Hindi Film Industry Accepted Me With Open Arms: Diljit Dosanjh

Mumbai: Actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh, a popular name from the Punjabi film industry, has penned an open letter after the success of his latest release Phillauri to thank the Hindi film industry for accepting him with open arms.

Diljit ventured into Bollywood with 2016 film Udta Punjab.

"I do not have enough words to express my gratitude towards the Hindi film industry, which has given birth to innumerous superstars, an industry which has fulfilled innumerous dreams, an industry which has expressed Indian emotions, showcased beauty in diversity of our culture, tradition, language on a global platform," Diljit wrote on Facebook on Sunday.

"The Hindi film industry, which accepted me with open arms, blessed me with love and made this journey possible... I am highly grateful to every individual involved who has directly or indirectly contributed in my career, right from the beginning," he added.

After his successful career as a singer, Diljit made his acting debut with 2011 Punjabi film The Lion of Punjab. He later went on to star in hit films like Jatt & Juliet, Punjab 1984 and Sardaarji.

Phillauri, which also stars Anushka Sharma and Suraj Sharma, has minted Rs 15.25 crore in its opening weekend.
