After having played a lead role in the Hindi television show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, and then becoming a contender on the hit reality TV show Bigg Boss 11 - Hina Khan has definitely left a mark in the television industry, and is now looking to expand her horizons.
According to a report by a weekly magazine, Hina is now looking forward to making her debut in Bollywood and is also on the lookout for a script for the same.
"I want to do good work--whether it is TV or films. I am reading scripts as far as films are concerned", she said in an interview. "So if something materialises, I would definitely like to take it up".
"As of now, I would like to take a break from reality shows. As far as TV and films are concerned, I am considering films to again take a leap of faith and take one step ahead in my career and see how it goes. You should never give up. You never know people have seen me in a different light for three months, so it might even click," said Hina.
Breaking out of the stereotyped role of playing a bahu on screen was a challenging task, revealed the actress, who walked the ramp as showstopper for Kolkata-based designer label Osaa by Adarsh at Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Spring-Summer 2018.

"When it is a one or two years long show, it is easy to move on (from a character), but for me, breaking that stereotype image was tough. However, I took it positively. I will not give up", she said.
Hina also believes that the show has helped her evolve, as a person. She said, "It has given me a lot of strength and made me a stronger person. As far as style is concerned, I experimented a lot in the show and people liked my looks. I was happy, so it's not over for me. I still have a long way to go."
