A Puzzling Parcel for Rajkumar Hirani

Director of Munnabhai MMBS, Lage Raho Munnabhai, and 3 Idiots, Rajkumar Hirani was surprised when he received a puzzling parcel from Australia. A parcel was sent by a person, named Kranti Hirani from in New South Wales in Australia in a hope that award-winning director might be related to his family.

Kranti Hirani posted pictures and CD containing images of his extended family in a hope that Rajkumar Hirani will recognize any one of them. But strangely, he did not send the parcel at his address because he was unaware, so he addressed it as ‘Rajkumar Hirani, director of ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Munnabhai’, Santa Cruz’.

The Postal Department of India also did their duty fairly and sent the parcel at director’s address.  When parcel reached the postal department, it created a buzz, but finally officials able to locate his actual residence address in Bandra East and delivered the parcel two weeks after it was dispatched by Kranti Hirani.

Rajkumar Hirani says,

“I was stunned by this whole episode. I can understand a parcel being delivered without an address to someone like Amitabh Bachchan or Aamir Khan, but how did this happen to me? I’m very grateful to the postal department for going out of their way to deliver this parcel to me.”

Though RajKumar Hirani denied any relation with Kranti Hirani, but he is thankful to the postal department who delivered the parcel at his address instead of sending back to the sender. After giving three movies continuously hit, Rajkumar Hirani has created a buzz in the industry and hundreds of his fans are daily sending him letters.
