For Hina Khan meeting Priyanka Chopra at Cannes was "The Big achievement" - she talks about the "special attention" given by Priyanka
Television actress, Hina Khan disclosed that she had almost cancelled her appearance at a party at the Cannes Film Festival, at the last moment due to her nervousness over meeting Priyanka Chopra. Hina had walked the red carpet at Cannes in 2019, and met Priyanka Chopra at the prestigious international film festival.
Hina in an interview expressed how she got overwhelmed at the event, "I had no idea... All I knew was that I was going to attend the trailer launch of my film. I didn't have an understanding of how big things would get. But it became huge, and then I realised how big of a deal it is.”
She further added, “An even bigger deal for me was receiving a text message from Priyanka Chopra, and I decided I would not go. I was so nervous." She said that she was convinced to attend the party, and there was a mad rush to arrange clothes for her. "I arranged an outfit, got into an outfit, went and met her, and the rest was history."
The actress whose film ‘Lines’ was screened at the Cannes film festival, explained how she did not even have an outfit to wear at the high-profile event, and was unprepared for the magnitude of attention she got exposed to.
She disclosed to RJ Siddharth Kannan, "I didn't even have a gown to wear. In fact, when I was again going to walk, I was not supported by the designers in India. But now, things have changed. Now people look at me in a different light. When my team approaches a certain designer, they do respond, in a positive manner."
She explained how Priyanka made her feel at home, Hina had written in an Instagram post, “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.”
