Dalljiet Kaur has taken on a new name and announced it on
social media a few hours ago alongside an adorable picture of her and son,
Jaydon. She captioned the photograph, "#Deepa #Jaydon
Curious as to why she adopted a new name, we got in touch
with the actress and she confessed, "My mom suggested the idea. She wanted
me to keep a simple and homely name and we went with Deepa.”
So where did the name Deepa come from?
It's my nickname. I was born on Deepawali and instantly
everyone said that Laxmi has come home. Post that everyone began calling me
that. It was a name given from the heart without thinking too much. It feels
very personal when someone calls me Deepa. Letting this name become my official
name feels very nice.
You’ve taken the step after spending a substantial amount
of time in the TV industry. Are you able to relate to it?
Absolutely. I think more than half of the people in this
industry and my life already call me Deepa. It will be awesome to have everyone
call me by one name now.
Your popular as Dalljiet Kaur amongst fans. Wouldn’t it
be confusing for them?
I think people who follow me will know this through your
portal. And, as far as the industry is concerned, more than half of them call
me that anyway.
Will you be changing your name in official documents
I haven't decided that yet. It takes a lot of time and
