Hina Khan said that she was disheartened that she did not get an invite to the India Pavilion. The actress told Anupama Chopra that she was not jealous or envious of her colleagues or actresses who were there. She pointed out that the pavilion was not just for Bollywood but also had musicians and other people. She said, “I could have been in the audience at least. I loved that Ghoomar video. I felt so proud to see my country being represented so beautifully. I am a proud Indian.” The actress said she did not blame anyone but understood that elitism was far more deep-rooted than anyone could imagine.
The actress also spoke about how the disrespect for TV actors was rampant all over. She remembered her old statement where she said that TV actors were equated with mazdoors (daily laborers) just because they worked long hours, and for months. “I do not see this kind of disrespect anywhere else. Actors elsewhere get an equal amount of respect no matter the medium. It is still an uphill journey for us,” she said. Hina Khan said she was optimistic that things would change and one day there did be equality in mindset.
