Salman Khan seemed happy to welcome Shehnaaz Gill on stage. He greeted her and called her ‘Punjab ki Katrina turned to India ki Shehnaaz’, the Bigg Boss 13 finalist was left emotional. Tearing up, she said she couldn’t hold back her emotions seeing him. Giving her strength, he went on to dance with her and tried to make her mood better. During the conversation, Shehnaaz even managed to tease him on Katrina Kaif’s wedding. As she said he is better off single, Salman joked, “Jab hojaunga toh aur accha lagunga (when I will be single, I will look better).”
Shehnaaz then went on to showcase her performance dedicated to Sidharth to Salman. Getting teary-eyed remembering the Bigg Boss 13 champion, Salman Khan lauded her for being so strong.

The host left many surprised when he shared that he has been in touch with Sidharth’s mother. “I do call her and talk to her,” he shared, adding how it has been a difficult time for her too.

If I’m not wrong Salman khan hardly open his whole arm for any female celebs. But how tightly he gave hug to her. Which proved how much prayer, strength he gave to her.@ishehnaaz_gill @BeingSalmanKhan #SalNaaz pic.twitter.com/v7nUCGiJ66
