Rajith Menon who made his debut with Kamal’s Goal was recently trolled and abused by fans on social media after claims were made that he was filmmaker Anil Radhakrishnan Menon, and all thanks to Wiki. Anil who has a son and his name is Rajat, Rajith’s profile comes up while searching on Google. Rajith who was holidaying with wife  Sruthi Mohandas as they celebrated their first anniversary was in for some rudeness.

Rajith in his recent interview revealed how when his wife posted a photo on her social media page, there were comments abusing him. They ignored it at first only for them to receive messages like ‘Shame on your father Anil Radhakrishnan Menon.’ He revealed how this left him perplexed because in reality he had only met with Anil Radhakrishnan Menon once or twice and was not related to him. He revealed that his friends then sent him screenshots f the misinformation on Google search that mentioned he was Anil Radhakrishnan Menon's son. But he stated, "My father is Ravi Menon and he is leading a retired life at our house in Thrissur.”

Rajith who is now a victim of cyber-bullying reveals how he felt embarrassed that he was dragged into this mess because of his surname. He then took to social media to clear the air. He informed fans about his identity and his parents. He also revealed that even though he tried to explain himself, he revealed how people outrightly refused to believe him.

He said, “We got the contact number of a person who had posted a misleading post mentioning Anil Radhakrishnan as my father. She is in her 40s and her post was shared by many. So, I chose to explain to her the truth. To my surprise when I said Anil Radhakrishnan is not my father and my father is Ravi Menon, she was not ready to accept it. She was arguing with me that Google and Wikipedia showed that my father is Anil Radhakrishnan and she believes that. (Now) If I have to clear my name, I have to get it corrected on Google and Wikipedia.”
