Anushka Singh, better known as Rekha Desai of SAB TV's Don't Worry Chachu, is having a tough time dealing with her name, due to it's stark similarity with leading Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.

Sharing this dilemma with Tellybuzz, Anushka said, "Actually, I have no clue as to how my cell number got leaked. I've been getting a lot of calls from people who believe that I am Anushka Sharma with comments like 'I am a big fan of yours', 'You've done a great job in Band Baaja Baarat' etc. When I explain to them that I am Anushka Singh and not Anushka Sharma they think that I'm lying. And it's not only fans but even a few people from the industry approached me and wanted to meet me, thinking that I was her. One fan literally wanted to marry me and was insisting that I was lying to get away from the situation."

To all those Anushka Sharma fans, hope this article clears your confusion.

    lol, so many people have the same first names in the industry. For example, in tellywood there are so many karan's! How come no one gets confused with these people?
