Sonakshi Sinha-Ramayan-KBC Controversy: Mahabharat's Puneet DURYODHAN Issar's Reply To Mukesh BHISHAM PITA Khanna, "As You Age, You Should Be Graceful'- EXCLUSIVE
So, the other day, Mukesh Khanna accused Ekta Kapoor of "murdering" Mahabharat in her 2008 show Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabharaat Ki. In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, Khanna who played Bhishma in the BR Chopra's Mahabharat, criticised the producer for "slaughtering" the epic by "putting a tattoo on Draupadi's shoulder" and "creating a vamp-like image for Satyavati" (great-grandmother of the Pandavas and Kauravas). Quoting him: "The new version of Shaktimaan cannot be the way Ekta Kapoor made Mahabharat (in 2008) by putting a tattoo on Draupadi's shoulder. She had said that she was making Mahabharat for modern people. Sanskriti kabhi modern nahi ho sakti, putri. Jis din Sanskriti ko modern karoge, khatam ho jayegi' (Culture can never be modern. The day you try to make culture modern, it will be over)."

Few days prior to that, he had reportedly (and allegedly) targeted Sonakshi Sinha for her inability to reply to a Ramayana question on Kaun Banega Crorepati, for which she was even trolled; trolls arguing that she should have known as her building's name (in Juhu) is also Ramayan. That Khanna later denied he'd taken a dig at Sonakshi is a different story.


Shatrughan Sinha got up and defended his daughter. "I believe someone has problem with Sonakshi not answering a question on the Ramayan. Firstly what qualifies this person to be an expert on all things to do with the Ramayan? And who has appointed him the guardian of the Hindu religion?"
Bollywood Hungama quoted him.
“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 Ramayan doesn’t disqualify Sonakshi from being a good Hindu. She doesn’t need a certificate of approval from anyone," Shotgun further thundered to the same portal.

Nitish Bhardwaj who played Krishna in the same B R Chopra show did not like the way Khanna spoke of Sonakshi. Now, Puneet Issar, who played Duryodhan in Chopra's mythological, is also not happy with Khanna.


Talking to SpotboyE.com EXCLUSIVELY this evening, Issar said, "Khanna shouldn't have said that. Sonakshi is an AVM student, my kids too went there. If she didn't know one question of Ramayan in KBC, the world doesn't end there.

Why should one condemn someone so openly? At least I wouldn't have said what Khanna has said.

This is my personal opinion. I don't want to speak against him. But think of it, he again sparked off another controversy by speaking against Ekta. Nobody has a copyright over Mahabharat, sabko haque hai usko banane ka. Even Sajid Nadiadwala's grandfather had made a film on Mahabharat and it was a super hit film. Dara Singh was the hero and it was from Bhisham Pita's perspective.

As you age, you should be graceful. Phal lagte hain toh pedh jhuk jaana chahiye."

Well, well, well... Ekta, Nitish, Sonakshi and Shatruji- have you tuned in?
