The English phrase 'what's up?' translates directly into Hindi as क्या चल रहा है? Or 'kyā hō rahā hai?' If you were asking someone about their health in a more formal setting, you might prefer to ask 'How is your health?', which in Hindi becomes क्या हाल है? Or 'kyā hāl hai?'

Remember that colloquial phrases in English like 'what's up?' may not carry the same mean in another language, even when translated, so if in doubt, keep with the formal greeting. You may also find, with Hindi in particular, even polite phrases may change dependent on who you are talking to (a stranger, or an elder, as opposed to a friend) and tone of voice can be as important as what you say.
