Veteran actor Dharmendra, who has been a part of the Hindi film industry for 64 years, has changed his on-screen name. The 88-year-old actor, who is playing a pivotal role in Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon-starrer Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya, has modified his name in the credits scene in the film.

Dharmendra was last seen in Karan Johar's Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani with Jaya Bachchan, Shabana Azmi, Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. He will next be seen in Ikkis with Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson, Agastya Nanda. The film is directed by Sriram Raghavan.
