He is a raw smell of village in this fashionable world. Never shying away from where he comes from, he denied changing what he is, calling himself ‘Urban Pendu.’ His traditional ‘Pagdi’ and exultant ‘Punjabi’ style, blissful voice stamped him on Pollywood and Bollywood. He is definitely more than his peaceful face, eyes of stories and smile of the lord. The man of persistence with, words of God, the man of today is Diljit Dosanjh. Just like his name he has won hearts of many with his work in acting – singing and down-to-earth nature.
Here is why Diljit Dosanjh is the most down-to-earth and unique soul you have come across:
1. Thankful Nature
Dosanjh started his career at the age of 18 and struggled for almost 18 years before hitting Bollywood. This boy next door never failed to thank his guru’s, Gobinder Singh Alampuri and Kartar Singh. He always thanks his millions of followers and interacts with them. In his recent interview, he reminisced his childhood and village and never fails to acknowledge the support of almighty.
2. Little Things
Pure and humble heart enjoys little things and Diljit enjoys everything he has earned now. He is content with what he has but dreams for better. He always remembers where he comes from and enjoys little things he has. In an interview with Anupama Chopra, he expressed his overwhelm on little celebrity things like Black Coffee, Vanity, Spot Boy and shoot, just like an enthusiastic kid.
3. Questioner and Learner
The lost boy bravely made his points in 2016’s ‘The Actors Roundtable‘. He either shied away to disagree or agree. He questioned where he couldn’t understand, opened arms of learning on that roundtable. He brings himself and not the pretence and does not miss any opportunity to win hearts.
He always appreciated work of his co-stars and believed in collaboration. His cordial relation with Honey Singh and Badsha is no secret. Even after establishing himself as an actor, he never projected himself superior. He has been humble and never let his success get on his head. He looks up at his co-stars and is always appreciable.
5. Charity: Saanjh Foundation
Dosanjh started Saanjh Foundation, an N.G.O for needy children and old aged people. It focuses to fund orphanage and old age home. It also helps youth struggling with subjects like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring, and career development. He has done charitable concerts with an underwritten money to physically handicapped schools.
6. Fan and a Follower
He has always articulated his star-struck moments. He never builds the wall of sophistication, which will keep him away from being an excited fan – whether he is busy trying to get the attention of Kim Kardashian on Insta Live or fanning over Adidas Yeezy Boost 350. He repeated his enthusiasm for working with Kareena Kapoor and Anushka Sharma and was privileged to see Shahid, Ranbeer and Amitabh. By the way, he has a crush on Kylie Jenner. Well, he also commented “Kudi Punjaban lagdi ah..” on Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot’s Instagram pic.
