correct pronunciation

Celebrities have always attracted us with their personalities and power of talent in films. For ages, there have been many talented actors and actresses that have graced the screen with their performances. From Dilip Kumar to Amitabh Bacchan, and from Shahrukh Khan to Ranbir Kapoor, we all have been getting entertained with their power puff performances. With age, these stars lose their shine and give the new props of actors to rise and make a new fan following. 

There are some of you who might not be having so much liking for Bollywood stars and instead prefer Hollywood actors and actresses. Some of the popular names to list down is Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet, Drew Barrymore, John Travolta, Keanu Reeves, Morgan Freeman, Matt Damon, Bradley Cooper, Jim Carrey, Jennifer Lopez, Dwayne Johnson, Leonardo Di Caprio, Johnny Depp, Ben Affleck, and so on. But do you pronounce their names properly? 

Just imagine how would a person feel if you pronounce her/his name incorrectly. Of course, either he will scold you for that, or if gentle by nature will advise you not to repeat that again. Either way, it would certainly seem bad. And to be honest, there is nothing to feel bad about the person. The fault is yours for not properly calling the name of the person. 

And it is not the case with only the general people, even stars get irritated when someone pronounces their name wrongly. Daughter of Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is the example to mention here. She got infuriated when people on Instagram mispronounced her name wrongly with saying EE-ra when actually it is Ira. 

Well, if you have also been making the same mistake in pronouncing the names of some celebrities, then it’s time to mend it now. And we are going to help you out with it.
