Let's take a moment to appreciate Hina Khan for her stupendous journey without any internalised help. She has been an outsider who has done better work and has more credit to her than any INSIDER has.

In a swift move on Thursday, the television industry, which is one of the biggest backbone of our economy, came together to stand united {something our Hindi film industry needs to learn} against an ignorant and loose comment made on Hina Khan, who made a dazzling Cannes debut this year donning a Ziad Nakad gown. For those unversed, Hina is in the French Riviera to represent her movie Lines. Like a true diva, the actress waved and smiled making us forget that this is only her first time at the coveted film festival, a feat that literally very few have managed to achieve. 

While everyone including non-fans were impressed with her show, a few picked up on Hina for making it there. "When did Cannes suddenly become Chandivali studio" is all that was needed to kick-start a healthy debate on the treatment accorded to an artist who has worked on television by the 'so-called' elite sections of media who report films and film stars. From Arjun Bijlani to Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli, everyone came out to support the actress, boasting of her achievements in the last decade and surviving the heat without a 'godfather', again a feat not many can take credit for. 

Before we count the number of achievements by Hina, let's make sure Chandivali studio, situated in Andheri East, is never looked down upon. The studio nurtures many television shows and sees a number of artists who work for over 14-15 hours to ensure daily entertainment. It is NOT an easy job. It is tough, sometimes even more than making films. But, everyone does it with finesse because television is the heartbeat of many. 

Now, let's take a moment to appreciate Hina for her stupendous journey without any internalised help. She has been an outsider who has done better work and has more credit to her than any INSIDER has. Making her debut in 2009 with Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Hina won many hearts for her portrayal of the character of Akshara and continued to do so for over seven years. Yes, that kind of loyalty and attachment is a rarity. For whatever reasons, the actress bid a goodbye to the show only to witness a 360-degree turn with her gym videos and pics, to becoming a bonafide fashionista. 

She participated in Bigg Boss 11 and was never the one to disguise her true self. She garnered a lot of hatred as well but her being real on the show made her a darling of the television. She also was a runner up of the series Khatron Ke Khiladi where she made sure to not let herself down and perform each task with determination. 

After this, the actress signed Kasautii Zindagii Kay to play the iconic role of Komolika. She redefined television fashion as Komolika and there are no qualms about it. Amid this, she made her music video debut with Sonu Thukral's Bhasoodi. She also shot for Ankoosh Bhatt's short film 'SmartPhone' opposite actor Kunaal Roy Kapur in between and recently shot for a music video with Priyank Sharma. 

The actress also has a movie with Vikram Bhatt, which she will begin shooting for from this June. If that is not enough, the actress has shown her singing prowess at multiple platforms. 

All of these achievements in 10 years are two times an average actor who has been working in films. 

Of course, apologies have been offered but that hardly changes the fact that TV continues to be treated as the second cousin to Bollywood and it is high time that it changes!

Thank God, unlike us, Cannes doesn't differentiate between artists based on the medium, all they respect is talent and your body of work, a thing we must perhaps learn. Food for thought?

".... When did Cannes suddenly become Chandivali studio ...."
This line was posted by Jitesh Pillai on his Instagram moments. Where Arjun Bijlani , soon blasted this motu Jitesh Pillai about his assault.

Paid PR- give us a break. So much arrogance.

lol omg. she looks better than kangana, dp and pc!!!

really really FED UP of all Hina Khan PAID articles on PV! Who is she, again?? Akhara n BB runner up, right??

Actually who is she? Have never heard of her in any movies.

why is she even there ? What are her achivements?

True! she does not even deserve to be an actress! she is pathetic

Shows in the comments how nobody calls out when there are multiple articles about the barely adult starkids or not even a film old” fashionistas”. I am sure these people who comment have never known hardwork and do not understand others who do it

Smriti Irani or Sakshi tanwar or Shweta tiwari are bigger TV actresses and legends who could have been there to represent the talented indian TV industry but nope! A trashy talentless nangi ho gets sent there!

she has the worst soul & she is a witch in human form
