Bollywood stars' signature names

It's quite common for film journos to use fancy words, alliterations and sundry other adjectives to describe film stars. Naturally, you need to make your copy more flowery, more readable and one way is to definitely describe the actor as close as possible to his or her real life persona or reel life screen image. For instance, Garam Dharam reveals Dharmendra's 'don't mess with me or my family' attitude! Similarly, Amitabh Bachchan's stature in the industry is more than conveyed through 'The Big B'. Here are a few favourite words journos use to describe their favourite stars

Aby's Baby aka Abhishek Bachchan. Named after Amitabh Bachchan's disastrous music album Aby Baby, probably the senior actor never imagined that one day his son would be described like that.

Ravishing Raveena: Works perfectly as alliteration for Raveena Tandon. That the actress is truly ravishing makes the coinage worth it.


Dream Girl: No prizes for guessing this one. Hema Malini is still the dream girl for thousands of her fans and the media alike. Though Hemaji has one complaint: "They no longer call me Dream Girl, they say dream girl of yesteryear."


Guddi: Jaya Bachchan who starred many moons ago in the film by the same name is still fondly called as Guddi .

Jumping Jack: Jeetendra for his (in) famous white dancing shoes and his really really cute dance steps that looked more like PT!


Badshah of Bollywood or King Khan: That's Shah Rukh Khan for you!

Chhote Nawab: Currently riding high on the success of Kal Ho Naa Ho and with his truly 'regal' looks, there can be no one better deserving of this title than Saif Ali Khan.

Queen of Hearts: Her brown eyes, her awesome screen presence and her Ms Nice Girl attitude makes Rani Mukherjee really a queen of hearts

Virar ka chokra or hero No 1: Govinda's copy can never be complete without these two descriptions


Deadly Dutt: The macho Sanjay Dutt with his smouldering eyes and awesome physique, deadly as ever.

Rangeeli: The heroine who got others to pout like her, the original sexy siren, with loads of oomph - Urmila Matondkar.

Come to think of it, these tags have indeed become the stars' signature names.
