Recently, Shehnaaz Gill released a tribute song titled, ‘Tu Yaheen Hai’ for her close friend and rumored boyfriend, Sidharth Shukla whom she had met in Bigg Boss 14. The chemistry of both was loved by the audience so much so that people went on to create couple fan pages named as 'Sidnaaz'.
The demise of Sidharth came as a sudden shock for the entire nation and especially Shehnaaz was shattered post the actor’s death. Nearly two months after the death of the actor, Shehnaaz released a tribute song in his remembrance after which netizens started to slam Shehnaaz stating why would she monetize her song if she really wanted to pay the tribute.

Not only this, Jaan Kumar Saanu (who was also the fellow contestant of Sidharth and Shehnaaz) and Amit Tandon announced the release of the cover song in the form of tribute.
This too invited a lot of backlash against the artists.
However, in response to this Amit stated that the song was recorded even before the untimely demise of the actor and the cover song is not a tribute. Also Read : Miss Pooja Announces Motherhood With First Pictures Of Her Son Aalap Singh Tahli
