Rani Mukerji decides to keep her maiden name on the poster of Mardaani!

Rani, who tied the knot with Aditya Chopra recently, has decided to keep her maiden name instead of changing her surname post marriage. Read on to know which other B-town divas changed their last name post marriage

With an intense look on her face and a revolver in her hand, Rani Mukerji looks rugged and unabashedly brutal on the poster of her forthcoming release Mardaani. While the poster looks impressive with Rani playing a cop for the first time in her career, what caught our eye in this still was the actor’s name on it! Yes, Rani has decided to keep her maiden name post her marriage with Chopra scion.

Just like Rani’s wedding in Italy, everything about her movie Mardaani was kept under wraps for its sensitive subject. But the poster has revealed a very important fact about the 36-year-old star’s personal space. It seems the ace actor has decided to go with her maiden name Rani Mukerji instead of changing it to Rani Chopra.

We also hear that posters were printed and released only recently, so it seems to be a conscious decision. Right peeps?
