Emotionally, she says, "All glam is gone, and I'm ready for my first chemo in the hospital. Let's get better."

In her post, Hina wrote, "This award night, I knew about my cancer diagnosis, but I made a conscious choice to normalize it - not just for myself, but for all of us. This was the day that changed everything, marking the beginning of one of the most challenging phases of my life. So let's do some affirmations." She added, "We become what we believe in, and I have decided to take this challenge as an opportunity to reinvent myself, again. I have decided to keep the spirit of positivity as the first tool in my toolkit. I choose to normalize this experience for me and have consciously decided to manifest the outcome I desire. For me, my work commitments matter. For me, my motivation, passion, and art matter. I refuse to bow down."

Encouraging her fans with her resilient attitude, Hina continued, "I attended the event and went straight to the hospital for my first chemo. I humbly urge everyone out there to first normalize the challenges of your lives, then set goals for yourself and try to live up to them all along the way. No matter how hard. Never back down. Never give up." The video received supportive comments from fans and colleagues, including Dalljiet Kaur, Ektaa Kapoor, and Mouni Roy.
