For the uninitiated, in the episode last night, Bapu Ji (Amit Bhatt) tells his son Jethalal (Dilip Joshi) and other residents of his society to use the Hindi language to end a dispute by writing a Suvichar on the board of society in a preferred language. He advises them that they are in Mumbai, therefore, they should use Hindi, which everyone can understand. Share if they had been in a different city, they would have used that particular language. Bapu Ji tells them that they could have solved their problem by writing the ‘suvichar’ in different languages, and then explained its meaning at the end in Hindi.
Ameya Khopkar wrote a warning note for the actors and creators of TMKOC indicating that despite knowing that Marathi is the main language of Mumbai, they promote such propaganda. He said that these Gujarati insects should be stopped. In addition, he mentioned in the tweet note that Maharashtrian actors who are part of the program should be ashamed to support such a statement.
