Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 hosted by Amitabh Bachchan is trending on Twitter but for all the wrong reasons. The season 11 of the show has gone under the scanner for a question that was asked where it referred Aurangzeb as ‘Samrat’ and referred Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj as just ‘Shivaji’.
The question which was asked on the show was, “Which ruler was the contemporary of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.”
It didn’t go well with the netizens and they slammed the show for not showing respect for Shivaji and called out Aurangzeb as ‘Samrat’. #Boycott_KBC_SonyTv started to trend on Twitter and It was one of the top trending hashtags on Twitter on Friday morning.
Here’s how Twitter reacted:
How one can say Mughal attacker as ‘Samrat’ and our Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj as just ‘Shivaji’ ???
