If you write anything in Hindi with English letters and if the note reaches Amitabh Bachchan, he will return it to you. Amitabh Bachchan has admitted that he then politely asks the person to write it out in Devnagari script.
Asked if the new generation of Hindi film actors are using lesser Hindi and are becoming highly Westernised, Amitabh said at the launch of Kaun Banega Crorepati in Mumbai on Tuesday, “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,” he added.
Asked about the most used language in the Bachchan household, the actor said: “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.”
