Why do Muslims in South Asia use pre-Islamic Persian or Iranian names, but not pre-Islamic Sanskritic names?

Who is Salman Khan's mother, BTW? I kind of hazily remember reading from somewhere that she is the actress Helen. So her name has kind of stuck in my mind since then as his mother. But just recently I read that she is named something else, can't recall it now.
Helen is Salman Khan's Step mother.

LOL. Mr. Aup, how cud you hv made such a profound mistake.
Yeah, the hubby does hv a certain resemblance to SRK.
BTW, I miss Divya Bharati. She was heavenly, man. Divine, befitting her name. Always a delight to watch.
What you say seems to be true. Mistake by a web-site. People make mistakes. Salman's mother and Helen bond together very well. :)
Agree with you, unfortunate lady.

Saif Ali Khan's grandmother is Sharmila Tagore, right? Or something like that.
Sharmila Tagore is Saif Ali Khan's mother, her husband was Nawab Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, he was from the family of Nawabs of Pataudi. Sharmila Tagore belongs to Rabindranath Tagore's family.
