I still question my dad about why he decided to name me Rakesh!

A non-believer in numerology, the actor changed his name just for fun.

Our name is something that stays with us for the rest of our life, it is an integral part of our identity.

The story isn't the same for your very own Raqesh Vashisth who will soon be seen in Sony TV's Hongey Judaa Na Hum. The actor is not fond of his name

When we spoke to him about this strange topic of not liking his name he said, "I do not like my name, it was kept by my dad. I still question
him about his this name, but he still has no answer. He says he liked it so kept it.

The actor doesn't believe in numerology and changed his name just because he felt like doing so.

Jokingly he adds, " Every second person's name is Rakesh. Be it a rickshawala, servant or any one else. I thought while you're writing an SMS, Raqesh is easier to type, so I decided to change it.

    i changed my name too, darling, i dont like common peoplle, poor people. I fear close proximity to a commoner might taint my clothes made out of pure gold thread. P.S. I give to charity, of course I throw pennies at the little people from a distance only (good for my image and all that).
