Sharing the video, Hina wrote, "When life gives you lemons... don’t wait to make that lemonade! But what if you can’t differentiate between lemons and oranges ? I probably had the potential and did jump on to grab the opportunity the first time I was offered but I never planned on it. I have always been instinctively spontaneous. But it was the mix of courage, consistency and competitiveness that made me choose the right fit for my career at every single step. And I can not elaborate enough.. words would not do justice to the respect and gratitude that I have for all the people who have liked my craft, appreciated my work and encouraged me to persistently pursuit my passion. The completion of 12 years into this journey is not just a celebration of all the projects I managed to do or the achievements that became iconic landmarks. It is also about the warmth and bond that I have with you .. my appreciators .. my fans. I am nothing without this invaluable encouragement and You make it worthwhile.. every single day ...and I hope to always have that special connection with all of you. #12GloriousYears #HinaKhan."
