By: Prakriti | April 15, 2017

Punjabi celebrities have the coolest name possible in the world! But really no parent will name their child Yo Yo or randomly put A OR A B at the end of their name like Jazzy B or Kaur B. Of course these names are just their onscreen names which they've themselves chosen. The celebrity onscreen names are catchy and sometimes hilarious but they just can't get rid of their true names, no matter how loud they say their commercial names.

Here's our list of surprising real names of the Punjabi celebrities before they were famous:
