Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hain fame, Hina Khan had faced a major setback in her life, three months ago when she had lost her father, Aslam Khan, to cardiac arrest. At that time, Hina was busy shooting for one of her upcoming projects in Kashmir. However, when she got the news of his demise, the actress immediately flew down to Mumbai. Though it has been three months since his death, not a single day goes by when Hina doesn't miss him.
On July 20, 2021, Hina Khan had taken to her IG handle to drop three throwback pictures and expressed how difficult it is to accept his absence even after three months. She wrote, "Tumhaari khushi mai hi meri khushi He said, #Always The First one to clap for me (wholeheartedly) Miss the sparkle in your eyes Dad..Three Months Today 20th April 2021 DADDYS STRONG GURL This is what u always called me.. Not that strong to bear your loss Dad."
In an interview with Zoom Digital, Hina Khan's boyfriend, Rocky Jaiswal, talked about how her father's death had affected Hina and her family. Stating the same, he said, ''I can't find enough words to tell what she went through. Not many people know that she, I think, was devastated. She was shell shocked as anyone would be. Somebody like Hina who has been so close to her father, her father has handled everything in her life. And Hina was treated like a princess by him."
Going further in the interview, Rocky also explained that it was heartwrenching for him to see Hina in such a devasted state. He said, "It is just so heartwrenching to see her go through this. If she was her father's daughter, she is also her mother's daughter. And I must say both of them are very strong. Slowly and gradually, but very strongly they endured everything. They have come to this point whether they can at least go out. But when it happened, it was devastating for her and expectably so."
In the same interview, Rocky Jaiswal also stated that even he was very much disturbed hearing the news of Hina Khan's father's death as he had shared a very close-knit bond with him. He told the entertainment portal, "Even I was so affected because I was also close to him. We had so many conversations and chats. He and I used to talk about everything under the roof. Everything."
However, he thanked their fans and friends from the industry, who kept a constant check on her, which healed her more quickly. He added, "So it was a very difficult moment. And I must say everybody's love, all those fans who supported her, they messaged her, our friends - they were so kind and generous to this idea that she is fine and they still are. So I really appreciate it and I hope Hina gets to the normalcy."
For the unversed, Rocky and Hina had met when he was associated with Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hain, and the duo had made their relationship official when Rocky had proposed to her on Bigg Boss 11.
