The Hush Post: Top Punjabi actor-cum-singer Diljit Dosanjh has been conferred with the prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke Award for the most trending personality of the year.
Immediately after the announcement, Diljit took to Instagram to share his feelings and wrote, “@dpiff_official DadaSaheb Phalke Award Most Trending Personality 2018 DOSANJHANWALA.”
He first came into limelight with a Punjabi movie in 2012 Jatt& Juliet followed by a string of other successful Punjabi films.
Diljit will next be seen in a movie called Soorma in which he will play the role of former India hockey captain Sandeep Singh. He has already said that the role was very challenging.
“I was put through intense training for the role. Physically, it was tough to pull off this film. I had a lot of problem after the shoot wrapped up. When I was filming, I had stopped consuming sugar, and also minimised the intake of salt,” said Diljit.
Earlier, Diljit also won the hearts of many through his performance in Udta Punjab and also in Phillauri.
Apart from the national awards, the Dada Saheb Phalke awards are considered to be very prestigious and are presented on the day national awards are given.
