While many fans thought it was high time that Sonakshi is being trolled for her answers at a recent episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati, now fans have to deal with more criticism. UP Minister Bharala who is a Chairman of the Labour Welfare Council, called Sonakshi a 'Dhan Pashu' (money animal) and mentioned that such people have no time for learning and only care about earning money.
He said, "In modern times, these people are only after money. All they care about is earning money and spending that money on themselves. They have no knowledge of history and gods. They have no time for learning. Nothing can be sadder than this.”
The Minister referred to Sonakshi's recent fiasco and failure to answer a question related to Ramayana on an episode of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' on September 20.
Sonakshi was asked: "According to Ramayana, Hanuman fetched the 'Sanjeevani Booti' (herb) for whom?”
Apparently, she had no idea about the answer and from the four options given - Sugriva, Lakshmana, Sita and Rama, she finally used a lifeline to answer the question.
The host - Amitabh Bachchan was also surprised at Sonakshi's lack of knowledge. Later, he emphasized on the fact as to how she lives in a house called 'Ramayana' itself. Her father's name is Shatrughan Sinha, whose three other brothers are called Ram, Lakshman, and Bharat, and her own brothers are named Luv and Kush.
Sonakshi was trolled on social media for not knowing the story of Ramayana. However, she hit back at netizens saying she does not remember many other things and if trollers have no work, they can make memes on them too.
