    National

    The dispute erupted after Sudeep responded to a query about KGF 2 being referred to be a pan-India film. He claimed that Hindi is no longer a national language and that Bollywood should claim to be making pan-India films (by dubbing their films in other languages).



    Digital Desk: Former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah responded to the Twitter discussion between Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn and Kannada actor Sudeep by saying Hindi was never and will never be India's National Language, which was the primary point of contention between Ajay Devgn and Sudeep, "I am proud to be a Kannadiga," the former CM wrote adding that it is the duty of every Indian to respect linguistic diversity of the country. "Each language has its own rich history for its people to be proud of," Siddaramaiah said.

    To this, Ajay Devgn reacted and said if Hindi is not the National Language, then why Kannada films are being dubbed in Hindi. "@KicchaSudeep my brother, according to you if Hindi is not our National Language, then why do you dub your mother tongue movies in Hindi and release them? Hindi was, is and always will be our mother tongue and national language. Jan Gan Man," Ajay Devgn tweeted in Hindi.

    Actor, Sudeep, responded to Ajay Devgn's Hindi tweet, saying what he meant was absolutely different and in a very different context, "Hello @ajaydevgn sir.. the context to why i said tat line is entirely different to the way I guess it has reached you. Probably wil emphasis 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. Mch luv and wshs to you always. Hoping to seeing you soon," actor Sudeep tweeted.


    The 'row' was put to rest after Ajay Devgn stated that he has always thought of the film business as a whole, and that something may have been lost in translation. Sudeep, an actor, stated that translations and translations are viewpoints, and that he would have been pleased to get a tweet from Ajay Devgn for "a creative reason."
