When Diljit Dosanjh talked about Bollywood not portraying Sikhs properly

Previously, during an interview with Anubhav Singh Bassi on Netflix India’s YouTube channel, Diljit Dosanjh talked about how Bollywood misrepresents Punjabi actors. When the host heaped praises on Diljit for his dress sense and swag, the singer said that he isn’t fond of clothes or swag, but he wanted to show Bollywood stylists how Punjabi people wear clothes. In his words:

“To be honest, I am not fond of clothes or swag. When we were in Punjab, the Bollywood films made at the time… they didn’t show Sikhs properly. So, I decided that when I do Bollywood films, I’ll dress better than all Bollywood stylists. I know fashion. Because Punjab has a direct connection with mainstream fashion with no barriers between.”
