The mammoth success of Yash starrer KGF 2 at the box office worldwide, has left everyone shocked and surprised. The Prashanth Neel directorial is being immensely praised across the country, including many Bollywood biggies and south superstars. After RRR, KGF 2 success, Ram Charan took pride in saying that south cinema is being talked about throughout the country.

Reacting to KGF 2 being called a pan-India film, Kiccha said in the viral video, “You said that a pan India film was made in Kannada. I’d like to make a small correction. Hindi is no more a national language. They (Bollywood) are doing pan-India films today. They are struggling (to find success) by dubbing in Telugu and Tamil, but it’s not happening. Today we are making films that are going everywhere.” Also Read – Trending South News Today: Yash starrer KGF 2 enters Rs. 800 crore club, Kajal Aggarwal’s role chopped in Acharya and more
Ironically, during the promotions of his 2019 film Pailwaan, when Kiccha was asked why he was emphasising more on the Hindi version of the film compared to other languages, he had said, “That’s because Hindi is the national language. Everything started from here, hence it always holds more weightage. According to me, there is larger number of people who speak Hindi compared to other languages. Hence, we are giving more preference to the Hindi version.” Also Read – KGF 2 box office collection day 11: Yash starrer beats all Mohanlal, Mammootty, Dulquer Salmaan films; SMASHES new RECORD in Kerala

This debate is going on from a very long time about hindi being a national language or not. Lets have some true fact.
Accept it and goes on. Talk on fact, lets make “संस्कृत” as our national language, being d most oldest d widest language.

Hindi is not just a national language its an emotion for the country. Movie is hindi dubbed thats why movie it has so much fan following & if it wasn’t dubbed then i feel it would have been a normal film only with limited audience. #pleaserespectourcountrylanguage

It is so weird that people are trying to divide India and everyone is trying to bring their dominance. I live in Maharashtra and talk Marathi lang but we had to learn Hindi too. No one questioned about why we had to learn it and were happy to be able to talk with majority of ppl.
