Fans were shocked when comedian Hasan Minhaj revealed he was in India. Before landing in Mumbai, Hasan, who is best known for his Netflix series Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, was spotted spending time with his family in Bangalore. One of the numerous things he did after arriving in the city was to go to Shah Rukh Khan’s house, Mannat.
Mannat, which is now a popular tourist destination in Bandra, sees crowds of admirers taking pictures in front of the house’s distinctive doors. Hasan joined the crowd and posed in front of the sea-facing house. “Pulled up to Shah Rukh’s. He didn’t answer tho,” Hasan captioned the image when sharing it.
Fans were saddened when Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj was canceled in 2020. When Minhaj’s show initially premiered on the streaming service in 2018, it did something that had never been done before: Muslim Indian-American humorist of the modern era, born of immigrants, bringing out contemporary challenges and problems.
Elections, climate change, capitalism, and immigration were among the important subjects he spoke, but they were all presented in a way that was almost comedic. Minaj’s performances were a positive twist on the call-out culture: he confronted federations and major corporations by disclosing the truth about them while injecting humor to keep the audience’s attention.
