Read to know what went wrong.

Sony TV on Friday issued an apology after the hit game show Kaun Banega Crorepati drew criticism over the manner in which it referenced the Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on Wednesday's episode. The omitting of his title "Chhatrapati" was compounded by the fact that options A, B and C were listed with their titles - Maharana Pratap, Maharana Ranjit Singh and Rana Sanga. And this is the reason the apology was aired on Thursday's episode. It wrote, "There was an inaccurate reference to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj during Wednesday's KBC episode, due to inadvertence".

In the recent episode, Amitabh asked a question about Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb to a contestant from Gujarat, Shaheda Chandran. This disrespectful reference to one of the great Indian warriors, Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj as Shivaji in the options created a great havoc on social media.

Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 has found itself in a controversy.

Sony TV's KBC is in its 11th edition and is hosted by Amitabh Bachchan. And within no time, #BoycottKBC started trending. "They have even compared the "Pride of Hindustan" with a leader who merely wanted to take over 'Hindustan". "What coming generation going to learn from this?" and "My respect for the show & the anchor has taken a huge dip when i see that the respectable #ChatrapatiShivajiMaharaj is denigrated by being called by first name only & the worst of all Mughal rules aurangzeb being ennobled with such respect". The channel apologized and expressed honest regret for the inaccurate reference made due to inadvertence.
