Diljit Dosanjh tried the central role. But he wouldn’t have been the first choice for the film. Ranveer Singh was the first choice for the role. Yes, you read that right. According to a report from TOI, Ranveer Singh was unable to move forward with the project as he was not free due to his busy schedule with his multiple projects, the creators then roped up Diljit. The report further mentioned that Sandeep Singh explained that during the editing of the film, Diljit was a purely Punjabi artist, so they chose Ranveer first. However, after his success at Udta Punjab and Phillauri, there was no qualms about hiring him.
