Actor Gulshan Devaiah defends  Jr NTR being criticized by netizens for his accent; Know more here!

SS Rajamouli's RRR marked the victory in the Best Original Song of the year category at the 80th edition of the Golden Globe Awards. The song, Naatu Naatu, was composed by music director MM Keeravaani and penned by Kala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj. It is picturized on Ram Charan and Jr NTR, who are seen dancing. On the red carpet Jr NTR talked about his film and said, "We thought, taking Rajamouli's track record into consideration, we definitely thought we had a winner. But this was something more than a winner in Japan and today, America… come on, you don't expect this to happen." Meanwhile, many people took to social media and criticized his accent at the red carpet interview. Actor Gulshan Devaiah supported Jr NTR after many people criticized his accent on social media platforms at the Golden Globes red carpet.


Actor Gulshan Devaiah shared his opinion and responded to criticism of actor Jr NTR's accent:-

Gulshan Devaiah wrote, on Twitter, "I think NTR's accent is firstly not as bad as people are making it out to be, secondly it's a calculated PR strategy. Take it easy..let him try to spread his wings & fly. It's good for Indian cinema if he breaks through the Hollywood global market. We all stand to gain from it."

He also tweeted in response to a journalist, "I think if NTR jr lived in the US, he'd sound exactly like how he sounded now because that's how HE would speak as a first gen immigrant. We all have relatives with even worse accents who've been living in the US for decades & yet we think we're experts on accents."

People criticizing Jr NTR's accent on Reddit:-

While reacting to the Jr NTR's accent, one person wrote on Reddit, "When an American comes to India, he isn't picking up Indian accent to talk to us. We figure it out, don't we? Why do we need to put up an accent for them?"

Another Reddit user said, "Oh, can't wait for the Oscars version." The comment is making fun of Jr NTR's accent, "aMERIca' Lol, it sounds like a weird mix of fake American and British accents."

One of the Twitter users wrote, "Kinda jarring because we know how he speaks normally. But yes, let him have his time under the spotlight."

Work front of the Jr NTR:-

Jr NTR will soon start shooting for his upcoming film, 'NTR30.' The film is directed by Koratala Siva of Janatha Garage and is slated to release on April 5, 2024. He will also work in NTR31, which Prashanth Neel will direct.
