Bollywood is known for famous families like the Kapoors and Bachchans, who are well known for most of their family members being in the acting business. Let us have a look at the Bollywood celebs who don’t use their surnames with their names.

Ranveer Singh

The Ram-: Leela actor, who is famous for his versatile acting and quirky fashion sense, is actually Ranveer Singh Bhavnani. The name Singh is his middle name, not his surname. He doesn’t use his full name anywhere except on official documents. We don’t think using only his name makes him anything less of a talented actor than he is.


The Silsila actress and the evergreen beauty of Bollywood, Rekha is actually Tamil and her full name is Bhanurekha Ganesan. Although, she has always hidden her full name from the public. She is known for her diverse roles in so many films and honestly, we can’t help but wonder if the actress has been frozen in time because she looks exactly like she did 20 years ago. The evergreen beauty is celebrated for her dance moves and her youthful appearance.


The Hera Pheri actress is known for her critically acclaimed films and tall and slender body. She was one of the first 90s actresses who seemed to be taller than her male counterparts. Tabu, however, shares her surname With the Serial Kisser of Bollywood. Her full name is Tabassum Hashmi. Her fans have adored her for her negative roles too.


The bubbly Kuch Kuch hota hai actress was the first actress who dared to chop her hair off for a film. Her diverse roles have won her many awards and praises. She has always been known by her first name. Her full name is Kajol Mukherjee. Her parents separated when she was a young girl and apparently, she didn’t want to use her father’s surname when she was stepping into Bollywood.


Well, the Sivaji the Boss actor and south superstar’s parents named him as Shivaji Rao Gaikwad. He was one of the first actors in the South who started the trend of surname-less names.
