Prithvi was originally named Mahesh for those who are unaware.
Talking to SpotboyE.com exclusively Prithvi Tanwar told us, "I was extremely close to my Tauji. Unfortunately he is not with us anymore. And after his death I decided to adopt his name so that I can feel he is there with me all the time. Vo is duniya mein rahe na rahe unka naam hamesha rehna chahiye. I chose to keep his name in order to honour my uncle's legacy and to make him proud by achieving milestones. I didn't consult anyone before taking this decision or went to any pandit to understand if it will work in my favour or not".
