Actor Hina Khan has opened up on her recent weight gain and the importance of mental wellness. The actor recently lost her father Aslam Khan due to a cardiac arrest in April.

Sharing a picture of herself in black gym wear, Hina wrote on her Instagram Stories, “I had put on some kilos in these months for obvious reasons and I really did not pay attention to how many kilos I put on... My mental health was way more important and I just wanted to be, wanted to do things that make me happy.”

She added, “Sometimes let yourself be, enjoy the little things, do what you like without thinking much about what people will say or how m I looking... After all one needs to be in the right frame of mind to do anything in life... And I chose mental health, my well-being, over my physical appearance... Now here I am, back in action". Hina also wrote, “Work in progress.”

In this life of utter chaos and movement you were my anchor and you still manage to hold me together."
