Rajinikanth who met the press at Chennai Airport said that the idea of a common language, unfortunately, is not possible in India.
A common language not just for India but any country is good for its unity and progress. Unfortunately, (one cannot) bring a common language in our country. So you cannot impose any language,” Rajinikanth told reporters in Tamil at the airport in Chennai.
“Especially, if you impose Hindi, not just Tamil Nadu, no southern state will accept that. Many states in northern parts will also not accept that,” he added.
Earlier, actor-politician Kamal Haasan also spoke against Hindi imposition.
“Unity in diversity is a promise we made when India became a republic. Now no Shah, Sultan or Samrat should renege on that promises,” he had said through a video recently.
