Ajay Devgn responded to fellow actor Kiccha Sudeep’s recent comment about the Hindi language. He took to Twitter to share a message written entirely in Hindi.

Ajay Devgn responded to Sudeep

The Runway 34 actor’s response comes days after Kiccha Sudeep, said “Hindi is no more a national language” and opined that Bollywood is stumbling to find success in the South Indian film industry while dubbing their films in Telugu and Tamil.


Ajay tagged Kiccha in his tweet, which was written completely in Hindi. “My brother, if according to you Hindi is not our national language then why do you release your movies in your mother tongue by dubbing them in Hindi? Hindi was, is, and always will be our mother tongue and national language. Jan Gan Man,” Ajay wrote.

Kiccha Sudeep’s reply

In reply, the Sandalwood actor feels that his comments were taken in an entirely different way. He tweeted, “Hello @ajaydevgn sir.. the context to why I said that line is entirely different to the way I guess it has reached you. Probably will emphasize 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. Much luv and wishes to you always. Hoping to see you soon,” he adds.


It is also relevant to note that Sudeep’s comments come days after Union Home Minister Amit Shah claimed that Hindi should be accepted as an alternative to English and not to local languages. His comments had drawn the anger of several opposition party leaders as they accused Shah of imposing the language forcefully.

This is very rare that Ajay has openly spoken against another person on social media. In a recent interview, Ajay spoke about why celebrities seldom speak their minds in public. “There are so many things that happen in the country, we chose to speak and we chose not to speak because they are taken very differently and if you are trying to be honest about something then it can be taken differently. There’ll be a section who’ll be with you and another big chunk of people who’ll not be with you and you have a fear of that,” he said.
