In a chat show, Bollywood actress Kiara Advani revealed that Salman Khan asked her to change her first time before entering the film fraternity. Opening about it on "Feet Up with the Stars Season 2", the 'Kalank' actress said that "Aaliya is my first name. Salman Khan suggested me to change it because of Alia Bhatt because there can't be two actresses with the same name in Bollywood.
"He suggested the change, but 'Kiara' is the name that I chose. Now even my parents have started to call me Kiara," she added. The actress also spoke about how she bagged "Lust Stories" without auditioning for the role.
Recalling her experience, Kiara said: "Karan Johar has an eye for it. He spots a performer and he knows how to get it done."When Kiara was filming for a scene with vibrator for "Lust Stories", Karan told her: "Don't make it a caricature, just be raw and do it. It's a funny scene but doesn't make it funny."Since starting her career in 2014 with the film "Fugly", Kiara has appeared in a film like "M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story", "Machine", "Lust Stories", "Kalank" and Telugu films like "Bharat Ane Nenu" and "Vinaya Vidheya Rama" among others.
On the film front, Kiara is a part of "Good News", "Kabir Singh", "Shershaah" and the "Kanchana" remake.
