5 Things You need to Know Diljit Dosanjh

FYI: He's the new hottie of the hour...




There's one brand new takeaway from Udta Punjab that's got everyone abuzz—and that would a certain Diljit Dosanjh who seems to have stolen the show, being talked about as much as (if not more) than co-star biggies Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt and ​Shahid Kapoor. So who is this new man of mystery? We bring you the lowdown...

#1. He's not known for his acting. He's actually a singer, and a pretty well-known man in the Punjabi music circuit at that.

#2. He's also a TV presenter and he's done a series of Punjabi films to boot. He even collabbed on stage with Yo yo Honey Singh at one point. 

#3. His name (originally Daljit) was changed to Diljit when Rajinder Singh (his record producer) recommended he change it to Diljit instead. His last name, Dosanjh, is actually the name of the town he comes from.

#4. In Udta Punjab, his character is a turned cop who allows the export of illegal drugs into the state. 

#5. The man says his dream role is playing a character just like Johnny Depp's in Pirates of the Caribbean!
