Hina Khan made it to the 72nd edition of the much coveted Cannes Film Festival this year. Needless to say, her fans and well wishers are extremely proud of her. The first look of her debut film, Lines was unveiled at the festival – and we couldn’t be any happier for her.
She has, after all, made it there on her own achievements with no prior international stardom. Now that’s what we call starting with a bang! Amirite? Apart from walking the red carpet looking like a million bucks, Hina also got a chance to chill with the crème de la crème, a.k.a Priyanka Chopra and her husband, Nick Jonas.
It was, no doubt, a major moment of the actress’ life and she poured her feelings in a heartfelt note, dedicated to PeeCee. She stated how she was so overwhelmed by the actress’ humble and gracious nature and also spoke about TV actors not getting their due.

An unexpected invitation by a world star.. personally, after I gained consciousness and prepared my self to finally make it, I was still an outsider but only until you arrived. You didn’t need to, but still never left my hand for a second, introduced me to the people I probably wouldn’t have met and I felt as if all the achievements of my little career happening in fast forward as you present me as a star to each one of them. You somehow know everything ..as you mentioned my debut film and praised me for my hard work and appreciated me for the risks I have taken in my choices. Yes I have taken risks and I am still taking them, whr I almost have everything in my television career ..position,power,money everything.. But someone has to start somewhere I believe.. I always wanted to break the stereotypes and prove it to the world that television actors have it all.. Give us the opportunity our fare share and we will kill it..Not easy at all I know.. But ya I will keep trying keep working hard and make it possible.. I REPEAT TELEVISION HAS IT ALL.. Talent, Glamour, Elegance, Beauty, Grace, Right attitude , and Professionalism.. I am taking baby steps, And I will keep doing that no matter how much criticism one has to face and I will make my own place I promise.. we will face it and win over it as long as we are together.. Hearfelt Gratitude to each one of you for standing by me🙏 WE HAVE IT ALL GUYS.. With my first debut film called LINES, I am trying hard very hard to erase the lines created between talents and mediums 🙏And coming back to @priyankachopra your inclusiveness surpasses my ability of comprehension. Your deliberate attempt to lift up people around you not for their backgrounds but their talent is one of a kind. You are a walking inspiration! When a human being is a personification of an idea of self belief, Grace , humility, substance and greatness, that person can only be you priyanka Chopra You are already the best version of my dream self in the future I want and I believe thousands others like me do too. This is the Priyanka Chopra who believes in lifting others and growing together🙏 you are a sweetheart @nickjonas #AnOutsider #FromTelevisonToCannes
This is just the beginning, Hina! It’s only onwards and upwards from here. Also, did we mention we are very proud of you?!
