Actress Hina Khan, who has carved a niche for herself with her acting skills and become a fashion icon of sorts by impressing onlookers with her chic sartorial choices, on Wednesday (October 20) took to her Instagram Stories and put out an inspiring message for her fans and followers. By stating that she chose her mental health over her physical appearance, Hina won the hearts of her fans all over again.
For the unversed, Hina Khan lost her father in April and the actress has since been going through an emotional upheaval. Mentioning in her post that people knew that she had put on some kilos for ‘obvious reasons’, Hina clarified that she did not ‘pay attention’ to how much weight she was gaining since her mental health was way more important to her. Hina said that she just wanted to be and wanted to do things that would make her happy. She also stated that one needs to be in the right frame of mind to do anything and that sometimes it is important to let go and not care about what people will think about looks.
Alongside her inspiring note, Hina Khan shared a selfie in a black sports bra and gym pants, showing that she was finally working on her physical health too.
“Had put on some kilos in these months for obvious reasons and I really did not pay attention to how many kilos I put on. My mental health was way more important and I just wanted to be, wanted to do things that make me happy. Sometimes let yourself be, enjoy the little things, do what you like without thinking much about what people will say or how am I looking. After all, one needs to be in the right frame of mind to do anything in life. And I chose mental health, my well being over my physical appearance. Now here I am, back in action,” Hina Khan wrote.
Hina added, ‘work in progress’ as a caption to the Instagram Story.
