No- Hindi is not our national language. @ajaydevgn Your ignorance is baffling. And it’s great that films like KGF Pushpa and RRR have done so well in the Hindi belt- art has no language barrier.
Please enjoy our films as much as we enjoy yours- #stopHindiImposition https://t.co/60F6AyFeW3

Respected @ajaydevgn ji, Many hollywood movies are dubbed in Hindi. Hope you don’t think Hindi is the Matrubhasha and Rashtriya Bhasha of America.
For 60crore proud Indians,Hindi hamari matrubhasha kabhi nahi thi, aur rashtrabhasha banegi bhi nahi.

Hindi is NOT THE NATIONAL language of India, it is an “Official Language”. You need to be responsible about what you put out. Also @ajaydevgn – you reside in Mumbai & it is an insult to Maharashtra if you term one language as our national language over others including Marathi! https://t.co/GAnuHJSKOk

Dear Bengali sister @itsKajolD, your husband @ajaydevgn is illiterate about Indian Constitution. Tell him that Hindi is regional language of BIMARU belt. Tell him that India has no National language. Bengalis died for language rights in 1952, 1961, 1971. Its ur duty as a Bengali. pic.twitter.com/kFTniQWYjH

Okay, we need to get this right! This is so so basic. India has no national language, for god’s sake.
Hindi isn’t our national language. Please stop with this WhatsApp University knowledge.

Today’s lesson: If you eat Pan Masala then you will have poor general knowledge. You will think Hindi is our national language. #ajaydevgan

Ironic how Bollywood biggies thriving on Hindi remakes of Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada hits, are now crying foul when original South Indian movies are breaking records nationwide. It’s not the language, it’s the Originality! @BeingSalmanKhan @ajaydevgn @KicchaSudeep

Sir. Hindi is not and never will be our national language. South Indian production houses release their movie in Hindi because it is just another regional language. Just like tamil or Telugu .

For the unversed, it all started due to a speech delivered by Kichcha Sudeepa in a movie’s trailer launch. Bollywood actor Ajay Devgan confronted South Indian actor Kichcha Sudeepa over his comment on Hindi not being the national language of India. Ajay questioned Sudeep why he is dubbing the films of his language to Hindi if he feels Hindi is not the national language of India. He also made a strong statement saying that Hindi was, is and will be the national language of the country.
Kichcha Sudeepa, at the trailer launch of a film said, “Someone said Pan India Film was made in Kannada. I would like to make a small correction. Hindi is no more the national language of India. They are doing Pan India films today. They are struggling by dubbing in Telugu and Tamil and not achieving the success. Today we are making films that reach everywhere” the senior actor said.
Kannada Actor @KicchaSudeep said ,”correct it,Hindi is no more the National Language, its no more a National language”!
In a film launch & a huge applause from the crowd & the media.
