Fans and followers of Shehnaaz Gill have been pouring love and affection for her tragic loss, since past some time. Being a close companion of the late actor and Big Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla, the actress is having a tough time coping with the phase.
To overcome the grief after her close friend and rumored boyfriend Sidharth Shukla’s demise, Shehnaaz Gill was staying indoors to take some space from the world. She recently resumed her work, almost after a month of Siddharth’s funeral, and is currently promoting her film ‘Honsla Rakh’ along with co-actors Diljit Dosanjh and Sonam Bajwa.
