Final Thoughts

It won’t be wrong to say that Punjabi is rooted deep within Bollywood, as a matter of fact, the very first Hindi film was actually made by Punjabis!

Bollywood has always seen Punjabis riding the high tide be it the yesteryear cinema or modern one and even today, one can easily make out how every film craves Punjabism in it.

On that note, the Punjabi actors mentioned above are hard working, smart working, talented and dedicated.They just need to choose their scripts and stories well.

Lastly, their “timing factor” and “luck factor” need to work well too, Concludes Hirav Shah.
