The singer-actor recalled how and why his parents sent him to Ludhiana when he was just 11 years old. “I shifted from my home when I was 11. I moved to my uncle’s house in Ludhiana from my village. My uncle had told my father, ‘Isko mere saath sheher bhej do (send him to the city with me).’ My parents agreed and said, ‘Haanji le jaao (take him with you).’ Nobody asked me if I wanted to go or not”.

Dosanjh said that he felt lonely there and couldn’t even call his parents. “I was very fond of Diwali and Holi. But in Ludhiana, I used to live alone in a room. There was no TV also. I just used to go to school and come back. I used to have a lot of free time in hand since there were no mobile phones. I couldn’t call my parents because the calls were expensive,” Dosanjh shared with Ranveer Allahbadia on his podcast BeerBiceps.
