Finally, someone who noticed her fake accent.. it does sound pretty fake. I have some uncles living in the USA, they still have this Indian accent..

I don't understand how the accent changes when she stayed there just for 5 years but actually grew up HERE for like 35 years and I'm sure she didn't speak in english all her life.. Tongue

If anyone watched her appearance on KBC her first sentence was so with fake wanna bee accent...JDJ I find her totally normal the few episodes I have caught...actually 2-3 episode only...
NRIs do have 2 accents when speaking english...when they talk to their family VS Non-Indians or outsiders...Embarrassed

As an Indian living in USA for the past ten years I can say the 'V' words are where we get screwed the most. Its not a fake accent thing.

Indians use a hard 'V' its almost a 'W'. Have an Indian say water and vase. The v in vase is almost as hard as the w in water. As Indians we have the ear to distinguish the sounds.

In USA 'v' is much softer. The western ear cannot distinguish between our V and W sounds. People give me a hard time when I say veggie because it sounds like wedgie to them. So Indians tend to get very conscientious of V words and other common audiophile & accent issues. The net result can be a very awkward and fake sounding pronunciation that is neither here or there .

Edit to add: Wanna really watch the most fake pretentious accent? Aishwariya Rai's US interviews with Oprah et al.

Can you say that in English please?

Just picking on you, no harm intended. Smile I think netspeak is killing English faster than Ebonics ever could. Now even black people complain that netspeak is killing ebonics too. Oh the irony. LOL

Hows it fake? She has been states for quiet sometime so effect is bound to be there. Her accent has bit of Marathi touch too but that doesn't make it fake.

Just  some more time and she'll be back with her perfect Hindi+Marathi accent and as of now its anything but fake.

How is her accent fake? She gets a bit of an "Amreeki" accent coz she's been living there for over 5 years.. and when that accent gets mixed up with her Indian accent, it ends up sounding weird.. when she speaks some specific words.. It happens.. she's been living there for quite long and her kids must speak some hardcore accent bhari english.. LOL So, while talking to them, you tend to pick up some accent.. And please, Madhuri is the last person whom I'll accuse of being fake or a wannabee! LOL

I dont think its fake....
 
Its mainly because she has been living in USA for a while now! so change would be  there no matter how long you have stay in india or usa
 
using myself as an example i am born in india but grew up in philippines then when is was 15 we moved here in canada... my accent is totally different its like 3 in one!
-- and i just talk normal... some words would sound in filipino accent some in indian and others canadian.... its weird
