Amidst the lockdown, the Doordarshan channel announced the re-telecast of mythological epics such Mahabharat and Ramayan, in order to keep everyone busy and to remind us of the good old days. People all around the nation are enjoying the re-run of these shows.
Recently, Mukesh Khanna, the actor who played the role of Bhishma Pitamah in Mahabharat, took a dig at Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha.
Well, for the unversed, Sonakshi Sinha had appeared on the show Kaun Banega Crorepati and was asked a question related to Ramayana. However, the actress failed to answer for whom the Hanuman got the Sanjeevani booti.
Taking a dig at Sonakshi Singa, Mukesh Khanna had said:
“I think the re-runs will be useful to many who haven’t watched the show earlier. It will also help people like Sonakshi Sinha who have no knowledge about our mythological sagas. People like her don’t know who did lord Hanuman get Sanjivani for.”
Well, Mukesh Khanna’s statements didn’t go down well with Shatrughan Sinha, the father of Sonakshi Sinha who has now finally opened up about the same and has slammed the actor for the same. In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Shatrughan Sinha said:
“I believe someone has problem with Sonakshi not answering a question on the Ramayan. Firstly 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?”
“I am very proud of all my three children. Sonakshi became a star on her own. I never had to launch her career.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.”
