The trailer launch also saw Diljit Dosanjh open up about the film's journey. Riding high on the success of his recent projects, including Amar Singh Chamkila and his ongoing world tour, Dosanjh revealed that the Jatt & Juliet franchise wasn't always smooth sailing. In fact, he shared that he almost rejected the film in 2011 due to disagreements with the producer.

However, producer Darshan Grewal's unconventional approach changed everything. At the press conference on Tuesday, Dosanjh narrated, “For the first time when I was called to do Jatt & Juliet, I had an issue with the producer, Darshan Grewal. So I went to him to turn down the film, but when I went to his office, he gave me a blank cheque and asked me to put in any amount I wanted. I had never thought about this. So, I took my manager outside to discuss, and we decided that we cannot say no. We researched who charged the most in the industry then, it was Gurdaas Mann sir, so I decided to enter the same amount. We quoted him that amount along with TDS, so Darshan made us add Rs. 1 lakh more to the fees.”

Furthermore, Diljit recalled how the producer was bankrupt when the film began production. He revealed, “I signed the film, went to Canada, and Darshan went bankrupt. Then another producer came in, when his funds started to exhaust, another producer came in. Three-four times the franchise saw financial constraints. We wanted Neeru Bajwa on board and she used to charge a lot, so we decided to lie to her that we were all getting Rs. 5 lakh. She was paid more than all of us.”

He added, “If it wasn’t for Darshan Grewal, this film would have never been made. Even after the film became a hit, Darshan came to me with a blank cheque and asked me to fill the amount I desired. Actually, he is the one to set my standard in the industry.”

A decade after the last film, Jatt & Juliet 3 beautifully blends heartwarming nostalgia with the promise of a fresh story. Written and directed by Jagdeep Sidhu, the film appears to be a laugh riot with its fair share of heart-tugging moments. The stunning visuals, captured across picturesque locations in India and the UK, further enhance the viewing experience. Jaani's music adds another layer of magic to the film.

Fans will be further delighted by the return of the beloved supporting cast - Rana Ranbir and BN Sharma are back as Shampy and his father, ready to deliver their signature comedic timing.
