The Punjabi film industry is full of multi-talented artists. There are just a few singers who haven’t tried their hands in acting, rest have either made acting their first profession or returned back to singing. Few others have stepped into acting first and then landed into singing. But did you know that Dil Le Gayi fame singer Jasbir Jassi has also tried his hands in acting almost 8 years back?
Singer Jassi Jasbir made his acting debut in the year 2011. It was a Punjabi movie titled Khushiyaan which was directed by Tirlok Malik in which the actor came as the main lead. The movie was written by Rajan Gangahar and had many famous character actors like Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rama Vij, Master Shrey Bawa and Deep Dhillon. Produced by Darshan Garg, D.P. Goyal and Pradeep Bansal the movie was about Raj and his wife who are settled in New York but even though he is a successful architect, something haunts him and tells him that he needs to go back to his village and settle terms with his family.
The role of his wife was played by Bollywood actress Tisca Chopra. Tisca, who has been recognized for her work in Bollywood movies like Taare Zameen Par, and more, made her Punjabi debut with this movie. The actress came back to the industry with the critically acclaimed movie Qissa in the year 2013. After Qissa, even she disappeared from the Punjabi film industry.
We wonder why didn’t singer Jasbir Jassi continue his acting in the industry. Being a famous face he would have had quite scope in the Punjabi market but who knows in what line did he find his “Khushiyaan”.
