Prithviraj gave clarification over daughter's name issue

Prithviraj's daughter name 'Alankrita Menon' issue
Prithviraj hasn't thought that when he will reveal his daughter's name to the people then it will become topic of discussion. On Monday (Oct.6), the actor shared his baby's name with the followers on social networking page, but things went out of his hands that he again came out with a clarification on this issue.

 By posting his daughter's name "Alankrita Menon
Prithviraj" on Facebook, invited lots of criticism for adding 'Menon' in the name. Even actor was blamed for upholding the caste system and as a result, Prithviraj again turn to social networking page to explain that name has nothing to do with any caste, belief or religion.

 In the post he wrote - 'To all those who have an opinion on my daughter's name.... I have publicly spoken against caste system and a society that still holds undercurrents of discrimination by the same..and I feel as strongly about it today and will do so forever. My wife all through her professional career has been addressed as Ms. Menon and even today is addressed so by many of her colleagues. Hence, the "Menon" in Alankrita Menon Prithviraj is JUST a name and it so happens that a caste that once existed (according to me) was called the same. We did contemplate Alankrita Supriya Prithviraj but a sequence of three first names did not sound right. 

 And to all my well wishers who suggested Alankrita Prithviraj, as chauvinistic as I am, I would like my child to have her mother's name..even before mine. So reiterating once again, MENON for me is JUST a name and has no significance whatsoever with respect to caste, religion or beliefs.

 I hope that puts to rest the debate on my perspective on the issue and I hope all of you will join us in our prayers and hope that this little girl will one day grow up to be an intelligent, responsible, socially aware young woman. Thank you for all the wishes'.

 Prithviraj Sukumaran and Supriya Menon were blessed with a baby girl on September 8th at a private hospital in Kochi.
