Mani has been in the business for many years. He has been a host, a producer, and an actor. His wife, Hira, got into the business later, first as a host and then as an actress. She made her first appearance on Preet Na Kariyo Koi. Her subsequent big hits included Mere Paas Tum Ho, Do Bol, Yakeen Ka Safar, and Kashf. Both the audience and the critics loved what she did.
While promoting his movie Lafangey, Mani talked to one of the online magazines and said some surprising things. He said that when Hira comes home from filming a drama and cries because she thinks the project is “Bakwaas,” the drama does well. On the other hand, the dramas she thinks are great while making them usually don’t work out.
He said that all the dramas that Hira thought were “bakwaas” while they were being made, like Mere Paas Tum Ho, Kashf, and Do Bol, turned out to be big hits.
