Thank you to all those who called and tweeted to help.” Hansal Mehta had earlier tweeted, “Need help urgently.

Some Twitter users had tried helping Hansal and gave him some leads in ensuring his daughter’s safe return to India. “Kindly contact the hon'ble vice consul for the consular and administration of the Consulate General of India, Bali, Indonesia at +62 81139 90996, via WhatsApp Messenger, please,” responded a person to the filmmaker's tweet asking for help. Another Twitter user had tagged the official spokesperson of the ministry of external affairs, and written, “Could you please help.”

Hansal has been shooting his next film starring Kareena in London. Details and title of this film have been kept under wraps. Kareena, who will play the role of a detective in the thriller, was joined by her son Jehangir Ali Khan during the shoot in the UK. Meanwhile, Hansal was recently in news after a Twitter user accused him of ‘giving Kangana Ranaut a flop film’. The filmmaker had shot back with a jibe at the actor’s last release, Dhaakad.

Hansal had directed Kangana Ranaut in Simran (2017). He has since called working with the actor a ‘massive mistake’. In September, while responding to his tweet about Brahmastra’s high ticket sales and long queues outside theatres, a Twitter user had said, “Shame on you. You gave a flop film to Kangana.” In response, Hansal had written, “Yeah. I shouldn’t have made Dhaakad.”
