About

Singer, actor, film producer, and TV presenter Diljit Dosanjh is one of the most popular entertainers in India, and his global star is still rising. As an actor, Dosanjh has starred in some of the most commercially successful Punjabi movies in history (such as Jatt & Juliet, Jatt & Juliet 2, Punjab 1984, Sardaar Ji, Ambarsariya, Sardaar Ji 2, Super Singh, Sajjan Singh Rangroot, Shadaa, and Honsla Rakh). Meanwhile, as a musician, Dosanjh is known for his accessible blend of pop, Punjabi, Bhangra, hip-hop, and classic Sikh music.

Having recorded an impressive 13 studio albums over nearly two decades, Dosanjh's 2020 album G.O.A.T. went to No. 1 on Billboard's Top Triller Global chart and went Top 20 in Canada. His track "Lover," from his 2021 MoonChild Era LP, has hit more than 70 million views on YouTube.

Born in 1984 in Punjab's Phillaur tehsil, Jalandhar district, Dosanjh began his singing career by performing Kirtan (Sikh religious music) at local gurdwaras (places of worship). He released his first album, Ishq Da Uda Ada, in 2004. He released his follow-up album, Dil, that same year. 

Dosanjh's breakthrough occurred when his third album, Smile, hit in 2005. It featured the tracks "Nachdiyan Alran Kuwariyan" and "Paggan Pochviyan Wale." In 2006, Dosanjh released the LP Ishq Ho Gaya, and Chocolate arrived two years later. Across the remainder of the decade, Dosanjh released a handful of singles -- "Bhagat Singh," "No Tension," "Power of Duets," and "Dance with Me" -- plus his sixth studio album, 2009's The Next Level.

By the start of the '10s, Dosanjh began to appear in a run of Punjabi films, including 2011's The Lion Of Punjab, which featured his highly successful single "Lak 28 Kudi Da." He also appeared in 2011's Jihne Mera Dil Luteya, to which Dosanjh also contributed six songs to the soundtrack. From 2012 to 2022, Dosanjh was featured in 14 more Punjab films, including Jatt & Juliet, Jatt & Juliet 2, Ambarsariya (which won him the Filmfare Award for Best Actor), Sardaarji, Sardaarji 2, Honsla Rakh, Jodi, and more.

Dosanjh has also appeared in a number of Hindi-language films, including Tere Naal Love Ho GayaUdta Punjab, Phillauri, Welcome to New York, Soorma, Arjun Patiala, Good Newwz, and Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari

In 2022, Dosanjh signed a deal with Warner Music and has been planning crossover singles with Canadian rapper Tory Lanez and Tanzanian star Diamond Platnumz.
