Ranveer Singh To Break All Rules & Take Wife Deepika Padukone’s Surname
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are not just an adorable couple but also one of those couples who are way apart from all those societal stereotypes. The couple married in November 2018 and have since then given major couple goals. Now, here’s another path-breaking thought shared by Ranveer Singh on taking up Deepika Padukone’s name.
On the talk show, Famously Filmfare, Ranveer said: “Since I have dropped my surname, I need a new one, so why not! It’s a legendary surname.” The conversation about changing one’s surname after getting married may seem flippant, but is quite a loaded one. When women change their names after getting married, they are basically trading in their identity to become a man’s wife. Men are not expected to do that, and when someone like Ranveer makes the above statement, it immediately is lauded as a revolutionary act. In an ideal world, no one should be expected to give up their identities after getting married. If it is simply an expression of love, then why are we shocked when men say that they will take their wife’s surname?
Well he has definitely come a long way since. Perhaps Deepika sat him down and schooled him on why feminism is indeed important for both men and women. All in all, we are happy that Ranveer Singh has started an important conversation; and Ranveer Padukone does have a ring to it!
