New Delhi: Television star Hina Khan is one of the top actresses in industry today. She walked the red carpet at Cannes and made heads turn with her glamorous looks. Recently, in an interview with Anupama Chopra at Cannes, Hina said that she was ‘disheartened’ at not being invited to the opening ceremony at Cannes 2022 Indian pavilion and called out the ‘elitist system’ that still exists in the entertainment business.
Hina quoted, “You know we all belong to the same industry. We are from the entertainment business. We all have come here to represent India. And I am very excited for the launch of the poster of my film. They know I’ll be coming to the India Pavilion. I will be launching the poster of my film. I was very excited then came the news of…Before that I’d like to tell you there’s this elitist system, elitist game which still exists. There’s the opening ceremony that happened in the Indian Pavilion. Everyone was there..all the talents, my contemporaries, not just from Bollywood, we had singers, we had many well-known talents. It’s not that I envy them. I am so proud of them. But at the same time it was disheartening that I was not there.”
“I could have been in the audience at least cheering up for them when they were doing the ghoomar. I felt so proud of my country. I don’t blame the actors or celebs but it’s the people on the field who make it possible. I don’t want to blame my contemporaries. We all talk about women empowerment, equality but I think it’s easier said than done. Probably next year when I come to Cannes, I will be a part of it,” she added.
Further, she said, “I am welcomed and at the same time, it is tough as well to create your own place and space. Sometimes you may not be allowed to enter a certain space, so you have to create your own table and seat. It is very difficult from the background I come from. I am still slapped with ‘she is a television star’. Not that she is an actor from India. It does happen. But I am happy with my journey.”
