Bollywood has created some of the most magical movies in cinema history. Creativity and acting skills have taken the level of Hindi films very high in the past few decades. Over the years, it has become a norm that the actors or actresses do not use their original names while working in a movie.
The writers assigned them names as per their characters. Although many times, the directors use common names so that the common people can associate those characters with themselves, there have been occasions where the scriptwriters permitted the on-screen artists to use their real names on the screen.
Here’s a look at those 16 instances when Bollywood celebrities used their original names for their characters in movies.

Amitabh Bachchan – Shamitabh
Johnny Lever – Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon
Raveena Tandon – Andaz Apna Apna
Ajay Devgn – Phool Aur Kaante
Karisma Kapoor – Andaz Apna Apna
Dharmendra Deol – Yamla Pagla Deewana
Rani Mukherjee – Badal and Hello Brother
Sooraj Pancholi – Hero
Preity Zinta – Soldier
Alia Bhatt – Shandaar
Akshay Kumar – Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi
Bobby Deol – Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya
Aditya Roy Kapoor – OK Jaanu
Lisa Haydon – Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Sunny Deol – Betaab
Abhishek Bachchan – Bol Bachchan
While a few of these movies did not perform well at the box office, most of them did decent business. Perhaps, using their original name in the movies could help the Bollywood stars in changing the fate of their movies. Nevertheless, the famous trio of Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, and Aamir Khan has never used this trick for publicity.
