Ongoing quiz reality show Kaun Banega Crorepati 11, hosted by Amitabh Bachchan has landed in controversy. Just to throw light for the readers who don’t follow the show, on Wednesday, Big B had asked a question to a contestant named Shaheha Chandran which was for Rs. 80,000, with four options. And it’s the options which didn’t go down well with the viewers. The question which read, “Which of these rulers was the contemporary of Mughal emperor Aurangazeb?” Followed by Maharana Pratap, Rana Sanga, Maharaj Ranjit Singh and Shivaji in the options.
According to the viewers, the makers disrespected the great warrior by not addressing him inappropriately. This great Indian warrior in history is addressed as Chhatrapati Shivaji and makers failed to do so. This led to many netizens to slam the GEC. Hence, the makers ran a ticker apologizing for their mistake during their Thursday’s episode, further also taking to their respective social media platforms to offer their apologies. The apology post was accompanied by the video clip, carrying the ticker.

Sony Television’s apology posted on social media reads, “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 have carried a scroll expressing regret during our episode yesterday. @amitabhbachchan @001danishkhan #KBC11”
As per reports in Indianexpress.com a source close to the makers was quoted saying, “It was a human error. The makers understand and accept the same. And this is the reason the apology was aired on Thursday’s episode. The channel did not intend to hurt any sentiments and hopes the public accepts its apology.”
