Hina Khan’s Cannes debut grabbed good attention and the actress even earned support from her well-wishers and industry folks when the Filmfare editor Jitesh Pillai criticized her. The actress very calmly gave it back to the man and even earned support from Priyanka Chopra, who not only invited her for the after-party, but also put up pictures, displaying that she is all for women empowerment.

At brand Ayesha event,  naturally, everybody was curious to know the thoughts running through the actress’ mind at the moment, considering everything happened like a dream. Elaborating on her Cannes debut and meeting with Priyanka Chopra, Hina said, “It was my dream to represent India and also represent the TV industry and do something outside my comfort zone. So, that is what I did. It was a very proud moment for me and the kind of response I received from India and internationally and even all you guys, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

When asked about the criticism and the subsequent support she received from people around her, Hina said, “I think this is for the first time that aisa kuch hua hai that everyone was united and I did not put out anything and I did not put out anything because I thought it's not necessary to react. For me, my pride, my happiness was more important. So, I was like let it be. But then, how everyone picked it up and it became something else only. Everyday I used to get up and see 10-20 people tweeting for me, people I never met, people I don't know. Maine kuch unke liye kiya nahi hai, lekin fir bhi log aage aaye. That shows ki abhi bhi hamari industry mein ekta hai, achche kaam ko aaj bhi taareef milti hai.”

Finally, we asked her experience of meeting Peecee, to which she replied, “I think my post says it all. The huge post that I had written on social media. And I couldn't write further because Instagram mein mujhe allow nahi kiya kyuki likhne ke liye mere paas aur bhi bohot kuch tha like what all she did for me and what all she taught me. We spoke alot, we shared alot and I think everything in my life has happened for a reason and meeting her, there was a reason that how humble people are when they reach there. Where she is today, she deserves to be there.”
