Ever since he has entered the Bollywood industry, he has been able to make an exceptional place for himself over a period of time. With films like Udta Punjab (2016), he has developed a humungous fan following. However, despite such a tremendous success, he still is the same person doing regional cinema like he did prior to entering the Bollywood industry. His latest Punjabi film, ‘Shadaa’ is doing fabulously well at the box office.
His Punjabi film ‘Shadaa’ had clashed with Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh on the box office. Unaffected by this, he said that use of the word clash is very wrong. Adding further he said that the film got good screens in Punjab and Delhi. But somehow could not get good screens in Mumbai. He said that the problem would have arisen had both the films been of the same genre. “We are lucky that when our film releases in Punjab, people go and watch it,” said the Shadaa actor.
Talking about Bollywood and friends he said wherever he gets work is a good place for him. Making friends he said that he has not come in the industry to make ‘true friends’. He further added that whoever people he works with he has a good equation with all of them.
Talking about the cut-throat competition in the industry he in a very healthy and a positive way says that there is nothing wrong with having competition. He said that competition presides in any industry. For instance, a person working as an insurance agent will also be told by his seniors to go out and sell some policies, only then he will be hired. So this competition is not only in the fame world but in other industries too.
This is year is a commercial year for Diljit. He says that Arjun Patiala and Good News are commercial films and he is super excited for them.
Talking about the box office collections, he says that they are very important for him. If the film does not do well at the box office, he does not feel good because for him it means that the money invested by the producer has been wasted. He said “I want my film should do good business at the box office. If it’s a good film, then it should work. How can there be a film which does not work at the box office?”
