Hindi is spoken by nearly 500 million people and is the second most spoken native language in the world. Today, 10th January is observed as World Hindi Day since 2006. It is in addition to the National Hindi Day celebrated in India on the 14th of September, because Hindi was chosen as the official language of the Union on 14th September 1949. Many people have the misconception that Hindi is the national language of India and hence the National Hindi Day, but it is not so. India is a country known for its diversity and to respect that we have 22 official languages (including English) instead of one national language.
But there is one place where Hindi is "the" language – Bollywood. It is more formally referred to as Hindi Cinema and the term Bollywood is just inspired by, as we all know, Hollywood. But what if Hollywood gets inspired by our Hindi cinema and starts naming their movies in Hindi? What would their names be?
Here we have seven Hollywood movies and how they would look if they had Hindi names.
Can you think of more Hollywood movie names in Hindi? Let us know in the comments below!
