Diljit Desanj in Udta Punjab
How appropriate can you get on casting? When the film’s title has Punjab in it and all the three actors signed being Punjabis in real life, how can you not have a Punjabi actor taking charge on board? Though we were quite happy with Fawad Khan’s name doing the rounds for the same role in Udta Punjab and reported about it last week only, director Abhishek Chaubey is in no mood to cross borders and has thus roped in Diljit Desanj in Udta Punjab. Diljit will be paired opposite Kareena Kapoor in the film which also stars Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt and deals with the drug abuse problem in Punjab. Udta Punjab is to open in 2016.
