Diljit Dosanjh, Shehnaaz Gill and Sonam Bajwa’s Punjabi film Honsla Rakh is off to a playing start, breaking several records at the box office. The comedy-drama, which released on October 15, collected Rs 2.55 crore all over India on its opening day, reportedly becoming the highest opening Punjabi film ever. The Amarjit Singh Saron directorial's worldwide collection on its opening day has been recorded at Rs 5.05 crore.
Diljit Dosanjh on Sunday penned a note of gratitude for his fans.
"#HonslaRakh AH CHAKK.. Shatters All PUNJABI Film OPENING DAY RECORDS RECORD SHECOD BANA SHADEYA JE.. Ki Paye Karende Hon.. ENJOY WITH YOUR FAMILY FOLKS," he wrote on Instagram.
Diljit debuted as a producer with the movie, which is also Shehnaaz Gill’s first feature film.
Shehnaaz was away from the spotlight for over a month after the death of rumoured boyfriend, actor Sidharth Shukla.
In an interview during the last-leg of promotions of the film, the actor said she is 40% like her role in the film. This led her to speak about love and attachment.
"Jab hum kisiko bhi pyaar karte hai, toh uske saath jo attachment hoti hai, toh woh attachment ke accordingly, maine woh ratio nikali. (When we love someone, the emotional attachment we share with the person, with that attachment, I accordingly calculated the ratio)," she said.
Talking about a mother's love, she said, "Pyaar jo hai na. Matlab Maa ka jo pyaar hota hai na, woh Maa ko hi pata hai. Aur main Maa wala feel kar sakti hun. Kyunki, meri mummy mujhe kitna pyaar karti hai. (Love is like this. Only a mother will know what a mother’s love is. And I can feel the motherly emotion. Because my mummy loves me that much.)"
