Gulshan Devaiah defended Jr. NTR after some people on social media criticised his accent on the red carpet at the Golden Globes. In response to a question about the song from his movie RRR, Jr. NTR said, “We thought we had a winner, especially given Rajamouli’s track record.” But in Japan, this was more than a winner, and in America today… come on, you didn’t expect this to happen, did you? But some people talked about his accent on social media sites.
Later, Gulshan Devaiah wrote on Twitter, “I think NTR’s accent isn’t as bad as people say it is, and it’s also a planned PR move.” Don’t rush him. Give him time to try to spread his wings and fly. If he can break into the global Hollywood market, it will be good for Indian movies. “We’ll all benefit from it.”
He also tweeted in response to a reporter, “I think NTR Jr. would sound exactly like he does now if he lived in the US because that’s how he would speak as a first-generation immigrant.” We all have relatives who have lived in the US for decades and have even worse accents, but we think we know everything there is to know about accents.
