Shehnaaz Gill claims the Punjabi film’s creators failed to contact her for the premiere of her own film. She admitted that seeing everyone at the premiere made her cry a lot.
Shehnaaz Gill spoke about her journey from Punjabi films to now co-starring in a movie with Salman Khan. The actor, who is busy promoting her first Bollywood film, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, recalled in a new interview how the Punjabi film industry had ‘cut her off completely’. She revealed how she was not called for her own movie’s premiere and that had hurt her the most.
Shehnaaz shared how she was ignored at premiere of her Punjabi film
Shehnaaz said she cried after she was not invited to the premiere of her Punjabi film, even though she did not name which movie she was speaking of. Shehnaaz Gill made her Punjabi acting debut with Sat Shri Akaal England (2017). Since then she has worked in Punjabi films such as Kala Shah Kala, Daaka and Honsla Rakh.
When asked to share her two struggling moments that she can never forget, Shehnaaz said in an interview to Siddharth Kannan, “Ek baar maine ek movie pe kaam kiya tha second lead mein. And mujhe premiere pe bhi nahi bulaya tha, sari duniya ko bulaya tha, pura production house. Punjabi film thi. Main apni movie dekh kar nikli aur maine dekha sari photos and all ho rahi hain unki, premiere mein jo log the. Main uss din bahut royi gadi mein ja ke ki unhone mujhe call kiya, phir mujhe cancel kar diya. Mujhe tab bahut dukh hua tha ki mujhe nahi bulaya sab ko bulaya (For my Punjabi film’s premiere, everyone was called, but not me. They asked me to come, and then cancelled. After watching the film, I saw the cast posing for photographers as I left the theater. I remember crying as I sat in my car, wondering why was I not called, when everyone else was).”
Shehnaaz also said, “Struggle toh main bahut kiya hai. Punjabi industry ne bilkul hi mujhe cut-off kar diya tha. But woh kehte hain na ‘Jiska koi nahi, uska bhagwan hota hai’, toh mera bhagwan hai. Karma (I have struggled a lot. Punjabi film industry had cut me off completely. But as they say ‘Those who have no one, have God’. I have God. It is all Karma).”
