Diljit Dosanjh is one of the most popular stars and singers of the industry today. The regional performer has even made his mark in Bollywood with his hit Punabi songs and movies like ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Soorma’ and ‘Good Newzz’.
In a recent interview, Diljit shared, “I have no desire of becoming a Bollywood star. I love music, and without anybody’s say, I can make my music. No superstar can tell me that this music won’t work, or that someone else’s song would work better, none of this works on me. Punjabi artists are independent, and that’s great freedom to have. Nobody can stop us, nobody can stop me from making music. I will keep making music for as long as I want to, and for as long as God allows me to. And I don’t give a damn about getting work in Bollywood”.
On being asked about the Hindi film industry, he said, “If I speak up about it, it’ll become a big deal. It’s better to stay away from all this. Your eyes reveal everything. It isn’t necessary to use words. And filmmaking is the kind of medium where it isn’t necessary that you get lines. You have your face and your expressions and your eyes, which reveal everything. I’m not crazy about anybody; no actor, no director, nobody. They can be superstars in their own homes. Perhaps I should have said this before.”
