Afterward, with each passing movie, Kiara proved that she was more than just a typical B’Town beauty. Without a doubt, she deserves all the love she receives from the fans, but did you know that Salman Khan has a major role to play in Kiara’s career? Here’s all you need to know.
For Kiara, who made her Bollywood debut at the age of 22, Salman Khan has always been a great support. Not only did the advice work, but actor Dabangg had also suggested changing his name. For strangers, Kiara’s real name is Aliya.
Salman Khan believed that Aaliya’s name would create a clash with Alia Bhatt and that there would be no oneness. Speaking of the same thing, Kiara Advani said: “Aliya is my first name. Salman suggested that I change it because of Alia Bhatt because there cannot be two actresses with the same name in Bollywood.
Kiara told it all during her appearance on Anaita Shroff Adajania’s talk show.
“Salman suggested the change, but Kiara is my name. Now even my parents have started calling me Kiara, ”added the Kabir Singh actress.
Well, it seems, Salman Khan’s advice has turned out to be beneficial for Kiara!
On the work side, Kiara Advani was last seen in Indoo Ki Jawani. Prior to Indoo Ki Jawani, Kiara appeared in Akshay Kumar, directed by Laxmii and Good Newzz. She rose to fame with her Netflix series, Guilty.
