Actress Sunaina of Neerparavai fame has changed her name to Anusha. She will be mentioned as ‘Anusha’ in the title card of her upcoming film Nambiar.
Ask her about the change, and she says, “It is completely my parents’ decision. I have been called Sunaina since childhood. Though a few pundits told them that my name should start with a certain letter, they were not particular about it at that time. They decided to name me Sunaina because they liked it. But now, after many years, they’ve consulted a pundit and learnt that certain letters would be good for me. That’s the reason for the change. I will be officially called Anusha henceforth.”
Getting used to a new name is not an easy task for anybody, but Anusha has been trying. “My mom and friends have already started calling me Anusha! But I don’t see much of a difference because they were anyway calling me by a nickname and not my original name,” says Anusha, who is currently busy finalizing a couple of projects in Tamil, “But, what’s in a name? My character in real life will remain the same.” But, does she like her new name, we persist. “Oh yes, I do.”
