Diljit Dosanjh recalls receiving cooking show offers after his Instagram videos during lockdown


Diljit Dosanjh is an amazing singer. But he also entertained his fans with funny videos of his cooking attempts throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown. The Punjabi star has won everyone over with her cooking videos on Instagram. When he was unable to show off his singing skills on stage, Diljit took to his kitchen to show off a whole new talent. Now the singer reveals that his cooking skills have become so popular that he has ended up getting various offers for commercials.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, the Born to Shine singer revealed, “It all started because there was no one to cook for me. I never had to worry about food. On sprouts , there was food arranged. The same goes for the shows. At home, mom cooked for me. I never had to deal with the strain of the kitchen. But the pandemic came. And no one was home and people were afraid to go to other people’s homes. My cook stopped too. Now I’ve always loved good food. I can’t eat just about anything .

He added that as an artist, there was an inherent urge to share his creations with his fans. And that’s how cooking videos came about, he said: “So I decided to look at the experts in this field. I researched and learned from YouTube. And when I learn something, I have this desire as a performer to share it with everyone. Since I had nothing else to post at the time, I shared these videos. There was an instant connection.

Citing all the wacky offers he received following his new ordeal, Diljit shared that he ultimately had to end it as his main career was as a singer. He said: “But then things started to spiral out of control. He shares, “I even got 2-3 spice ads. There was even an offer for a cooking show. But I said, don’t be so serious about it. I also have a lot of other work to focus on. People from the restaurant also approached. Kuch aur taraf chalne laga tha mera career (My career started to veer in another direction) so I had to withdraw it. I didn’t want to overdo it in the kitchen so I ended it all.

Diljit was recently seen in Jogi, an Ali Abbas Zafar director centered on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, with a cast including Kumud Mishra, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Hiten Tejwani and Amyra Dastur.
