In fact, he chose to be an assistant director before turning actor to discover acting and filmmaking. So Sanjay Gupta introduces Sikandar as Sikandar only. No Kher attached to the name. Director Hansal Mehta says, "Sikandar is a dashing name. And what’s more he is talented and will make it big on his own. Nobody will refer to him as Sikandar Kher then. He will be called Sikandar… just Sikandar." Ok point taken. Mr Sikandar!
