On one hand, the nation is mourning owing to Pulwana Terrorist Attack which resulted in the loss of more than 40 soldiers’ lives including four from Punjab, it seems that some Punjabi celebrities are not much in tune with what’s happening in our country.
While Punjabi celebs like Ammy Virk and Ranjit Bawa have gone ahead to offer financial help to the martyrs’ families in Punjab, and people like Binnu Dhillon stopped promoting his film, Punjabi singer/actor Diljit Dosanjh is even now promoting his “Valentine’s Day” song – Gabru Nu. Close behind is Gippy Grewal, who also received some backlash for posting a ‘Manje Bistre 2’ promotional images.
Diljit’s Gabru Nu released on 14th Feb and the tragedy occured on the same evening as well. However, both on 15th and 16th Feb, Diljit Dosanjh has been posting about his song and this act of his, it seems hasn’t gone down too well with his fans.
Diljit Dosanjh had even pinned the “Perfect Date Night” Post On Twitter.
Perhaps fans are especially angry from Diljit because he is considered as the “role model” and youth icon by many.
Here are some of the reactions that Diljit is receiving on Twitter:
Not right time to launch song…..Punjabiat de mathe kalank ban rahe ne eh singers….
