Hina Khan will be making her debut woman-centric movie, to be directed by Hussain Khan, written by Rahat Kazmi and Shakti Singh.
In conversation with a leading Indian newspaper, the actress says:
“It’s a female-centric story. I also love the fact that it’s set in a time and place, where we are away from the hustle and bustle of city life, technology, daily rush and competition.
I am also thrilled about challenging myself in a brand new medium.”
Apart from a new medium, Hina is also challenging herself to acquire new skills. For this movie, Hina is learning to ride a bike.
It is also believed that the popular actor will be sharing screen space with veteran actor, Farida Jalal.
Whilst she is busy pursuing a Bollywood career, the actress is currently on a break from TV and her show Kasautii Zindagii Kay but will be back after shooting for the movie is complete.
“I had prior commitments and the production house was informed about it before I was even signed on to play Komolika.
Since the show hasn’t even completed six months, the makers didn’t want my track to start and then disappear for a bit. I will start shooting for the show immediately after my film’s shoot.” she said.
Bigg Boss 11 has proved to be the turning point for Hina Khan who has worked in a variety of projects since then.
But more than Bigg Boss, for which she became a runner-up, her drastic makeover and weight loss helped transform her on-screen image.
Hina who played Akshara in daily soap Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai for close to eight years, quit the show to try her luck in the reality show circuit – hence she also participated in Khatron Ke Khiladi.
Recently, she was seen in a glam avatar in a music album. She was noticed by soap czarina Ekta Kapoor and was offered the role of iconic vamp Komolika in the reboot of Kasautii Zindagii Kay.
Now, the actress is all set to get launched in Bollywood… Definitely an impressive journey!
