Ajay Devgn and Kichcha Sudeepa have a disagreement about Hindi as a national language.

Bollywood stars dispute: The dispute over Hindi being India’s national language has been revived by an online dialogue between two Indian actors from different film industries.

Bollywood star Ajay Devgn tweeted to Kannada actress Kichcha Sudeepa, “Hindi will always be India’s native tongue and national language.”

People in southern India, where the language is hardly spoken, have reacted angrily to the remark. One of India’s 22 official languages is Hindi. However, the language has been the subject of heated debate since Home Minister Amit Shah introduced it as an alternative to English earlier this month.

While Hindi is widely spoken in India’s northern heartland, states in the country’s eastern and southern regions speak a diversity of languages. Sudeepa, who works in the southern film business, recently commented on the recent pan-India success of films from the region, claiming that Hindi was no longer “a national language” at a recent event.

Since theaters reopened this year, films in southern Indian languages such as KGF: Chapter 2, RRR, and Pushpa have been tremendous successes.

This is remarkable because Bollywood’s Hindi-language films normally dominate the Indian box office. “Today, we’re making films that are seen all over the world,” Sudeepa remarked, adding that Bollywood films were fighting for success. “My brother, if Hindi is not our national language according to you, then why do you dub movies in your mother tongue into Hindi?” Devgn responded on Twitter.

Sudeepa retorted that his remark had been taken out of context and that he had not intended to start a controversy.

“I’ve always thought of the film industry as one. We respect all languages and we expect everyone to respect our language as well,” Devgn said.
