Bollywood’s emerging and stunning actress Kiara Advani has recently revealed in an interview that her real name is “Alia”.
The actress is touching the heights of the glory after the success of her film “Kabir Singh” in which she is cast opposite the very talented Shahid Kapoor.
She also revealed that she had actually taken the inspiration of her name from Priyanka Chopra’s character in the film ‘Anjana Anjani’.
She revealed that before stepping into the world of cinema, her name was Alia. She decided to change her name as she doesn’t want it to get mix with Alia Bhatt who is a very talented and established actress. The stunning actress has made her debut in 2014.
During an interview with the Filmfare, the starlet opened up about her screen name: “My name has been Kiara since my debut in 2014. I didn’t want to confuse the audience with Alia Bhatt, an established superstar. It just felt like the right thing to do to have your own identity. Why have two Alias?”
The actor mentioned further: “The name Kiara was inspired by Priyanka Chopra’s movie ‘Anjana Anjani’, where she introduces herself as, ‘Hi, I’m Kiara.’ I thought, ‘What a beautiful name. If I have a daughter, I’ll call her Kiara’. But before that, I needed a name for myself. So, I took it on.”
On the work front, the slaying beauty will be next seen in ‘Good News’ which also features Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor.
