After Twitter users slammed Sony TV’s Kaun Banega Crorepati for missing the title ‘Chhatrapti Maharaj’ while mentioning Shivaji in the latest episode, Sony TV has apologised for the same.
The channel took to social media to release an apology 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 have carried a scroll expressing regret during our episode yesterday. #KBC11”
The hashtag #BoycottKBCSonyTV was trending on Twitter after the episode aired, as internet users asked why was the title ‘Chhatrapati Maharaj’ not prefixed to Shivaji.
The question asked to the participant was, “Which of these rulers was the contemporary of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb?” and the four options for it were Maharana Pratap, Rana Sanga, Maharaj Ranjit Singh and Shivaji.
