Hansal Mehta is in London filming his upcoming film with Kareena Kapoor. On Friday, he tweeted about his daughter, who was on a school trip in Bali and was having difficulty returning to India. In his tweet, the filmmaker also tagged External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and asked for his assistance in bringing his daughter home safely. Hansal and his wife Safeena Husain have two daughters, Kimaya and Rehana.
“Need help urgently,” Hansal Mehta tweeted. My daughter is on a school trip in Bali and has misplaced her OCI (Overseas Citizenship of India) card. She must return to India by tomorrow or risk becoming stranded. Please assist @DrSJaishankar.” Hansal’s tweet has yet to be responded to by the external affairs minister or ministry of external affairs officials from India or Bali. The filmmaker frequently criticises the government and shares his political views on social media.
Hansal has been in London filming his next film, starring Kareena. The plot and title of this film have remained unknown. Kareena, who will play a detective in the thriller, was joined on set in the UK by her son Jehangir Ali Khan. Meanwhile, Hansal made headlines recently when a Twitter user accused him of “giving Kangana Ranaut a flop film.” The filmmaker responded with a jab at the actor’s most recent film, Dhaakad.
Simran was directed by Hansal and starred Kangana Ranaut (2017). He later called working with the actor a “huge mistake.” In response to his tweet about Brahmastra’s high ticket sales and long lines outside theatres in September, a Twitter user said, “Shame on you.” Kangana received a flop film from you.” Hansal responded by writing, “Yeah. “I should not have created Dhaakad.”
