Yash: KGF star Yash had not one but two names at the time of his birth. Legally, Naveen and his mother’s family named him Yashwant, and before starting his career in the film industry, he was advised by others in the industry to adopt a stage name. To stand out with the unique name for an actor in Karnataka, he shortened Yashwanth to Yash. Well, after that the rest is history. The actor is today best known for his iconic role of Rocky Bhai in the KGF franchise and enjoys immense fame across the globe.
