After the Indian government’s recent statement about giving the Covid-19 vaccine to those ‘who need it,’ and not ‘want it,’ filmmaker and Scam 1992 director Hansal Mehta has reacted to the news via a Twitter post.

Sharing a picture of his 25-year-old son Pallava, who suffers from Down Syndrome, Hansal Mehta tweeted, “My son Pallava is 25 years old. He has Downs Syndrome. He has suffered from a near fatal respiratory failure a few years ago. Does he want the vaccine or does he need it?”
