Shehnaaz Gill is not a new name in the Punjabi industry. She has been a part of Pollywood for quite some time now but her claim to fame is undeniably the popular-controversial show ‘Bigg Boss’. Though she did not win the show but she certainly won millions of hearts. Infact, there was no looking back for her.

After the show, Punjab’s model turned into a global influencer and ever since, has been ruling the tabloids for all good reasons. She is pretty active on social media and updates her fans and followers with all that’s happening in her life, personally and professionally.

In the year 2017, Shehnaaz made her acting debut in the movie ‘Kawela’ which was directed by Amanjit Singh Brar. Shehnaaz featured alongside the lead cast including Harp Farmer, Mahabir Bhullar and more. She appeared in the very beginning of the film and was seen as a typical Punjabi girlfriend who dies towards the end of the film.

Sat Shri Akaal England:

In the same year 2017, Shehnaaz acted in another Punjabi movie titled ‘Sat Shri Akaal England’ starring Ammy Virk and Monica Gill in lead roles. She was seen in a cameo as Sonia Khanna, the visa officer in a scene opposite Ammy Virk. It was a romantic comedy film written and directed by Vikram Pradhan.

Well, it is important to mention here that Shenaaz was away from the movies for around 2 years but not from the industry. During this time she appeared in Garry Sandhu’s super hit track ‘Yeah Baby’ which took her modeling career to next level.
