The trailer of Diljit Dosanjh's upcoming movie ‘Jogi’, based on the 1984 Delhi riots, has been released.
The official description on YouTube reads, “Jinke hausle buland ho, unki himmat todna namumkin hota hai. Aisa hi hai sadda Jogi. Watch Diljit Dosanjh in and as Jogi - a story that celebrates friendship, courage and hope”.
Based on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, the film is a gripping tale of bravery, friendship, hope and everything in between.
The film has been directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and features Kumud Mishra, Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub, Hiten Tejwani, and Amyra Dastur in pivotal roles.
Talking about Jogi at a recent Netflix event, Ali said, “It’s a film based in reality and on a real event. It was an important subject and needed to be told in an authentic way so that it looks real. We were lucky that we found Diljit. It was important and it made the story more justifiable.”
At the same event, Diljit Dosanjh said, “There was no reason to say no to doing Jogi. This is our story. Everyone around the world should know about this incident. So I had no reason to say no to this film.”
The film was shot while the pandemic was still official, during the first lockdown in Delhi and Punjab.
It’s slated to release on September 16, 2022 on Netflix.
