Actor-singer Shehnaaz Gill opened up about the most ridiculous rumour about herself that she heard. She said that there were reports about her relationship ending and added that it ‘will never happen’.
Shehnaaz was rumoured to be dating late actor Sidharth Shukla, who died in September of a suspected heart attack. Last week, she shared a tribute song for him, titled Tu Yaheen Hai. The music video included footage of them together, from Bigg Boss 13.
During the recent promotions of her Punjabi film Honsla Rakh, Shehnaaz told Zoom about a rumour she heard about herself that made her laugh. “They said I had a break-up. That will never happen,” she said.
Shehnaaz Gill never admitted to being in a relationship with Sidharth. The two grew close on Bigg Boss 13 and made headlines for their displays of affection but maintained that they were just good friends. They also called each other ‘family’.
Talking to Hindustan Times, former Bigg Boss contestant Pavitra Punia said that Sidharth and Shehnaaz Gill relationship was no less than that of a husband and wife. “Aaj main jab Shehnaaz ko dekthi hoon, toh rooh kaanp jaati hai (When I see Shehnaaz today, it shakes my very core). People dream of having a pure bond like they had. I wouldn’t say it was dosti (friendship) or boyfriend-girlfriend. Yeh rishta pati patni se kam nahin tha (Their relationship was no less than that of a husband and wife). After Soni-Mahiwal, Romeo-Juliet, people will remember Sidharth-Shehnaaz,” she said.
Last month, Sidharth’s swansong Habit was released online. He died before the shoot of the music video could be completed. The video also featured Shehnaaz Gill . Apart from Habit, they have starred together in music videos such as Bhula Dunga and Shona Shona.
