The former Karnataka CM made quite a stir in twitter by responding to the actor’s tweet on Hindi Language. The chain of tweet exchange started with Sudeep Sanjeev‘s statement on the Hindi Language at the trailer launch event.
Sudeep Sanjeev reportedly made a statement on Hindi Language at a media event. He was asked at the trailer launch of the movie, “R: The deadliest Gangster ever” about the pan india reach the film created, to which he responded that “everyone says that a Kannada film was made on a pan-India level but a small correction is that Hindi is not a national language anymore.”
He also takes a dig at the Bollywood film industry pointing out that many films of Bollywood are released in Telegu and Tamil but the reach is not the same. This comes in reference to the blockbuster hits of the recently release KGF; chapter 2 and RRR.
In response to Sudeep’s comment, Ajay Devgn asked him if hindi is not a national language anymore then why is south Indian films dubbed in Hindi versions. He wrote in his social media handle, “@kicchaSudeep my brother, according to you if Hindi is not our national language then why do you release your mother tongue movies by dubbing them in Hindi? Hindi was, is and always will be our mother tongue and national language. Jan Gan Man.”
Sudeep then clarified his statements that he made earlier, and tweeted back to Ajay Devgn that he meant no harm and disrespect rather it was mis interpretated.
Later, the former karnataka CM also responded to the tweet. The former Karnataka CM backlashed on actor for his hindi language comment on the social media handle.

Amidst the tweet exchange between the two actors, the former Chief Minister of Karnataka reacted strongly to Ajay Devgn’s tweet. He said, “Hindi was never and will never be our National Language. It is the duty of every Indian to respect linguistic diversity of our country.”
This debate was ignited by Amit Shah’s recent statement on making Hindi as an alternate language to English. This decision was highly criticised by many opposition parties.
