Hina Khan calls herself a ‘proud outsider’ making the magazine editor who ridiculed her Cannes 2019 appearance eat humble pie


Hina Khan who made a stunning debut yesterday at the Cannes International Film Festival 2019 gave a befitting reply to the film magazine editor who had ridiculed her appearance at the prestigious event. Hina shared a tweet on social media where she called herself a “proud outsider” who will continue to work hard to make her own place.

The magazine editor had commented on her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival and wrote on his Instagram story, “Cannes has suddenly become Chandivali Studios kya?" which drew much ire and anger from a host of TV fraternity members including Ekta Kapoor, Farah Khan and Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel.

The magazine editor later apologized for his remark and wrote that he was misconstrued. He wrote that he has always been appreciative of talent and his comment meant that Cannes has become Bollywood centric. Check out his apology post below.

Hina made a sparkling debut at the Cannes red carpet in a gown by Lebanese designer Ziad Nakad. She will launch the first look of her film Lines and is also a speaker at the India Pavilion fest.
