Actor Hussain Dalal is an actor and writer from Bollywood. While he is currently remembered for his role as Munna in Farhan Akhtar-starrer, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directorial Toofaan, Hussain is also a popular writer.

He has penned the script for movies like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Karwaan. The actor has also written the script for the upcoming Ayan Mukerji directorial Brahmastra, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles.

As a writer, he feels that while it is important to be extremely careful, there is also no need to pick on one line or scene.

When asked about his views on OTT censorship, Hussain said, “As a creator, when I'm writing something, I'm not trying to offend anybody. I'm very careful about that. If somebody feels bad, say sorry and move on.”

He added that today’s times are difficult for everybody. “Life is very short. There's a pandemic and people are dying of hunger. I wonder why one scene or line is picked on. I just think nobody should try and offend the others. If anybody is even then, say sorry and move on,” the actor said.

Hussain is best remembered for working in a Nescafe ad. Apart from that, he has also hosted a few shows and has been a part of All India Backchod (AIB) content too.

AIB, which was once a group of entertainers, was known for its explicit content, which made people laugh. The group of comedians also came into controversy after their AIB roast.

They are now functioning separately and have started their own channels where they create different kinds of content for their viewers on YouTube.
