Sonakshi Sinha Found herself being targeted by the social media trolls on Saturday morning, just a day after she made an appearance on the popular TV quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati 11. The reason - the actress failed to answer a Ramayana related question that was asked during the show.
Sonakshi was the special guest on KBC Karamveer episode, where she extended her support to social activist Ruma Devi. The duo managed to win a whopping prize money of Rs. 12,50,000.
However, what caught the Internet's attention the most was the fact that Sonakshi didn't know the answer to a Ramayana related question.
The question asked during the show was, "According to Ramayana, Hanuman fetched the Sanjeevani herb for whom?" Sonakshi, who wasn't quite sure of the right answer, guessed Sita and Ram at first. However, she finally resorted to Ask The Expert helpline to get the right answer (which was Lakshman).
A section of the Internet wasn't very impressed with Sonakshi's lack of general knowledge and shared several memes on Twitter. The hashtag '#YoSonakshiSoDumb' has been trending incessantly on Twitter. Here are some memes:
Several Twitter users reminded the actress that her house's name is Ramayana, her father Shatrughan and his siblings are named after Ram and his brothers and that Sonakshi's brothers are named Luv and Kush.
Many compared Sonakshi's KBC moment to Alia Bhatt's Koffee With Karan oopsie. A few years ago, Alia appeared on Karan Johar's talk show Koffee With Karan 4, wherein she wrongly named politician Prithviraj Chavan as the President of India during the 'Koffee Quiz' segment of the show. Alia Bhatt ended up getting brutally trolled by the netizens for that.
