Popular Punjabi star Diljit Dosanjh, who is currently riding on the success of his recently released film ‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari’ talks about his role in the film.
The Punjabi singer had to learn Marathi for his role in the film and he admits that picking up a new language is not easy.
“The things that a man must do for love! My character had to learn Marathi for his lady love and I had to for the love for my film. It’s the kind of movie that’s so seeped in innocence that you want to work towards making it better. My character speaks Marathi quite a few times in the film. He is a Bombay boy, so it’s a part of his lingo,” said Diljit to a leading news agency.
He further added, “Picking up a new language is always difficult but that was a requirement in this film. It felt authentic. So when my character had to woo Fatima’s character, he used these adorable Marathi lines. Those scenes are kinda heartwarming. It was such a joy to see the work you’ve put in come alive on screen. It’s the kind of simple, uncomplicated love that we don’t celebrate enough anymore.”
Released on November 15, it is first new Bollywood film released after lockdown.
