Khanomenclature

While I am still in the 'naming' hangover, I might as well make a list of Aamir Khan names. He has managed to play characters with such distinct names. I mean, yes he began as Raj in QSQT. But then he moved away.

The first name and surname could be so simple ones. But taken together and when played by Aamir, they become so distinct, they just stick to my mind. Like Raghu Jaitley of Dil Hain ki Manta Nahin. That's one movie I know the dialogs and with their background music.

All this came back to me after watching 3 Idiots.
Ranchhoddas Shymaldas Chachad
Rancho
Baba Ranchordas
and the name revealed in the very end.
I am ready to bet, no other Hindi film hero, ever had such sounding name or from that region.
