Diljit Dosanjh, who started his career as a Punjabi singer and then rose to stardom with his acting skills is now an unchallenged Punjabi Superstar. However, Diljit’s stardom is not limited to Punjab as he is also popular in Bollywood. If Diljit’s songs were any less, his Bollywood debut movie “Udta Punjab” took his stardom to a new level and he became the new rising star of India.
Diljit had already won a Filmfare award for Best debut male earlier this year and now he has been honoured by IIFA too.
The star who has always thanked his fans for the love, was humble as always while receiving the honour in New York. The award was presented by none other than his Udta Punjab actress Alia Bhatt who also won the Best actress award for the same film.
Now being the first Punjabi Singer and Actor to win an IIFA trophy was indeed a proud moment for Diljit who gave a heart melting speech. The actor thanked his fans, Punjabi audience, and cinema first for giving him a dream start and then also showed thankful gestures for his Udta Punjab team.
He later shared the video on his Instagram account and the caption read-
“#AukaatGhatKirpaZyada 🙏 Congratulations @aliaabhatt Ji @shahidkapoor Bhaji for Winning the #BestActor & #bestactress Award @iifa#AbhishekchaubeyBhaji #UdtaPunjab 🙏 #LoveMyFans”

Though he has always surprised us with his humble nature, he again bowled us over when he bow down in front of Alia Bhatt who presented him the award. He then kissed his trophy first and started his speech with the spiritual quote.
“Waheguru Ji Da Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Di Fateh.” Thank you IIFA, Thank you Punjabi cinema, I am here because of Punjabi cinema, thank you so much Punjabi audience, I am not worth it and I thank IIFA’s team and Udta Punjab’s team”.
The way he is now, we would like to see him the same in future as well. Diljit has actually made his every fan proud and we hope he continues to do so and wish the immensely blessed star a great future ahead.
