On Friday, Kangana Ranaut unveiled the trailer for her upcoming flick Dhaakad. Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta, and the film's director Razneesh Ghai were also in attendance at the event in Mumbai. Kangana Ranaut was asked about the Hindi language issue that erupted following a recent Twitter debate between Ajay Devgn and Kichcha Sudeep by the press. Kangana stated that she does not have a clear answer to this question, however she did comment on her thoughts on the subject.
Kangana Ranaut responded to the heated controversy by stating that India is a diverse country. She said, “We (system and society) are a country of a lot of diversities, languages, and cultures. And it is our birthright to feel proud of our respective culture and language. I am a Pahadi. However, when we consider our nation, in order to make it one unit, we need a thread to connect all of us together. When the constitution was made, Hindi became a national language.”
“And now when you say Tamil is actually older than Hindi, it should be noted that Sanskrit is older than that. In my opinion, Sanskrit should be our national language, because Kannada, Tamil, Gujarati, Hindi, all these languages originated from Sanskrit,” she added.
Kangana also talked on how the English language brings people from all over the world together. “When you go abroad, the German, Spanish, French - they are very proud of their language. But no matter how dark the colonial history is, fortunately, or unfortunately, English has become that link,” said the Thalaivi (2021) actress.
