Bollywood is used to the name games of the gorgeous ladies who disclose their real names after getting their fair shares of fame.

The latest one is Sophie Chaudhary who has disclosed that her real name is Sophia.

She's named after the Italian diva Sophia Loren. All thanks to her father who adored Sophia Loren and hence her birth name is "Sophia". However she now goes by the name Sophie.

And just like her diva predecessor, Sophie was a star right since childhood. She was a performer from a young age: a part of the school choir and playing the lead role in school and college musicals.

Her talent was discovered by the acclaimed music director Biddu when she was 13 years old. She started her career by singing back up for Shweta Shetty and Alisha Chinai.

And then she made a splash in Bollywood with her spunky role in Pyar ke side Effects. The pretty lass is all set to wow everyone with her two new releases - an item song in Sanjay Gadhvi's Kidnap and a role opposite Neil Mukesh in Freeze.
