Today, Shehnaaz Gill enjoys a massive fanbase around the world. Shehnaaz is ready to make her Bollywood debut with the film Bhaijaan, which also stars Salman Khan. She is all set to star in Rhea Kapoor’s next film with Anil Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar.
While professionally Shehnaaz has grown by leaps and bounds, in personal life, she faced a setback last year with the untimely death of Sidharth Shukla, who was her Bigg Boss 13 co-contestant and good friend. The actor spoke about dealing with grief of Sidharth’s death and how it only made her stronger.
Shehnaaz, in a recent interview, said that she understands people would have called her very weak if she got emotional in front of them. She discussed about how she overcame her loss by dealing with it by herself. “Duniya ke aage roge to log bolenge sympathy gain kar rahe (The world will feel I am trying to gain sympathy if I would cry in front of them). People would consider you weak and I never want to come across as one. However, I have never tried to hide my emotions. I dealt with it myself and I am fine with it absolutely,” she said.
Shehnaaz Gill said that she has become stronger when being asked about if she has seen some changes in herself over the last year. She added, “I feel very strong today. Also, I think whatever happened has prepared me for everything. I have a belief that whatever will happen will be for the good for now.”
Shehnaaz Gill had released a music video “Tu Yaheen Hai” after Sidharth Shukla’s death as a mark of tribute for him. Many fans felt she was using his death for her promotion but some fans, who loved Sidharth and Shehnaaz’s bond, absolutely loved the gesture.
When asked about the trolling that she received on her song, Shehnaaz said she knows those people do not know the real story and that’s why she doesn’t bother about the negativity. “They don’t know anything so why should I feel bad? Honestly, I was set to resume work again, and before that, I wanted to do something for the person I respect the most. This was for me and my emotions before I get back to work. It’s okay what they feel as I wanted to do it from my heart,” she added.
