Hina Khan revealed that she felt like an outsider at the Cannes Film Festival only until she received an “unexpected invitation” from Priyanka to her party.
Hina wrote: “An unexpected invitation by a world star… personally, after I gained consciousness and prepared myself 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, when 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.”
Hina Khan made the most of her time there and was in the good company of Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas, Diana Penty, Huma Qureshi and others.
