Celebrities round the globe are usually in a practice of using hip screen names which go with their image.
Here’s a list of 9 Pakistani celebrities who stay in the spot light yet many fans are not even aware of their real names.
1. Reema KhanPakistani glamorous actress, Reema Khan’s real name is Samina Khan. Reema is only her on-stage name.
2. Veena Malik
‘Much publicized’ controversial figure, Veena Malik’s real name is Zahida Malik – is her on- screen pseudonym.
3. Sami Khan
Pakistani TV star, Sami Khan’s real name is too lengthy. It’s Mansoor Aslam Khan Niazi. Sounds too weird right? Sami Khan is way better.
4. Shaan Shahid
Did you know that the heart of Pakistani cinema,Shaan Shahid wasn’t always Shaan? Even I didn’t. His original name is Armaghan Shahid!
5. Aiza Khan
Our very cute and graceful, Aiza Khan is also not Aiza other than on screen.Her actual name is Kinza Khan.
6. Saba Qamar
Did you know who Sabahat Qamar Zaman is?She is the heart throb of lolly wood.Can you make a guess? I am sure you can’t .She is none other than your beloved Saba Qamar.
7. Nabeel Zafar
Though every Pakistani knows him as “Nabeel of Bulbulay”, his parents had named him Nadeem Zafar.
Once always in “the spot light” actress, Noor is actually Sonia Mughal. May be she wanted her name to sound “cute” and “short.”
Our favorite “Meera jee” was also not ” Meera” by birth. She has also changed her birth name Irtiza Rubab to Meera. I guess all her fame owes much to this name change.
