KBC 11: Sonakshi Sinha Fails To Answer Question From Ramayana (Pic courtesy: Twitter/SonyTV)
Kaun Banega Crorepati Episode 25 was all about laughter and glamour as Sonakshi Sinha graced the hot seat with contestant entrepreneur Ruma Devi.
Ruma Devi, who works as an NGO named Gramin Vikas Chetna Sansthan in Rajasthan went home with a prize of Rs. 12, 50,000.
Although the actress and the social worker managed to reach the third stage and grab big prize money, one apparently easy question made them use a lifeline, raising several eyebrows on her ignorance about Indian mythology.
The question that made Sonakshi and Ruma confused was' Hanuman fetched the Sanjeevani herb for whom?'
Netizens, however, couldn't stop but react to the situation and in no time Sonakshi started trending on Twitter. Memes started flooding the social media platform, most tagging her as new 'Dumbness Queen'.
Here are some of the tweets
Sonakshi sinha's father is four brothers:— Nikunj (@NBhikadia) September 20, 2019
Her brother's name is Luv & Kush
Her house name is 'Ramayana'

Sonakshi Sinha in other parts of the episode described Ruma Devi as a "shining example of what women can achieve" and that she is a source of inspiration for women across the country. On a lighter note, when the show's host Big B asked Ruma Devi is she enjoys watching movies, she said that does and that Amitabh Bachchan's Sooryavansham and Son of Sardaar, featuring Sonakshi Sinha, are some of her favourite films.
Ruma Devi has been constantly working towards promoting traditional Indian handicrafts as a part of which, she has provided employment to over 22,000 women in her area. She is the recipient of several awards and accolades. Before Ruma Devi occupied the hot seat, Akash Kushwaha from Uttar Pradesh played the game. Aakash was yesterday's roll over contestant, who decided to quit the game after the 10th question and went home with a prize of Rs. 1,60,000.
Sonakshi was last seen in Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal. She will next be seen in Salman Khan's Dabangg 3.
