Kaun Banega Crorepati and Amitabh Bachchan Landed in trouble after asking a controversial question to the participants in a weekend episode. The show had social activist Bezwada Wilson and actor Anoop Soni as guest participants.
The problem started after Amitabh Bachchan asked a question related to Manusmirti in the Karamveer episode. After answering the question, Amitabh Bachchan also said that “In 1927,
Dr. BR Ambedkar condemned the ancient Hindu text Manusmriti to ideologically justify caste discrimination and untouchability and he also burned copies of it.”
After the episode was aired social media took up the issue accusing the show of running the “leftists propaganda”, while others blamed it for “hurting Hindu sentiments”. An FIR was also lodged against Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) and its host Amitabh Bachchan in Lucknow.
Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri also tweeted, “KBC has been hijacked by Commies. Innocent kids, learn this is how culture wars are won. It’s called coding.”
