Naveen Krishna, son of popular character artiste Srinivasamurthy, will be known here after S S Naveen! The actor recently changed his name hoping that it would ensure success in the film industry.
The name change comes after his latest movie, Bidalare Endoo Ninna, a horror thriller, bombed at the BO. Incidentally, the actor had vowed to bid goodbye to the film industry if the movie failed. But it looks like he has gone back on his word because showbiz is so tempting.
Naveen has been in Sandalwood for more than one decade, and tried every role, including that of a lead actor. Even his father desperately tried to ensure that his son found acceptance from the audiences. Unfortunately, Naveen could never achieve the scale. Finally, he succumbed to numerology in search of success. Though his full name was B S Naveen Krishna, the actor had restricted it to Naveen Krishna. In future, his name will be flashed as S S Naveen on the big screen.
He is not the first Kannada actor to change name under the influence of numerology. It is a well-known fact that most of the actors’ screen name is different from that of the original. Recently, Haripriya changed her name to Hariprriya and the actress has become busy in Telugu movies than Kannada movies since then.
