Miscellaneous Info – Daljeet Puri’s real name was Jogendra Puri. He was born of a Hindu Kshatriya family in Sialkot on September 17th, 1931. Soon after passing intermediate examination he came to Bombay, the Mecca of film aspirants, and sought the help of H.S. Kwatra to join the screen. The latter cast him in his Punjabi picture ‘Koday Shah’, in which he showed promise. Daljeet made his first appearance on the Hindi screen in ‘Laila’, made by Shah Pictures.
