While we are sure you're looking forward to see the Punjabi lad on the silver screen, don't forget to look out for another rising talent in the film industry, Angad Bedi. Bedi is playing Bikramjeet Singh, the elder brother of titular Sandeep Singh in the Shaad Ali directorial, who was also a hockey player but could not continue his career due to an injury. Angad Bedi, the son of veteran Indian cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi, is a popular model and actor and has played important roles in movies like Pink, Inside Edge and Tiger Zinda Hai. He was all praises for Diljit Dosanjh while talking to a national daily. He said,
"I am very proud of Diljit Dosanjh. He is from Ludhiana and has made a place for himself in the film industry with a turban.
