Singer-actor Shehnaaz Gill moved fans after posting a tribute video to late boyfriend Sidharth Shukla. One of them was also cricketer Rashid Khan.
The Afghan player, who is also part of the IPL Sunrisers Hyderabad squad, took to Instagram to share words of support for Shehnaaz. Reacting to his video, he wrote: “May Allah give you strength. It also added prayer and heart emojis.
Rashid “liked” Shehnaaz’s message and is following her as well. She is not following him yet. However, this is not Rashid’s only connection to an Indian actor. Last year, she was asked in an Instagram Q and A to name her favorite actresses. He said he enjoyed watching Anushka Sharma and Priety Zinta. Their fans have mentioned them so much online that Google even threw up the name Anushka whenever someone searched for “Rashid Khan’s wife”.
Meanwhile, Shehnaaz’s song Tu Yaheen Hai has surpassed 10 million views on YouTube. He shows her wandering the streets of a foreign place while remembering all the good times she had with Sidharth Shukla. The two met on Bigg Boss 13 and got closer. They starred together in a few music videos, but never agreed to be a couple. After the show ended, Shehnaaz continued to express her love for him on several occasions, but the duo maintained that they were only close friends.
Sidharth Shukla died in September of a suspected heart attack. He was 40 years old. Shehnaaz had so far not commented on her death and broke her silence with the song itself.
