Diljit Dosanjh is currently shooting for a biopic on the life of former Indian hockey captain Sandeep Singh titled ‘Soorma‘. For the movie ‘Soorma’, Diljit took “15-20 days” training in hockey and Sandeep also helped him in that. A few days back makers of the movie had released the first poster and audience gave the superb response to that. Everyone knows about the obsession of Diljit with American reality TV star Kylie Jenner. He often comments on her posts on various social media platforms. Fans always want to know about the one-sided love of Diljit with Kylie. Kylie is pregnant and we know how Diljit’s fans were concerned about his broken heart.
In an interview with IANS, when Diljit was asked about Kylie’s pregnancy news. He said, “I am a fan of Kylie Jenner. It’s her life. That’s good news (if she is pregnant). Obviously, I am happy for her.”
“If she is pregnant why will I be sad? I am still her fan. She can get pregnant for 20 times. I just like her, there are no expectations that I have from her. When I see her, I feel like I really know her. I feel good after seeing her (photographs).”
He talked about his upcoming movie ‘Soorma‘, he praised Sandeep Singh’s willpower for his life and appreciated his support in making the movie. He said “I never knew that Sandeep Singh is my fan as I had never met him earlier. But his life story is really amazing. Whatever he has done in his life, nobody else could have done that. I don’t know how he managed to stood on his feet even after being hit by a gunshot (in 2006),”.
Sandeep has done a lot of detailing in this film. He and his brother (Bikramjeet Singh) always stay on the set. He added.
On working in a biopic, he said “I never thought in my life that I will be working on somebody’s biopic or somebody will offer me a role like this because I am a singer and don’t have enough idea about acting. Biopic is a serious thing. I am not that serious (about acting),”.
He has also sung a song in the movie, on this, he said, “I have sung a song in this film. This is the first time when I have got a chance to sing in a Hindi film. The version of ‘Ikk Kudi’, which I sang, was not a part of ‘Udta Punjab’. Somebody else sung that song in the movie.”
“But in this film, I have one song. It’s a romantic number. I have sung it for Taapsee,” he said.
He believes a film belongs to a director only, he said,”Only a director knows where and when the film is loosening up. An actor doesn’t know about this, he is just giving his scenes. A film doesn’t belong to an actor – even when that movies becomes a hit. Film is a director’s vision. Actors only get to know about a film when they themselves see it “.
“Actors can’t do anything, they can only speak. Everything is looked after by the director. All of them try to do their best. The real essence of an actor’s job comes from the quality of film,” he added.
Diljit will be seen alongside Taapsee Pannu, Angad Bedi and Vijay Raaz among others in ‘Soorma‘. The movie will release in July 2018.
