Diljit Dosanjh On The Portrayal Of Sardars In Movies

In an interview in 2019, the Amar Singh Chamkila star stated, “What change can I bring alone? But what I feel is that whatever film I am doing, I will make sure that a Sardar character is not made fun of. It is a different thing that Sardars love making merry and having fun, but that doesn’t mean people should make fun of us.”

In the same interview with Indian Express, Diljit Dosanjh revealed that he didn’t fit in any Bollywood movies earlier because there were no turban heroes. The Crew star said that even Punjabi movies didn’t have actors with turbans. Hence, many people told him not to enter the film industry.

“Because there were no turban heroes. Initially, even Punjabi films didn’t have actors with turbans. Even when I had started acting, we didn’t have heroes wearing turbans. People had told me not to enter the film industry as it was not my zone. They said that I should stick to singing songs only because we had Sardar singers, but we didn’t have Sardar actors,” stated Diljit Dosanjh.
