Shehnaaz Gill is back at work after a month-long hiatus. The actress stayed away from the spotlight following the death of her beloved friend and co-star Sidharth Shukla. The actor's unexpected death left Shehnaaz heartbroken. Images of a grieving Shehnaaz Gill went viral on social media last month, causing fans of the actress much concern. However now, the actress has returned to work to promote her upcoming Punjabi film, Honsla Rakh, which stars singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh in the lead role. The actress was seen in a bunch of interviews as well as some fun videos that were shared by Diljit on social media. And, fans of the actress were delighted to see her back at work, flaunting her trademark smile.
In one of the clips, Shehnaaz Gill is seen acting out one of the dialogues of the film. The dialogue from Honsla Rakh goes, “Two leaves of the pomegranate in the rainy weather. Hug me, hug me soniye.” At the end of the clip, Shehnaaz Gill is seen walking off in a huff, seemingly displeased by Diljit's reaction.
Sharing the post, Diljit wrote the same dialogue but in Punjabi. “Do Pattar Anaaran De Meeh Da Mausam Hain. Seene Lagg Ja Yaaran De,” Diljit Dosanjh wrote in the caption.
Fans of Shehnaaz Gill were elated to see her in the clip and praised the actress for her strength in the face of such insurmountable loss. While some followers said that the pain on Shehnaaz's face was evident, others hailed her professionalism.
One comment on the post said, "Welcome back Shehnaaz. Smile like this always." Another user dropped the heart emoji and said, "She's hiding her tears to make us happy."
Many even thanked Diljit Dosanjh for making Shehnaaz Gill smile. "Thanks a lot... for making Shehnaaz smile," read one comment. Another user wrote, "Thank you Paaji. Make Sana smile more." Sana is Shehnaaz's pet name.
This is, in fact, the second Reels that Diljit shared that features Shehnaaz Gill, in the last few days. In another Reels video, Diljit Dosanjh is seen being “beaten up” by co-stars Sonam Bajwa and Shehnaaz Gill for stringing them along.
