Did you know that Shehnaaz Gill was not the first choice for “Honsla Rakh”? | Punjabi Cinema News

In October 2021, Shehnaaz Gill made her big debut as the female lead with the romantic comedy “Honsla Rakh”. Her character as Sweety garnered a lot of love and appreciation from the audience. Right from her looks, her acting, and her dancing, it was all so on point, and audiences just can’t imagine anyone other than Shehnaaz playing Sweety. However, did you know that Shehnaaz Gill was not the first choice for the character and for the movie ‘Honsla Rakh’?

Shocking as it may sound, it’s true. Before Shehnaaz Gill, actress Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia of ‘Chhoti Sardaarni’ fame was offered the role of Sweety in ‘Honsla Rakh’. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia mentioned that the film’s lead actor Diljit Dosanjh himself approached her for the role.

The actress said she was approached by Diljit Dosanjh for the role via Instagram. She woke up to his text and was so overwhelmed with emotions that she started crying. However, since Covid was at its peak and there were other reasons as well, due to which Nimrit lost the project. She feels really sad to lose the opportunity to work with Diljit Dosanjh. However, as we say that one’s lack is one’s gain; the role eventually landed in the arms of Shehnaaz Gill.
