Earlier, in an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Mallika Sherawat, had opened up about her decision to drop her father's surname. She had recalled fighting patriarchy in her hometown, Haryana and running away from her house to pursue a career in acting. Mallika had stated that her father had felt that she would ruin their family's reputation by venturing into showbiz. She had stated:

“It was my rebellion against patriarchy because my father said, ‘Ye filmo mein jayegi, parivaar ka naam kharab karegi, main tereko disown karta hoon.”

In the same conversation, Mallika had recalled the time when her father had even threatened to disown her. And after that ugly fight with her dad, she had deliberately dropped Lamba from her name to inherit her mother, Santosh Sherawat's last name. In her words:

“Maine kaha, 'Main tumhara naam hi disown karti hoon. Tum kya mujhe disown karoge. Yes, you're my dad, I respect you, I love you, main apni maa ka naam use karungi. So I used Sherawat, it's my mother's name.”


On the work front, Mallika will be seen in her upcoming film, RK/Rkay.
