New Delhi: Singer-anchor-actor Meiyang Chang is tired of being considered a foreigner and finds it strange when people talk to him only in English.

"Don`t understand WHY people INSIST on talking to me in English when I`m speaking to them in Hindi. My name is Chang & I`m not a foreigner (sic)," he tweeted.

Chang, who became popular after featuring in singing reality show "Indian Idol 3", is of Chinese descent but has lived in India all his life. He can speak fluent Hindi.

He has even featured in Bollywood film `Badmaash Company` and also hosts a lot of television shows.
