The famous Punjabi singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh is facing backlash for his look in his upcoming movie, Chamkila. The Diljit Dosanjh fans were astonished to see him without his turban. In the movie, Diljit is playing the character of the iconic Amar Singh Chamkila.
Some Diljit Dosanjh fans applaud him for working on such a topic, while others are questioning his decision. Some of the users said Diljit himself said that he would never remove his turban for any role, so why is he doing this now?
Some people also have a problem with the fact that legendary music director AR Rehman is the music director of this film. People are making arguments that someone from the Punjabi music industry should’ve been the music director. But apart from all the comments, “Chamkila,” one of the most anticipated movies of the year, will be releasing soon on OTT platform Netflix.
Although this is not the first time Diljit Dosanjh has done a movie without his turban, in the year 2022 he was featured in the movie Jogi, a Hindi period drama where he was seen without his turban in some parts.
