On Friday, actress Kangana Ranaut remarked that while Ajay Devgn is correct in claiming that Hindi is our national language, everyone has the right to be proud of their own language and culture.
The actor was replying to Devgn’s statement that “Hindi was, is, and always will be our national language,” which he made in response to South star Kichcha Sudeep’s assertion that Hindi was no longer the national language.
When questioned about the Twitter feud between Devgn and Sudeep, Ranaut, who is known for her aggressive nature, tried to strike a balance in her response.
While she stands by the Bollywood star’s statements, the 35-year-old actor feels Sanskrit should be India’s national language because it is one of the oldest languages, she said at the trailer launch of her film “Dhaakad.”
“Hindi is India’s national language.” As a result, when Ajay Devgn ji said that Hindi is India’s national language, he was correct. You’ve made a mistake if this is the only interpretation you have of what I’m trying to say. They are both true if they say Kannada is older than Hindi or Tamil is older than Hindi.
India lacks a national language, and Hindi and Kannada are two of the 22 languages included in the Constitution’s eighth schedule. The official languages are Hindi and English.
According to Ranaut, denying Hindi as the national language is a denial of the central government and the Constitution.
Fortunately or sadly, English has become that link when it should be Hindi, Ranaut pointed out, no matter how horrible the colonial history is.
Ranaut stated that there is no clear answer to the language dispute because India is a diverse country with many languages and customs.
Devgn’s remarks triggered a controversy about the imposition of Hindi, with BJP Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, NC’s Omar Abdullah, Congress’ Siddaramaiah, and JD-S’ H D Kumaraswamy all supporting India’s linguistic plurality.
