Breaking her silence about life post-Sidharth Shukla’s death, Shehnaaz Gill said the tragedy has made her strong to face bigger challenges.
“Duniya ke aage roge to log bolenge sympathy gain kar rahe (If you cry in front of everyone, the world thinks you’re gaining sympathy). 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 told Bollywood Bubble.
“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.”
A ‘Bigg Boss 13’ contestant, she was reportedly in a relationship with late Sidharth Shukla. The chemistry between Sidharth and Shernaaz was the talk of the town during ‘Bigg Boss 13’.
“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 said.
Last week, seemingly fed up with link-up rumors, Shehnaaz Gill questioned the media for spreading lies.
‘’Media jhoot kyun bolta hai? Media har bar jhoot bolti hai kayi baar and kuch bi bolti hai. Aap inke sath khade ho to aap inke saath relation me ho? Hum kisi ke saath khade ho jayein ya kisi ke saath ghum lein toh relation mein hai? Nahin na…toh bas, media fizool bolti hai. Ab main hyper ho jaungi,” she told the media
This follows after rumors that Shehnaaz Gill is dating choreographer Raghav Juyal. The rumors sparked after their social media PDA caught netizens’ attention. Later, it was also reported that she went on a vacation to Rishikesh with Raghav.
On the work front, Shehnaaz will be seen in superstar Salman Khan’s Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. Directed by Farhad Samji, the film will be released on December 30, 2022. The cast includes Venkatesh Daggubati and Pooja Hedge and Sidharth Nigam. She will also be seen on Shilpa Shetty’s talk show.
For the fourth week in a row, Shehnaaz Gill retained her number one position among television celebrities.
