Dharmendra Changes Name After Six Decades Of Career In Film Industry In Opening Credits Of Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya
Dharmendra, who recently received lots of love for his role in the Karan Johar romantic comedy Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, has returned to the big screen with another interesting role.
The actor plays a key role in the recently released sci-fi comedy Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya starring Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon as the lead couple. The film features him in the role of ‘Dada’ and it seems what left fans surprised was the fact that the actor chose to retain his surname for the first time in six decades in the credit scene.
Dharmendra Credited As Dharmendra Singh Deol
Fans and reviewers noticed that Dharmendra has been credited as Dharmendra Singh Deol during the film. For the unversed, the actor opted for Dharmendra as an onscreen name since he was born as Dharam Singh Deol. However, in his movie career which spans almost six decades, the actor is rarely expected to have used his real name, often opting for his screen name in the credit scenes. However, seeing the name has left many surprised, especially considering that fact that he chose it after so many years of working in the industry. The reason behind this is yet to be known.
Although Dharmendra refrained from using his surname Deol, his sons Sunny, Bobby as well as his daughter Esha have always used it, even during their onscreen appearances.
