Besides being blessed with a super-hypnotic voice and being super-talented, the most momentous thing for which singing sensations of our Pollywood are known for is the swag they have in their names. Punjabi Singers have like the coolest and amusing names of all the celebrities!
Obviously, no one would name their kids ‘Yo yo’ or ‘Ninja’ when they were born. There has been this trend of having a different catchy name on screen than one has in reality. Most of this is to make it sound exciting and to gain a good fan base.
So, here is a list of few Punjabi Singers with their real names who definitely rule our hearts but with different names:
1. Jassie Gill
This cute and handsome hunk is a heartthrob of the industry. His melodious voice and superhit songs rule a million hearts. For all those who don’t know it, his real name is Jasdeep Singh Gill.
2. Gippy Grewal
Famous with the name Gippy Grewal, the real name of this talented singer, actor and director is Rupinder Singh Grewal. He is the rockstar of the Industry. Currently, his new movie “Ardaas Karaan” is going to hit the theatres on July 19, 2019.
3. Harrdy Sandhu
Heart-stealer Harrdy’s parents too didn’t name him Harrdy when he was born! :p
His real name Hardevinder Singh Sandhu.
4. Babbal Rai
Voice behind a number of Superhit songs, Babbal Rai’s real name is Simranjit Singh Rai.
5. Diljit Dosanjh
Our very own Dosanjhan waala and ‘Cute Munda’ of the Industry too had a different name before he set benchmarks one after the other in both Pollywood and Bollywood. He used to spell his name as Daljeet Dosanjh and not Diljit. He made the change in his spelling because Rajinder Singh, the man who helped the artist make his debut in the industry suggested so.
6. Yo Yo Honey Singh
Yo Yo Honey Singh is not just a name but a brand in the Punjabi Music Industry. From an 80-year-old to a toddler, almost everybody knows him and his songs. But most of the people don’t know that his real name is Hirdesh Singh.
If you think that Yo Yo is a cool name, then hold on your thoughts. How do you think Ninja is for a name? Real name of this superhit voice is Amit Bhalla.
8. Elly Mangat
The superhit sensation Elly Mangat also changed his name before spreading like a fire in Punjabi Music Industry. His real name is Harkirat Singh Mangat.
9. Miss Pooja
Miss Pooja didn’t shorten her name but completely transformed it from Gurinder Kaur Kainth.
10. Sukh-E Muzical Doctorz
Sukh-E Muzical Doctorz’s real name is Sukhdeep Singh. The reason why Sukh-E calls himself Musical Doctorz is very interesting. Those who don’t know Sukh-E belong from a family of doctors, his sister is a doctor and the family expected much out of him as well. To quench their desires he thought of becoming a doctor too but a musical one!
Well, these swagger and cool names do add a sparkle in the personality of these singing sensations and make them unique. But their talent is what makes them the most cherished people in the industry.
