  1. Hi Hansal,
    How are you? We heard you made fantastic Biryani on Eid. 🙂
    I tried locating your email address on your blog, but couldn’t. I was wondering whether you would be interested in an email interview on your food blog. Please let me know. Then I could send you an email questionnaire on your email address provided by you.

    With warm regards,
    Tanya

      1. Haii sir ,i want give audition for your upcoming movie, so can i get details about audition, or your office address.

  2. why people say

    I don’t have to use glycerin for my shots.
    It (bollywood) happened to me…
    i don’t know what would I would have been be if I had not been an actor (only kids of stars). The other lowly creatures know for sure they have to do something to eat.

    I am low of alcohol and also sleepy so will not add more.

  3. I also laugh at stories where people want to relive their life to become young again and to rectify their mistakes. Making a mistake to correct a mistake

  4. Hi Hansal,
    The day I read about the life of Shahid, it changed my life. The Quran says that Shaheeds never die, they are alive. And I find that so true with Shahid Azmi. Thanks for giving life to Shahid’s struggle.

    Appreciate your guts.

  10. I have seen “Chhal” & “dil pe mat le yaar” & now watched “shahid” yesterday, good to see that the film did not create any controversy(highly surprising).A good piece of bio pic, it was.Would love to see u make another bio pic on the forgotten legend-dhyan chand. As tigmanshu dhulia, once rightly said-The industry should make more bio pics,India has many stories.

  11. Just read abt great mathematician vashishtha narayan singh.gr8 mathematician left to fend for himself until a few months back when he was made visiting faculty.

  12. Dear Hansal

    I have just completed watching Shahid and no matter how well the screenplay or the casting or the direction have panned out for it, I think its wrong to use adjectives like good or beautiful for this movie. I will put it this way, what you have portrayed in those few hours, made me feel really sad about what happened to Shahid in a country that I otherwise considered to be free and unbound. I think Shahid is a movie that our country needs. When Shahids do not find their voice through the so called free and unbiased mass communication media, filmmakers like you do a job tad beyond making a nicely crafted film. This I consider as nation building via film-making.

  13. sir,
    i seen your film shahid and i loved the film very much.
    I came to know about the person shahid azmi after watching your movie.
    I wonder how many more people in the history of india, who made their life to make better society to live.
    I am greatful for you to take risk and make this kind of movie. I read your interview how you gone through to get producers and distributors to make this film.
    I did not liked your earlier films but this one is truly amazing movie.
    I become fan of your and i hope you will make better films than shahid in coming years.

  14. Hello Sir
    thanks for very important information about Hansal Mehta .this artical is very nice . sir please tell me Hansal Mehta next movie information . I am fan Hansal Mehta .
    Sir again thanks

  15. Congrats on your national award. Although I do support Modi and hope BJP win, atleast you were honest in our opinion for asking people to not vote for Modi on TimesNow. Good luck for future projects.

  16. sir i m great fan of shahid.. great movie. I am a engineer bt find every thing really boring..with machine..thank god we have entrtainer like u..

  17. Hello sir.
    Met you at the park hotel delhi yesterday.
    We shared a smoke together.
    However did not realize you had made some great films.
    Should confess I was a bit high on weed then.
    Well I had heard great stuff about shahid from friends.
    And wanted to convey that message and I will also be watching it soon.

    Also during college I did enjoy watching ye kya ho raha hai. Though not one of my super favorite films.

    But looking forward to watch shahid and city lights.
    Keep making films sir.
    We all love watching stories

    Thanks
    Rakesh gusain
