Singer Sophie Choudry became the latest celebrity to be questioned about her accent. She recently posted a video in which she gives a sneak peek of her hectic working day in Thailand. While her determination in the video impressed fans, it was her “accent” that caught the attention of a user who asked her, “Why live that accent in India?” Read also: Jr NTR indirectly talks about being caught with “fake accent” at Golden Globes
The Manjave singer responded, “@adhikaricharitra ummm born and raised in England, studied in Paris, working in India… what accent should I have? is so eclectic.”
The video begins with Sophie traveling in a car and telling her that her flight is delayed. She shares details of her car ride to the venue where she performed until 2am. Her message read, “What Gig Days Can Look Like.”
Sophie Choudry was born in Manchester, England and later moved to Mumbai in 2003 for work. She started her career as a VJ for MTV India and hosted MTV Loveline. Some of her best songs include Ek Pardesi Mera Dil Le Gaya remix, Baby Love, Aaj Naiyo Saun and Do You Know Baby. In addition, she has also participated in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa season 7 and appeared in Bigg Boss 8 as a guest.
However, Sophie isn’t the only one whose accent left people scratching their heads. Earlier it was actor Jr NTR who drew all the attention with his thick accent on the red carpet of the Golden Globes. While many called his accent “fake,” his fans also supported him.
At the 80th Golden Globe Awards, Jr NTR and his RRR team arrived on the red carpet in excitement and answered a few questions from the media. Speaking of the film, Jr NTR said, “We definitely thought, taking into account Rajamouli’s track record, we had a winner. But this was a little more than a winner in Japan and today, America… come on, you don’t expect this to happen.” He recently addressed the criticism surrounding his accent indirectly, telling the LA Times newspaper: “We’re just divided by time zones and a bit of an accent. Other than that, what an actor in the West goes through is exactly the same process as in the East. .”
