Hina Khan who made her Cannes debut this year and even walked the red carpet twice was mocked by an editor of a film magazine. The actress won our hearts with both her stunning looks at the red carpet. While a lot of people appreciated her, a renowned filmy magazine editor passed a distasteful comment on her. He shared her pic on her Instagram story and wrote, “Cannes has suddenly become Chandivali studios kya.”
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, 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.
