Jagdeep Sidhu is unquestionably one of Punjabi cinema's most talented directors and writers. In addition to Qismat, Qismat 2, Sufna, and Lekh, the filmmaker has worked on a number of other successful films. Dildariyaan, a 2015 film, is one of them.

Dildariyaan, starring Jassie Gill and Sagarika Ghatge, became a fan favourite. But did you know that the film's writer, Jagdeep Sidhu, had a unique perspective on it? There are eight causes for this. And, in a recent Instagram post, Jagdeep revealed all of them. Discover why Jagdeep Sidhu holds Dildariyaan in such high regard.

Dildariyaan was Jagdeep Sidhu's debut film. This indicates that Sidhu enjoyed writing, but it was the story of this film that first brought him into the industry.

Jagdeep has revealed that the story of Dildariyaan was influenced by the Bollywood superhit Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge. While Shahrukh Khan and Kajol featured in DDLJ as two strangers who meet and fall in love, the plot of this Punjabi film took a similar path.
