MANOJ BAJPAI and DINO MOREA
Nicknames in Bollywood are common parlance. If Sanjay Dutt is called Baba, Hrithik Roshan is called Duggu. Kareena Kapoor is Bebo while Govinda is Chi Chi. Star nicknames have always fascinated the Bollywood fans as much as their films do. The best part of this ritual being that this nickname finally becomes the main identity of the star. Remember Big B here.
Following the same ritual, this time Manoj Bajpai has done the honors by adding another nickname to the list. The actor has nicknamed Dino Morea as Italy Ki Titly (Italian butterfly)
Throwing more light on nicknaming Dino Morea, an excited Manoj Bajpai adds, ''Well, the name defines Dino quite well. Dino shares an Italian connection since his dad is from that country. Moreover, the fact that Dino is so fit and agile on the sets makes him act like a butterfly. I feel my nickname is quite definitive of his persona,'' he adds with a smile.
Let's hope Dino's nickname turns out to be a lucky mascot for his next release.
