"Nindu Hesaru Enu?" (What is your name?) "Nanige Milkshake Thumba
Istha." (I like milkshake very much.) "Nanige Abhishek Thumba
Istha." (I like Abhishek very much.) Do you think that these are
the words uttered by Non-Kannada speaker? Yes! These are words of
Abhishek Bachchan. This is really a great matter of pride for us.
But, the unfortunate thing is that these are words taught by a
Kannada babe and she is none other than Bollywood actress Deepika
Padukone. She taught Aishwarya Rai's hubby Abhishek Bachchan a few
Kannada words during the promotion of her movie Karthik Calling
Karthik with her co-star Farhan Akthar. It is difficult to
tell whether to cry or feel proud of her for teaching them.
Several non-Kannada actresses like Pooja Gandhi, Parvathi Menon,
Bieanka Desai, Priyanka Upendra, Malashree, Julie Lakshmi, Suhasini
and Saritha speak Kannada very fluently like a born Kannadiga. They
feel proud to be a Kannadiga. But why Kannada babes are forgetting
Deepika belongs to the category of Kannadiga actress those who
are forgetting their mother tongue. She is born and brought up in
Karnataka. And she started her career with the Kannada movie
Aishwarya. Now she is making waves in Bollywood film
Why did she teach Abhi Kannada wrongly? Has she forgotten her
mother tongue? Or does she think that being Bollywood sensation, it
is below her dignity to identify herself as a Kannada babe?
Whatever may be the reason, she should not forget that her parents,
kith and kins are Kannadigas and Kannada film is her stepping stone
to become B-Town Queen.
