Diljit Dosanjh says he can’t network in Bollywood, reveals he has seen actors video call producers from sets: ‘Hadd ho gayi’ – The Indian Express
Diljit Dosanjh said he doesn’t blame those who network to get work, but it is not the way he plans to take his career ahead.
Diljit Dosanjh can sing ,dance and act– but not network.
The actor-singer says he is more focused on creating music than featuring in Bollywood films, which require him to network and mingle with people..
Diljit, who has featured in Hindi films like Udta Punjab, Good Newwz and Jogi, told Film Companion in an interview that he has seen actors video call producers as many as six times from the sets– something which is impossible for him..

Music is my love that I will do.
I am not born and brought up in Mumbai, I don’t even know many people here.
Earlier I used to feel it’s my minus point that I can’t mingle with people but now I feel it’s a plus that thankfully I can’t do that.
“I can’t do networking, I can’t attend parties, can’t call people up everyday.
I just can’t do this,” he added..
Diljit said he doesn’t blame those who network to get work, because the system is such that the more one networks the more chances of getting work.
They also know it but it is not their fault, I think this is how it works,” he said..
Diljit revealed how people have often attempted to bribe his manager to get him to sign a film, unaware that him and his team won’t fall for the this.
“My manager tells me how people tell her, ‘Diljit se film kara de main tujhe gift duga’ (Make him do our film, we will gift you)..
It is not their fault, they are right in their place, but I don’t fit in this,” he added..
Diljit last starred in the Hindi film Jogi, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
