‘Bigg Boss 13’ is considered one of the most trendy seasons of all time. The show was known for its controversial behavior, and the contestants were allowed to talk to each other for up to 15 minutes. Shehnaaz Gill was the co-contestant of the season, and her performance earned her second place.

The actress has become an extremely popular figure on social media. Shehnaaz is a Punjabi Jatt who comes from a non-film background. She had an emotional breakdown last year.

However, she has since recovered. She is now working as an actress and has reportedly hiked her remuneration for brand endorsements.

Shehnaaz is known for her candid nature and has garnered a huge fan following on social media. The actress has starred in several music videos after her stint on Bigg Boss. She has also been a part of many Punjabi films.

Known for his performances in films like Kawela and Kala Shah Kala, Shehnaaz Gill is an Indian model and actress. Her appearance in Punjabi movies earned her a huge fan base.

She has also participated in the reality show Bigg Boss 13. Gill is ready to make her Bollywood debut with Salman Khan. She has also shot a film with Diljit Dosanjh.

Despite their popularity and successful careers, Himanshi Khurana and Shehnaaz are in a skirmish. Their fight involves insults, feedback, and body shaming. They are not in touch.

Before entering the reality show Bigg Boss 13, Himanshi and Shehnaaz had a long-running rivalry. The two met on the sets of the Punjabi movie Keh Gayi Sorry, where they sang a duet. However, the feud began even before the film’s release.

The two appeared together on Bigg Boss 13, but their relationship was not smooth. When Himanshi entered the house as a wild card contestant, Shehnaaz was visibly upset. She tried to greet Himanshi but was ignored.

Shehnaaz later questioned why Himanshi unfollowed Jassie Gill, a fellow contestant. However, Shehnaaz said she followed Himanshi on Twitter before the controversy but didn’t know why.

Social media is buzzing that Shehnaaz will be gracing the show Bigg Boss 16. She again appeared as a guest in Weekend ka Vaar with MC Square to promote their new song, Ghani Sayani. 

Shehnaaz Gill & Sidharth Shukla Love Commence in Bigg Boss 13

#SidNaaz’s relationship is as real as it can be. There is no fakeness in their relationship. Still, fans are missing their chemistry.

In the beginning, everyone expects something else, and no one can think of Sidharth Shukla and Shehnaaz Gill‘s friendship in Bigg Boss 13.

The two clicked immediately once, and their amusing talks developed into a sweet friendship.

She cried in the confession room and missed him so much after the fight. That was the moment of turning the table and was one of the most memorable moments of the season.

Every time their friendship and the journey in the house become more intense, layered, and more complex.

Gill became his shield of Siddharth after the fight with Asim Riaz. Sidharth and the attractive model have a close brotherhood. Therefore the fallout emotionally impacted him.

Shehnaaz entered to fill the gap. But when it came to Sidharth, Sana kept her ego aside and pacified him every time.

Apart from some wicked arguments, they always patched up and stayed together. When they are together, they don’t need any other person.

Shehnaaz and Sidharth avoid using the word “love” and instead prefer “attachment.”

But Bigg Boss 13’s “love story” has been this tale of “attachment,” with its love, loyalty, friendship, raw honesty, and emotions.

They got the title of SidNaaz, and on social media, they got hyped with the tag # SidNaaz.

After Sidharth Shukla passed away, Shehnaaz Gill’s sorrow was evident. On social media, heartbreaking footage of the actress gained a lot of attention and sympathy. After experiencing a significant personal loss, Shehnaaz is gradually returning to normal and starting to work again.

Shehnaaz said she had lost all desire to live after dealing with negativity, suffering, and loss.

Shehnaaz remarked that she had improved her patience and outlook during the previous two years. Then said, “Those we love pass away. Based on my personal experiences, I don’t think we should have thought we should have been together longer. Instead, we ought to be proud of our shared memories.”

Shivani replied, “Everyone around us would be unhappy if we continued to be in agony. Not only will that, but the soul who has passed away also be troubled and uncomfortable.”

Shehnaaz spoke to Bollywood Bubble about coping with the tragic loss and said, “If you cry in public, people will think you are trying to win sympathy. You would be perceived as weak, and I never want to come across that way. I’ve never tried to conceal my feelings, though. I took care of it myself, and I’m fine with it.

After Sidharth Shukla passed away, Shehnaaz Gill produced the music video “Tu Yaheen Hai” as a memorial. Fans who admired Sidharth and Shehnaaz’s relationship appreciated the gesture, while many thought she was exploiting his passing to advance her career. The singer-actor remarked that she doesn’t worry about the negativity because she knows those people don’t know the whole situation when discussing the trolling she received.
