Kriti Sanon: Diljit Dosanjh is shy, but transforms when camera rolls
Kriti Sanon talks about her Arjun Patiala co-star Diljit Dosanjh
Kriti Sanon is working with Diljit Dosanjh for the first time in Arjun Patiala, and the actor wonders how the Udta Punjab (2016) star is able to transform himself into a character that is completely contradictory to his real shy self.
"I have met him few times and we are yet to start shooting for the film. We had our workshops in January. He is shy as a person, but the moment camera is on, he transforms. I don't know how he does it. He is a fantastic and talented actor," she says. The film, directed by Dinesh Vijan, revolves around lovers, played by Sanon and Dosanjh, who go through a number of hilarious situations that crop up due to their height difference.
As the title suggests, the film is set in Punjab. Sanon says, "It is more about Patiala peg - the largest peg - it is like larger-than-life. It has more to do with Patiala peg than the city." The film will see the Dilwale (2015) actor playing a journalist, who is smart and outspoken, while Dosanjh will portray the role of a small town guy.
"She is a crime journalist. I am doing something like this for the first time. The dialogues are funny, different and spicy. The film is going to be in Hindi, but there will be a Punjabi dialect," she adds. There have been reports about Sanon teaming up with director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK for a thriller, Farzi, but the actor, but the actor puts these rumours to rest.
"There are stories that are half true or not true, so I don't want to complicate it further. I have signed Arjun Patiala and have said yes to one more film, which is not Farzi," she clarifies. When prodded further, the 27-year-old actor says, "Every film has its own destiny and it will happen when it has to happen."
