Earlier this week, DNA reported that actress Ileana D'Cruz, who was supposed to star opposite Diljit in the biopic of former Indian hockey captain Sandeep Singh, opted out of the film. "The dates for both, Diljit and Ajay Devgn's films, were clashing. She decided to choose the latter," a source told DNA. However, there's no official confirmation from either of the actor's side.
There were reports that Diljit might be casted in a film produced by Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. But he refuted the reports and told news agency PTI, "I am not doing anything in it. It's a big film and a big subject. I am not in the film." But he did confirm that he has Kaneda in the pipeline with Anushka and Arjun Kapoor. "It's very different from what people have seen me doing. I loved the story of Kaneda," Diljit told DNA.
Diljit Dosanjh is also expected to star opposite Sonakshi Sinha in Crazy Hum. His last release was a Punjabi film Super Singh.
