Kaun Banega Crorepati 11: Fans upset over wrong reference of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj; makers issue ap – Times of India
The Wednesday episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati (November 6) featured a question, where Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s name in the option was only shown as Shivaji.
This particular wrong portrayal of the Maratha ruler’s name offended netizens. The question that was asked: Which of these rulers was the contemporary of Mughal emperor Aurangazeb?
And the options were – Maharana Pratap, Rana Sanga, Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Shivaji.
Big B, the host of the show too addressed him as Shivaji.
The channel issued a note rectifying this with the caption: 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.
