Kangana Ranaut stated that while Ajay Devgn is correct in claiming that Hindi is our national language, everyone has the right to be proud of their own language and culture. She said, “We live in a country with many different ethnicities, languages, and cultures. It is also our right as citizens to be proud of our different cultures and languages. I am a Pahadi. When it comes to our country, we need a thread to tie us all together to make it one unit. Hindi was proclaimed a national language when the constitution was written.”

She added, “Now when you assert that Tamil is older than Hindi, keep in mind that Sanskrit is older than that. Sanskrit, in my opinion, should be our national language because Kannada, Tamil, Gujarati, and Hindi are all sprung from Sanskrit. If you ask me why Sanskrit wasn’t made our national language instead of Hindi, I don’t have an answer. Those choices would have been made at a specific point in time. This problem has a lot of levels to it. When it comes to language, you should be conscious of all of these layers. You are defying the constitution and the Delhi government when you deny Hindi.”

She continued, “As of now, according to the constitution, Hindi is the national language. As a result, Ajay Devgn Ji was correct when he stated that Hindi is India’s national language. However, I believe that Sanskrit should be our national language, as it is the source of languages such as Hindi, German, English, and French. Why isn’t Sanskrit the official language of India? Why isn’t it required in schools? I’m not aware of that!” The Union government of India uses English and Hindi as official languages. For official purposes, different states employ different languages.”
