Diljit Dosanjh may have some of the biggest Punjabi comedies under his belt and he will soon be seen in two Bollywood comedies – ‘Arjun Patiala’ and ‘Good News’. However, the actor has ruled out doing any vulgar comedies.
Talking about this, Dosanjh told The Asian Age, “I have also been offered sex comedies in Bollywood and I have turned them down. I have always been for the family audience and I don’t want to disappoint them.”
He added, “I don’t get too many offers for comedy films, I get more serious dramas and I don’t know why. Having said that, I have a good sense of humour; perhaps it has worked in Punjabi cinema. Your sensibilities change with each territory.”
Dosanjh added that he has no plans to leave Punjabi cinema. He said, “I do Punjabi films, and at the same time if I get offers from Hindi cinema then I try to balance. I make sure I do one Punjabi film every year. I will never leave Punjabi cinema and I try my best to do so.”
“I feel the Punjabi audience stays with you, but here in Bollywood, since it’s a huge territory, they have a huge audience and so they switch. In Punjab, they give you a lot of chances regardless of how many mistakes you make. I have that loyalty factor with them. They support me but that doesn’t mean they will support crap cinema.”
Dosanjh’s latest Punjabi film ‘Shadaa’ has proven to be a huge box office hit.
