Diljit Dosanjh, the much-loved Punjabi actor and singer, who really garnered admiration cutting across all spectrums, has now been revealed as a misinformed, opportunistic, and borderline-Khalistani sympathiser in front of Indian audiences. With farmers from Punjab and Haryana gathered at Delhi’s western borders, a misinformed and hijacked agitation is becoming a major flashpoint between Indian nationalists and those who seek to ruin this country. For reasons best known to him, without an iota of legislative knowledge, Diljit Dosanjh has dumped his Indian audiences for a few Khalistanis abroad.
If Diljit Dosanjh thinks that it will be rosy for him here on and that life will continue as lavishly for him as it has over the years, the singer is in for quite a rude shock. Already, talks are abounding that the man has links to Khalistani elements. With him using his position of privilege and fame to fool Punjab’s farmers into believing that the three farm laws passed by India’s parliament are against their interests, Diljit is undoubtedly playing a very dangerous game.
The farmers’ protests are seeing the involvement of Khalistani elements, flooded with hateful speeches and spurious comments made by big celebrities who have come in their support. Diljit Dosanjh has even secretly donated 1 crore rupees to the protesting farmers to buy warm clothes. But his support and whitewashing of Khalistani elements are all set to affect his fan base and his recent entry into Bollywood negatively.
Dosanjh seems to have forgotten that in industries like the Indian Cinema, especially Bollywood, one’s public image really matters. Though Diljit has a Punjabi film Jodi and a Hindi film Kaneda in the pipelines, with his ugly Twitter fight with Kangana Ranaut and vociferous support of misinformed protests, he has paved the way for his slow but imminent destruction. Unless and until there is someone like Anurag Kashyap, not many would now be ready to invest on a person like Diljit, who is a closet misogynist, and purportedly roots for Khalistani secessionists.
Diljit Dosanjh is trying very hard to discount the fact that Khalistanis have made their way into the farmers’ protest. What really is going to work against him though is that Indian audiences see right through his duplicity. Has Diljit Dosanjh condemned Yograj Singh for his vile attack on Hindus and women? We think not. By going all out in support of a ‘movement’ which has been heavily compromised, Diljit Dosanjh is pushing what could have been a flourishing career, right into a dark pit.
