Shehnaaz discussed how she unintentionally banned Salman’s phone number on TKSS. The celebrity attempted to phone Gill and offer her KKBKKJ, but the former BB 13 contestant stopped the call because the number was unknown.
The actress said, “I was in Amritsar visiting the Gurudwara when I received a call from an unknown number. And I have this habit of blocking unknown numbers, so I did the same. Then after a few minutes, I got a message that Salman sir is trying to call me. To verify, I put the number on the Truecaller app and found out that it was actually Salman Khan calling me! I immediately unblocked him and called him back; it was then that he offered me the film and that’s how I got the film.”
Shehnaaz thanked Khan for having faith in him during the premiere of the movie’s trailer. She also remembered experiencing one of the most significant professional rejections.
“When I went to shoot for my first music video, I was rejected. I was told, ‘Ye kaunsi bachchi leke aaye hai, we don’t want to shoot with her. Take her back.’ I returned and cried a lot at home, that I’d been rejected. My mom told me why am I crying, one day I would be in a Salman Khan film. Sir gave me a chance and proved that Mom’s words always come true,” she said.
