Diljit Dosanjh: Why will I be sad if Kylie Jenner is pregnant?

The actor, who is known to be a huge fan of the American reality TV star, says he will continue to admire her even if she gets pregnant '20 times'.


Actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh, a self-admitted fan of Kylie Jenner who often comments on her posts on various social media platforms, says he feels good after seeing photographs of the American reality TV star.

Asked about the news of Jenner's pregnancy, Dosanjh said, "I am a fan of Kylie Jenner. It's her life. That's good news [if she is pregnant]. Obviously, I am happy for her. 

"If she is pregnant why will I be sad? I am still her fan… she can get pregnant 20 times. I just like her. There are no expectations that I have from her. When I see her, I feel like I really know her. I feel good after seeing her [photographs]."

On the work front, Dosanjh is currently shooting for Soorma, a biopic on the life of former Indian hockey captain Sandeep Singh.

"I never knew Sandeep Singh is my fan as I had never met him earlier," the Punjabi film star said. "But his life story is really amazing. Whatever he has done in his life, nobody else could have done that. I don't know how he managed to stand on his feet after being hit by a gunshot [in 2006]."

Dosanjh said Sandeep Singh had helped with a lot of detailing in the film. "He and his brother [Bikramjeet Singh] are always on the set," he said.

"I never thought I would be working on somebody's biopic or somebody will offer me a role like this because I am a singer and don't have enough idea about acting. Biopic is a serious thing. I am not that serious [about acting]," he added.

Dosanjh, who has previously appeared in Hindi films Udta Punjab (2016) and Phillauri (2017), will be seen alongside Taapsee Pannu, Angad Bedi and Vijay Raaz in Soorma.

"I have sung a song in this film," he said. "This is the first time I have got a chance to sing in a Hindi film. The version of 'Ikk Kudi' which I sang was not part of Udta Punjab. Somebody else sang that song in the movie. After the film was made, Balaji Telefilms asked me to sing it. But in this film, I have one song. It's a romantic number. I have sung it for Taapsee."

Dosanjh believes a film belongs to a director and only he knows where the graph of the movie is heading.

"Only a director knows where and when the film is loosening up. An actor doesn't know this, he is just giving his scenes. A film doesn't belong to an actor — even when that movie becomes a hit. A film is a director's vision. Actors only get to know about a film when they themselves see it," he said.

"Actors can't do anything, they can only speak. Everything is looked after by the director. All of them try to do their best. The real essence of an actor's job comes from the quality of the film," he added.

Before starting the shoot for Soorma, Dosanjh took 15-20 days' training in playing hockey. The film will be released in July next year.
