Telugu heroes using Telangana slang for hits: KCR

Telangana CM KCR who announced a chunk of jobs for the unemployed youth in the state, made interesting comments on Telugu cinema and Tollywood heroes. In the Assembly KCR added that the separate statehood was achieved based on three prime reasons and they are water, financial resources and employment (Neellu, Nidhulu, Niyamakalu).

“During the agitation, the above three were our prime agenda and simultaneously we have also worked on Telangana culture, traditions and language. We have conserved Telangana language and brought recognition to it. Now Telangana language is being widely used in Telugu cinema and heroes are getting hits because of it,” said KCR.

This was not the case earlier. “Telangana language was humiliated in Telugu films and people who used the language were shown as jokers in films,” added KCR.

These comments suggest that KCR seems to have knowledge of recent Telugu films and probably he might have watched a couple of films that had Telangana flavour.

Also KCR’s comments are partially true and partially not. Not all films are using Telangana dialect and it is being highly dependent on the backdrop of the film and most films use the language that is reachable and understandable to the common audiences.
