Bigg Boss 13 contestant Shehnaaz Gill is one of the 13 participants on the reality show and left host Salman Khan gushing as she introduced herself as ‘Punjab’s Katrina Kaif.” She hugged Salman the moment she came on stage and even asked him if she really resembles his Bharat co-star, to which the actor nodded in agreement. She also said that she is bit on the heavier side but Salman disagreed and gave her another warm hug.

The Punjabi singer-actor-model performed a dance number on stage before entering the Bigg Boss house. She also spoke about her habit of talking non-stop during her introduction. Shehnaaz made her debut with Punjabi film Kala Shah Kala this year and has just launched her music video, Veham.

Hours before the show premiered on Sunday, Shehnaaz broke the news on social media. Sharing a picture of herself in a white kurta salwar, she wrote on Instagram, “Very happy to announce that I’m a part of Big Boss 13. Thank you tuhada saareyaan da, tuhade support karke main ajj ethe pohnchi aan. Pls keep supporting and keep loving.. I promise I will be my real self in the house. #ShehnaazGill #bigboss13.”

 

Many of her fans cheered her and wished her luck in the comments section. A fan called her “Punjab di Katrina kaif.” Another called her “Punjabi katrina.” One fan even joked about the show host and said, “Salman Khan t bach K rahi...”

Hinting at her reality show stint, Shehnaaz had shared a picture of herself on Instagram a few days ago along with the caption, “Starting over can be challenging, but also it can be a great opportunity to do things differently. Love u all i need ur support.”
