However, she made heads turn when she walked the Cannes 2019 red carpet taking social media by storm.
The actress was seen making a dazzling appearance at the 72nd Cannes International Film Festival where she was seen wearing a beautiful embellished gown with dramatic sleeves.
Soon after Hina Khan’s photos from the Cannes 2019 red carpet surfaced on the web, a famous magazine editor had taken to his Insta story to take a dig and mock her walk at the prestigious film festival. Once Filmfare Editor Jitesh Pillai had taken to his Instagram stories to share Hina Khan’s photos from her red carpet walk and called it a ‘Chandivali Studios’.

Cannes is Chandivali or Chandivali is going to Cannes?”
