The legendary Shakespeare had once said 'What's in a name'. Well, if your name is Barbie Handa, then, there's so much in the name. For starters, Barbie Handa is Priyanka Chopra's first cousin, who is now all set to make her silver screen debut in Anubhav Sinha's Zid.
Barbie, in order to be walking with the times, has now rechristened herself as Manaara, courtesy, Anubhav Sinha. Speaking about the name change, Sinha reasoned that Barbie was too childish a name for a grown-up girl. He added that Manaara also happens to be her nickname. Seconding his thoughts was Barbie herself… we mean… Manaara herself, who said that she liked the very name Manaara, which means a Greek word for 'something that shines'.
Readers may recall that Zid was also in the news recently because of the film's 'director' Vivek Agnihotri disowning the film claiming that Zid was not directed by him.
