Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha has hit out at haters who brutally trolled her for her perceived ignorance about Hindi religious book Ramayana. Sonakshi had accompanied one Ruma Devi to Friday night’s episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati, where even the show host Amitabh Bachchan pulled her up for not knowing questions about Ramayana.
Sonakshi’s KBC appearance dominated social media conversations all through Saturday with the Bollywood actress even trending nationally. Many pointed out that Sonakshi’s official residence in Mumbai was named Ramayana, while others noted names of her father and uncles were taken the popular characters of Ramayana.
Unfazed by incessant trolling, Sonakshi took to Twitter to lash out at her haters. Announcing that she loved ‘memes’ on her, the Dabangg actress said, “Dear jaage hue trolls. I don’t even remember the Pythagoras theorem,Merchant of Venice,Periodic Table,Chronology of the Mughal Dynasty,aur kya kya yaad nahi woh bhi yaad nahi. Agar aapke paas koi kaam nahi aur Itna time hai toh please yeh sab pe bhi memes banao na. I love memes.”

The question, which placed Sonakshi under a huge spotlight was, “According to the Ramayana, Hanuman fetched the Sanjeevani herb for whom?” The correct answer was Lakshmana, who was the younger brother of Lord Ram. Lakshamana, according to Ramayana, had accompanied Ram when he was exiled for 14 years.
Sonakshi’s first reaction to the question was Sita, Ram’s wife. But, as Bachchan explained, it was Lakshamana who was injured after being hit by an arrow from Meghnad, who was the son of Raavan. Hanuman was asked to bring Sanjeevani herb from the Himalayas, but since he was unable to identify the herb, he ended up bringing the entire mountain.
Sonakshi earned plenty of plaudits after she promised to not only help Ruma Devi launch her own brand but also become her brand ambassador for free. Ruma Devi went on to win Rs 12.50 lakh on the show.
