That awkward moment when your mother calls out to you with the most embarrassing nickname, in front of friends. How you’d wish you were anywhere else but there! But wait, we aren’t the only ones to be bestowed with these absurd nicknames. Our beloved celebrities aren’t spared either. We all are aware of the Kapoor sisters being fondly known as Lolo and Bobo respectively. But did you know Ranbir is nicknamed as Raymond by his mother? Likewise there are many such celebrities you didn’t know had funny nicknames.
Here are 10 best ones we really couldn’t help but bring to your notice:
Priyanka Chopra – Mimi
Who could have thought the hot and sassy Priyanka is known as Mimi by her peeps. So cute…! The feisty actress is also known as Piggy Chops in the industry, all thanks to Abhishek Bachchan.
Bipasha Basu – Bonnie
Bipasha once stated that she has lost count of her nicknames. B, Bips, Basu, Baby Basu, she’s heard it all. However, at home the actress is fondly known as Bonnie. We kinda like that!
Shraddha Kapoor – Chirkuut
Imagine the pretty actress being called as Chirkuut. Hilarious! Nicknamed by her childhood friend and actor, Varun Dhawan, we would love to hear it on camera sometimes. 😛
Ranbir Kapoor – Raymond
Like we mentioned earlier, Ranbir is referred to as Raymond by her mother. Why? Because she think her son is a complete man. We agree Neetuji!
Ajay Devgn – Raju
The pumped and powerful Singham is fondly known as Raju by his loved ones. Though Mrs. Devgn prefers to call him J.
Aishwarya Rai – Gullu
Miss World, internationally acclaimed and one of the most beautiful women in the world is known as Gullu at home! HAHA, Super cute!
Konkana Sen Sharma – Koko
Known for her temperamental nature, we wonder if it would be safe to call Konkana, Koko! Though we think it’s the most adorable one on the list.
Karan Johar – Pappu
Mystery solved! We finally found the Pappu, who apparently can’t dance! Jokes apart, though we all know about his brilliant dancing skills, but we surely didn’t see that nickname coming.
Sushmita Sen – Titu
Titu, that is what Sushmita Sen is known by her family and friends. We don’t know about you, but we think it’s definitely got a nice ring to it.
Mailaika Arora Khan – Malla
Oh we totally love this one! Malla kind of goes with Malaika’s hot and super sexy personality. Don’t you think?
So, are you still feeling embarrassed about your nickname?
