Yesterday, Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha made an appearance on Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati, but looks like that didn’t really end up well for her. A question related to Ramayana which she failed to have knowledge about, has led to a plethora of brutal trolls on Twitter and it’s getting viral literally like a wildfire.
In the episode, Big B, the host, asked one of the questions that read, “According to Ramayana, Hanuman fetched the Sanjeevani herb for whom?”. To this, Sonakshi went clueless and said she thinks its Ram, and quipped on other options as well while the contestant chose ‘Sita’. They both ended up choosing a lifeline thereafter.
Soon after the episode went live, Twitter was stormed with memes and backlash with Twiteratti criticising the actress for not knowing the answer to Ramayana despite having family members named all related to the mythological book.
For the unknown, from Sonakshi’s father, Shatrughan, to brothers Luv, Kush and uncles named Lakshman, Bharat – all the names are related to Ramayana and the basic expectation of fans was for the actress to at least know the answer to it.
Trends like #SonakshiSinha #YoSonakshiSoDumb #Ramayana #KBC #KBC 11 amongst others were going viral witnessing nationwide trending!
