The Sikh singer-actor has found popularity in Indian showbiz with his versatile roles in films like "Udta Punjab", "Phillauri" and "Soorma". "An actor is more than his ethnicity and his religion. A filmmaker, a director has to be convinced and should be able to envision someone in a role, regardless of Sikh or not Sikh, if the filmmaker feels you suit the role, then that's perfect," Diljit had earlier told IANS.
Later this year, he will be seen in the film "Good News". The actor has even begun the shooting for the same along with Kiara Advani. Diljit shared the video from the sets and wrote that it is a dream come true for him to work with his favourite production house.
"Good News" is a laugh riot, a family drama in which Akshay-Kareena and Diljit-Kiara play married couples trying for a baby. The film is being directed by Raj Mehta and produced by Dharma Productions and Cape of Good Films. The film is slated to release on July 19, 2019.
