Bollywood films like Dangal (film),[4] Sultan (2016 film) and Tanu Weds Manu: Returns have some usage & underlying theme of the Haryanvi language.[5] These movies have received warm appreciation throughout India and abroad.[6][7] As a result, some non-native speakers have shown an interest in learning the Haryanvi language.[8][9]

Haryanvi language has successfully made its presence count into Indian Cinema,[10][11] TV[12] popular music albums[13][14][15] & academia.[16][17] With the influence of Haryana in the fields of sports, Bollywood, defence,[18][19][20] idustrialisation[21][22] & politics[23][24][25] the Haryanvi Language and Culture[26] has also been promoted in significant proportion. Notable persons who speak Haryanvi language and had made it big on national canvas are Phogat sisters,[27][28] Vijender Singh,[29] Sushil Kumar,[30] Baba Ramdev,[31][32] Dushyant Chautala, Sapna Chaudhary,[33][34] Randeep Hooda,[35] Satish Kaushik[36] among a lot of others.

In Pakistan

Its speakers migrated from Haryana and Delhi of India to Pakistan. Now in Pakistan, it is a "mother tongue" as used in homes and villages of Ranghar community. Millions of Raangrri Speaking peoples lived in the number of thousands of Villages in Punjab, Pakistan (where they have completely hold politically and morally), and hundreds of villages in Sindh and all over Pakistan. After the independence of Pakistan in 1947, many Uttar Pradesh Ranghars also migrated to Sindh in Pakistan and mostly settling in Karachi.

After independence of Pakistan, the Haryanvi (Raangrri) speaking peoples have settled down mainly in the districts of Lahore, Sheikhupura, Bhakkar, Bahawalnagar, Rahim yar Khan District (specially in Khanpur tehsil), Okara, Layyah, Vehari, Sahiwal, Phullarwan District Sargodha and Multan of Punjab. In districts of Pakpattan, Okara, and Bahawalnagar which have the densest concentrations of Raangrri Speakers, they consist mostly of small peasants, with many serving in the army, police and Civil Services. They maintain an overarching tribal council (panchayat in the Raanghari language), which deals with a number of issues, such as punishments for petty crime or co-operation over village projects.[37] Haryanvi Speakers are also found in Mirpur Khas and Nawabshah Districts of Sindh. Most Ranghar are now bilingual, speaking Urdu language as National. Punjabi, Saraiki and Sindhi as Regional, as well as still speaking Raangrri language as "First Language" or "Mother Language" or "Village Language" or "Community Language". A large number of Ranghars are also found in the capital city of Islamabad. They speak Urdu with Raangrri accent. Muley Jats, in addition, the Odh community in Pakistan also speak Raanghari as their mother tongue.
