'Lord Krishna' Nitish Bhardwaj Lashes Out At 'Bhishma' Mukesh Khanna For Taking A Jibe At Sonakshi Sinha
Sonakshi Sinha has been trending ever since the original Ramayana and Mahabharat are being rerun on Doordarshan during the Coronavirus lockdown. She came into the picture after she was not able to answer a question on Ramayana Amitabh Bachchan’s quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati. While the actors of the shows and people across the nation are happy that the new generation will get to see the shows and learn about Indian mythology, Mukesh Khanna, who played Bhishma in Mahabharat had taken jibe at Sinha and said the shows will help people like Sonakshi Sinha will know more about the Indian mythology.

Now jumping to the actress’ rescue Nitish Bhardwaj, who played Lord Krishna in Mahabharat, has reacted to Mukesh Khanna’s statement and told Time Of India, “Why target Sonakshi alone? There's always a better way to say the same thing. A balanced, soft and empathetic way; and it is received better too. Seniors seem worthy of respect if they walk the path of empathy.” He then added, “I would like to tell my friend Mukesh Khanna that there may be a whole new generation which doesn't know details of Indian heritage and its literature. It is not their fault.”

He further added, “There was a sea change in India’s economic environment after 1992 that everyone started running the rat race, trying to make their careers and prosper financially. If at all we need to fault someone, which I don’t think is the answer, then it is the previous generation parents, who failed to expose their children to our heritage and literature. It is also due to our myopic educational system, implemented by the British during the Raj, which leaves no room for cultural and value-based education to be a part of our regular curriculum.”  (ALSO READ: Mukesh Khanna Thinks The Rerun Of Ramayan Will Benefit Sonakshi Sinha: It Will Help People Like Her Who Have No Knowledge)
