Singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh apparently started getting marriage proposals after people got a glimpse of his character in the trailer of Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari. Not that the Punjabi pop star didn’t before, but the ladies seem to have taken a special liking for this role. The film directed by Abhishek Sharma also stars Manoj Bajpayee and Fatima Sana Shaikh.
Set in the year 1995, Diljit, in the film, plays Suraj Singh whose life turns topsy turvy when Madhu Mangal Rane — Manoj – enters his life. The latter runs a detective agency that does a background check on prospective grooms. Talking about the rishtas coming his way, Diljit told BT, “The trailer has received a great response and people have loved my character Suraj, and rightly so. He is warm and affable.
It’s important that mainstream films highlight relatable boys like Suraj. In pop culture, there’s too much emphasis on toxic masculinity and all the trappings that it entails. A family loving, accha munda needs to be popularised over the prevalent idea of bad boys that films have normalised. Suraj is all heart, and I am happy that people are liking him. Good guys need to be celebrated.”
