In India, even though it’s Bollywood that reigns supreme when it comes to wielding influence, there’s another world which does an equally good job of influencing people — the world of Indian television! We can easily say that our Indian television world is the starriest one when compared to other television entertainment industries all over the world. Right from daily soaps that disseminate social messages to the comedy ones which make you forget the stress of the day, not to forget dazzling award functions — our television fraternity has it all.
Okay, now all that being said, who do you think is the most talked-about television industry celeb? In our opinion, it’s a certain attendee of the Cannes film festival. Got the name now? Yes, we’re talking about the femme fatale of the Indian television world, Hina Khan! There’s no doubt about how big a name she has become in the entertainment industry now. We all know she became a household name when she debuted on television in a daily soap. And then we saw how she upped her glam quotient which left everybody spellbound. And then came the shocker which left most of us in a pleasant state of shock when we found out that she’s making her red carpet debut at one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world, the Cannes! From a playing a bahu in a daily soap to this, it’s been one hell of a ride for Hina. Let’s have a look at this jaw-dropping transformation of Hina.
Being Akshara In Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai
She made her television debut with a daily soap titled, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, in 2008 on one of the most popular television channels in India. She played the role of a responsible bahu, a loyal wife, and a loving daughter — the perfect Bharatiya nari. Be it the young or the aged, everybody instantly connected with her character and fell in love with her. For eight long years, she was a part of this television show. And throughout that time, we saw her wearing the most traditional, Indian clothes. She then wanted to shed her bahu image and take a break from daily soaps. And when she quit the show to move on in her career, we’re sure that she sure did break many viewers’ hearts.
Her Stints In Reality Shows — Big Boss 11 And Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 8
After quitting daily soaps, Hina participated in reality shows in the year 2017. Her first reality show was Big Boss Season 11, where the actress displayed her stylish-best self and openly voiced her opinions, every time there was a fight inside the Big Boss house. Her emotional, yet bold nature was highlighted a lot in Big Boss. She went on to become the first runner-up of the show.
Hina loves challenges and this was one of the main reasons why she said yes to Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 8. She overcame most of her fears while performing daring stunts in this show, and won accolades for her persevering attitude. The show did a good job of showcasing her strength and capabilities.
Her Glam Avatar In Music Video
Soon after she got out of Big Boss 11, she chose to star in a music video. The video titled “Bhasoodi” is sung by Sonu Thukral and also features rapper Pradhaan in it. Just a day after its release, the video got 7.9 million views! She looked like a glam doll in the video, and the music video showed how much effort she’d put in to get out of the bahu bracket that she was stuck with for nearly a decade.
She Said “Nikaaa” In Her Comeback To Television
She made a comeback on the Indian television with a character of a vamp that was already quite legendary in the audience’s eyes—the characters of Komolika. And we must say she did complete justice to the character as she got into its skin as if she really was the big bad wolf! This was a part of season two of yet another iconic family daily soap, Kasautii Zindagii Kay.
No, she wasn’t seen as a bahu in this. She chose to up her glamour quotient in this character and looked extremely stunning and sultrous.
She Walked The Red Carpet At Cannes Like A Diva
We mean, are you kidding us? After years of being in the show business, Priyanka Chopra Jonas debuted in Cannes this year! And look at Hina Khan, with her very first film, she’s made a scintillating appearance on the red carpet. She is at the Cannes Film Festival for the screening of her own short film titled “Lines,” which is said to be based on Kargil war. Her shimmery grey outfit was designed by Ziad Nakad. She made head turn as she walked, very much in her element, smiling and waving at the crowd. Back home, her fellow TV actors congratulated her for her achievement.
Hina proved to everybody that if you think you’ve outgrown a position in your life, it’s okay to dream big, spread your wings, and fly higher. Here’s us congratulating Hina on her noteworthy achievements and wishing her more of such wonderful achievements in her life.
