Mukesh Khanna doesn't mince his words. The actor, who is best known for his work in Mahabharat and Shaktimaan, has previously lashed out at Ekta Kapoor for the various versions of Ramayan and Mahabharat made on the small screen. However, this time around, he is unimpressed by Sonakshi Sinha. The renowned television actor has called out the Dabangg actress in a new interview. Mukesh was discussing the return of Ramayan and Mahabharat with Times of India when he lashed out Sonakshi. 

“I think the reruns will be useful to many who haven’t watched the show earlier. It will also help people like Sonakshi Sinha who have no knowledge about our mythological sagas. People like her don’t know who did lord Hanuman get Sanjivani for," he said. For the unversed, Sonakshi became the target of trolls last year when she couldn't answer the question: For whom Hanuman got Sanjeevani buti?

The question was posed to the actress when she appeared on Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepati. Sona was confused between the options presented to her. The options were, A- Sugreev, B- Laxman, C- Sita and D- Ram. Sonakshi resorted to a lifeline to answer the question. 

Meanwhile, speaking with Pinkvilla, Mukesh confessed he hadn't watched the Ramayan when it aired in the 1980s. "It is so lovely to see Ramayan. I was never interested in watching Ramayan. Ye toh maine galti se pehla dekha, dusra dekha, mujhe laga kya bana hai (I accidentally watched the first and second episode aired on Saturday and was impressed by it)," he said. 

Apart from Mahabharat, Mukesh's Shaktimaan has returned to the small screen as well. The actor is preparing for Shaktimaan 2 as well. Read all about it here: EXCLUSIVE: Mukesh Khanna CONFIRMS Shaktimaan 2 will made on a 'big scale'; Talks about Shaktimaan rerun

Anonymous : Sonakshi's brother name is Luv Khush, then how doesn't she know about for whom Hanuman Ji brought sanjeevni buti. She definitely knows about Ramayan. It was deliberate attempt to garner 2 minutes fame, when her films aren't getting success.
