Shehnaaz Gill, who introduced herself as 'Punjab Ki Katrina Kaif' in Bigg Boss 13, has seen a fair share of struggles in her life. Shehnaaz was only 22 years old when she decided to leave her family. Shehnaaz ran away, blocked her parents’ phone numbers and started to live in a PG. Though she used to earn only Rs. 15,000 a month, her dreams were big enough to keep her going. 

On the Senior Citizen Special episode of Indian Idol 13, Shehnaaz Gill graced the show. The gorgeousness is known for lending her melodious voice to Punjabi songs and appearing in music videos. During the show, she called one of the contestants, Debosmita Roy a lucky one as she has supportive parents. Recalling her own story, Shehnaaz Gill accepted how she ran away from her family in her younger days. She said:

“There are very few families in our country who support working women. Mai apne sapnon ko poora karne ke liye ghar se bhaag gayi thi. Debosmita, you are very lucky to have such supportive parents. Always stand by them and make them proud.”
