Melbourne, 29 July: Popular Punjabi film star, TV actor and singer, Gurpreet Ghuggi is all set for his political role in Punjab, after recently joining the Aam Admi Party (AAP). The veteran of many Punjabi TV shows and movies is confident he will work for the ‘happiness of Punjab’ in his new role, where state elections are due next year.
“I will fulfil the urges of the Punjab people but will not leave films”, he said answering to a question at the Thornbury Theatre during a media interaction. He also disclosed he might take a break from show business but will do a few movies as and when necessary.
Accompanied by Punjabi actor Gippy Grewal, the actor turned politician is in Melbourne to do a stage show “Desi Rockstar”.
“ Sakun mil raha hai (feel mentally peaceful) after joining politics and now want to give maximum to Punjab which has given me so much,” Ghuggi said.
On a question by SAT, Ghuggi agreed that acting in cinema and being in politics is helpful and at times they are complimentary.
“My goal in politics will be to make Punjab move ahead”, he said.
Gippy Grewal talked about his forthcoming movie ‘Lock’ which he co-stars with Gurpreet Ghuggi. “This will be a new type of Punjabi film with few actors and songs”, he said.
Both the actors agreed that the social media and You Tube have made people more conscious and movies are more scrutinised and commented by viewers.
