Python IMDbPY – Getting alternate names of person

  • Last Updated : 11 Jun, 2021

In this article we will see how we can get the alternate names of the person from the person object, alternate names are basically nick names given to them or stage name i.e name by which they are called, imdb person object act similar to dictionary therefore getting image from person object is similar from getting required information from the dictionary. 
 

In order to do this we have to do the following – 
1. Get the person object with the help of id by using get_person method 
2. Get the alternate names from it using result[‘akas’] as keys 
3. Print the result 
 

Note : Output will be the link of the image i.e string data type not actual image
Below is the implementation 
 

Python3




# importing the module
import imdb
 
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
 
# person id
code = "1596350"
 
# getting person object
actor = ia.get_person(code)
 
# printing object it prints its name
print(actor)
 
# getting alternate names
alternate = actor['akas']
 
# printing
print(alternate)

Output : 
 



Nawazuddin Siddiqui
['Nawazuddin', 'Novaz', 'Nowaz', 'Nawazuddin Siddique', 'Nawaz Uddin']
