From Randeep Hooda to Ajay Devgn, several celebrities on Saturday extended their wishes on the occasion of 'Hindi Diwas'.
Stating that 'language can be a great unifier', Randeep wished fans on the occasion"Language can be a great unifier. To celebrate #HindiDiwas is to also recognise the richness and diversity of our rainbow nation in all its glory. Let's learn more indigenous languages too," he tweeted.
बुरा जो देखन मैं चलया, बुरा ना मिलया कोय।
जो दिल खोजा अपना, मुझसे बुरा ना कोय।। #हिंदी_दिवस Language can be a great unifier. To celebrate #HindiDiwas is to also recognise the richness and diversity of our rainbow nation in all its glory.Lets learn more indigenous languages too🙏🏽
Producer Bhushan Kumar also wished on the occasion alongside a clip that read, "The country that doesn't take pride in its language and literature can never progress- Dr. Rajendra Prasad".
Actor Ajay too greeted fans on the occasion. Hindi is spoken as a native language by around 258 million people and is recognised as the fourth largest language in the world. Hindi got its name from the Persian word Hind, meaning 'Land of the Indus River'.
'Hindi Diwas` marks the significance of the day when the Constituent Assembly of India first adopted the Hindi language as the official language of India.
