Speaking at the event Chiranjeevi had said that “Telangana CM KCR is working hard to revive the Telugu language.” He had spoken about the importance of language and said that “everyone should speak Telugu as it is mother tongue.” He added that “we don’t why Telugu people don’t speak Telugu language and I am ensuring that all my grandsons and granddaughters speak in Telugu”.
During his speech, Chiru also narrated the incident when he apologized to KTR. “When KTR invited me for this event, I immediately agreed to attend. During our conversation, I congratulated him on winning a prestigious award recently. To that, he said, Anna..(Brother), how pertinent it is to wish me in ‘English’ when I came to invite you for ‘Telugu’ mahasabhalu. Although he just joked, I realized that we knowingly or unknowingly neglect our mother tongue. I apologized to him then and there.
How heartening it will be to talk in pure Telugu instead of English or any other convoluted language when two Telugu persons meet. I wish every Telugu person strive for the preservation of our language,” the Megastar concluded his speech.
