Due to the nationwide lockdown during the spread of Coronavirus, DD channel has made a bright decision by rerunning two of the most watched and followed Indian mythological series, Ramayan and Mahabharat from the 1980s. Since the viewers are going through nostalgia, they are all glues to the TV which has led to the shows breaking records of viewership in India.
Since the beginning of the show, the trolls have resurfaced with the whole Sonakshi Sinha story when she was unable to answer a simple question about Ramayan during her guest appearance in Kaun Banega Crorepati.
During the question answer round in Kaun Banega Crorepati, a question was posed to Sonakshi Sinha by the host Amitabh Bachchan that “According to Ramayan, Hanuman fetched the Sanjeevani Buti for whom?” When Sonakshi Sinha was unable to answer the question, Amitabh Bachchan displayed a subtle disbelief as Sonakshi’s father and his uncles have been named after different characters of the epic. Their house is also named Ramayan.
Before airing of this particular scene of fetching the Sanjeevani Buti in Doordarshan, the channel decided to conduct a twitter poll by asking the exact same question that was posed to Sonakshi Sinha in KBC.
Twitter users and other netizens are now convinced that the poll done by DD is actually to troll Sonakshi Sinha and are reacting to it in the best way possible. Some of the users have even made memes on the situation. Here are the reactions:
