Challenges in creating Hindi songs

Diljit confessed his struggles with making Hindi songs. He mentioned that ‘Naina’ came to fruition only after serious follow-up by Rhea Kapoor. "It’s not like I am singing Hindi songs and the whole of India is listening to me. I always spoke Punjabi, but due to Hindi films, I started talking in Hindi," he explained. Despite his challenges, Rhea's persistence played a crucial role in making the song happen. "I told her I could not make songs for Bollywood, I didn’t know how to do it, but she pursued me for a year. That time I was working on an album, and she would ask me every 10 days where was the song. It was she who made that song through me," he added.

Crew and its star-studded cast

The film Crew featured Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kriti Sanon, and Tabu in the lead roles, along with Kapil Sharma, Rajesh Sharma, and Trupti Khamkar. Diljit, who played Customs Officer Jaiveer 'Jai' Singh, also performed the hit track ‘Naina’ for the movie.

Reflections on regional music and global recognition

Diljit expressed his admiration for many great artists in India, admitting that he cannot sing as well as Sonu Nigam. He credited regional music for helping him reach international stages like Coachella. "When I had gone to Coachella, a friend of mine had told me that ‘you are not realizing that it was the first time Punjabi was spoken on the world stage.’ That thought got ingrained in my mind and it automatically came out on stage, I didn’t say it consciously," he shared.

Diljit's journey from regional music to global recognition is a testament to his talent and perseverance. With the release of Jatt & Juliet 3 on the horizon, fans are eagerly anticipating another stellar performance from the actor-singer.
