However, actress Hina Khan was not invited at the event. Recently, she opened up about it during her interview with Film Companion and expressed her disappointment.

She said, “We all belong to the same industry and we all have come here to represent India. I am very very excited about the launch of the poster of my film. Everybody knows I’ll be coming to launch my poster and I am from the Indian pavilion so I was very excited.” She added that there is an elitist system that still exists. “There was this opening ceremony and an event happened in the Indian pavilion, there was everyone, not just from Bollywood, but also singers too. I am proud of them but at the same time, it is disheartening that why I was not there,” Hina said.

She added that she could have been in the audience at least, cheering up for them. “They were doing ghoomar. I saw that video and I am proud of my country. I don’t blame the celebrities. I feel it’s the people on the field who act.” She concluded by saying that maybe next year she would be part of it.

Hina shared with IANS, "I thoroughly enjoyed this process of playing a cop. The approach was as real as it gets with real locations. I didn't have any makeup on and didn't have to think for a bit about what I am going to wear or how I am going to look. Because I was playing the character as a real life cop. And also I think actors are like sponges.”
