Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai's  Mohsin Khan Reveals The Real Story Behind His Name, Was Called Wasim For Few Days After His Birth
Actor Mohsin Khan who shot to fame with the popular TV show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai where he featured in the male lead opposite TV Shivangi Joshi, was not named Mohsin on his birth. While we know him as Mohsin Khan today, very few know that his name was not Mohsin initially. The actor was called Wasim for a few days when he was born and later his name was changed to Mohsin. His name Wasim was related to his father’s name Abdul Waheed.

Spilling the beans on the same he said, “For a few days, everyone was confused over the name. Some suggested Wasim as my Abbas’ name is Abdul Waheed and they felt that my name should also start with ‘W’.”He adds, “Later, Abba took me to Ajmer Sharif Dargah and kept my name Mohsin, since my Ammi is Mehzabin, so he felt that my name should start with ‘M’. Mohsin is an Arabic word from the Quran sharif which means ‘the one who helps’, derived from the verse ‘Allah hu yu hibbul Muhsinin’, it means Allah loves the one who helps.”

Though the actor is okay being addressed with both the names, he says his friends prefer addressing him by Mohsin, “I would have been okay with both the names but people around me, my friends and family like Mohsin more,” said Mohsin.
