Diljit Dosanjh has picked up the mic up yet again for his forthcoming film, Arjun Patiala. The singer-actor has lent his voice to the latest track of the film, Dil Todeya.
This has been described by the makers, the ‘mandatory heartbreak song’ in the album.
Composed by Sachin-Jigar, the lyrics have also been penned by Dosanjh.
Diljit, who will be back in a cop’s role after garnering immense praise from the critics and audience alike for his stunning role in Udta Punjab, is seen as an eccentric policeman.
While talking about the film and his comedic role, Diljit told Press Trust of India:
“I never approach comedy thinking ‘I know it all.’ Comedy is tough. To make people laugh is not easy. Written material, the story and situation matter a lot.
In Punjabi films, I do give me inputs. In Hindi not really. I don’t have that much control in the Hindi language, in Punjabi I can say a particular dialogue will sound funnier if we tweak it.
In Hindi, I just follow. I’ve never done a comedy in this space. I thought I should give it a try.
All it takes is two minutes for me to say yes or no to a script. I had to do this one the moment I heard it.”
The film also stars Kriti Sanon, Varun Sharma, Ronit Roy and Manjot Singh in pivotal roles.
Produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series and Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films, Arjun Patiala releases in cinemas this Friday, 26th July and is distributed in the UK by Cinestaan Film Company.
