Actress Samyuktha On Removing Her Last Name Menon From Social Media And Upcoming Projects: I Realized I Shouldn't Have It When
Samyuktha, who is most known for her roles in Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu films, recently discussed why she decided to take this action now and why she erased her last name from her social media profiles.
Actress Samyuktha recently discussed the reasons behind her decision to go without a last name. She is now waiting for the release of her next Tamil-Telugu bilingual film Vaathi. Social media users have taken notice of footage from a recent interview in which she discussed the reasons she chose to drop her last name.
Samyuktha last appeared in the Telugu movie Bheemla Nayak, directed by Pawan Kalyan and starring Rana Daggubati. She portrayed Rana's wife in the film, a replica of the popular Malayalam film Ayyappanum Koshiyum. Samyuktha recently discussed officially dropping her last name in an interview in order to set an example.
She claimed in the video that she has taken her last name off of all of her social media profiles and the materials used to promote her films. She said, “This thought occurred to me long back. When we are enrolled into a school, we need a name for official purpose. So we never think so much back then. I always used to think about why people have this, this ‘tail’. The thought really struck me when I became an actor. When I understood the responsibility of an actor, I realized I shouldn’t have it (surname)".
She added, “When I want to see equality, humanity and love all around, keeping a surname makes it very contradictory to what I want. Also, my parents are divorced and my mother wished to not retain my father’s surname. I wanted to respect my mother’s feelings.”
Samyuktha portrays a biology teacher in Vaathi. The movie, which was directed by Venky Atluri, also features Samuthirakani and Dhanush. The movie is set in the 1990s. It will highlight the privatization of the educational system and how private schools dominated at that time. Dhanush will make his Telugu debut with the bilingual film, which was produced in both Tamil and Telugu. On February 17, both of the film's versions—Sir in Telugu—will be released internationally.
