Hina Khan who made her Cannes debut this year and even walked the red carpet twice was in the centre of controversy. The actress won our hearts with both her stunning looks at the red carpet. However, when her appearance at the prestigious film festival was questioned, a lot of people stood up for her. Now, she has responded to the entire controversy. In an interview with Hindustan Times, the actress was asked about the remark passed on her. Hina said that she felt disheartened to hear something like that. She asked why would someone look down upon TV and if TV celebs are given the opportunity, they will. She added that if one can’t say anything good, they shouldn’t say something like this either.
The actress also stated, “I have worked hard to be where I am. I know how I managed to shoot the film and my TV shoot. But, I can never play a victim as I have confidence in myself and I will prove my worth with time, with God’s grace. And I am grateful that so many people stood by me.”
For those who don’t know, Hina Khan was promoting her film Lines at Cannes 2019 and shared the red carpet with Priyanka Chopra, Sonam K Ahuja, Diana Penty, Huma Qureshi and Deepika Padukone.
A lot of celebrities like Nakuul Mehta, Karanvir Bohra, Farah Khan, Arjun Bijlani, Sumona Chakravarti and many others came out in support of Hina. These celebs also raised their voice against the discrimination that is done between the TV and film actors.
Hina Khan participated in Bigg Boss and also plays the role of Komolika in Kasautii Zindagi Kay 2. While there were rumours about her walking out of the show, sources maintain that she is very much a part of the show. As Hina couldn’t juggle her film and television careers, it seemed obvious that she would choose films over television. Hina Khan shared a selfie with Priyanka Chopra from Cannes 2019.
