Ramayan: Doordarshan Posts Epic Poll, Netizens Believe It’s Doordarshan’s Way Of Trolling Sonakshi Sinha


The coronavirus pandemic has taken toll over the lives of millions of people across the globe. The ever increasing number of COVID19 cases is giving us nightmares. In India, 4000+ cases have been reported till today. In these depressing times, one of the good things that happened is the return of Ramayan and Mahabharat on TV. Viewers are loving the shows which happily resulted in the former witnessing the highest TV ratings for a TV show since 2015. The viewers are hooked to the show but interestingly Sonakshi Sinha has also became a talking point too. Owing to the incident in the Kaun Banega Crorepati, when she failed to answer a quite simple question about Ramayan, she is being subjected to a series of trolling yet again.

The recent episode of Ramayan gave everyone another chance to have a good laugh at the expense of the Dabangg actress. Taking a dig at the funny KBC incident, Doordarshan shared a poll on Ramayan which says : For whom did Hanuman bring Sanjeevani Booti?

What’s even more interesting are the options – Sugreev, Lakshman and Shatrughan. Netizens are going bananas over the question and have come up with a series of memes.

For all those who are not aware of the KBC incident, here’s what happened. Sonakshi appeared on Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 along with Ruma Devi, an artisan and activist from Barmer, Rajasthan. The question that made room for all the gossip was, “According to Ramayana, Hanuman fetched the Sanjeevani herb for whom?”

The ‘Rowdy Rathore’ actress earlier guessed ‘Sita’, but later changed her answer to ‘Ram’. In the episode, even Amitabh was astonished and asked Sonakshi’ mother to not show the episode to her father. For all the uninitiated ones, Sonakshi’s father’s name is Shatrughan Sinha, her brothers’ names are Luv and Kush and her uncles’ names are Lakshman, Bharat and Ram. Even the bunglow she resides in is named Ramayana.

Many felt that the poll was DD’s attempt to joining the bandwagon of celebrities like ‘Shaktiman’ actor Mukesh Khanna who stated recently that the return of the show could help those like Sonakshi learn.
