Today a movie is incomplete it doesn’t have a Punjabi number in it! Agree? Mostly known for their singing Punjabi singers also showed their acting skills and that too at the big platform, Bollywood. Here are some of the famous Punjabi singers who worked as actors in the Bollywood films. However, most them failed to impress the audience with their acting.
1) Diljit Dosanjh
Diljit Dosanjh is a Punjabi actor, singer, television presenter and social media celebrity who works in Punjabi and Hindi cinema. He debuted in Bollywood as an actor with blockbuster Udta Punjab and even won Filmfare Award for it. The audience appreciated him as an actor too. His second film was Phillauri with Anushka Sharma, however, it didn’t perform well at the box office. But Diljit’s Dosanjh’s acting career didn’t affect. He is all set to come on the silver screen again with his upcoming flick Welcome to New York co-starring Sonakshi Sinha and Karan Johar.
2) Gurdas Maan
The legendary Punjabi singer is considered one of the most notable figures in the world of Punjabi music. He has done a number of Punjabi films. For his Bollywood movies like Zindagi Khoobsoorat Hai opposite Tabbu, he got mixed reviews for his acting skills.
3) Gippy Grewal
Known for top-notch singing, Grewal is one of the fine actors of Punjabi cinema too. But he failed to impress Hindi audience with his acting when he starred opposite Govinda’s daughter Tina Ahuja in the film Second Hand Husband.
4) Mika Singh
Mika Singh is known for his notorious social outings just as much as his foot-tapping Punjabi numbers. He acted in movies like ‘Mitti’, ‘The Film Love.Com’, ‘Loot’ and ‘Balwinder Singh… Famous Ho Gaya’, etc. However, what concerns us is that the Punjabi lad is undeterred by the viewers’ response and by no means looks in a mood to hang his acting boots anytime soon.
