Allegedly Disrespectful Reference To Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaja On KBC

An unintentional slight to  the great Maratha warrior  Chhatrapati  Shivaji Maharaj has triggered off an outrage  and protest  on social media with   ‘Boycott KBC’ trending  on  Twitter.

The  Kaun Banega Crorepati  team  , in a state  of shock, doesn’t know what  hit them.

 The  offending question aired on  Wednesday   6  November, referred  to Chhatrapati  Shivaji Maharaj as ‘Shivaji’ alone, eventuating in  allegations of disrespect. The  Channel  Sony Entertainment has issued a public apology. But it doesn’t seem  to have  assuaged the offended sections .

Sensing serious trouble Sony will now  play a ticker during the show  expressing regret  over the error.

While the show’s host Amitabh Bachchan remained  unavailable  for  comment a source  close to him says he  had  nothing to with  the error.

“He  reads  out the questions  from a  ready script.He has nothing to do with how  the  questions are  framed,” says  the  source.

Sony  now intends  to undertake  a process  of second-level scrutiny  of  all the  questions  asked  on the  show, in order to avoid such mistakes  in future.
