Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and other Bollywood celebs will be roped in by the ruling government to promote the Urdu language. As reported by The Print,  the National Council for Promotion of Urdu Language (NCPUL) that comes under the Ministry of Human Resource Development wants to play a bigger role in promoting the Urdu language.
 
The portal reports that the NCPUL is facing tough competition from the private Urdu organisations like Rekhta and many others. Hence, to up their game, they will be approaching celebs like SRK, Salman, Kat and others to talk in Urdu in their video and use it for their events.
 
Twitterati is not really convinced with the idea of Salman and Katrina promoting the language. One of the Twitter users wrote, "ha ha ha humor of  the day : salman khan & Katrina kaif !!!!"
 
Read below their reactions:




 
Aquil Ahmed, the director of NCPUL told the portal that the council is being given the job of promoting the Urdu language. However, so far they have only been producing literature in the language hence, they now want to focus more on promoting the language and not limit to the literature.
 
Ahmed said that from the film industry, so far Bollywood lyricist Javed Akhtar and actor Shabana Azmi have come forward in support of the Urdu language.

I have not seen this news anywhere. Where is the link?

bollywood movie is full of urdu songs and even language. Hardly pure hindi is spoken. Please promote hindi formost.

Why promote urdu first of all

Use your brain and Think stupid haters... Katrina Kaif is a muslim just because you’re born outside Idnia your identity doesn’t change... if you’re born indian you’re an indian... stop using this negative thoughts and clear your cow dung brains... Get educated her Father is an Indian so that makes her indian case close.. #StupidIndians

Government is simply wasting the money trying to promote urdu language. People are free to speak in whatever Lang they want. If they want they can speak in english, hindi or whatever language. Instead of paying these superstar big bucks it's better they do. Something for youth employment

They wanted Muslim actors for it . Since no A List actress is a Muslim and kat is the only one who claims to be a Muslim that's why they chose her.

Hindi is national language of India and many people still don’t know how to read, speak, understand Hindi. Please promote Hindi first before any other langauage.
