Why did muslim actors adopted Hindu name?

This thing always wonders me.
In the past, especially black and white era.
Why did muslim actors adopted Hindu names?

Dilipkumar
Madhubala
Ajit
Meenakumari
Jayant (Amjadkhan's father)


Were they ashamed to be muslims or they feared backlash from their brethren?

And why do we have actors with muslim names now?

Secularism, was not as farce as it is now back then! There is a deeper meaning to my sentence, hope you could see it!

Yusuf Khan was given a break in film industry by Devika Rani (yes, the same one who married the russian painter, Svyatoslav Roerich).

It was Devika Rani who gave her a filmi Hindu name

Re: Why did muslim actors adopted Hindu name?

waise, i think it was because majority of the filmmakers were hindu? possibly? and they thought that muslim actors with muslim names may not get as much work / recognition?

Remember it was a turbulent time..... seeds of relegious hatred were already sown... and Hindu Mahasabha/Muslim league and their ilk were encashing this hatred like never before...

Majority of cine-audience was Hindu or quasi-hindu... so for greater acceptance muslim actors changed their names (normally the protagonists of the movies happened to be a hindu..so it might be a reason as well). And the film-industry mostly comprised of Parsis and Muslims (and Bengalis)....
since Parsis were relatively safe from being targetted...they stuck to their original names.

I've heard that Dilip Kumar was offered several names since Yusuf didn't sound that good... one or two of them were muslim names but he chose Dilip.

you can see most of them didnt carry a surname either...most probably to gain acceptance across the castes.

wah kya gazab baat hai, firebrand woman, apni lawgirl!

rest of folks, before you say that gaali galoch sirf males ko shobha deti hain, I would say stuff that funda in your gand females should not be left in lurch when males go using the choicest of expletives... moreover the ones that lawgirl choose here are friendly type, like they say "friendly firing"

Yeah,
When a desi girl cuss its obscene, And white/black chic cuss....its not obscene?

Why can't we desis digest that what a man can do a woman can not do ?(except scratching balls, befor smelly replies this )

I am not saying I favor desi girls can go ahead and start cussing left and right like guys, but ...C'mon...whats so obscene when a woman cuss. Its is equally obscene wether a man swears or a woman swears.
