Hina Khan is enjoying her time at Cannes. She has made her debut at Cannes Film Festival 2019 to promote her film Lines. She looked ravishing in a silver embellished gown and made us proud for representing India at a higher platform. While netizens went gaga over her look, there were evidently some who mocked Hina for a dress. However, an industry critic, Jitesh Pillai, put out a story on his Instagram handle which featured Hina’s debut on this year’s red carpet and ran it with a caption that read, “Cannes has suddenly become chandivali studios kya? (Has Cannes turned into Chandivali Studios?).”
There were several Bollywood and TV stars who expressed their thoughts and found the ‘Chandivali’ comment distasteful. The latest was from Salman Khan, who came out to show his support to the Bigg Boss contestant. While attending the launch of the song Zinda from his upcoming film Bharat, he was asked about the controversy. He said, “That’s very responsible of that editor to make a comment like that, so thoughtful. I don’t understand what did he want to say? Cannes is Chandivali or Chandivali is going to Cannes.”
Hina Khan also took to Twitter to give a befitting reply to the editor. She mentioned that she is proud of where she has come from and where she is going. Hina’s tweet read, “I was persistent, I m constant n I will b efficient again n again again. Don’t know where I belong, don’t know if I have to, as d Place don’t define me! Because as always I will work my a** off n I will make my own PLACE. My promise,a proud outsider from my Chandiwali studios. 🙏” (sic)
