Hina Khan who has been raiding the television screens for her sassy avatar as Komolika in the reboot of Kasautii Zindagii Kay, might be set to make her big Bollywood debut soon. While this year has been successful for television stars like Mouni Roy who featured opposite Akshay Kumar in Gold and Karishma Tanna alongside Ranbir Kapoor in Sanju, it seems that Hina will also star in a movie now.
Hina who is a household name through her famous character Akshara that she portrayed in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is soaring in both popularity. Since then, she was in Bigg Boss season 11 and then she even featured in a music video of singer and rapper Sonu Thukral. Currently, her Komolika role in the Ekta Kapoor serial is doing rounds and fans can’t get over her shrewd avatar.
A source close to the development revealed some details about her role as well.
She will play a responsible and independent girl. The story is set in Kashmir in the 90s. Veteran actress Farida Jalal will play her grandmother.
Hina herself confirmed the news and said,
It’s a female-centric story. I also love the fact that it’s set in a time and place, where we are away from the hustle and bustle of city life, technology, daily rush and competition. I am also thrilled about challenging myself in a brand new medium.
A lot of fans were miffed that Hina Khan’s character has been missing from KZK for a large part of the narrative. But she took to clear the air about the same.
I had prior commitments and the production house was informed about it before I was even signed on to play Komolika. Since the show hasn’t even completed six months, the makers didn’t want my track to start. I will start shooting for the show immediately after my film’s shoot.
For all those craving for more Komolika on screen, she will be back soon. And of course, as Komolika is known to do she will appear in Prerna and Anurag’s life to create havoc when you least expect it!
