NEW DELHI: Bollywood actor Sonakshi Sinha finally responded after she was being trolled for failing to answer a Ramayana-related question on Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) 11 on Friday.

The actor, who is currently in Maldives according to her social media post, took to Twitter to hit back at the trolls who have been questioning her wit. In the post, she mentioned that she doesn't remember the Pythagoras Theorem, Merchant of Venice, Periodic Table and Chronology of the Mughal Dynasty, among other things. She further encouraged them to make more trolls as she loves them.

During the 25th episode of KBC 11, the show actor-host Amitabh Bachchan asked the 32-year-old actor, who shared the hot-seat with Rajasthani artisan Ruma Devi: "According to Ramayana, Hanuman fetched the Sanjeevani herb for whom?" Sinha was seen visibly confused, and uses a lifeline.

Ever since, the netizens haven't been kind to her. #YoSonakshiSoDumb and #SonakshiSinha were few of the top trends on Twitter. Some even compared her to Alia Bhatt, who was brutally trolled a few years ago for calling politician Prithviraj Chavan the President of India during a quiz round of 'Koffee With Karan 4'.

During the show, even 75-year-old host could not stop himself from questioning the 'Noor' star, daughter of actor Shatrughan Sinha.

"Aapke pitaji ka naam hai Shatrughan, aap jis ghar me rehti hain, uska naam hai Ramayan. Aapke jitne chacha hain, wo sab Ramayan se sambandhit hain, Aapko ye nahi pata ki Lakshman ke liye laaye they jadibooti? (Your father's name is Shatrughan and you home is called Ramayan. Your uncles are all connected to the Ramayan. How do you not know that jadibooti was brought for?)"

Sonakshi replied: " Mujhe laga tha, lekin main inke liye bahut nervous thi to chance nahi lena chahti thi (I had a hunch about the right answer, but I was nervous and did not want to take any chance)."

In a tweet, Big B revealed that KBC became the No. 1 programme in the non fiction section this week.
