One of the Bollywood actors who has a great command over the Hindi language is Amitabh Bachchan. While there are very few actors who speak the language fluently, Mr. Bachchan makes it a point to converse in Hindi with the contestants who grace his television show, Kaun Banega Crorepati. The 10th season of the show will kick start on the 3rd of September, and at the press conference, Mr. Bachchan urged the recent lot of actors to speak more Hindi and not get westernized.
Yes, I agree with that observation. In fact, these days when I get anything that is written in Roman Hindi, I return it to the person and ask him/ her to write it in Devanagri script. When it comes to the show KBC, I am not trying to force anything upon anyone but the language of the show is Hindi, so I speak in Hindi. If that inspires the young generation to speak in Hindi more, it is good.
Talking about our household, we speak in a universal language. We speak in Hindi and English both. Some of the family members are from north India, some from the southern land and some from West Bengal as well, so if you come to our house, we appreciate Punjabi, Hindi, Bengali and every other language.
We are really glad that Mr. Bachchan, who is a global icon is giving Hindi so much importance.
