While it’s common for Bollywood actors to have screen names, the latest newcomer to follow in her father’s footsteps is Govinda’s daughter Narmmadaa.
After Govind Ahuja became hugely popular as Govinda in films, his daughter is all set to be launched as Tina Ahuja in Bollywood. She will be seen debuting opposite Punjabi superstar Gippy Grewal in filmmaker Smeep Kang’s forthcoming Hindi film.
Interestingly, numerology is not responsible for the screen-name decision as opposed to the popular assumption. A close friend of the debutante actress confirmed the news before adding, “Tina happens to be Narmmadaa’s nickname. We (her close friends) address her as Tina for a couple of years now. So when it came to her acting debut, we thought her nickname sounded way cooler. Since she is young, Tina embodies her personality better, which is why the decision.”
The youngster had even put up her reel name as her user name on a photo-sharing site. It was soon changed to Narmmadaa, probably to keep things under wraps. Apparently, her real name will stay untouched on legal documents. Tina will strictly be her screen name and her family has been consulted about the same.
