Already a Punjabi��superstar, in the field of both movies and music, it is a known fact that Diljit Dosanjh’s songs are popular across the globe. With many regional singers trying to expand their career to��Bollywood, one would wonder why Dosanjh is not signing up��to do playback for Hindi film��songs. However, he has confessed that he is not interested in��the struggle.
Speaking to Mid Day, Dosanjh said, “I��am a Punjabi folk lover. I don’t make music for a national audience. My target audience is the typical Punjabi peeps. I am not a music producer, and I’m clear I cannot continuously keep churning out music for Hindi movies. I cannot become a struggler here when I already have a flourishing career back home. I cannot store my music in a bank like composers here do. When I see Punjabi musicians in Bollywood, I see them struggle even after delivering a string of hits. They remain dependant, which takes the soul out of their music. Though I am a singer first, I always knew acting was my route into Bollywood.”
On the acting front, Dosanjh stepped into Bollywood with ‘Udta Punjab’ (2016), which won him many favourable reviews. He will next��be seen in Anushka Sharma’s ‘Phillauri’.
