Sushant Singh Rajput drops his surname from his Twitter handle to support Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Many Bollywood celebs like Hrithik Roshan, Shabana Azmi, Alia Bhatt, Sunny Leone, Karan Johar, etc. have come in support of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and have condemned the assault the director faced recently on the sets of ‘Padmavati’ in Jaipur, at the hands of ‘Karni Sena’, who claim to be the supporters of Rajput heritage and are ‘supposedly’ angry at the fimmaker for ruining the history and honour of Rani Padmavati.

However, actor Sushant Singh Rajput went a step ahead, and did something really impressive.

The actor tweeted, “We would suffer till the time we’re obsessed with our surnames. If you’re that courageous,give us your first name to acknowledge. #padmavati.”

While reading his tweet we observed that Sushant himself has dropped his surname. Earlier, the actor had his whole name ‘Sushant Singh Rajput’ on his Twitter handle, and now it’s only Sushant. The actor’s this gesture is really commendable.

‘Padmavati’ stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor. It is slated to hit the screens on November 17, 2017. Currently, after the incident the shooting of the film has been put on hold, and the crew is headed to Mumbai from Jaipur.
