Mumbai, Aug 19 (IANS) Actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh is very choosy when it comes to Hindi films. Hence, one can be assured about his next film 'Jogi' to be a good piece of work.
The film is headed to OTT for a release next month. Set in Delhi in 1984, 'Jogi' also stars Kumud Mishra, Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub, Hiten Tejwani and Amyra Dastur.
The film unravels the story of a resilient friendship and courage in times of adversity when the national capital city was plagued by riots after former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's assassination.
Talking about the film, Diljit said in a statement: "Playing the role of Jogi has been one of the most fulfilling experiences and I am excited for my digital debut on Netflix. The entire team has worked really hard to bring to life this beautiful story and I want to thank Ali and Himanshu for trusting me with this role."
The film has been directed and co-produced by Ali Abbas Zafar, who is known for blockbusters such as 'Sultan' and 'Tiger Zinda Hai'.
Commenting on the film heading straight to Netflix, Ali Abbas Zafar said: "Jogi' is a very special film to me and who better than Diljit to helm the role of 'Jogi'! It's about hope, brotherhood and courage in the times of adversity and is a story of how tough times very often unite different people."
Produced by Himanshu Kishan Mehra and Ali Abbas Zafar, 'Jogi' will premiere on Netflix on September 16, 2022.
Noted Kashmiri singer and musician Qaisar Nizami has been nominated for the prestigious Grammy award for his collaborative song 'Nazninay' (O Beauty), which forms a part of US-based music composer and santoor player Ehsaan Matoori's multinational 'The Voice and Bridges' project.
After four collaborations back to back with 'Khyaal Rakhya Kar', 'Khad Tenu Main Dassa', 'Nehu Da Vyah' and 'Ex Calling', Neha is again working with her husband and musician Rohanpreet for the new song. Penned and composed by Garry Sandhu, with music by Rajat Nagpal and directed by Rajan Bir, 'Do Gallan' is a duet by the young couple.
Furthermore Alka Yagnik, Kumar Sanu and Udit Narayan can be seen performing Garba in the show. Celebrating the festivities, the singers are also seen enjoying some sweets and revealing their fondest memories. Host Aditya Narayan will be singing with his father. The set will be adorned with a life-size idol of Goddess Durga.
Khan is known for her songs 'Ttliaan Warga', 'Jaani Ve Jaani' and others. But now if the speculation is to be believed she is now returning back to the show. Most probably it is expected that she will join the contestants.
