Bollywood Believes Numerology: Celebs Who Changed Their Names For Better Luck.


Hey readers, welcome back to Desi Humor. Numerology has been a very popular ancient belief in India. Though with the effect of Westernization and the application of science, it is considerably losing its value among the Indian crowd. Where some people still do believe in it, some just mention it as a nuisance and a waste of time. 

As they say, ‘Miracles happen to those who believe in it’ same goes for numerology. For some people, art has been really fruitful. Even in our very own Bollywood industry, there are actors who heartily believe in it.
