Diljit Dosanjh Opens Up About His Broken Relationship With Parents

Diljit Dosanjh, a Punjabi singer and actor, has spoken out about being transferred to live with a relative in Ludhiana as a child. He said that his parents did this without consulting him because they intended to provide his fundamental requirements, which included food, housing, and education. He stated that, while he loves and respects his parents, this choice has damaged their relationship. 

Diljit said, "I was eleven years old when I left my home and started living with my maternal uncle. I moved to the metropolis, leaving my town behind. I moved to Ludhiana.

He stated, "I used to live alone in a small room. I used to just go to school and come back; there was no television. I had plenty of time. Also, we didn't have mobile phones back then, so calling home or receiving a call from my parents cost money. So I began to distance myself from my family." 

The singer-actor, 40, was born in the hamlet of Dosanjh Kalan in 1984. He began performing at local gatherings while still attending school in Ludhiana. Diljit, well known for his chart-topping pop tunes, rose to international popularity last year after performing at the Coachella music festival. His acting performances have also received critical recognition.

Diljit revealed that his parents wanted him to have a brighter future, which is why they decided to send him away from home. He said, "I have a great deal of respect for my mother. My father is a really kind person. He didn't ask me anything. He didn't even inquire about which school I attended. However, my relationship with them has broken. "Not just them, but everyone." 

On the professional front, Diljit is now appearing in Crew, starring Kareena Kapoor, Tabu, and Kriti Sanon. He will next appear in the film Amar Singh Chamkila.
