“Mujhe nahi lagta aisa kuchh hota hai. As I have said earlier also, my target is to do just one Bollywood film a year, because I have many Punjabi film commitments such as Carry On Jatta 2, so they will take up most of my time. I have always felt that every artist just needs to do his/her work with dedication. I have seen a lot of artists who have had a string of super flop films, but they were appreciated so much that they never had a shortage of work.”

“Aap Akshay (Kumar) paaji ko lijiye. He had back-to-back 14 flops, but he’s still number 1 today. This proves that only your work needs to be good", Gippy Grewal said.

Gippy Grewal's upocming Punjabi films include Subedar Joginder Singh, Carry On Jatta 2, Manje Bistre 2, Sheera and Pind Da Prince.
