“Why Not Sanskrit?” Denying Hindi as the national language is denying the Constitution: Kangana Ranaut
If You Deny Hindi You Deny Constitution’
Kangana Ranaut has extended support to Ajay Devgn, as she weighed in on the language row during the trailer launch of her upcoming movie, ‘Dhaakad’.
The actor was responding to Ajay Devgn’s comments that “Hindi was, is and will always be our national language”, a remark that he made to counter South star Kichcha Sudeep’s comments that Hindi was no longer the national language.
When asked about the Twitter argument between Devgn and Sudeep that sparked a major controversy, the usually combative Kangana Ranaut tried to balance her response.
Speaking at the trailer launch of her film “Dhaakad”, The 35-year-old actor said while she stands by the Bollywood star’s comments, she believes Sanskrit should be the national language of India as it is one of the oldest languages.
“Hindi is our national language. So, when Ajay Devgn ji said that Hindi is the national language of India, he was not wrong. If this is the only sense you make of what I mean to say, then that is your mistake. If someone tells me that Kannada is older than Hindi, and so is Tamil, then they are also not wrong.
