Popular Punjabi singer Diljit is all set to make his debut in Bollywood with Abhishek Chaubey's Udta Punjab opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan. "For me meeting Kareena itself was a big thing, acting with her is a dream come true. She is such a dedicated actor, goes and diligently checks her scene on the monitor after every shoot. I learnt a lot from her. What I liked about the role is that the cop is close to reality unlike the one I played in Jatt and Juliet 2, which was a romcom. I have seen Abhishek's Ishqiya and Dedh Ishqiya and it was very nice working with him," says Diljit, who plays a cop in the film
"I have been getting offers from Bollywood for songs with a small appearance in films, but I am not interested in that. I am doing well for myself in Punjab and I don't want to do something just for the heck of it in Bollywood, lately, Punjabi films are doing good, and everybody has an eye on them. However, for me what matters is the role. Udta Punjab is not only based in Punjab, I play a Punjabi cop, so it makes sense," he states in a article in dnaindia.com.
Diljit however, is not in a hurry to make a place for himself in Bollywood. He would rather wait and see the response for Udta Punjab, before signing another film. "My Punjabi singles have been doing well on UK charts. My goal is to make a Punjabi song that becomes a worldwide hit just like the Korean Gangnam Style did," he says.
