Punjabi actor Diljit Dosanjh who entered Bollywood with Udta Punjab seems to be gaining accolades a plenty for his performance in the film. After being criticized for receiving an award under the category of best debutant and responding to the same in a rather calm fashion, Diljit has certainly won over a few more hearts.

Apparently, Kumar who watched Udta Punjab was won over by Diljit’s performance in the film and decided to rope in the actor to feature alongside him in his next venture.
