    Anushka Sharma's look in her upcoming movie PK was revealed a few days ago in which we got to know her on-screen character's name as well. Her role in the movie as been weirdly named as Jagat Janini, while Aamir's role in the movie has been named as PK.

    This is not the first time we are seen such unique names in Bollywood movies, I know they are quite shocking names but filmmakers always experiment with the names of the characters in the movies, especially Raju Hirani. From his movie Munnabhai to 3 Idiots and now the PK movie, he always has a number of characters in his movies with weird and funny names. 

    There was a time in Bollywood when the lead hero and heroine's name was so cliched that every alternate movie or every movie of that actor would have the same character name. For example Shahrukh Khan, for ages he has done movies in which his name was either Rahul or Raj, never stepping out of the box. Same goes with Salman Khan too, well that was until Dabangg happened when Chulbul Pandey aka Robinhood Pandey was born.

    There is a whole new wave in the film industry now where the lead characters have been given such weird, unique ans funny names. Earlier it was only the villains and comic characters who sported funny names like Mogambo and Crime Master Gogo. The present trend is definitely changing and huge credit goes to Raju Hirani for his movies and those of Rohit Shetty which have given birth to characters with super funny names.

    So going with the current trend we thought of collaborating 12 funniest character names we have come across in Bollywood over the years. From PK, Golmaal to a really old film, Karma, here is the list of shocking but funny character names we have ever seen in Bollywood movies.
