Ajay Devgan and Kichcha Sudeep were recently involved in a Twitter debate about the latter’s remarks about South Indian movies being dubbed in Hindi. Furthermore, Ajay Devgan stated that Hindi is the country’s national language. However, there are no prescribed national languages but rather 22 official languages of the country.
Moreover, Twitter was quick to react to the Tweets made by both the actors
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

Hindi was never & will never be our National Language.
It is the duty of every Indian to respect linguistic diversity of our Country.
Each language has its own rich history for its people to be proud of.

When will the Hindi-speaking population understand that India does not have a national language? Hindi and English are the two official languages which the govt uses, but THERE IS NO NATIONAL LANGUAGE! #stopHindiImposition https://t.co/M6Ng2BSyYU

There are 19,500 mother tongues spoken in India.
Our love for India feels the same in every language.
As a proud Kannadiga and a proud Congressman let me remind everyone that Congress created linguistic states so that no one language dominates another.#UnityInDiversity

Actor @KicchaSudeep saying that Hindi is not a National Language is correct. There is nothing to find fault in his statement. Actor @ajaydevgn is not only hyper in nature but also shows his ludicrous behaviour. 1/7

#AjayDevgn has never typed a full tweet in hindi since past 1 year or so and chose to reply in Hindi for a Kannada actor. It was a befitting reply from #KicchaSudeep saying what would the situation be if he had replied in Kannada.#HindiIsNotNationalLanguage #stopHindiImposition
