Earlier, Diljit Dosanjh was also full of praise for her Honsla Rakh co-star. “Shehnaaz has worked really hard for the film because there are many layers of her in it. I remember that when we were casting her, everybody was doubting whether she will be able to (play) the role as she has her own nature and charm. So, she has worked really hard and the audience will get to see a full package of her including humour, drama and emotions,” the actor told Bollywood Hungama.
