Those artists are fortunate who get to see success and stardom and have their work recognised. A lot of names get lost in the world of music and films. A lot of people see their dreams getting shattered and losing hope. And the ones, who get acclaim for all the hard work and dedication, are indeed the lucky ones.
Sargun Mehta is one such actress who, with her talent and passion has made it big in the television and film industry. She started her career as television actress and host, and has not looked back since. She comes from a punjabi family hailing from Chandigarh and as such was also appropriate to be cast in Punjabi films as well.
Beginning her journey in Pollywood, Sargun Mehta acted in a lead role opposite Amrinder Gill in the period drama titled ‘Angrej’. Her role as Dhann Kaur was appreciated by the audience and the critics and she was able to very beautifully kindle a rustic charm to her character.
Following the immense success of ‘Angrej’, Sargun was again cast opposite Amrinder Gill in ‘Love Punjab’. This movie shattered the international market records of two other Bollywood movies which were released on he same day: ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Airlift’. It was a movie rooted in Punjab, compelling the viewers to stay close to and proud of their origins. Sargun’s acting was again appreciated in this movie.
In the course of just two years, Sargun made an impact on her newly garnered Punjabi audience and was able to create a mark with her choice of movies and her acting.
In 2017, Sargun was again paired up with Amrinder Gill for a romantic and emotional drama titled ‘Lahoriye’. Going beyond the borders of this country in this film, Sargun played the role of a Muslim woman from Pakistan who makes a Punjabi man from India fall for her. The drama enfolds and shows how two people of different religions and countries come together, after much disagreement from their families, by connecting their values of the same culture as Punjabis. Sargun won the Filmfare award (Punjabi) for best actress for this film.
With all the accolades and appreciation, Sargun has indeed become very popular with the directors and is one of the most preferred Pollywood actress of this day. Her success in movies also took her to act in a song ‘Qismat’ sung by Ammy Virk. The song was an instant hit, Sargun’s natural and emotional portrayal of a woman betrayed by both her to-be husband and lover made many eyes wet.
The song was so loved that we will soon be having Sargun Mehta and Ammy Virk starring together in a movie by the same name. It seems like Sargun is on a roll for Punjabi films and why wouldn’t she be though! She has always portrayed her roles with such perfection.
And recently, news has it that she will also be paired opposite Gippy Grewal in the upcoming ‘Chandigarh Amritsar Chandigarh’. It is of course a big news for Sargun to be sharing screen space with an actor like Gippy who is already an established name in the Punjabi film industry. Apart from that, she is all set to start shooting for another movie titled ‘Kala Shah Kala’ with veteran actor Binnu Dhillon and singer turned actor Jordan Sandhu.
With every film she has touched, has become a super-hit and we are hoping this trend of Sargun and super-hits will continue for a long time in Pollywood.
