While her fellow actresses Priyanka Chopra and Sonam Kapoor changed their names to Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Sonam K Ahuja respectively, after marriage, Deepika Padukone was also expected to add ‘Singh’ to her surname after getting hitched to Ranveer Singh. However, this is not the case.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Padukone said, “It’s not true. In fact, after that interview I realised that it’s a conversation Ranveer and I’ve never even had. So, we haven’t been like, ‘oh, do you think you should change your surname?’ That [chat about it in an interview] was, of course, a candid joke of sorts. It has never crossed either of our minds. When I was asked about it, I was like, ‘oh, we haven’t even thought about it’.”
“Maybe because it’s not important. Also, I’ve worked extremely hard to create my own identity and so has he. So, my question is, ‘why would he have to do that?’ I think what people see of us is a very minuscule part of our entire being and existence. But at the core of it, we are very alike,” she added.
