Actress Hina Khan opened about her journey from growing up in Srinagr to making it big in the entertainment industry in Mumbai in a recent interview. Hina shared that her parents were reluctant to send her to Delhi for higher education a decade back and acting was never an option for her.
In fact, she moved to Mumbai without telling her parents at 20. Her relatives and family friends cut ties with her parents due to her unconventional choice. Her parents moved to Mumbai to balance things out but all in vain. Hina went on to become a household name in the country with shows like Bigg Boss and Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai in her kitty. She also walked the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival.
Another hurdle in her life was to break the news of her relationship with Rocky Jaiswal, a non-muslim to her parents. While they were in shock initially, her parents gave in and now love Rocky more than her, Hina said.
