly industry and  I would rather watch his movie than the old, rigid Salman the actorLOL Just my opinion, no offense.

So yeah, the future is bright for Salman the dancer in the Bolly industry.


"What's in a name?" is from a famous scene in Shakespeares' Romeo and Juliet. I used it...because..it sounds poetic LOL

What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name;
And for that name, which is no part of thee,
Take all myself.
