Hina Khan shines again on red carpet during her second appearance at Cannes Film Festival. See pics here
TV actor Hina Khan made her debut at the Cannes Film Festival this year. The Kasautii Zindagii Kay walked the red carpet for the second time on Saturday and was literally gleaming in the dramatic grey wrap gown with a trail.
Hina had walked the Cannes red carpet for the first time at the screening of Brazilian film Bacurau on Wednesday. She wore a grey embellished Ziad Nakad gown with dramatic sleeves.

She had also unveiled the poster of her film Lines at an event on Thursday. She shared it on Instagram with the caption, “Emotions don’t change because of the borders in between, the life and plight of Nazia is a simple portrayal of any girl who faces the magnitude of ordinary challenges in a not so ordinary story. #Lines is my debut in films. I hope you all love it as much we loved it.This is the first look launched at Cannes and an official poster which depicts more than a poster can!”
The actor was however slammed by a magazine editor who had posted in his Instagram stories, “Cannes has suddenly become Chandivali Studios kya?” She found support in several TV actors who stood up for her, criticising the editor for his comment. The Kapil Sharma Show actor Sumona Chakravarti shared a long post in her support. She wrote, “From stylists saying that designers don’t want to give their clothes to TV actors... to type casting us... to not even giving us the opportunity or considering us for film auditions and now for web shows. TV actors being pitted against unsuccessful film actors or just simply the ones who have played small character roles.”
We are hard working actors. Not everyone comes from a business/filmy background. We all know the bitter truth of Bollywood (nepotism and casting couch is an existing reality. Let’s not kid ourselves). An artiste is an artiste, irrespective of the medium. Respect,” she added.

When Salman Khan was asked about his reaction to the controversy, he had said, “This is very responsible of the editor to make a comment like that, so thoughtful. I don’t understand what did he want to say? Cannes is Chandivali or Chandivali is going to Cannes.” Hina was a participant on Bigg Boss 11, which was hosted by Salman.
Hina has now taken a break from the TV show Kasautii Zindagii Kay in which she played the role of Komolika. She will now be working on her Bollywood debut.
