Not everyone is as lucky as Tabu, AKA Tabassum Fatima Hashmi, who loved her nickname so much that she adopted it as her official screen name. But not all of us get that fortunate to have such adorable pet names.
In fact, there are some Bollywood stars who hates their nicknames as much as we do, and they have been trying for a long time now, to stop people from calling them with those nicknames.
Here is a list of 5 such celebrities who couldn’t stand their nicknames and share a love-hate relationship with them.
There was a time when Abhishek Bachchan found a fancy name for our Baywatch actress, and that was Piggy Chops. And she started to go around with the same name for a while. Just like every other normal girl, Priyanka hated her pet name too. But thanks to the international media, she has finally established a suitable nickname for herself, PeeCee.
It apparently seems like even the most eligible bachelor of the B-Town hates his nickname as well. But, we cannot really call it hate, if he feels like only his close ones and friends deserve to call him as Sallu Bhai. He even interrupted an RJ once to have him called by his official name, Salman Khan. Is it too much to ask for, when the entire nation actually considers him their Bhai!
