Mahesh Trashes Caste, Surname Logics!It is common for women from influential families to carry two surnames after marriage- one being their paternal, and the other being that of their in-laws. Nandamuri Balakrishna’s daughter, Tejaswini did the same.

Tejaswini Balakrishna operated as the creative consultant for Balakrishna‘s Unstoppable. In the end credits, her name was displayed as M. Tejaswini Nandamuri. She took M – Mathukimilli from her husband – M Bharat’s surname and also continued the Nandamuri surname. A few media outlets found fault with the same and started saying Tejaswini is still carrying Nandamuri tag for brand image.

Cut to now, superstar wished his wife Namrata on the occasion of her birthday. “Happy birthday NSG… You are my rock. Thank you for sharing my world with me” Mahesh tweeted. The NSG stands for Namrata Shirodkar Ghattamaneni.

Well, a superstar like Mahesh is pronouncing his wife Namrata’s name with two surnames. There is nothing wrong in women carrying two surnames. But a few media portals, just to sling mud at apolitical individuals are sensationalizing it and publishing malicious articles.
