When Kiccha Sudeep spoke at the launch of RGV’s gangster film about pan-Indian film in the backdrop of the massive success of the KGF franchise, his comments about Hindi no longer being the national language not only ignited that debate yet again, but also got Bollywood star Ajay Devgn to respond. In a tweet earlier today, Ajay wrote, “@KicchaSudeep, brother, if Hindi is not our national language according to you, then why do you release films made in your mother tongue dubbed in Hindi? Hindi is our mother tongue, and our national language, and it will always be. Jana Gana Mana.”
Responding to Ajay, Sudeep wrote, “Hello @ajaydevgn sir.. the context to why i said tat line is entirely different to the way I guess it has reached you. Probably wil emphasis on why the statement was made when I see you in person. It wasn’t to hurt,Provoke or to start any debate. Why would I sir 😁I love and respect every language of our country sir. I would want this topic to rest,,, as I said the line in a totally different context. Mch luv and wshs to you always. Hoping to seeing you soon. 🥳🥂🤜🏻🤛🏻.”
Incidentally, Ajay had tweeted in Hindi, which Sudeep alluded to in his parting shot, ““And sir @ajaydevgn, I did understand the txt you sent in hindi. Tats only coz we all have respected,loved and learnt hindi. No offense sir, but was wondering what’d the situation be if my response was typed in kannada.!! Don’t we too belong to India sir. 🥂”
Sudeep’s fans, meanwhile, were less than amused with Ajay’s tweet, responding with #WeStandWithKicchaSudeep and tagging the Bollywood actor in videos of his films that were remakes of the Kannada star’s films. They not only schooled him about Hindi only being one of many official languages in India, but also trolled him for his continued endorsement of tobacco products.
Ajay later replied, “Hi @KicchaSudeep, You are a friend. thanks for clearing up the misunderstanding. I’ve always thought of the film industry as one. We respect all languages and we expect everyone to respect our language as well. Perhaps, something was lost in translation 🙏”, to which Sudeep again responded, “Translation & interpretations are perspectives sir. Tats the reason not reacting wothout knowing the complete matter,,,matters.:) I don't blame you @ajaydevgn sir. Perhaps it would have been a happy moment if i had received a tweet from u for a creative reason. Luv&Regards❤️.
