Actress Hina Khan whose father passed away on Tuesday night, arrived in Mumbai. The 33-year-old, who was shooting in Srinagar, was spotted at Mumbai airport.

As Hina rushed to her car, she was surrounded by the paparazzi hounding her for pictures. Filled with grief, Hina requested the shutterbugs to let her go.

Producer and former Bigg Boss contestant Vikas Gupta shared the video of the same and wrote, “Someone has lost their father and is requesting you to let her go to her family but still someone shouts ‘face pe light maar’ and the pap doesn’t stop. @eyehinakhan was still being courteous extremely disappointed with the insensitivity shown here. RIP Uncle.”

According to reports, Hina’s father died of cardiac arrest.

Last year, Hina's show "Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai" completed 12 years. In the show, she was seen playing the title role of Akshara.

Khan, who shot to fame with her debut fiction role in the mega soap, says the response she received for the role still overwhelms her after all these years.

"After 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai' and Akshara came into my life, it definitely changed things around for me," recalls Hina. "People associated me so strongly with the show and character that it did become a name in every household. The love, appreciation and positive response I received for the role is something that overwhelms me till date," shares the actor, who had a fruitful eight-year-long run with the show.

Over the past 12 years, she has walked the Cannes red carpet, been a reality TV star on ‘Bigg Boss’ and ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’, had her brush with Bollywood and has also cemented her status as one of the highest paid stars on Indian television.
