Actor Ajay Devgn, who is currently busy promoting his upcoming film ‘Runway 34’, took to social media to share his thoughts on a comment made by actor Kannada star Kiccha Sudeep at a press event. The Twitter exchange between the two actors has gone on to become a debate and is trending on social media. 

It all started when Sudeep was asked at an event about the south films doing great business all over India. Among other things, Sudeep had said, “Correct it, Hindi is no more the National Language, it’s no more a National language (sic).”

Reacting to this Devgn went on to tweet in Hindi.

Sudeep in return didn’t lash out and just tried to explain to Devgn that the words he had said were taken out of context and lost in translation till the time they reached him.

After seeing Sudeep’s response and clarification, Devgn wrote back. He followed his tweet with the folded hands emoji, signifying a gesture of an apology.

Sudeep reverted and acknowledged the gesture.

After this Twitter exchange, lots of fans have started talking about this north India – south India language divide. Fans have been trending this topic on social media and have made it go to the top of the trending charts.

Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has also given his piece of mind on the same. 

Devgn’s ‘Runway 34’ releases in theatres tomorrow (April 29). At the same time, ‘KGF: Chapter 2’, starring Yash, has been reigning at the box-office with almost Rs 1000 Crore at the box-office. The same happened recently with filmmaker SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ starring Ram Charan and Jr NTR. The film is still running at a few outlets, with overall earnings of more than Rs 1100 Crore at the box-office.
