Considering that Kiara Advani and Shahid Kapoor are in the midst of promoting their forthcoming film, Kabir Singh, the two of them are currently visiting TV shows as a part of it. Their next stop would be The Kapil Sharma Show that airs on Sony TV. Needless to say, we hear that the said episode will be filled with laughter and joy. During the show, host Kapil Shama asked the actors a lot about their body of work and their approach to each characters they play.
While the conversations went in flow, Kapil had something very interesting to ask Kiara. When talking about how some actors don’t use their real name and take to screen names, Kapil humorously asked Kiara Advani that on what basis did she change her name from Alia to Kiara? He further joked if Mahesh Bhatt wanted royalty because her name was the same as his well-known daughter and actress, Alia Bhatt? To this Kiara revealed that it was none other than Priyanka Chopra who inspired her to change the name from Alia to Kiara.
When asked to reveal, Kapil said, “When I entered the industry, Alia Bhatt was already and established superstar. So, I decided to change my name from Alia to Kiara Advani which was inspired by Priyanka Chopra’s character from the film, Anjaana Anjaani. Right from her accent to her style, everything inspired me to use that name. I would love to use the same name for my daughter in the future but I then thought that it was best to use the name, ‘Kiara’ for myself and establish the same in the industry.”
Further in the show, Kiara Advani reveals that she is the huge fan of Archana Puran Singh’s and loves her portrayal of Miss. Braganza from Bollywood’s iconic film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. She said that she grew up watching Kuch Kuch Hota Hai on a number of occasions and loves the movie. Here are a few photos from The Kapil Sharma Show:
