Shehnaaz Gill on life: ‘Agar Positivity nahi rakhungi, fir toh main barbaad ho jaungi’

New Delhi– Actress Shehnaaz Gill, who exudes positivity from every inch despite having gone through so much in life, said: “Agar positivity nahi rakhungi, fir toh main barbaad ho jaungi”.

Talking to IANS, she said: “Positivity nahi rakhungi fir toh main barbaad ho jaungi na. Main na bahut emotional type insaan hun. Agar main positive nahi rahi, toh I think main toot sakti hun. (If I will not keep positivity in life, I will be ruined as I am an emotional person).”

“Toh mujhe apne aap ko positive rakhna hi padhta hai. Zaroori hai life main. (So I have to keep myself positive. It is important for life),” she added.

Shehnaaz, who was recently seen in Salman Khan-starrer ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’, gained the spotlight after her stint in the 13th season of ‘Bigg Boss’. Her strong chemistry with late actor Sidharth Shukla was loved by everyone. However, in 2021, he passed away after suffering a heart attack at the age of 40.

On love for her in abundance since her stint in the controversial reality show, she said: “I am enjoying. Till whatever time I have it, I am enjoying it.”

Shehnaaz feels that it’s her ‘desi’ persona that connects with her fans.

“I am desi and that is why people connect with me so much. I don’t pretend to be someone else. I am what I am… That I think connects with people,” said the actress, adding that she would leave it only if she has to play a character on screen.

“But if you talk naturally… I can’t change my personality. It will always be the same,” she concluded.

Dimple says unlike in the past, female characters today come with flaws

Mumbai– Veteran star Dimple Kapadia is happy to see the female roles evolving as today’s female characters have their own flaws.

Dimple said: “Firstly, it’s high time that we stop calling films and series – male centric or female centric. These are stories in itself, irrespective of the gender of the lead cast, they are stories beyond gender, region and cultures that need to be spoken about and celebrated.”

She added: “However, I am thrilled that stories with dynamic female relationships are evolving and we are seeing women in new characters in every form. Moving beyond the quintessential heroine, today’s female characters have their own flaws, they are much more layered and are now even doing action, just like men in Saas Bahu aur Flamingo!”

She finds it more important to tell stories that reflect the diversity of the country – whether it is women, cultures or regions and the current entertainment landscape is working towards that direction.

“I am super excited to see how this shapes out for me as an actor!”

Produced by Maddock Films, ‘Saas, Bahu aur Flamingo’ is directed by Homi Adajania and stars Dimple Kapadia, Radhika Madan, Angira Dhar and Isha Talwar in pivotal roles along with a talented cast, Ashish Verma, Varun Mitra, Udit Arora, Deepak Dobriyal and Monica Dogra amongst others.
