After stealing hearts with her stunning outfit at the Cannes red carpet, Hina Khan had a "fangirl" moment when she posted selfies with Priyanka Chopra Jonas calling her "a walking inspiration".
The 31-year-old who made a debut at the red carpet was invited for the after party by Priyanka Chopra. By posting pictures, Hina was all praises for PeeCee as she expressed her gratitude towards the 'Desi Girl' in a long note on her Instagram.
"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. Yes, I have taken risks and I am still taking them, whatever I almost have everything in my television career ..position, power, money everything. But someone has to start somewhere I believe. I always wanted to break the stereotypes and prove it to the world that television actors have it all.," Hina wrote.
"Give us the opportunity our fair share and we will kill it.Not easy at all I know.. But ya I will keep trying keep working hard and make it possible.. I REPEAT TELEVISION HAS IT ALL.. Talent, Glamour, Elegance, Beauty, Grace, Right attitude, and Professionalism. I am taking baby steps, And I will keep doing that no matter how much criticism one has to face and I will make my own place I promise.. we will face it and win over it as long as we are together. Heartfelt Gratitude to each one of you for standing by me WE HAVE IT ALL GUYS... With my first debut film called LINES, I am trying hard very hard to erase the lines created between talents and mediums," she added.
Praising PeeCee and calling her "a walking inspiration", she wrote, "And coming back to Priyanka Chopra your inclusiveness surpasses my ability of comprehension. Your deliberate attempt to lift up people around you not for their backgrounds but their talent is one of a kind. You are a walking inspiration! When a human being is a personification of an idea of self-belief, Grace, humility, substance and greatness, that person can only be you, Priyanka Chopra. You are already the best version of my dream self in the future I want and I believe thousands of others like me do too. This is the Priyanka Chopra who believes in lifting others and growing together, you are a sweetheart."
In the pictures the 'Bigg Boss' finalist was spotted sharing a close bond with PeeCee and the beautiful note written by Hina will surely melt hearts.
In the first picture, the 'Kasautii Zindagii Kay' actor can be seen wearing a black top with work on the shoulders while Priyanka is looking ravishing in red and black outfit. In one of the pictures, fans can also spot Nick Jonas, who also seemed to share a good rapo with Hina.
The diva made a spectacular entry at the red carpet where she had heads turn with her grey gorgeous grey heavily embellished and stonework gown with a plunging neckline, long trail and dramatic sleeves by designer Ziad Nakad. She accessorized her outfit with simple diamond studs.
It was a proud moment for the actor who is all set to make her first debut in Bollywood with the movie 'Lines'. The poster of the film was unveiled at the mega event. Giving her fans a glimpse about her character "Nazia" in the film, Hina shared the first look of the poster on Instagram and wrote, "Emotions don't change because of the borders in between, the life and plight of Nazia is a simple portrayal of any girl who faces the magnitude of ordinary challenges in a not so ordinary story.
#Lines is my debut in films.
I hope you all love it as much as we loved it.
This is the first look launched at Cannes and an official poster which depicts more than a poster can!"
