Diljit Dosanjh recalls proposing girl for marriage at the age of 8 and running away from home

In a chat with Raj Shamani on his podcast, Diljit was asked about the story of him leaving his home once at the age of 8. Diljit recalled the funny incident and the actual story behind it. The Crew actor revealed, 'I tried to run away from my home at the age of 8. There was a girl in my school, and because of her I tried to run away from my house.'

He recalled that his seniors were asking everyone which girl they liked, and he pointed to a girl and said he liked her. His senior then told him to confess his feelings to her and said they would get married.

He said, 'I went to the girl and told her that you and I will get married. She went and complained to my teacher and my teacher was like ‘Go get your parents.’ For me, it was the end of the world.'


Diljit further added that he opened the fridge, "picked two bananas and some other fruits, took his cycle, and just left". He went about five minutes away from his house when one of the villagers yelled at him to go back home. So, that villager made Diljit return home when he tried to leave.

The next day, Diljit Dosanjh lied about having a stomach ache and skipped school for two days. Surprisingly, his teacher also let him stay home.
