Unlock actor Hina Khan: Want to play a superhero character next like Wonder Woman
Popular actor Hina Khan’s latest film Unlock: The Haunted App released on ZEE5 on Saturday. Also starring Kushal Tandon, the film is a thriller, depicting the dark side of the web space. In an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com, the Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor opened up about her project, working during the lockdown and the three wishes that she would want to unlock for herself.
Here are some excerpts from the conversation
What is Unlock all about?
Unlock unveils the dark side of the digital space. The story focuses on my character Suhani who gets sucked into this dark space. Because she wants to fulfill some of her desires, she comes across the ‘Unlock’ app. What the app makes her do, is what the film focuses on. Shooting for Unlock was a very taxing experience. A lot of the scenes involved blood and some not-so-appealing scenarios, which really did take a toll on me. I honestly didn’t sleep well throughout the shoot as I was shooting such hard-hitting and heavy sequences.
When you do a dark role or project, does it get tough for you to get out of it? How do you switch off?
I take a break when I need to switch off from these kinds of roles. That’s the best way for me to unwind. The last time I wanted to unwind after my work, I had gone on a holiday.
