English Is A Funny Language, Amitabh Bachchan Proves Again With Hilarious Tweet

In a hilarious tweet, Amitabh Bachchan compared English with Hindi.


Almost four decades after regaling the audience with his hilarious "English is a funny language" monologue in Namak Halaal, Amitabh Bachchan has proved this point yet again. In a tweet posted this morning, Mr Bachchan, in his usual witty style, elucidated on the efficacy of Hindi as a language over English.

Explaining how a long, wordy sentence in English could be condensed into a succinct one word in Hindi, Mr Bachchan wrote: "Just look at the efficacy of the Hindi language:

(In English)

I am sorry, I can not hear you properly, can you please repeat what is the matter?

(In Hindi)

Hain (huh)"

Who can deny, in the face of such a brilliant example, that Hindi is definitely a more efficient language? The simple "hain", after all, can be used to express a range of emotions from confusion to wonder to anger.

Since being shared online, Mr Bachchan's tweet has collected over 12,000 'likes' along with hundreds of comments.

Some Twitter users even shared their own hilarious examples

And a few users pointed out that English, too, has a stand-in word for the versatile hain.
