The film ‘Honsala Rakh’ starring actors Shehnaaz Gill, Diljit Dosanjh and Sonam Bajwa was released on October 15 on the occasion of Dussehra. Honsla Rakh is Shehnaaz’s first release after the sudden death of her alleged boyfriend Siddharth Shukla in September. The film got a good response on the first day.
Shehnaaz Gill, who is playing an interesting character in the film, was highly appreciated by her fans on social media. This is indeed a never-before-seen avatar of the actor, who had earlier worked in films like Sat Sri Akal England, Daaka and Kala Shah Kala.
The film is a Punjabi romantic-comedy and revolves around a father (played by Diljit) and his journey to find love again only to stumble upon his former love. The film is directed by Amarjit Singh Saron, and marks Diljit’s debut as a producer with co-producer Diljit Thind.
Summary of the film read: It is a film about mature emotions, a rudimentary bond between a father and his son, juxtaposed with romance and a sweet comedy.
Shehnaaz’s fans are showering their love and blessings for her film “Shehnaziyaan” on social media. Here’s a look at their shocking reactions:
