We have mentioned a few times on how the film industry relies a lot on sentiments and personal beliefs. While fixing the auspicious dates and Muhurthams is common, there are also many who go in for name changes and spelling changes owing to numerology. Usually, a lot of actresses do that.
But there are also few men who do that. In Tollywood, you have hero Nithiin who has added the extra letter ‘i’ to his name. He is joined by another filmmaker Sriwass. Apparently, the real name happens to be Sri Vasu but he changed it to Sriwass owing to numerological aspects, as per sources.
And it looks like this spelling change is working for him. First of all, the name looks catchy and attention is coming looking at the spelling. Secondly, a special identity is coming for him and so is success. As a result, Sriwass is stepping into the big directors list as well.
