Krushna Abhishek reveals his name had to be changed because of actor Abhishek Bachchan

Krushna Abhishek has shared an intriguing story behind his name, which is actually pronounced as ‘Krishna’. The comedian uncovered his mom named him after Abhishek Bachchan since she was a fan of his father Amitabh Bachchan. Be that as it may, when Krushna was about to join movies, he change his name to avoid confusion.

Krushna was guest on The Maniesh Paul Podcast where he explained the reason behind his changed name.

Krushna told Maniesh during the chat, “My name is Abhishek Sharma. My mother was a big fan of Mr Amitabh Bachchan. When I was born, she named me after his son – Abhishek. I was named Abhishek because of Abhishek Bachchan. And then my name had to be removed and made Krushna, also because of Abhishek.”

Speaking about why his name had to be changed, “When I got into acting, I was told there’s already an actor by the name of Abhishek. That time, websites were becoming popular. So when Abhishek’s name was typed, Abhishek Bachchan’s photos were showing first. I was told so and then thought, of course they are the Bachchan family. They told me not to keep my name as Abhishek. So that’s how I became Krushna Abhishek.”
