In an interview with Connect FM Canada, Boney said, “He (Diljit) was always a good actor. In fact, long time back I had planned a film with him and Priyanka Chopra. It was to be called ‘Sardarni.’ That’s the time Priyanka got this offer of going to Hollywood to shoot for Quantico. So, she asked us to wait for some time.”

The producer said that even after deciding to wait, Priyanka signed the second season of Quantico. He said, “She was offered the second season, so finally we had to give up because she got stuck there, and the kind of appreciation she got, she got certain other offers there. She preferred to make a career there, and we had to drop that picture.”

He further praised Diljit and said, “I’ve seen his Punjabi films and even the Hindi films that he has done. He is a remarkable actor, he has a fantastic sense of comedy, his sense of timing is fantastic, a good singer, and a talented guy. So, it’s always good to have a fresh mix of actors in a film to get freshness.”
