14/06/2013Bollywood movies for long have stereotyped South Indians and our films, We hoped and thought Shah Rukh Khan's Chennai Express would be different specially after SRK's recent visit to Chennai, but we were all wrong.
Deepika Padukone accent as a South Indian in the trailer was absolutely horrendous , we have never come across any south Indian speaking Tamil in such a accent.
The entire Twitter fraternity expressed their sheer disbelief and outrage over Deepika's Tamil accent in the movie, However only few Celebrities like Chinmayi and Archana Kalapathi CEO of AGS Cinemas came out and shared their thoughts on the Chennai Express Trailer..
#ChennaiExpress I thought SRK likes chennai!!..Super confused as to what language deepika is speaking!! @chinmayi is that tamil??

‘Chennai Express’ seems like a well researched,nuanced film that has a great understanding of S.Indian culture specially Tamil..said NO ONE.

Updated 18/06/2013Veteran actor Mohan Raman who is also part of Chennai Express cast has come out and voiced his support for SRK's Chennai Express which has been Subjected to many remarks over the odd tamil accent of Deepika Padukone. Here is the tweet by Mohan Raman
Needless doubts that Tamil culture is being ridiculed. From the scenes we acted I can say it is not. Please dont judge even before release.
