Unlike his fans, the Proper Patola singer is not over the moon with this crowning stroke. He says, “Jo ho raha hai, mere daayre se badi baat hai. Coachella is something I never even thought of, it was never in my plan. Whatever is happening in my life is (pauses) maybe I don’t even deserve it. I am just grateful to God.”
More than two decades ago, Diljit Dosanjh began his musical career by playing the tabla at a Gurudwara in Punjab. This journey from a small Gurudwara to a renowned global stage may be an incredible feat for some, but for Dosanjh it was not an extraordinary transition. “The music is still the same no matter if you’re performing in front of four people or on an enormous stage. Playing the tabla at the Gurudwara was just as important to me as performing in Coachella, although I haven’t done that yet. But I still remember that moment,” Dosanjh recollects with great affection.

He acknowledges that this is a major event for Punjabi music, and his friends are elated that “Punjabi boli” will be broadcast worldwide. He notes that the success of Punjabi music is due to hard work, and that he will not take this opportunity lightly.
Diljit Dosanjh is preparing for his set at the April music festival, following the success of his Born to Shine tour. When asked what it’s like to be on stage with a crowd of enthusiastic fans, Dosanjh replied, “When I’m on stage, it doesn’t feel like I’m performing. I’m in tune with the sound, and I just become a conduit of the music. It’s a really pure process.” He went on to explain that he gets more enjoyment out of making music than he does from making films. “I don’t get the same kind of thrill from shooting films that I do from creating music,” he said.
The Jogi actor, who recently celebrated his 39th birthday, shares that he does not believe in manifesting as he has experienced more than he expected. “I stopped manifesting because my vision is too small and whatever happens is bigger,” he adds. On Lohri, the actor is currently working on Imtiyaz Ali’s Chamkila.
