Diljit Dosanjh: Never wanted to do Hindi films to become the hero’s best friend
Diljit Dosanjh has been on top of the world ever since his latest release ‘Good Newwz’ released. The film has been going great business and has already crossed the Rs 100 crore mark at the domestic box-office. With fewer releases this week, the film is only going to get more and more views from the audiences. Amidst all this, Diljit is having a happy time. When we asked about his journey in Bollywood, and how he is an inspiration to other Sardar actors, Diljit opened up about his ambitions.
“I never wanted to do Hindi films to become the hero’s best friend. I was very clear in my mind from the start. I was very happy in my life doing Punjabi films. It was only when one of my Punjabi films, ‘Punjab 1984’ went on to become a huge success, I got noticed among people in Bollywood also. After that I was offered ‘Udta Punjab’, and then slowly and steadily my journey started in B-Town. But, I have never picked and never will pick a film just for the heck of it. I see it in the makers, if they are taking the character I am playing seriously or not. If they are giving the proper respect that a character needs, and offering me something that is worthwhile, then only I decide to sign on board for the project,” said Diljit.
We must say, well said Diljit.
A lot of times actors in Bollywood come from different industries and just in order to have a Hindi film under their name, they end up doing really small films that don’t showcase their talent to the core. With Diljit that’s not the case. He has opened up doors for other Sardar actors who are now considered for the lead role, and not just as a friend of the main lead.
