We have recently expanded our operations to Hyderabad and have learned few amazing slang words of Hyderabad we think we all should use in our daily life. Let’s have a look at those in today’s article.
Potti is a typical slang word used for a pretty or sexy girl. It is widely used in Hyderabad and we think it should be added to the dictionary of amazing words.
MAA KI KIRIKIRI
This is a Hyderabadi synonym for words ‘what the hell’ or ‘what the fuck’. Typically used when you are pissed off, annoyed or enraged. So, you have got a really good substitute for WTF we believe.
PS: Think twice before using.
Ustaad is a widely used world across India but the Hyderabadi accent to it is just out of the world. This is a slang word and a synonym for a friend, Bro or Master.
The world itself has that feel of awesomeness to it. Kirak is a slang word used for a person or a thing which is awesome and crazy.
Slap sounds old? Then try JHAAPAD. This is similar to a Hindi word “THAPPAD” which is a synonym for slap, hit or a punch.
Toilet or Restroom sounds too official? Say “Dhaar Maar ke Aata Hoon” which means I’m going for a Pee. This is an authentic Hyderabadi world which you must try to use in your friend circle.
Khaapit is used for a person who is an expert or a specialist in certain things. A perfect slang world which has a sarcastic touch to it.
The world Baigan literally means a vegetable Brinjal but in Hyderabad, it is used as a slang word which is quite popular. Often used to express displeasure. For an instance, “Baigan ki baatein nakko kar mere saamne.”
KEEL PAAD KE
This is an another authentic and stronger Hyderabadi word used for an act of hard work or doing something with a lot of effort. We can relate this to words like ‘ass tearing’ and ‘butt breaking’.
A hilarious replacement to words like BAANDLI and TAKLA. If you have a friend who is bald then you can try this new word on him.
