He said his journey in the film turned out to be great.

“Jab yeh film mujhey offer hui phele maine mana kar dia thaa. 2 reasons they. Ek mainey kabhi hockey nahi kheli thee life mai, doosra Punjab mai already 2 films ban rahi thee hockey (When I was offered this film, at first I refused to take it up because of two reasons. I had never played hockey in my life and a couple of films on hockey were already being made in Punjab).”

“Par but thx to @sneharajani_ mam #shaadalisir @chitrangda ji jinki vajha se mainey yeh film ki (Thanks to Sneha Rajani, Shaad Ali and Chitrangada, I did this film),” he said.

Diljit said he doesn’t have any friends in the film industry but Angad Bedi, who played his brother in “Soorma”, is like a brother in real life, too. He added that he loved working with Taapsee Pannu and that he learned a lot from actor Satish Kaushik.

“@shankar.mahadevan sir ke saath gana karna dream thaa woh bhi poora hua..aur woh bhi #gulzaarsaab ka likha gana #ishqdibaajiyaan (I fulfilled my dream of working with Shankar Mahadevan on a song in the film, and that to a song penned by Gulzar Saab),” said the actor-singer.

Diljit recalled Vijay Raaz as a very funny person, adding that the two had a lot of fun on the sets.
