The minister, who gifted Diljit the honour from the Government of Canada, had flown to India and was attending the show.

Expressing his joy, Diljit shared the image with his fans on social media. He thanked god for such a great moment and wrote, “honourable Harjit Singh Sajjan Ji, Defense Minister of Canada, presented me with his Personal Minister of National Defense Coin of Honor given for excellence.”

Diljit’s popularity knows no bounds. In India, Diljit is one of the most popular actors in Punjab, who has put his strong foot forward in Bollywood with Bollywood hits Udta Punjab and Phillauri.

The actor will soon fly to Canada for a concert, Dream Tour. The tickets have already been sold out with fans sharing pictures of their selfies with Diljit’s poster.

The actor is prepping up for Super Singh, a Punjabi superhero film, directed by Anurag Singh.

The film, which is scheduled for a June 16 release, also stars Sonam Bajwa in the lead role.
