Shehnaaz Gill became a household name after her stint in Bigg Boss 13 and the singer-actress emerged as one of the strongest and most popular contestants of the season, with her bonding with co-contestant Sidharth Shukla, who famously came to be known as Sidnaaz together, becoming a highlight of the show. Even after it ended, the duo remained pretty close with each other and it was a huge shock for the entire nation when Sidharth passed away suddenly last year.

The demise of Sidharth Shukla affected Shehnaaz Gill a great deal, and in the process of grieving his loss, the singer released a single in his dedication titled Tu Yaheen Hai, after a while. While most people were moved by her dedication to the late actor, there were some who judged her for that as well, and in a recent conversation with Bollywood Bubble for Her Story, Shehnaaz opened up about the same.

When asked if people’s judgement on her song made her feel bad in any way, Shehnaaz responded, Nahi, kyunki logon ko story pata hi nahi hai kuch, to log kaise mujhe bol sakte hain. See, kya hota hai na, kisi bande ki tum bahut zyada respect karte ho, to mujhe kaam start karna tha dobara se apna, comeback karna tha. To, abhi tum jiski sabse zyada respect karte ho, agar tum uske liye kuch nahi karoge pehle, khud ke mann mein na, tumhara kaam kaise start hoga? To pehle respect and then start your work. To wo tha, aur kuch nahi. So, it’s okay. Jinko nahi pata, hum kyun dukh manayein us cheez ka. Logon ko pata hi nahi, theek hai, inko knowledge jitni hai utni hi rehne do unke paas. Zyada dene ka nahi inko. (No, because people don’t know the whole story, so how will they say anything about it. What happened is that I wanted to restart my work, make a comeback and when you respect someone a lot, if you don’t do something for them, then how will you start? So, it was out of respect. And it’s okay, the people who don’t know anything about it, why should we feel sad about what they say. Whatever knowledge they have, let them have that only.)”

Shehnaaz and Sidharth aka Sidnaaz became a huge part of the lives of many people after Bigg Boss 13.

Today, she proves with her demeanour and work how she has matured over time and it has been a delight seeing her grow.
