Mona Singh, whose name is Poonam, becomes Mona in the later part of the film 3 Idiots. After squabbling with Viru Sahasrbuddhe, Rancho suddenly starts calling 'Mona Push'. After that everybody, including her father, starts calling her the same name.

Is this a movie mistake or was Mona her nickname in the film?

Its discussed in many aritical and newspaper but There is no official clarification given for this and its seems only movie mistake or may be done purposely to use Mona's name as a parody to her original name.
