Sidharth Shukla’s sudden demise came as a shock for not just his fans but also for rumoured girlfriend Shehnaaz Gill. After remaining away from the limelight for almost a month, the actress finally continued her work before the release of her Punjabi film ‘Honsla Rakh’ starring Diljit Dosanjh and Sonam Bajwa. Not only this but she recently released a tribute song titled ‘Tu Yaheen Hai’ for the late actor. While SidNaaz fans were heartbroken looking at her last moments with Shukla, there were others who slammed the actress on Twitter for driving out publicity by using his name. Soon, hashtag #StopUsingSidharthShukla started trending on the micro-blogging website after which many celebs including Aly Goni, Asima Riaz and others came out in support of Sana.
Tkaing to Twitter, Aly shared screenshots of various posts made by singers like Jaan Kumar Sanu and Amit Sawant who wrote about releasing tribute songs. Aly tweeted, “Here we are still mourning this unfortunate event n people who claim to be his close friends are selling emotions on the name of a Tribute. Asking us to make reels on someone’s death, counting views n likes! How low will they stoop? Stop the mockery! stop using Sidharth Shukla.”
He further shared another tweet that read, “I think there is a misunderstanding in my last tweet.. first of all Shehnaz ka poora Haq banta hai to tribute and I loved that song.. secondly that tweet was for those people who drag Sid in the name of cover songs reels and all. Jo uss tweet mein mention tha..#peaceout.”
Even Asim came out in support of Shehnaaz and taking to Instagram story wrote ‘Stop It’ alongside the trending hashtag. See it here:
