Several TV actors including Sumona Chakravarti, Arjun Bijlani and producer Ekta Kapoor had shown support for her. Even Salman Khan had spoken in her defence at an event. “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,” he said.

Hina also attended a Chopard party hosted by Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas at Cannes along with Bollywood actors including Diana Penty and Huma Qureshi. Thanking Priyanka for inviting her to the party, Hina wrote on Instagram, “An unexpected invitation by a world star.. personally, after I gained consciousness and prepared my self 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.”
