It seems like Punjabi films are the next big destination for movie Bollywood bigwigs. In the recent past, not just film studios but big names such as Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra have also ventured into Punjabi film production. Now, we have learnt that producer Ekta Kapoor (left) is the next in line.
The Udta Punjab actor, Diljit Dosanjh, is suppose to star in the project, which will be directed by the National award-winning director Anurag Singh.Interestingly, Anurag and Diljit have already worked together on films such as the Jatt & Juliet series and Punjab 1984 (2014).
While Ekta couldn’t be reached for a comment, Diljit says, “It’s been my long cherished dream to give Punjabi audiences their own super hero. It fills me with pride that this dream is finally coming to life. What has made it even more special is that I get to make this dream come alive with my favourite director Anurag.”
After making his Hindi film debut with UP, Diljit will next be seen with Anushka Sharma in the latter’s next home production, Phillauri.
