Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 hosted by Amitabh Bachchan is trending on Twitter but for all the wrong reasons. The season 11 of the show is receiving flak on social media 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.”

The reference has hurt the sentiments of the people of Maharashtra, who took to Twitter and started trending ‘#Boycott_KBC_SonyTV’ for disrespecting the great Maratha warrior.

However, Sony TV has now issued an apology in the matter and had even carried a scroll for the same and express their regret on the Thursday episode of KBC 11.

They took to Twitter and wrote, “There was an inaccurate reference to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj during Wednesday’s KBC episode, due to inadvertence. We deeply regret the same and being mindful of the sentiments of our viewers has carried a scroll expressing regret during our episode yesterday. #KBC11.”
