wowed Indian audience with his performance in .  And in his next, Phillauri, he will be seen with Anushka Sharma.

But as per the singer-turned-actor, he is an accidental movie star. “I feel happy when people hire me only as an actor. Then I think they are serious about me. They don’t just want me to sing for their movie,” said Diljit to popular daily, whose songs like Ikk Kudi & Proper Patola are hugely popular.

He added, “I end up singing in most of my Punjabi films because that saves my Punjabi producer’s money. But my independent music scene is going good, so I’m not hungry to sing for films. Being able to sing for myself is enough for me.”

Meanwhile, though he is not much of a sportsman himself, Diljit has associated himself with a kabaddi league. He hopes the sport gains more popularity in the future. “I have played kabaddi as a child. The game has a major following in Punjab.”
