Hina Khan and Rohan Shah starrer Hacked released today. The film is directed by Vikram Bhatt and marks the Bollywood debut of the Kasautii Zindagii Kay actor. Hacked is a psychological thriller in which Hina plays the role of Sam, a chief editor at a fashion magazine. Rohan Shah’s character Vivek lives in her neighbourhood who is obsessed with her.
Vivek’s character in the film hacks Hina Khan aka Sam’s life after she rejects him. The film tells us what destruction the internet and obsession can lead to. In an interview with Koimoi, Hina Khan was asked if playing Sam affected her mentally.
The actress said, “I got really affected. When you will see the film, you will realise the steps she takes in the film are heartbreaking. It broke my heart. I as Hina would never do this what Sam is going through and what she does later on.”
She added, “It kind of broke me completely. I broke down and these guys came and said it’s just a film. But through the film, we are trying to show the reality of what people are facing. We don’t know about it, we don’t get to know about it because people don’t want to talk about it.”
Rohan Shah said, “Playing this character was liberating to me because you always suppress these negative emotions. With Vivek, I could explore and the aggression came out.”
Hina Khan also revealed that she was skeptical to say yes to Hacked in the beginning and shares the reason for the same. Watch the video to catchj the full interview.
