  • Change your spelling. Indian film stars often change the spelling of their names or change names altogether. Sometimes stars will be identified by their honorific, nickname, or first name only. Stars often have several different nicknames. 

  • Be aware, sometimes films are re-shot in multiple languages with the same actors or new actors with the same playback singers. The titles may or may not change.
