Sargun Kaur talks about Sikhs in Ranbir Kapoor starrer Animal movie

She cited Akshay Kumar starrer Kesari and Ranbir Kapoor‘s movie Animal as examples of films that changed it. Sargun praised Sandeep Reddy Vanga and claimed that he was very particular about his movie. She talked about a scene wherein Aziz has to kill one of his Sikh cousins. The Sikh cousin bravely accepted his fate and bravely accepted his death, like a lion. “He (Sandeep) didn’t do it, just because he wanted to do it. He kept the valour of Punjabis intact throughout the film, and Arjan Vailey described it very very well. So I think even Bollywood is recognising that we are known for much more than that (being funny),” DNA quotes Sargun. Gippy Grewal also agreed with her point of view about the change in the perception and presentation of Sikhs in movies. He talked about how they would watch other Bollywood movies and wonder which kind of Punjabis there were. Now, he admits he has been seeing a change. Gippy also adds that there are no Punjabi songs per se in Bollywood. Apart from Arjan Vailly and Angezi Beat, he did not find proper Punjabi in songs and refused to sing for the same reason.
