After Doordarshan announced the return of the mythological show on the public demand such Mahabharat and Ramayan coming back on TV, actor Mukesh Khanna, who played the role of Bhishma Pitamah in Mahabharat. He took a dig at actress Sonakshi Sinha for not knowing for whom the Hanuman got the Sanjeevani booti.
He said that the re-runs of the shows will be useful to many who haven’t watched the show earlier.Also help people like Sonakshi Sinha who have no knowledge about our mythological epics.
Reacting to the same, Sonakshi’s father, Shatrughan Sinha has slammed Mukesh Khanna for mocking at the actress and said what qualifies this person to be an expert on all things to do with the Ramayan? And who has appointed him the guardian of the Hindu religion?
Added that , he said, “She is a daughter any father would be proud to have. Not answering a question on the Ramayan doesn’t disqualify Sonakshi from being a good Hindu. She doesn’t need a certificate of approval from anyone.”
For the unversed, Khanna was referring to Sonakshi’s failure to answer a question related to Ramayana in an episode of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ in 2019.
The actor was also trolled on social media for not knowing the story of Ramayana. She, however, hit back at them saying she does not remember many other things and if trollers have no work, they can make memes on them too.
