Diljit Dosanjh talks about Sidhu Moosewala tragedy 

Back in May this year, the entire country was shocked by the gruesome killing of popular Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala. The singer was traveling in his jeep along with his friend and cousin in his hometown when some assailants ambushed and shot him dead. In a recent media interaction, Diljit Dosanjh has stated that it pains him to think about such tragedies.

In one of his concerts earlier this year, Diljit had paid tribute to Sidhu as well as Punjabi actor-activist Deep Sidhu and kabaddi player Sandeep Singh Sandhu. Talking about them, Diljit told Film Companion, "All three are big names. They worked hard in their career. I don’t think an artiste can do something wrong with anyone. So why will someone kill them? It is extremely saddening. His parents… it is tough to even talk about it. Think about it, that your only child passes away.. how are the parents dealing with it. Only they know their pain. What happened with them is huge. Ye 100 per cent sarkaar ki nalayaki hai aur ye politics hai, jo bohot gandi hai."

He continued, “We have not come in this world to kill, but this has been happening for a long time, artistes have been killed before too. Chamkila was killed, Dilshad Akhtar was killed, Veerendra, a film artiste, was also shot dead. To kill someone is just terrible– you can’t end someone’s life. When I had started, there were problems, people would think why is he succeeding but to just kill someone… This is government fault. I hope God gives the family the strength and they are fighting it strongly.”

On the work front, Sidhu was last seen in the film 'Jogi' which is based on the 1984 Sikh massacre.
