Shatrughan Sinha had earlier defended his daughter Sonakshi Sinha after Mukesh Khanna had questioned her knowledge on mythology!
It was a few days back when the Veteran actor Mukesh Khanna had taken a dig at the actress Sonakshi Sinha. Mentioning how the re-telecast of Ramayan will help people like her, he had questioned the actress’ knowledge on mythology.
Later, Sonakshi’s father, Shatrughan Sinha had lashed out at Mr Khanna, adding that he is proud of his daughter. Now the Shaktimaan actor has come out defending himself as he told TOI, “People have blown my comment out of proportion and presented it wrongly to Shatruji. I have known him for long and have immense respect for him. I took Sonakshi’s name as a mere example.”
He also said, “It does not mean I was trying to demean her or question her knowledge. My intention was not to target her. However, I am shocked to see how the current generation is not aware of many things.”
Adding further to his explanation, Mukesh said, “Recently, I was watching a video in which an IT student didn’t know whose maternal uncle Kans was. Someone even answered ‘Duryodhan’ to that question.” He said that he’s not claiming to be the guardian of Ramayan and Hindu literature. But as a citizen of India, he feels that it is our duty to introduce our literature and history to today’s generation. Because they are more interested in TikTok and Harry Potter.
