<p>The actress described the participant as follows: “Madhurima from Ranchi, Jharkhand is here with us. She works as a section officer for the department of forestry, environment, and climate change. I don’t know your complete name, Madhurima.</p>
<p>She replied, “Sir, my name is Madhurima,” to Amitabh. I’ve only used the name Madhurima. Typically, sir, we see that the surname is the father’s name. Your surname is changed to your husband’s last name after marriage.</p>
<p>“Or a woman’s name ends in ‘devi,’ for example. You don’t get the reverence that a “devi” (goddess) should. It is really unusual. I didn’t like the word “devi” at the end. After getting married, I had the idea of adding a surname. My husband asked me whether I wanted to take his last name after we were married. He just needed to know my name, I informed him. You see, I don’t need that,” she said.</p>
<p>The actor of “Piku” fame praised Madhurima and said, “That’s amazing. Madhurima, you have such amazing views. They radiate such power. We heard from you on the new custom you started. On that, I want to congratulate you.</p>
<p>The 80-year-old actor said, “I have also done it several times with my name. The caste system was not something that my father (Harivansh Rai Bachchan) was a supporter of.</p>
<p>“A person’s surname in India indicates his caste. My father was a Kayasth by birth. He decided to use Bachchan, his poet alias, as his last name. That ended up becoming his name, Amitabh remarked.</p>
<p>After I grew up, I had to enroll in school, he added. My parents were questioned at the school for my last name. according to the memoirs of my father. This is something that I have also brought up often. My parents exchanged confused glances as they considered their options. My mum advised him to adopt your last name. I became Amitabh Bachchan in this way.</p>
<p>“Your views are admirable,” the ‘Mard’ star replied. One’s caste and last name are questioned.</p>
<p>“I agree, sir,” Madhurima said in response. Individuals form groupings. Even at work, they form different groups.</p>
<p>I’m sure you’re aware of the census, the actor remarked. There are several names, ages, heights, and weights listed. For caste, there is another division. That wasn’t filled up by me. and I was questioned about my caste. I identified as Indian.</p>
<p>“I was informed they were aware of it. ‘No, sir. You must state your caste. I retorted, “I won’t. I don’t belong to a caste. “I’m Indian,” Next time, I’ll say, “I’m an Indian, and our Chandrayaan touched down on the moon,” he said.</p>
