The 'Tan' in Tan France stands for Tanvir and that is one of the many reasons why South Asians gush over the Queer Eye star. The others being he's talented, witty, compassionate and relatable when it comes to being a Bollywood fan with 90s music nostalgia.

He posted a series of Instagram Stories recently and opened up about his love for the Bollywood industry, listing his favourite songs and you might be surprised what made the list.

Mehbooba Mehbooba

Movie: Sholay

Pardesi Pardesi

Movie: Raja Hindustani

Payalay chunmun

Movie: Virasat

Oh Oh Jane Jaana

Movie: Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya

Rang De

Movie: Thakshak

We approve of the five timeless classics on his list. But Tan made a hilarious revelation about himself: his childhood nickname Tanno was inspired by the horse in Sholay.

"My name is obviously Tan to my family. However, my name is actually Tanvir so most of my elders — my grandparents — actually call me Tanno. My nickname from childhood isn't Tan, but Tanno," he laughed.

He also clarified that calling himself Tan doesn't mean he's ashamed of being South Asian. That's the name his parents called him and the one that resonates with him.
