"Media jhoot kyun bolti hai?"
Shehnaaz Gill was recently in the headlines for dating her Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali co-star Raghav Juyal.
The Bigg Boss 13 star shares a warm bond with the choreographer-turned-actor and reportedly also took a vacation with him.
Their pictures from the same location and their closeness had led the rumour mills buzzing about something romantic between the two.
While both the parties have not spoken about it, at the launch of her brother’s song, Shehnaaz Gill took a dig at the media for spreading rumours about her.
She also clarified that just because someone happens to hang out together doesn’t mean they are dating.
In a video going viral on the internet, Shehnaaz Gill said: “Media jhoot kyun bolti hai? Media har bar jhoot bolti hai and kuch bi bolti hai (why does the media always tell lies).”
As someone questioned her whether her statement is regarding the recent news of her relationship, she asked the reporter if she is dating the person standing next to her.
As she replied, the actress said: “Hum kisi ke saath khade ho jayein ya kisi ke saath ghum lein toh relation mein hai?
“Nahin na…toh bas, media fizool bolti hai. Ab main hyper ho jaungi (Just because we are standing next to someone, or hanging out, doesn’t mean we are dating. So, all this is rubbish. I will get hyper now).”
Before this, the actress was in a rumoured relationship with her Bigg Boss 13 co-contestant and late actor Sidharth Shukla.

The two were close friends and shared a strong bond. Sidharth passed away in 2021 after suffering a cardiac arrest.
At the song launch of ‘Aunda Sanda’, Shehnaaz Gill was seen standing beside her brother Shehbaz Badesha.
Dressed in black shorts and a top with a magenta jacket, the actress finished her look with a ponytail, looking chic at the event.
Post the launch, she was seen letting her hair down with her close friends at the party.
In a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, Shehnaaz Gill also gave up her ‘Punjab Ki Katrina’ title stating that she wants to be only known as India’s Shehnaaz Gill.
She said: “I don’t want to be Punjab Ki Katrina Kaif. Galti ho gayi, mujhe maaf kar do.
“I just want to be Shehnaaz Gill from India.”
The actress is set to make her Bollywood debut with Salman Khan’s film Bhaijaan.
Earlier titled Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, the film will also feature Pooja Hegde, Raghav Juyal and Siddharth Nigam, and is set to release later this year.
