Released in the year 2003, Tere Naam proved as a turning point in the career of Salman Khan and became one of the most iconic movies of his acting career. Starring Salman Khan and debutant Bhumika Chawla in the lead roles, Tere Naam managed to earn critical and commercial success at the box office.
The movie known for its superhit soundtrack was earlier named after the lead character of Salman Khan, ‘Radhe’, which is also the central character in the entire movie. However, after the production of the movie was completed, the makers decided to change the name of the movie to ‘Jaan Tere Naam’.
