We admit the five timeless classics on his list. However, Tan left an interesting revelation about himself. The childhood nickname Tanno was inspired by horses. Sholay.
“My name is, of course, Tan to my family, but my name is actually Tanvir, so most of my elders (grandparents) actually call me Tanno. My childhood nickname is Tanno, not Tan,” he laughed.
He also explained that calling himself Tan does not mean that he is ashamed of being a South Asian. That’s the name his parents called him and resonated with him.
