      In an interview with ETimes TV, Hina Khan said that she can speak the Kashmiri language fluently but despite having all the qualities, she was rejected due to her dusky complexion. While speaking about her way of dealing with rejections, the actress said, "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 there are also 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 stated that she never loses hope and keep trying. "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," the actress added.
