Bigg Boss season 13 contestant Shehnaaz Gill is set to star in Punjabi film Honsla Rakh, alongside Diljit Dosanjh and Sonam Bajwa. The film will see her play the role of a mother of a toddler. The project is her first ever since her rumored boyfriend and Bigg Boss co-star Sidharth Shukla passed away. While speaking about how she prepared for the role, Gill revealed that her mother was her prime inspiration. “Jab hum kisiko bhi pyaar karte hai, toh uske saath jo attachment hoti hai, toh woh attachment ke accordingly maine woh ratio nikali. (When we love someone, the emotional attachment we share with the person, I calculated the ratio according to that),” she told Bollywood Bubble. She further added Pyaar jo hai na. Matlab Maa ka jo pyaar hota hai na, woh Maa ko hi pata hai. Aur main Maa wala feel kar sakti hun. Kyunki, meri mummy mujhe kitna pyaar karti hai. (Love is like this. Only a mother will know what a mother’s love is. And I can feel the motherly emotion. Because my mummy loves me that much,)” Shehnaaz had been vocal about her love for Sidharth Shukla on a number of occasions. The two befriended each other while on the sets of Bigg Boss season 13 and grew closer as the season went on. After the end of the show, they would often be spotted with each other and expressed admiration for one another in public. However they officially always maintained that they were close friends. After Sidharth’s demise in September, Shehnaaz and her brother Shahbaaz Gill were seen attending the funeral. Although Shehnaaz remained silent then, her brother shared a number of tribute posts for Sidharth on Instagram and subsequently also got a tattoo of Sidharth’s face on his arm.
