Chennai, Nov 18 (IANS) Tamil actor Sivakarthikeyan, who is currently basking in the success of five back-to-back hits, has named his newborn daughter Aaradhana borrowing the first letter from the names of his wife and parents.

"I'm extremely happy to be a father. I have named by daughter Aaradhana after using the first letters from the names of my wife Aarthi, mother Raji and father Doss. Even though I ended up stealing letters from their names instead of being creative, I'm happy overall," Siva told IANS.
