Diljit Dosanjh | Do You Know | Not just old wine in new bottle (Video)
The Punjabi actor-singer, Diljit Dosanjh talks about his excitement about his upcoming single Do You Know and the nerves he feels before the release of any of his new projects.
“My attempt is to give the fans something new each time. When a song becomes a hit, it is tempting to cash in on the success, and repeat the formula. But I also want to attempt new kinds of songs. Packaging old wine in a new bottle is not a novel thing in the industry,” he says.
Diljit also feels happy that many actors are turning to singing now. “People who have more than one talent should show it off. Aliaji (Bhatt) sang ‘Ikk kudi’ very well while Ayushmann (Khurrana) sir’s song, ‘Paani da’ is such a great song. I am his huge fan, as he sings well and acts well too,” he says.
However, Diljit doesn’t want to sing in all his movies. “I wasn’t aware that the makers of UP would want me to sing. They asked me to do so a month before the release. I don’t have the urge to sing in all my films. I haven’t sung, yet, in my next film with Anushka Sharma Phillauri. I am glad that they (Bollywood makers) are taking me seriously as an actor. But if they ask me, I will sing,” says the 32-year-old.
