Hina Khan, known as Akshara of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, took her final year exams for a Business Management degree a few months back, and despite being tied up with shooting at the time, she managed to do well.”I had trouble managing my shoot and the exams. At the time, I was shooting for a major bidaai sequence,â€ she says. â€œI shot from 8am to 6am the next day, because I wanted to finish some sequences in advance. I came home, immediately packed and left for Delhi to take my exams.â€
Hina still managed to get a distinction. â€œThe results are out and I scored 77 per cent. My family, the unit members and my co-stars all are happy for me. When I get time, Iâ€™ll celebrate with my friends.â€ Hina hopes to study further. â€œI always wanted to be a journalist, so I may opt for a journalism course. But I will take a break for a few months now,â€ she says. â€œAs a journalist you get to travel, you can explore world, you are well-informed, and you have different experiences. I want that.â€
As for the show, Hina says, â€œRight now, I am happily married. I am adjusting to new people and trying to manage in a new family. Everything is fine for now but there will be twist in the tale soon.â€
With Navratri season on, Hina plans to visit a few dandiyas this year, as she has never been to one. Though some organisers apparently approached her to perform at their events, Hina refused, and prefers to go on her own to enjoy the festival.
