Hina Khan likes to have a balanced diet – and her Instagram is proof of that. On a regular basis, we see him indulging in fatty and perishable biryani and mutton curry, which he balances with healthy salads, smoothies and drinks (and of course regular exercise). Even though he is on leave, there is no difference in his diet. Hina Khan is currently in Egypt, vacationing with boyfriend Rocky Joycewal. If you scroll through his Instagram, you’ll see the actor experimenting with the best of Egyptian cuisine – we see him indulging in kushari (Egyptian fried rice), falafel and more. However, Hina has kept fruits and healthy drinks clean and balanced in her diet. One such drink was Hibiscus tea, which was part of Hina’s diet when she was in Egypt. Take a look at one of her recent Insta-stories with her cup of hibiscus tea.
