Hindi will always be our national language, Ajay Devgn said during a Twitter spat with Kiccha Sudeep. The internet, soon after, trolled Ajay Devgn and fact-checked him.

Ajay Devgn found himself at the receiving end of social media anger after stating that Hindi “was, is, and will always be our national language” during a conversation with Kannada actor Kiccha Sudeep on Twitter on Wednesday. The 53-year-old actor was trolled as the internet fact-checked his statement soon after - there is no national language for India. Hindi, in fact, is India's most used language and is part of the 22 languages listed in the Indian Constitution's eighth schedule.

It all started after Kiccha Sudeep said in an exclusive interview with Karnataka Tak recently that Hindi is not a national language anymore. While a certain section of the internet lashed out at the Kannada actor, Ajay Devgn, slightly late though, responded to Sudeep in a tweet in Hindi where he claimed the aforementioned.

Ajay’s tweet, translated from Hindi to English, reads, "Kiccha Sudeep, my brother, according to you, if Hindi is not our national language then why do you release your native language [mother tongue] films by dubbing them in Hindi? Hindi was, is and always will be our mother tongue and national language. Jan Gan Man."

More on this story later because the internet, as unforgiving as it is, is busy lashing out at Ajay at the moment. With slight undertones of sarcasm, most users advised Ajay to do what his Twitter bio suggests: “I talk more in movies than in real life.” Others opted to help him with a GK lesson.
