The stars must be crazy

PTI reports:
Film actress Jaya Bachchan, who filed her nomination papers for the Rajya Sabha bypolls yesterday, has changed her name to Bachchan Jaya Amitabh. [...] The change in name is being attributed to 'astrological considerations' as the earlier name apparently did not suit Jaya...
Well, well, well. Maybe if this one doesn't work either she should just change her name to Rekha. Or to Kaun Banega Crorepati. Confuse the hubby, and hell, she's an entertainer, and all this will entertain us as well.

I can just imagine Bachchan Amitabh coming home and asking, "Jaya, I mean, Rekha, I mean Kaun Banega, can I have some tea please?" Yeah, all hail The Artist Formerly Known As Jaya.

Some old posts on astrology: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
