Shivjeet Singh Maan from Punjab 1984 has been one of the most iconic roles played by Diljit Dosanjh. Not only did he create a buzz in the Punjabi film circle, but the same role also made him venture into Bollywood.
We all could connect with the pain Shivjeet was going through. The innocent college going boy whose life turned after his father's sudden death. The scene where he breaks down and hugs the soil and rubs it all over his chest remembering his father, made us cry with him. It was his mental torture and even the physical one, but we suffered along with him through the movie.
The power pact head-on dialogues or the emotions of missing home, we related to each and everything. That last gunshot which killed Shivjeet pierced through our heart with equal pain as we wanted him to unite with his mother.
By far, Shivjeet Singh Maan from Punjab 1984 is Diljit Dosanjh's role to remember. Punjab 1984 is a national award-winning Punjabi film which was directed by Anurag Singh and starred Kirron Kher, Diljit Dosanjh, Sonam Bajwa, Pawan Raj Malhotra in main roles. The film was released in the year 2014.
