'Nothing Sadder...': UP Official After Sonakshi Sinha's Ramayana Gaffe

Sonakshi Sinha was trolled on the social media for not knowing the story of Ramayana.

 

Meerut: A senior Uttar Pradesh official has slammed Bollywood actor Sonakshi Sinha, who was unable to answer a question on ‘Ramayana’ during a popular television quiz show last week.

Sunil Bharala, who holds a ministerial rank position as Chairman of the Labour Welfare Council, called Sonakshi Sinha a ‘Dhan Pashu’ (money animal) and said such people have no time for learning and only care about earning money.

“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,” he said.

The Minister was referring to Ms Sinha’s failure to answer a question related to Ramayana in an episode of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ on September 20.

On the show to support a contestant from Rajasthan, Sonakshi was asked: “According to Ramayana, Hanuman fetched the ‘Sanjeevani Booti’ (herb) for whom?”

She apparently did not know the answer from the four options given — Sugriva, Lakshmana, Sita and Rama, and finally used a lifeline to answer the question.
