I didn't get cast because I am Dusky: Hina Khan

Talking to ETimes, Hina said that she could not crack a project because she did not look Kashmiri, “There are times where I probably don’t like the story or I don’t want to do that kind of a character for the time being, but they’re also are times where you probably test for it, and you are very keen that it works, but it doesn’t work out for various reasons. I can’t talk about the project, but I remember I could not crack a project because I didn’t look Kashmiri enough.

Hina further shared that even though she could speak fluent Kashmiri, she did not get cast because of her dusky complexion. “I am Kashmiri and I can fluently speak the language but I didn’t get cast because my complexion is dusky and I am not extremely fair. That’s what the team and character demanded. I really felt bad. When you know the language so well, probably you could have worked wonders in that character, but I didn’t get cast only because I don’t look Kashmiri (laughs). I never lose hope, I don’t give up. I keep trying!” shared Hina
