India is a land of diverse languages and religions. And to preserve traditional local language and heritage, it is important to communicate in the regional language. It is truly said, “You may learn many languages but never forget your native language”. While most of the Indians can speak Hindi, some others struggle to communicate in our national language. When Hindi is a tough job for some, it is obvious that English would be a challenge for many. However, if we talk about Bollywood stars, then they are not recognized only within a country but globally as well. For them, it’s kind of important to be fluent in speaking languages like Hindi and English. Speaking fluent English is the first impressive act of any star. Right?? Well, some Bollywood stars chose to speak in Hindi or the regional language rather than any other language. Let’s have a look at such stars:
