Because of this, there was a lot of confusion because of my name, because there are many Rajkumar in the industry, ‘Rajkumar Santoshi, Rajkumar Gupta, Rajkumar Hirani’.

He said that even calls used to come to me and people used to request me to assist with them. I used to think, I am an actor, why does he want to assist me. Then I realized that people are confused due to the similar names of three directors with me. He said that my surname is Yadav from Haryana, but then I thought Rajkumar Rao is the title given to Yadavs in Haryana, that is the reason why I liked being called Rajkumar Rao.
