Try prepending in the shell LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/mnt/host/lib:/mnt/host/usr/lib
(add other paths as needed); be careful since this may cause crashes in
programs from UML root fs, since they can get libraries they don't expect
(and I've seen such crashes).
[Pranjal] : I have tried doing that once, but got some other errors. I will try setting the path once again and will let you know the result.

There are people which do it successfully, but try the other approach first.
About what to do, I don't know... if you have a little doubt ask it,
answering may be easier.
[Pranjal]OK, I will privde the steps that I tried to boot hostfileystem directly. Then it would be easier to point the problems.

Inform me of my mistakes, so I can keep imitating Homer Simpson's "Doh!".
