Actor Sushant Singh drops Rajput from name in protest

Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput has removed his last name Rajput for a day.

This is to show his anger against the recent attack on filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali by members of a Rajput group called Karni Sena.

Bhansali was slapped and the sets of his film Padmavati was damaged by protestors in Jaipur last week. The protestors say that the film Padmavati shows the Rajput queen Rani Padmavati in a bad light. They also want him to change the title of the film.
