Though we've spotted Diljit in a snapback many a times but on-screen this actor will not be seen without his turban!
Eh asi nahi kehnde ohne aap keha hai..
In recent interview with Bombay Times, Dosanjh announced that he will not be doing characters without his turban. When asked whether he would be affected by the limitation of roles that a turbaned actor can do in Bollywood films, he said, “Isn’t that good? Why can’t I play a variety of characters as a Sardar? Jab main Punjab ko represent karunga, toh aise hi look mein hoga. I won’t take up non-Sardar roles.”
He even said that he'll not do comic roles in Bolly flicks, beside the fact that he's done quite a few rom-coms in Pollywood. The reason, according to him, is that before entering Bollywood he had made up his mind to restrict himself from doing comic roles and restrict others from making jokes at him.
He said, "Jitna mazaak udna tha, udd gaya. I want to do solid work here. I don’t mind playing a thief, but the character has to be good. Mere sar par jo hai (turban), usko main kharaab nahin kar sakta.”
