But there's a saying, tough times don’t last, tough people, do. And I am, was and will always be my daddy’s strong girl. Send in your prayers please. Let there be light. Dua."
On October 30, 2020, Hina had shared a video, in which she had told her father that she has no debit or credit cards, and he had informed her that he has blocked all her cards. Hina, in a state of shock, had asked "You blocked all my cards, kyun? You can't be blocking all my cards. How do I shop? And what if I want to buy coffee?" To which, her father had said, "I will give you Rs 200 for the coffee, and you can take cash from me." Hina had then insisted him to return all her cards, but her father had said, "You will not be getting your cards." In this video, Hina’s father could be seen wearing the same t-shirt that Hina wore for her IG LIVE session.
We believe Hina Khan is a strong girl and she is dealing with this pain gracefully.
