Besides Telugu, Hindi is the second most popular language of Visakhapatnam. Visakhapatnam is a cosmopolitan city where people from different parts of India reside.

A substantial population of Visakhapatnam comprise Bengalis and Oriyas. Therefore, these two languages are also widely spoken in this coastal city of Andhra Pradesh.
