The reason is his latest ad.
Sumeet is a popular television actor, majorly known for playing the character of Sahil Sarabhai in the popular sitcom Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai. Now we are sure that you all must be wondering, why has the actor taken a dig at Aamir? Well, continue reading to know the details.
Sumeet Raghavan has shared a tweet in which he has taken a dig at Bollywood actor Aamir Khan over his latest commercial in which the latter is seen goofing up with the pronunciation of Marathi surname ‘Shinde’. Check out his tweet below:
Marathi surnames are meant to be ruined in ads,films. @aamir_khan says “शिंडे” in the ad. How difficult is it to say “शिंदे”? And nobody knows the pronunciation?Agency,production house,client,script writer,assistants,post prod crew nobody knows?
Really? सयाजी बघ रे बाबा..😂

This is the advertisement of PhonePe in which we’ll see Aamir Khan and Alia Bhatt in the same frame. In this ad, Khan plays the character of Inspector Desai, and he learns how people across the country trust PhonePe to make safe digital payments. In this ad, Aamir says a dialogue in Hindi that means, “Who uses PhonePe, Shinde?” And it looks like the wrong pronunciation of Shinde has slightly irked Sumeet Raghvan. He writes, “Marathi surnames are meant to be ruined in ads, films.”
For those of you who have not seen the ad yet, check it out below:
Well, after Sumeet’s tweet, many netizens too slammed Aamir. Check out the fan tweets below:
तेंडुलकर becomes तेंदुलकर
आंबेडकर becomes अंबेडकर
शिंदे becomes शिंडे
And many more.

I have two Tendulkar friends.
One pronounces his surname as तेंडुलकर other as तेंदूळकर
Which should I believe is right?

I wholeheartedly agree with whatever Mr Raghavan states 🙏

आमीर खान ला का दोष द्यावा? महाराष्ट्रात किती टक्के लोक “ण” व “न” चा ऊच्चार योग्य प्रकारे करतात? आपलंच नाणं खोटं असेल तर ईतरांना दोष देण्यात काय अर्थ आहे! 🤷🏻♂️ मराठीला अभिजात दर्जा मिळावा म्हणुन भांडणार्यांनी आधी भाषा शुद्धीची चळवळ चालवावी🙏🏼
