San Francisco | The scene turned a comic turn when during the Nagar Kirtan (Sikh Parade) held to pay homage to the martyrs of operation blue star 1984, some one torn off the posters of Diljit Dosanjh’s upcoming film Punjab 1984. These posters were displayed near the main stage where photographs and posters of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawala were placed. Punjab 1984 is releasing on 1984. Diljit Dosanjh has especially thanked these young guys by sharing their photograph on his official facebook fan page.

Jodha Josan, A Sikh believer and journalist who was present at the occasion shared through his facebook that near the main stage of Nagar Kirtan photographs and posters of Sant ji and other martyrs were displayed. A big screen was also placed there and a documentary was screened related to operation blue star. Singers were singing the songs of bravery on the stage. I was astonished to see the posters of Diljit Dosanjh’s upcoming Punjabi film Punjab 1984. Then suddenly someone from the gathering torn off the posters and dumped them into trash bin. Youngsters promoting the film tried to silently escape from the location after finding themselves in awkward situation. Jodha told that he was broadcasting the event for Global Punjab TV along with Jagdev Singh Bhandal. “When we tried to ask questions from those youngsters that what Diljit has done till date to help the victims of 1984 and what share he will contribute to help them out of revenue earned by the film Punjab 1984. Just to escape from the questions those youngsters went away” Jodha added.
