Last week the trailer of India’s first Punjabi language superhero film ‘Super Singh’ was released amidst much fanfare. The film stars Diljit Dosanjh and Sonam Bajwa in the lead. The movie is produced by Balaji Motion Pictures (who is making its foray into Punjabi cinema with Super Singh) and Bratt Films Production, with Anurag Singh in the director’s chair.
The first song from the music album of Super Singh was released today. Diljit Dosanjh shared the link to the youtube video on his twitter handle.

The song is a sweet romantic ballad called ‘Hawa Vich’ featuring Sonam Bajwa and Diljit, sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Diljit Dosanjh himself. The music has been composed by Jatinder Shah and lyrics have been penned down by Ranbir Singh.
This is Diljit’s second collaboration with Balaji and Ekta Kapoor, the first being the critically acclaimed ‘Udta Punjab’ which highlighted the drug menace in Punjab. Incidentally, Diljit has also collaborated with Anurag Singh, who directed him in award winning films like Punjab 1984 and the Jatt & Juliet series. So this seems like a cinematic union of people that work very well together.
Super Singh is all set to release in cinema halls all over India on June 16th, with English subtitles for the benefit of non- Punjabis who fail to understand the language. Also for the first time ever, the trailer of a Punjabi film will be played at cinemas nationwide on the weekend of the release of the Balaji film, Half Girlfriend, starring Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
Punjabi cinema is slowly but surely, getting the recognition it deserves, beyond the northern states of the country. And the scale on which Super Singh is being released is a testament to that.
