While promoting her new song with Shaheer Sheikh, Hina Khan during an interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan recalled her Cannes experience. She said, “I didn’t even have a gown to wear. In fact, when I was again going to walk, I was not supported by the designers in India. But now, things have changed. Now people look at me in a different light. When my team approaches a certain designer, they do respond, in a positive manner.” Hina walked the red carpet at Cannes in 2019 and met Priyanka Chopra there as well.

She further added, “I had no idea… All I knew was that I was going to attend the trailer launch of my film. I didn’t have an understanding of how big things would get. But it became huge, and then I realised how big of a deal it is. And an even bigger deal for me was receiving a text message from Priyanka Chopra, and I decided I would not go. I was so nervous.”

Talking about how Priyanka made her feel at home, Hina had written in an Instagram post, “An unexpected invitation by a world star.. personally, after I gained consciousness and prepared myself 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.”

Priyanka and Hina have shared a cordial relationship and have also expressed their gratitude to each other on social media ever since Hina’s Cannes debut in 2019. “Priyanka Chopra, I really like the way she picks these small, little things. I honestly don’t want to talk about it, but I want to add a little bit. She is such a busy woman, an entrepreneur, she is doing so many things. She sending me a text message after my father’s passing away, and such a long message. Not just a text message where you say ‘I am sorry, condolences’ and all,” Hina told Miss Malini.

Hina added, “because she understands what it is to lose a father. That was really special and heart-touching.”
