Popular TV actress Hina Khan, made her debut on the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival this year for her upcoming film, ‘Lines’. Though it was meant to be a happy moment for the actress, it was overshadowed by controversial comments made by Jitesh Pillai.
Reported on The Indian Express, Khan, who spoke to film critic Anupama Chopra in an interview for Hotstar, shared her excitement and disappointment. “When I was about to walk the red carpet, I just closed my eyes and I was like ‘Hina, this is just another thing for you, you have done it a million times, be confident and just walk the red carpet. Give it your best.’” She described the overwhelming feeling she had when the photographers called out her name.
Speaking about the comments from Pillai, Khan said, “Coming from somebody sitting at such a huge position, it was disheartening. I did feel bad, I won’t deny. I did feel that it was not necessary.” Further adding, “You really work hard to reach where you want to reach. You got to do something in life to be here.”
Khan’s film ‘Lines’ releases in August.
