Filmmaker Hansal Mehta married his long-time partner of 17 years, social worker Safeena Husain, in an impromptu ceremony.
The director took to his Instagram handle and shared a series of pictures of the ceremony, in which the newlywed couple can be seen signing the wedding documents and hugging each other. He captioned the post and wrote, “So after 17 years, two children, watching our sons growing up and chasing our respective dreams we decided to get hitched”
“As always in life this was also impromptu and unplanned. Our vows, however, were to be truthful but for this little ceremony they would never have been stated. Ultimately love prevails over all else. And it has…” added Mehta.
Safeena is a social worker and the founder of the Educate Girls non-profit. She is the late actor Yusuf Hussain’s daughter. The duo has been together for 17 years and only one got hitched.
Meanwhile, on the work front, the filmmaker is currently working on many projects at the same time after the success of ‘Scam 1993: The Harshad Mehta Story’.
He is also working on ‘Scoop’, a Netflix original series, and ‘Captain India’, a feature film starring Kartik Aaryan. He also directed the action movie ‘Faraaz’ with his son Jai Mehta and is working on a film with Kareena Kapoor.
