Today there are few stars and more artistes: Diljit Dosanjh


To make people laugh is not easy. Today if there’s an individual music scene, it’s only in Punjab. Advertising

The actor, who made his Bollywood debut with Udta Punjab, says social media has given access and voice to many good singers and actors. More Explained

Diljit will be next seen in the spoof-comedy Arjun Patiala, featuring Kriti Sanon and Varun Sharma. “They make even short videos with all seriousness. “Back home, no one looks at me as a star. At least I know my mother doesn’t. “I’ve never done a comedy in this space. Of course, no doubt there is talent in North. Written material, the story and situation matter a lot. In Hindi I just follow.” 
The actor says he was bowled over the script at the narration stage itself. 0

“If you’re getting way too much than perhaps what you deserve, there’s no insecurity. I had to do this one the moment I heard it.”

Written by Ritesh Shah and Sandeep Leyzell, Arjun Patiala is scheduled to release on July 26. “I don’t have that much control in Hindi language, in Punjabi I can say a particular dialogue will sound funnier if we tweak it. Maddock has made some fantastic films too. Advertising

Diljit says today the definition of a “star” has changed. Hindi has a massive reach. It makes you realise that you’re working and you’ve got an opportunity but isn’t because you’re the best. For the actor, who has done several hit comedies in Punjab, the genre is never easy. It comes up when you feel ‘I expect and deserve much more but I’m not getting it.’” 
Opportunity is a key which describes Punjabi artistes ability to multitask. I don’t about others. Though there is a constant influx of new talents in the industry–or on the Internet–the 35-year-old actor says it doesn’t cause insecurity. People will like you as an artiste, they’ll respect you for that and not just because you’re a star. All it takes is two minutes for me to say yes or no to a script. I thought I should give it a try. Everyone benefits. “There are very few stars today, there are more artistes. “I never approach comedy thinking ‘I know it all.’ Comedy is tough. Even in Hindi films we have Punjabi songs. “Whatever God has given me, I feel blessed but I don’t take it for granted. In the film, directed by Rohit Jugraj, Diljit is playing a quirky small town cop. There are much better looking, more talented people, sometimes one gets an opportunity and that’s all luck,” he says. In Punjabi films I do give me inputs. “That’s because when there are less opportunities, one does everything on their own. Both parties are happy,” the actor says. “We had heard ‘Kaala Chashma’ long back, it comes to Bollywood and becomes a hit again.
