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.
