Diljit Dosanjh said, “When I was narrated the script of Udta Punjab, I found their intention right.”

Punjab Cabinet minister Gulzar Singh Ranike Thursday targeted Punjab actor-and-singer Diljit Dosanjh for being a part of the controversial drug-themed Bollywood film, Udta Punjab.

Ranike, who was in Sangrur to chair a meeting of SAD’s Scheduled Caste (SC) cell, said, “Diljit Dosanjh is a Punjabi and he should not have been part of a movie which has been made to defame Punjab.

He will be projecting a wrong image of Punjab through this movie and he should be ashamed of doing so.”

Interestingly, actor Shahid Kapoor, who is also a part of the film, is a Punjabi. But Ranike focused his attack only on Dosanjh, who is at the moment a popular actor of Punjabi cinema and has a great fan following in the state.

Meanwhile, defending Dosanjh, Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann, who himself is an actor, said, “What can a SAD minister understand about actors and their work. Now, will SAD ministers teach us what role we should play and what we should not?”
