Having forayed into Bollywood soon after making a mark with his entrancing music, Diljit Dosanjh speaks of his journey in the industry. The actor-singer confessed in an interview, “I give a damn about getting work in Bollywood. Mujhe kaam karna bhi nahi hai Bollywood me. Meri koi iccha bhi nahi hai Bollywood me bohot mahaan kalakaar banjaun.
Being brutally honest, Diljit says, “Main music ko pyaar karta hu aur bina kisi ke marzi ke music kar sakta hu. Bina kisi superstar ke kehne se. Iska kaam chalega ya nahi chalega, ya isko gaana milega ya nahi milega ye sab cheezein humare pe nahi chalti hai.”
While he stated that he doesn’t want to become a big Bollywood star, he voiced his love for music. “I can make it without anyone’s interference. No one can tell me this will work or that will work. Punjab me joh bhi artists hai, wo khud gaane banate hai. Ye bohot badi azaadi hai. Koi hume rok nahi sakta hai. Toh music banane se mujhe koi rok nahi sakta. Jab tak mera mann karega, music banega.
He continues that every artist in Punjab makes his/her own music and adds that he will make music till his last breath and till the time there is God’s will. “Jab tak bhagwaan chahega, music banega. Bollywood me kaam mile na mile, ratti bhar fark nahi padta,” he clarifies.

When probed in an interview about how he’d respond to a person on Twitter who complained he hasn’t been in Punjab lately, Dosanjh said, “I was born in Punjab, it’ll always be a part of me until I die. Someone said that I don’t stay there anymore, but I take Punjab with me wherever I go.”
He elucidates, “People will speak as per their mental level. I will speak to people based on their wavelength, their point of view. Also, it’s not their fault if they don’t understand you.”
Speaking of bad experiences he’s had in Bollywood, Diljit revealed, “Superstar honge apne ghar pe. Baat niklegi toh door tak jayegi. Bach jao jitna bach sakte ho,” he concluded not wanting to ignite a controversy.
