Dilshan Mann is the son of the renowned Punjabi comedian-turned-politician Bhagwant Mann, who became the 17th Chief Minister of Punjab.
Dilshan Mann was born on Tuesday, 21 December 2004 (age 17 years; as of 2021). His zodiac sign is Sagittarius.
After spending his early childhood in Chandigarh, India, he moved to Auburn, Washington, with his mother and sister after the divorce of his parents.
In March 2015, Dilshan’s parents filed an application for divorce in a SAS Nagar court. The application was filed under Section 13-B of the Hindu Marriage Act, the decree of divorce by mutual consent. Reportedly, Inderpreet wasn’t in favour of Bhagwant Mann pursuing a career in politics. Consequently, Bhagwant Mann and Inderpreet Kaur started living separately. After the separation, Dilshan and Seerat moved to Auburn, Washington, with their mother, meanwhile Bhagwant Mann juggled his time between Delhi and Mohali in India. Later, Bhagwant Mann publicly claimed that he chose Punjab over his family. Known for using poetry in his political campaigns, Mann posted a poem on his Facebook Account to express his sentiments about his divorce, which read,
Jo latkeya si chiran ton o hal ho geya,
Court ch eh faisla kal ho geya,
Ek passay parivar, dujje passay si parivar,
Main tan yarro Punjab de wal ho geya.”
(A long-pending issue has been resolved. The court decided yesterday. I had to choose between one family and the other. I decided to go with Punjab)
Many believed that Bhagwant Mann was trying to get political mileage out of his divorce case.
