The actress will soon be seen in an upcoming web-show titled Damaged 2. It is a psychological crime drama with supernatural elements. Talking about her character Gauri Batra in the series, Hina says, “Gauri is a complex person. She is burdened by her secrets and that has caused her to smoke and be dependent on alcohol, which prevents her from being in her senses.”

Since her character smokes a lot, Hina decided to smoke in a couple of scenes to maintain authenticity. “I am strictly against smoking and have been very outspoken about it. However, the show required me to smoke for a few scenes. Since I have asthma, my director was concerned about me. However, to maintain authenticity, I did smoke and the experience strengthened my resolve to never smoke or let any of my loved ones smoke in real life. For a non-smoker, smoking in front of the camera is one of the toughest parts of acting,” she concludes.

Praising the talented actress, director Ekant Babani says, “Hina is a thorough perfectionist and very sporting about having to shoot the smoking scenes for Damaged 2, even though she does not support smoking.”

Besides Hina Khan, Damaged 2 also stars Adhyayan Suman in the lead role. The series will be available to stream on Hungama Play soon.
