After producer Asit Kumarr Modi, actor Amit Bhatt, who plays the role of Bapu Ji, also known as Champak chacha in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, has issued an apology to the party of Raj Thackeray Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) at the Hindi language row.

Bapu Ji tells residents how all languages ​​should be respected, since they belong to different cultures and have a rich history. He also mentions that Hindi is the most spoken language in Mumbai and that everyone understands it, therefore, they should use it at the board of society.

He complained that despite knowing that Marathi is the main language in Mumbai, the program had its own propaganda. He said that Maharashtrian actors on the show should be ashamed to support something like this.

This caused Asit Kumarr Modi to quickly clear the air. He tweeted: “Mumbai is in Maharashtra and Marathi is the official language of our Maharashtra. There is no doubt in this. I am Indian. I am Maharashtrian and also Gujarati. I respect all Indian languages.” “.
