    Haha depends who's speaking it, it can be a very soft language too. Although 99.9% speak like Sidhu Moosewala. Haryanavi is like Punjabi and Rajasthani had a baby, and that baby grew up with UPiites.

    For Punjabi speakers it may well be the original Urdu or Persian pronunciation. So jaroori sounds very unsophisticated. The irony being that Arabs find zaroori the funny pronunciation compared to Ḍaroori with a hard Ḍād (ﺽ).

    In Bengali, it's often the other way round. In the literary standard, you would pronounce it Joruri. The more Eastern dialects would say zoruri and that is considered very rustic / crude.

    My name does the whole gamut - Ridha, Reza or Reja depending on who's speaking...
    Aside from TB loan words, we don't have any "z" words in Nepali. Even "bazaar" is pronounced "bajaar". There are quite a few TB place names with "z" and they're all pronounced "j" by Nepali speakers, but the local speakers do pronounce z properly. I think Newari also has quite a few Z words. I only learned to pronounce "z" properly in the US.

    Most Sanskrit based languages lack Z and F so that likely has to do with it.

    We pronounce words with r as l.

    For example rekha (line) would be lekha (likh).

    Or completely without r.
    Priya - Piya.
    Thus Asok is called Piyadasi which is how Greek (but not Aramaic) also noted him - Piodases.
