The 'Dill Mill Gayye' actress Shilpa Anand has been away from the Television for a long time now, the last show she did being 'Mahisagar'.
For her fans, that eagerly wait to hear something interesting about the actress, here is something you may like reading. Shilpa, who was tired of being known by a common name, has changed her name to Ohanna Shivanand now.
tvtalks.in got in touch with Ohanna Shivanand, to find out the reason behind the change of her name. "I always wanted to change my name since I was 6 years old, finally at the age of 26 I changed my name. The name change has nothing to do with astrology, I just wanted to change my name to something unique".
When asked if it is hard for friends and family members to get used to her new name, she continued, "Not really, it is very common to change your name, nothing new. My family love my new name".
People still recognize her as Shilpa, won't it affect her popularity? "In today's time changing name is not a big deal. So with a change of name things don't really alter much."
For Shilpa, change in name does not matter and she is sure it won't affect her popularity as it has been a practice among the celebs. Well, well, we hope the new initiative works well for her by fetching good projects in the time to come.
