Hai Mera Dil has always been a sure-fire shot, guaranteed to make all types of audiences roar at the happenings on stage. However elite or downright rustic an audience, they all respond with tremendous hilarity. There is definitely something special here – the humour arises from the simplest things of life. There is so much humour in everyday existence which we tend to completely overlook in our stressed out schedules but when highlighted, it does not fail to make people burst into peals. Hai Mera Dil has become the best kind of therapy”.
