Tere Naam (English: In your name) is a 2003 Bollywood romantic drama film directed by Satish Kaushik and written by Bala, starring Salman Khan and Bhoomika Chawla in her Hindi film debut. The film is a remake of Bala's own directional venture, Tamil film Sethu (1999).
The film is supposedly based on a true story as the DVD cover says "Unfortunately a true love story", though during the end credits a fictitious disclaimer is shown. Before the release of the film media speculated the film was based on Khan's real life relationship with actress Aishwarya Rai.
Tere Naam was released on 15 August 2003 and was major success at the box office. Salman was highly praised for his portrayal of Radhe Mohan and is widely considered to be his finest performances, till date. Tere Naam was nominated for a total of 24 Awards, winning 4 of them, including 8 Filmfare Award nominations. In 2011 Kaushik announced a sequel to Tere Naam, thus he is currently working on the script.
Radhe Mohan (Salman Khan), a rowdy ex-college boy who, after a ragging (hazing) session, loses his heart to first year student Nirjara (Bhumika Chawla), a traditional Brahmin girl. Just when Nirjara reciprocates his love, Radhey is attacked by a gang of thugs, loses his mind and is admitted to an ashram where, it is hoped, the more traditional means of treatment could have a therapeutic effect on him.
Eventually he returns to normal, and rushes back to Nijaras house, only to find that she has committed suicide, because her family were forcing her to marry another man. After accepting this fact he returns to the ashram. In the end it shows Swamiji tending to nothing meaning that Radhey has been cured and has left the ashram fine except for the fact that he lost his love.
