India is a country where almost everyone has two names, one which is the official one, which gets written on the birth certificate and other important documents; and the other is the one which is lovingly bestowed upon by the family members. These range from funny to weird ones right from sonu and monu to munnu and chinky and what not.
Our B-Town celebs aren’t bereft of this trend either. Most of our beloved stars have a nickname and some of these are quite funny. Take a look at 11 such funny nicknames of popular Bollywood actresses.
1. Priyanka Chopra
Piggy Chopps, PeeCee, etc are some of the names endowed to this glamorous lady by her fans. There is another nickname she is endearingly called by too, but only by her family and that is Mimi. She was named so after Mimi Rogers.
2. Kareena Kapoor
We all know this one, but still can’t understand the weirdness of it. There was a song made around her name too. Remember ‘Bebo mein Bebo, Dil Mera Le lo’ from Kambakkht Ishq?
3. Sonam Kapoor
Due to her height, this fashionista was nicknamed Giraffe by her father.
4. Alia Bhatt
Before her debut in Student of The Year, Alia Bhatt was quite chubby. It was because of her weight that she got nicknames like Aloo, Aloo Kachaalu, Batata Vada, Aloo Baalu, Aloo Kalu and Alools.
5. Karisma Kapoor
The elder Kapoor sister has an equally weird nickname – Lolo. What does that even mean?
6. Shraddha Kapoor
Shraddha Kapoor was given the weird nickname Chirkoot by Varun Dhawan. We wonder what the reason was!
7. Bipasha Basu
Even this Bong beauty has the nickname Bonnie, which is quite weird. Her fans and friends from industry call her Bips though.
8. Celina Jaitly
This blue eyed beauty has a weird and cute nickname – Chinky. Doesn’t suit her sexy image, does it?
9. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Claimed by many to be the most beautiful woman in the world, Aishwarya Rai has a weird nickname too, Gullu, which doesn’t quite go with her glamorous image.
10. Sushmita Sen
Ex-miss Universe and still quite glamorous, Ms. Sen has the weird nickname Titu. Fans call her Sush too.
11. Madhuri Dixit
Her smile makes million hearts beat even today, but this beauty too has a weird nickname – Bubbly.
Well, one thing is sure. We don’t need to feel embarrassed by our weird nicknames anymore as we now know that our beloved stars too have weird nicknames!
