Actor Sonakshi Sinha, who appeared on game show Kaun Banega Crorepati recently, found herself at the target of not just internet trolls and meme-generators but even the show host Amitabh Bachchan. She made two wrong guesses when Amitabh asked her a question on Ramayana, before making the final and correct guess on the show.
Sonakshi appeared on Friday’s episode of KBC 11 to support and help a contestant from Rajasthan . During the show, she was asked, “According to Ramayana, Hanuman fetched the Sanjeevani buti (herb) for whom?” She got confused between four options – Sugriva, Lakshmana, Sita and Rama. The actor took a lifeline to answer the particular question and for the same, she faced a backlash from the netizens on Twitter. Hashtags #YoSonakshiSoDumb was among the top India trends on Twitter on Saturday.
Even Amitabh could not restrain himself from schooling the young actor. “Aapke pitaji ka naam hai Shatrughan, aap jis ghar me rehti hain, uska naam hai Ramayana.Aapke jitne chacha hain, wo sab Ramayan se sambandhit hain, Aapko ye nahi pata ki Lakshman ke liye laaye they jadibooti? (Your father and uncles names are derived from Ramayan, you live in a house called Ramayana. How you not know for whom did Hanuman bring Jadibooti?)” To which Sonakshi replied, “Mujhe laga tha, lekin mai inke liye bahut nervous thi to chance nahi lena chahti thi (I thought it should be Lakshman but did not want to take any chance).” Sonakshi’s mother Poonam Sinha laughed through the entire discussion as she sat among the audience.

Another user shared a series of pictures on Twitter with one from the show and the other from the film Hera Pheri. “Just a scenario why Bollywood is considered crass and brainless….. Sonakshi Sinha requesting lifeline for this question is justifying that…” he wrote.
“Shatrughan Sinha (with brothers Ram, Lakshman, Bharat and sons Luv and Kush who all live in the home called Ramayana) after #sonakshisinha ‘s answer in #KBC11 #KBC,” chimed another user while sharing a GIF which said, “Are you serious right now?”
