After Doordarshan began re-telecast episodes of Ramayana and Mahabharat, Bhishma Pitamah from ‘Mahabharat’ aka Mukesh Khanna left a remark which stated that the shows would help people like Sonakshi Sinha. Sonakshi’s father Shatrughan Sinha wasn’t comfortable with these remarks of his and came to her defense and stated that she doesn’t need a certificate of approval from anyone, further even questioning Mukesh Khanna.
‘Who Appointed Him As Guardian Of Hindu Religion?’ – Shatrughan Sinha Questioned Mukesh Khanna
Talking to Bollywood Hungama, Shatrughan asked,
“I believe someone has a problem with Sonakshi not answering a question on the Ramayana. Firstly what qualifies this person to be an expert on all things to do with the Ramayana? And who has appointed him (Mukesh Khanna) the guardian of the Hindu religion?”
‘Not Answering Question On Ramayana Doesn’t Disqualify Sonakshi From Being Good Hindu’
Former Politician further added,
“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 Ramayana doesn’t disqualify Sonakshi from being a good Hindu. She doesn’t need a certificate of approval from anyone.”
Mukesh Khanna’s Comments On Sonakshi Sinha
Mukesh Khanna was quoted saying
“I think the reruns will be useful to many who haven’t watched the show earlier. It will also help people like Sonakshi Sinha who do not know our mythological sagas. People like her don’t know for whom lord Hanuman got Sanjivani for. There is a video doing the rounds where few boys are asked whose Mama (uncle) was Kans and they got scared to answer. Some said Duryodhan, others said something else, so they are not aware of the mythology,”
Sonakshi Sinha Was Unable To Answer Question On ‘Sanjeevani Booti’
Sonakshi Sinha was a guest on Amitabh Bachchan’s show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, wherein she failed to answer who did Hanuman bring ‘Sanjeevani booti’ for. The actress at first answered ‘sita’ and later asked for the help of an expert.
