One of the main names in Punjabi film nowadays is Diljit Dosanjh. After appearing in movies like Udta Punjab (2016), Phillauri (2017), Good Newz (2019), etc., he has established himself in Bollywood as well. Now, the actor will appear in Jogi. It is scheduled to debut on Netflix on September 16 and was directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, who also helmed Tiger Zinda Hai (2017).A star-studded event named “Netflix Films Day” was conducted by Netflix today, during which they revealed and discussed their upcoming movies in front of the stars and director. Ali Abbas Zafar, Hemanshu Mehra, and Amyra Dastur gave the media a special presentation of the Jogi trailer in this location.
Diljit Dosanjh will be shown sans a turban for the majority of the movie, according to the trailer. The 1984 anti-Sikh riots are the inspiration for Jogi. In order to conceal his Sikh heritage, Diljit’s character is shown taking off his turban and chopping off his hair with regret. Diljit Dosanjh will likely appear in a movie for the first time without a turban. Previously, Diljit had cited in many interactive session that “My favourite Bollywood directors have given me roles in movies, but I am unable to accept them because doing so would require me to remove my turban, which is not possible. My identity and my emotion are both turban.”Diljit Dosanjh, who participated in the ceremony through video conference despite being in London, stated that Jogi is an important movie for him and that it depicts a significant historical tale. Therefore, it makes sense that the actor changed his rule.
Well lets see and wait how the viewers react to it specially the Sikh community and how well does Diljit carries his persona without turban and whether that effects his potrayal and his performance. This will only be unveiled post the release of the film
