The classic Ramayan television show is back on the screens amid lockdown and has been charting major TRPs and becoming a preferred source of entertainment across the country. The mythological drama is broadcasted on Doordarshan and the channel has been conducting some polls on their official Twitter handle to keep up the buzz. One of the polls takes an indirect dig on actress Sonakshi Sinha following Mukesh Khanna’s remark on the actress’s knowledge on Indian mythology that has been in controversy lately.
For the unversed, the Dabangg 3 actress who is often found on the receiving end of trolls had made a guest appearance on Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati where she failed to answer a question related to Ramayan. The actress has been at the receiving end of a lot of backlash from Mukesh Khanna and a few twitter users mainly because all her family members starting from father Shatrughan Sinha to her brothers, are named after the characters of the classic drama.
While a lot of actors starring in mythological television shows like Puneet Issar and Nitish Bharadwaj have come forward in her defense including her father, the veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha. But the recent poll conducted by Doordarshan National on Twitter has sparked the old news and is trending on Twitter coupled with a lot of memes on the same.
Here’s the tweet that was taken as a poll by Doordarshan.

As soon as the tweet was posted, many memes trolling Sonakshi Sinha went viral and started doing rounds on Twitter. Take a look at few of these tweets :

Two questions here:
1) Why is Shatrughan an option here 😅
2) Who are these 2% who have voted for him? 😬
