Diljit Dosanjh Bags His First Karan Johar Film

After his stupendous performance  as  hockey player Sandeep  Singh in  Soorma Diljit’s career  in Hindi cinema  is on a  roll.

His performance in Soorma has  caught the attention of some of the biggest filmmakers in  Bollywood , including Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Karan Johar. While Bhansali is contemplating where to fit this “incredibly honest actor” into his oeuvre Karan  Johar has  gone ahead and signed  Diljit for a plum role in  a film to be directed  by debutant Raj Mehta.

Mehta,  has assisted Shakun Batra  in  Karan  Johar’s production of Kapoor & Sons.

Interestingly Diljit would be sharing screen space with Akshay Kumar in this  film. Apparently  Rajkummar Rao was the first choice for this part. But Rao was unable to  adjust his dates.

Says a source close to the project, “It’s a very powerful role , parallel to Akshay Kumar’s part and  very  pivotal to the  main drama. Akshay and  Diljit are big  fans  of each  other’s works. So this is going to be  one helluva team.”
