However, he believes in making strong statements with his films.A writer, editor, director and producer, the man with many talents, Hirani is also particularly careful about his words in the social media age.

"I have to be careful in what I speak because I don't know how I will be quoted. So, unknowingly my voice takes a backseat because if we speak, people will start thrashing us on social media," Hirani said while promoting his new production 'Saala Khadoos' in an interview here.
