The actress, who was recently declared as the first runner-up of Khatron Ke Khiladi 8 told The Indian Express: "Of course I will miss partying and celebrating but then it's just a birthday and I am sure my friends and family will shower their love and blessings from wherever they are. I really need it a lot this year."
Before entering the Bigg Boss house, Hina also posted a video, in which she thanked all those who sent wishes and love on her birthday.
Here's what she had posted on Instagram:
Hina Khan is popularly known for playing Akshara in Star Plus' show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Hina's co-stars Rohan Mehra and Karan Mehra participated in Bigg Boss last season. When asked if she discussed her game strategies with them, Hina told The Indian Express: "I did have a conversation with Rohan but since both of us are different personalities, our thought processes are quite different. Also, I had a long discussion with Lopamudra Raut(Bigg Boss 10 contestant), who was my co-contestant in Khatron Ke Khiladi and had performed exceptionally well in Bigg Boss last time. Being a girl, she helped me clear out my fears and doubts.
Gauhar Khan, who is a dear friend and the winner of Bigg Boss 7 also encouraged me. Interestingly, all of them suggested me the same things- be real, be yourself and stand up whenever required. So I guess am good to go now," reports The Indian Express.
Apart from Hina Khan, other contestants of Bigg Boss 11 include names like Hiten Tejwani, Akash Dadlani, Zubair khan, Shilpa Shinde and Benafshah Soonawalla, who is also celebrating her birthday today.
Colors TV and Bigg Boss official page posted a couple of videos and pictures on Twitter from the Bigg Boss house, in which Hina and Benafshah can be seen celebrating their birthdays and relishing the cake with other contestants.
