Hamid Ansari’s household in Versova was full of tears and celebrations as he returned home after six long years. Ansari returned after being in prison for six years on charges of entering Pakistan illegally from Afghanistan.
“I was worried and unsure if I would ever be able to return home from Pakistan, but eventually when I saw people supporting me, I started to pray. My family, the Indian government and Sushma Swaraj helped me a lot,” said Ansari.
He further said that he would approach Aamir Khan to make a movie on him. After he celebrates with his family, he will look for a job and then get married and settled.
But his biggest advice was never to fall in love on Facebook.
Saying that one can never expect decent treatment in prison, he said that he was tortured and his retina was torn during interrogation, reported Hindustan Times.
Ansari’s family was ready to serve biryani after all these years. During these years, they had shunned every function.
Hamid’s elder brother, Khalid Ansari, said that everything in the house had remained in the same place for these six years.
The family was so overwhelmed that they could hardly believe Ansari was back. They would often touch him to make sure he was real.
