Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah: After Opposition From Raj Thackeray’s MNS Over Calling HINDI Mumbai’s Language, Producer Issues A Statement
One of television’s most popular shows Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Shashmah landed in a row after a dialogue from a recent episode, ‘Hindi is the language of Mumbai.’  Netizens, and MNS opposed the same, and demanded an apology from the makers. Ameya Khopkar warned the makers of TMKOC stating that they are promoting such a propaganda despite knowing Marathi is Mumbai’s main language. He also mentioned in his tweet that these ‘Gujarati insects’ must be stopped, and that Maharastrian actors, part of the show should be ashamed to support a statement like this.

Now, the producer Asit Modi has issued a statement saying that there is no doubt that in Mumbai Marathi is the main language. He further wrote that he repects all the languages. His tweet read, “मुंबई महाराष्ट्र में है और हमारे महाराष्ट्र की राजभाषा भाषा मराठी ही है. इस में कोई डाउट नहीं है. मैं भारतीय हूँ . महाराष्ट्रियन हूँ और गुजराती भी हूँ. सारी भारतीय भाषाओं का सम्मान करता हूँ. जय हिन्द." Apart from this, last night’s episode also sired a part clarifying about the same. Sharing the video, he also retweeted, “The only thing we believe in spreading love and happiness! We apologize if we have hurted any sentiments through our show. We believe in unity in diversity & respect for each and every religion and its mother tongue. Keep smiling & keep watching #TMKOC!."

The controversial dialogue about Hindi being Mumbai’s most common language aired in a previous episode where Bapu Ji asks everyone to use Hindi to settle a dispute about writing Suvichar on the board. He stated that they’re in Mumbai, and should use Hindi, which can be understood by all.


MNS General Secretary Shalini Thackeray also criticized the makers and mentioned  Marathi ‘suvichar’ below their ears, referring to a slap.
