Its not only influencing English language it is influencing politicians also

1/ Congress bought the Jai Ho rights
2/ Narendra Modi using Oscar awards to the movie to criticise Congress. In his speech he said

” Oscar ka poora credit Congress Shasan ko jaata hai. Congress hai isliye Mumbai mein slums hai. Slum hai isliye slumdog movie banee, movie banee isliye usse Oscar mila.
