Citing the recently released Kannada blockbuster “K.G.F: Chapter 2“, which has scored tremendous hits in North India as well, Mr Varma said Bollywood actors are “insecure and jealous” of their southern counterparts.

In a Twitter post, Mr. Varma, who has directed Bollywood films like Company and Sarkar, said, “The base undeniable ground truth is that the north stars are insecure and jealous of the south stars because a Kannada dubbing film KGF2 had a 50 crore opening day and we all are going to see how the coming Hindi release days will be.”

Director Sudeep Sanjeev also supported Kannada actor Sudeep Sanjeev’s remark that Hindi is not the national language.

The Bollywood actor’s statement that Hindi was, is, and will always be our mother tongue and national language has sparked intense criticism from the south, with at least two former Karnataka Chief Ministers slamming his remarks.

At the trailer launch of his film, Mr. Devgn responded to Kannada actor Sudeep Sanjeev’s remarks.

Taking a shot at the Hindi film industry, he said that Bollywood produces many films that are released in Telugu and Tamil but struggle to find the same level of success.

He said that today we are making films that are going everywhere.

Ajay Devgn responded to the comment on Twitter by asking the Kannada actor why he releases Hindi-dubbed versions of films made in his mother tongue.

‘@KicchaSudeep my brother, if Hindi is not our national language, then why are you dubbing your mother tongue films in Hindi? Hindi was, is, and will always be our mother tongue and national language,” he tweeted in Hindi.

Mr. Sudeep then responded to Mr. Devgn’s counter, claiming he made the remark in a different context than how it reached him, and that it wasn’t to “hurt, provoke, or start a debate”. Announcing his apology, the Kannada actor said that he “loves and respects” every language in our country and that he hopes to see him soon.

The actors’ tweets, however, reignited the debate over Hindi imposition.

Recently, several south Indian movies have achieved unprecedented success at the box office not only in the south but throughout the country, leading to a lot of debate on why Hindi language movies aren’t as popular in the south.
