Bigg Boss 13 contestant Shehnaaz Gill said, “I am quite patient and selective when it comes to working. I have a few projects, including a film, the details of which cannot be divulged yet. I have always chosen quality over quantity. Chaahe kam kaam karu, par achha karu. My dream is to play a quintessential heroine. I can act any part, but I want to try difficult characters. That apart, I plan to focus on my career as a singer. I want to lend my voice to singles and also be a playback singer. Main Shehnaaz Gill ke naam ko bada karna chahti hoon bada soch kar,”.
Speaking about what motivated her to shed her weight, Shehnaaz said, “I just want to make the most of the opportunity that God has blessed me with. Meri thinking positive hoti gayi aur mujhe achhe log mile journey mein. Along with honing my talent, I always try to improve myself and rectify my mistakes — that’s very important for moving ahead in life. I decided to lose weight when I started receiving appreciation from people, I wanted to show them a different me. Sab mujhe moti keh rahe the, so I wanted to surprise them.”
Shehnaaz further said that she is also trying to get rid of her Punjabi accent and learning to speak Hindi and English. “I try to talk in English with people, Chaahe woh hass bhi de mujh par. Slowly, I have started understanding the meaning of various words. Every time I see a new word, I look up the internet for its meaning and correct pronunciation and also play word games,” she said.
Shehnaaz turns a year older on January 27. She had a close-knit midnight party to celebrate her birthday with rumoured boyfriend Siddharth Shukla and their families. Siddharth and Shanaaz’s relationship was one of the most talked-about topics of Bigg Boss 13 and fans gave their bond a name — #SidNaaz. The hashtag occasionally keeps on trending on social media even today. While Shehnaaz has openly confessed her love for the actor, Siddhartha has always maintained that they are just friends.
