Questions like ‘Will she? Won’t she?’ (change her last name) have become as old as time itself. However, the answers of actresses revealing whether or not they will be changing their names after tying the knot often surprises us. This question is now being thrown a lot around newlyweds, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh as well. You see, two other celebrity brides, Sonam Kapoor (Ahuja) and Priyanka Chopra (Jonas) have done it already. Hence, the question now remains whether or not DP will follow suit.
Well, the actress has answered it and voiced her thoughts on the subject in a recent interview with Hindustan Times. The had previously joked about asking Ranveer to change the name. When asked if that was actually happening, she gave a more serious and honest reply.

Here’s what she 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’.

She also told Hindustan Times that it they had both worked hard at creating their own identities and wouldn’t want either of them to give it up.
Looks like Deepika won’t be changing her name after all.  What’s your take on this whole topic? Should women have to take on their husband’s name given the day and age we live in? I know I wouldn’t want to, what about you?
On the work front, DP is expected to shoot for Meghna Gulzar‘s Chhapaak soon, which the actress will also be co-producing.
