Hina Khan has achieved great success in her career, she became a household name after she played Akshara in the TV show, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. This was followed by the actress being seen on many TV fiction and non-fiction shows, she recently appeared in the music video, Main Bhi Barbaad. The actress was seen opposite Angad Bedi, the song grabbed attention for her style statement. Now in conversation in ETimes TV, she opened up about how she was once rejected for her dusky complexion.
Hina was rejected as she has dusky skin and the project had a narrative of Kashmiri girl. On being asked how she dealt with it she said, “There are times where I probably don’t like the story or I don’t want to do that kind of a character for the time being, but there also are times where you probably test for it, and you are very keen that it works, but it doesn’t work out for various reasons.”
Recalling the time she was rejected, she said, “I can’t talk about the project, but I remember I could not crack a project because I didn’t look Kashmiri enough. I am Kashmiri and I can fluently speak the language but I didn’t get cast because my complexion is dusky and I am not extremely fair. That’s what the team and character demanded.”
The actress was quite upset with it, as she also knew the language required for the role. “I really felt bad. When you know the language so well, probably you could have worked wonders in that character, but I didn’t get cast only because I don’t look Kashmiri (laughs). I never lose hope, I don’t give up. I keep trying!,” added Hina. ALSO READ: Hina Khan Pens An Emotional Note As She Dedicates An Award To Her Late Father; Says, 'It's You Who Made It Possible For Me To Come This Far'
