Ever since Punjabi sensation actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh signed the much-talked about film Udta Punjab, this Gabru has become high in demand. Without doubt, this actor has proven his acting skills in many Punjabi movies and is creating a buzz in the Punjabi industry and now in Bollywood as well.
After working with Kareena Kapoor Khan in Udta Punjab, this lucky man has bagged another Bollywood project with none other than Virat Kohli’s ex Anushka Sharma. Phillauri, as the project is called, is Anushka’s home production. Now, that’s a really big opportunity for current Punjabi heartthrob Diljit Dosanjh.
Anushka Sharma confirmed the information on Twitter just a few hours ago:

Phillauri will be directed by debutant director Anshai Lal starring Anushka Sharma, Diljit Dosanjh and Suraj Sharma, who also featured in Ang Lee’s Life of Pie (2012).
Diljit Dosanjh also expressed his happiness with this tweet:

Anushka, it is learnt, had dropped Ayushman Khurrana from the film to select Diljit. A lucky man indeed! Diljit will also have a role to play in Priyanka Chopra’s production house movies in the upcoming days. So do we interpret this like this that Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and many more hot actresses are wanting to act with Diljit Dosanjh? Not bad Sardaarji!
Phillauri will go on floors in April.
