Hina Khan has always impressed the fashion police with her sense of style. The actress, on the occasion of Eid, has shared a few pictures, in which she is seen donning a beautiful golden and green salwar kameez paired with golden earrings. She looked gorgeous in the traditional outfit. The actress also wished her fans, 'Eid Mubarak' on the social media. In an interview to TOI, the actress revealed her festival plans. She seemed excited and also recalled memories of Srinagar, her hometown.
When the actress was asked about her plans, she told TOI, "I want to dress up this time! I want to recreate my childhood memories. When we were younger, we would love to dress up. But now being a celebrity, you know how much we dress up regularly, so that kind of takes away the charm. Haan, chalo, phirse, roz hi karte hain! But this time, I really want to make an effort and dress up. We will have khana together, we will have sheer khurma and a good lunch."
Hina Recalls Srinagar Memories
"I have many childhood memories of Eid. I remember, jo chhoti Eid abhi gayi, we used to wait for the chand and wish ki kisi tarah se chand dikh jaye, so that we could wear our new dresses the next day. We used to wear new clothes, new shoes and carry new bags. It used to be super fun comparing and competing with cousins for being the best dressed."
“The Most Important Thing Was Eidi”
The actress adds, "Then the most important thing was eidi. We used to look forward to it, ki kaun kitne paise de raha hai and also do a lot of jhol in eidi. If someone would give us Rs 500, we used to tell mom that we got only Rs 200. We would do this and keep the extra money with ourselves."
The Actress Adds…
"The entire family has to sit together and it is very elaborate - you have tea, coffee, a variety of pastries. We used to hog in the morning and the guests would keep coming throughout the day."
"We used to wait for guests to come and hum saare cousins glue ki tarah un ke saath baith jate thay. Aur phir khane lagte thay. Mom used to say ki abhi aur bhi guests aane wale hain, kyun itna kha rahe ho? We knew that she would not be able to say anything in front of the guests, so we used to eat with them as well!"
Hina Is Proud To Live In A Country Where All Festivals Are Celebrated With The Same Energy!
Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actress says that in Mumbai, people come home the day after Eid to greet them, since everyone is busy! The actress says that although she is a Muslim, her favourite festival is Holi. She adds, "Being in Mumbai, you don't feel like you are not close to your people, yahan par religion is not a barrier. I am proud of the fact that we live in a country where all festivals are celebrated with the same energy."
