Hina Khan walks the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week, completes transformation after Bigg Boss 11. See pics
Hina Khan is no longer the saree-clad, sindoor-toting TV bahu. The former Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor who made quite a splash in Bigg Boss 11 house has her eyes set on bigger goals and her appearance at the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Spring-Summer 2018 is a step in the right direction.
Hina walked as the showstopper for Kolkata-based designer label Osaa by Adarsh and felt it is a “privilege and just another baby step” that she is taking towards progress.
She played the leading role on her TV show but it was her stint in Bigg Boss 11 which gave her the tag of one of the most stylish divas of the small screen. Hina Khan says that it was not easy for her to move away from the image of a “bahu”.
“Honestly, it was a challenge for me. I never thought I will reach or achieve this goal so fast because breaking that stereotyped image of the ‘bahu’ that I played for eight years, where I wore all Indian clothes, was more difficult. I have done (one of the) longest running shows of Indian TV and it was difficult,” Hina said.
“When it is a one or two years long show, it is easy to move on (from a character), but for me, breaking that stereotype image was tough. However, I took it positively. I will not give up,” added the actor.
Hina’s stint in Bigg Boss has given her a style and image transformation, and she would like to take another leap of faith with films. “I want to do good work -- whether it is TV or films. I am reading scripts as far as films are concerned. So if something materialises, I would definitely like to take it up. As of now, I would like to take a break from reality shows. As far as TV and films are concerned, I am considering films to again take a leap of faith and take one step ahead in my career and see how it goes. You should never give up. You never know people have seen me in a different light for three months, so it might even click,” said Hina.
On how the show helped her evolve as a person, Hina said: “It has given me a lot of strength and made me a stronger person. As far as style is concerned, I experimented a lot in the show and people liked my looks. I was happy, so it’s not over for me. I still have a long way to go.”
But what about all the flak she received for her statements during the show? “Bigg Boss is not at all a scripted show, but a very well edited show. It’s a brilliantly edited show. You see something, you react so whosoever said whatever... I don’t blame anyone...”
