Who is Hasan Minhaj married to?

Comedian Hasan Minhaj has been married to a supportive wife named Beena Patel. The couple tied the knot in 2015 and have been together since. Beena was a huge influence on her husband Hasan’s entire life and career.

Minhaj and Patel first met at the University of California, Davis during their studies and it was love at first sight. Hasan knew he was attracted to Beena the minute he noticed her. They later became close friends and eventually began a romantic relationship.

However, due to Hindu customs, Beena decided not to move in with his husband until they got officially married. When they finally got their own apartment in New York, Beena was the one who was responsible for its decoration, which shows that she has a lot of completely different talents. Their apartment was not very expensive, but they filled it with the sense of home and hospitality.

Both Hasan and Beena grew up in small towns. When they moved to New York from Los Angeles, they thought it would be awesome to have an incredible city view from the apartment, that would feel like a video game. They were searching for their desired home for a long time until they finally found it. The current place that they live in was chosen by Beena, who thought that they could watch the Hudson River flow from the west side. In her opinion, it would be very relaxing, peaceful and calm to see the water when they come home, especially when the sun goes down.

Hasan admitted that before he met Beena, he was a guy with low bachelor needs and “Scarface” photos on his walls. Now, the wall of their apartment is full of adorable pictures from their engagement and wedding ceremony. The comedian also confessed that Beena helped him get used to a lot of little things that make life more comfortable, including throw pillows and scented candles.

A lot of Hasan’s admirers consider him and Beena to be relationship goals. Even though the medical practitioner has a tight schedule, sometimes she still finds time to accompany Hasan to various social and red carpet events, and it shows how supportive she is towards the love of her life. She is usually quiet on social media, as she dedicates all her energy to work and family. However, Beena can sometimes be seen in Hasan’s Instagram photos, and it is clear that he appreciates and values her a lot.

Beena Patel is a confident woman who deserves a lot of praise for her lifelong achievements. Hasan Minhaj is undoubtedly one lucky man for having her.

Hasan Minhaj slammed after admitting to ‘making up’ young daughter’s hospital health scare for stand-up stories

Minhaj has admitted to “making up” multiple stories for his stand-up bits, including a health scare involving his young daughter.

However, Minhaj is now being slammed by fans and critics after revealing that he fabricated and embellished details in his life to use for his stand-up sets.

“Every story in my style is built around a seed of truth,” he told The New Yorker on Friday.

“My comedy Arnold Palmer is 70 percent emotional truth – this happened – and then 30 percent hyperbole, exaggerations, fiction.”

One of these stories was included in his 2022 Netflix special The Kings Jester in which Minhaj recalled the chaos surrounding the time his family received an envelope with white powder.

The letter was sent to the house and the substance fell onto his daughter, prompting Minhaj to take her to the hospital believing it to be anthrax.

Thankfully for the family, a doctor determined that the powder wasn’t anthrax and the young girl wasn’t hurt at all.

Minhaj told the outlet the incident was a sobering reminder that his jokes onstage have real-world effects.

He claimed his wife, who was pregnant with their second child at the time, told him: “You get to say whatever you want onstage, and we have to live with the consequences.

“I don’t give a s**t that Time magazine thinks you’re an ‘influencer.’ If you ever put my kids in danger again, I will leave you in a second.”

While Minhaj swore an envelope with white powder did arrive to his home, he admitted to The New Yorker that his daughter wasn’t exposed to it or even went to the hospital.

He also admitted to fabricating a story where he claimed that a white FBI informant covertly attended his family’s mosque in Sacramento.

Minhaj claimed that he made a joke to the informant about getting his pilot’s license which led to the police arriving and slamming him on the hood of his car.

Apparently, the idea for the store came from a time when Minhaj was a teenager and playing a pickup game with a group of other Muslim teens with middle-aged men who they thought were cops.

One of the men apparently pushed Minhaj to the ground.

“No, I don’t think I’m manipulating [the audience],” said Minhaj. “I think they are coming for the emotional roller-coaster ride…To the people that are, like, ‘Yo, that is way too crazy to happen,’ I don’t care because yes, f**k yes — that’s the point.”

He said his stories were all “grounded in truth,” however, the reporter from The New Yorker told him, “But it didn’t happen to you.”

“I think what I’m ultimately trying to do is highlight all of those stories,” Minhaj said. “Building to what I think is a pointed argument.”

While speaking with Variety, Minhaj defended his actions.

“All my standup stories are based on events that happened to me,” he said. “Yes, I was rejected from going to prom because of my race. Yes, a letter with powder was sent to my apartment that almost harmed my daughter.”
