One user wrote, "Sindhi is official language of Sindh state of Pakistan and spoken by 3 crore Pakistanis at least." Another comment read, "Married in a proud Sindhi family where everyone speaks Sindhi, it’s a beautiful language, trying and hoping for my kids to learn the language too… I can only understand though." "Can someone tell him Sindh has Sindhi as a compulsory language? I’d also like to invite him to Karachi airport where there is more Sindhi being spoken than any other language including Urdu. Honestly, tired of Bollywood actors trying to sound knowledgeable abt Pak. Stay in your lanes pls and only talk abt your films ok tx bye," said another. "If nothing else, Bollywood folks deserve full marks for the "confidence" with which they speak about Pakistan having absolutely no clue! Kids in Sindh can't pass matriculation without writing a Sindhi exam. We have Sindhi TV, poetry, music, dramas, newspapers but no he knows more!" read another comment.
