Diljit Dosanjh has worked in many Bollywood movies since his debut in Udta Punjab including Phillauri, Welcome to New York, Soorma and Good Newwz among others. A lesser-known fact about the Sauda Khara Khara singer is that he had actually made his first Bollywood appearance in Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'souza's Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya. 

Dosanjh had sung Pee Pa Pee Pa, a dance number for the movie and was also given the opportunity to feature in the song's video. He had a rather stylish entry with a black turban and a coordinated white suit with black trimmings. Diljit was shown as a superstar with his fans rushing to get his autograph. Pee Pa Pee Pa is all about why a Jat (person belonging to North India) decides to drink alcohol, mentioning two reasons:

  1.  When he's in love 
  2.  When the person he's in love with does not reciprocate with the same feelings.
