Hina Khan to take break from ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ for Bollywood debut

BizAsia Correspondent



Hina Khan has bagged her first Bollywood film, which as a result will see her take a break from ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ on Star Plus.

A source told Times Of India, “Hina will soon begin shooting for a film, in which she will play a responsible and independent girl. The story is set in Kashmir in the 90s. Veteran actress Farida Jalal will play her grandmother.”

Confirming the news, Khan said, “It’s a female-centric story. I also love the fact that it’s set in a time and place, where we are away from the hustle and bustle of city life, technology, daily rush and competition. I am also thrilled about challenging myself in a brand new medium.”

She also spoke about her break from ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’, in which she plays Komolika. She said, “I had prior commitments and the production house was informed about it before I was even signed on to play Komolika. Since the show hasn’t even completed six months, the makers didn’t want my track to start and then disappear for a bit. I will start shooting for the show immediately after my film’s shoot.”

The film is directed by Hussain Khan and written by Rahat Kazmi and Shakti Singh.
