An unexpected invitation by a world star.. personally, after I gained consciousness and prepared my self to finally make it, I was still an outsider but only until you arrived. You didn’t need to, but still never left my hand for a second, introduced me to the people I probably wouldn’t have met and I felt as if all the achievements of my little career happening in fast forward as you present me as a star to each one of them. You somehow know everything ..as you mentioned my debut film and praised me for my hard work and appreciated me for the risks I have taken in my choices. Yes I have taken risks and I am still taking them, whr I almost have everything in my television career ..position,power,money everything.. But someone has to start somewhere I believe.. I always wanted to break the stereotypes and prove it to the world that television actors have it all.. Give us the opportunity our fare share and we will kill it..Not easy at all I know.. But ya I will keep trying keep working hard and make it possible.. I REPEAT TELEVISION HAS IT ALL.. Talent, Glamour, Elegance, Beauty, Grace, Right attitude , and Professionalism.. I am taking baby steps, And I will keep doing that no matter how much criticism one has to face and I will make my own place I promise.. we will face it and win over it as long as we are together.. Hearfelt Gratitude to each one of you for standing by me🙏 WE HAVE IT ALL GUYS.. With my first debut film called LINES, I am trying hard very hard to erase the lines created between talents and mediums 🙏And coming back to @priyankachopra your inclusiveness surpasses my ability of comprehension. Your deliberate attempt to lift up people around you not for their backgrounds but their talent is one of a kind. You are a walking inspiration! When a human being is a personification of an idea of self belief, Grace , humility, substance and greatness, that person can only be you priyanka Chopra You are already the best version of my dream self in the future I want and I believe thousands others like me do too. This is the Priyanka Chopra who believes in lifting others and growing together🙏 you are a sweetheart @nickjonas #AnOutsider #FromTelevisonToCannes
Cannes 2019 is proving to be a turning point in Hina Khan’s life. This celebrated Indian actress who has earned her fame, not from Bollywood but the Indian TV Industry walked the red carpet in her Cannes debut in a Zaid Nakad gown.
She was in news not for being the sole TV industry personality from India to walk the red carpet, but after the whole TV industry united to slam a magazine editor after he made a snide comment about the Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actress’ presence at Cannes 2019. The issue is still hot on social media.
Yesterday, one can see her pics with the Bollywood brigade. In these pics, she was sharing the frame with the couple: Priyanka Chopra – Nick Jonas, Huma Qureshi and Diana Penty at the Chopard bash. Hina was very much comfortable as she was interacting with the party participants.
She went further and wrote an Instagram note, where she mentioned that what she felt about Priyanka Chopra personally extending her an invitation to be a part of the party. She was taken aback by the love showered on her by Priyanka at the do. Revealing some details, Hina is there for her upcoming movie: Lines.
Yesterday, Hina Khan and Ishqbaaaz star Nakuul Mehta both wrote a huge note on social media saying how the demarcation of artistic mediums was a sad thing. Adding to their support base, even Sumona Chakravarti also put up a huge post.
It seems that while Hina was carrying expectations that her Cannes debut would get her admiration alike other Indian female performers who walked the Red Carpet at Cannes 2019, Hina went ahead and surprisingly managed to unite the TV industry like never before.
