Actor Rajkumar Yadav, who recently played the title role in biopic Shahid, is once again getting talked about for his name.

Earlier, the 29-year-old actor had dropped his surname, Yadav. But has now decided to change his name to Rajkummar Rao. “Yeah, my mother has asked me to keep it that way, and they are very adamant that I keep it like this. I thought why not try it,” he said, adding, “And I always wanted to keep my surname as Rao because Yadav or Rao is the same surname in Haryana. I thought if you have to add one extra ‘M’, this is the time to add Rao also.”

The actor has also acted in films like Love, Sex Aur Dhokha and Kai Po Che.
