Actor Manish Uppal, who did a cameo in Ranbir Kapoor-starrer "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani", has changed his name to Tridev.
After failing to find a foothold in filmdom, the actor has sought refuge in numerology to boost his career.
"It's according to the numerology principles. I have taken advice from an expert and then opted for the name. Tridev will be my screen name. I am doing a film called 'Life Mein Twist Hai' and there I will be known as Tridev," he said in a statement.
The film revolves around a student who falls for the professor. And Tridev plays the lead role of the professor.
"I am passionate about my work and am confident that my hard work and patience will pay off," said the actor who started his career with commercials.
He was also seen in "Kya Kool Hain Hum".
