'Bigg Boss 15' premiered on October 2 with a bang. Several contestants entered the show. Superstar-host Salman Khan introduced her to the audience one after the other. Donal Bisht, Jai Bhanushali, Vishal Kotian, Tejashwi Prakash, Vidhi Pandya, Simmba Nagpal, Umar Riaz, Ishaan Sehgal, Akasa Singh, Karan Kundrra, Prateek Sahajpal, Afsana Khan, Sahil Shroff, and Misha Iyer entered the show on the night of the premiere. On the first day of 'Bigg Boss 15', Shamita Shetty, Prateek Sahajpal, and Nishant Bhat entered the controversial reality show after their stint in 'Bigg Boss OTT'. When the 'Bigg Boss 15' grand premiere took place, fans were disappointed that the show didn't pay tribute to the late Sidharth Shukla, who won 'Bigg Boss 13'.

Meanwhile, a social media post made by Shehnaaz Gill, which is claimed to be the first social media post of actresses since Sidharth's demise, is going viral on the internet.

In it, the actress had written "Pehle Kyun Na Mile Hum" and it was followed by tears, hearts, and infinity sign emoji. The tweet tagged Siddharth's Twitter handle and the hashtag #sidnaaz was also used. The tweet immediately went viral on the internet and several fan pages of late Sidharth Shukla and Shehnaaz Gill shared the tweet remembering their bond.

However, it turns out that the tweet was fake. Shehnaaz Gill has not posted anything on Twitter or her Instagram handle since the tragic death of Siddharth Shukla on 2 September. In fact, his last posts on both platforms were on August 31 and September 1, respectively.

Shehnaaz is still recovering from this after the death of Siddharth Shukla. It is now being said that Shehnaaz will be back at work to shoot a song for her Punjabi film 'Hosla Rakh'. Confirming the news of his return to work, Diljit Thind, the producer of the film told TOI that he is in constant touch with Shehnaaz's team and they will finalize the filming location based on her visa condition.

He said, β€œI was in constant touch with Shehnaaz’s team and they regularly update us about her. She is a thorough professional and I am glad that she agreed to shoot the promotional song with us. We will either shoot in UK or India depending on their visa.

Siddharth Shukla died of a heart attack in September. Shehnaaz was last seen at Sidharth's funeral and since then she has been away from the media spotlight to deal with her tragic loss.
