Hina Khan, who played the lead role on television show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai for eight years (which she re-iterated several times on Bigg Boss 11, said that it was not easy to break away from the "stereotyped image of the bahu." After her character was written off, Hina Khan participated in Khatron Ke Khiladi and the in Bigg Boss 11.
"Honestly, it was a challenge for me. I never thought I will reach or achieve this goal so fast because breaking that stereotyped image of the 'bahu' that I played for eight years, where I wore all Indian clothes, was more difficult. I have done (one of the) longest running shows of Indian TV and it was difficult. 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 told IANS.
As of now, Hina Khan will stay away from reality shows. The actress told IANS that she's reading film scripts and will take the plunge when she finds the right one. "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," she said.
