Dhillon started his career with his debut album Kacheriyan Ch Mele Lagde that had the hit song, Boliyan which got a lot of airplay on the radios. Dhillon made his career with his third, smash hit album Akhara in 2003 that had made waves in India, and still is. The most popular song on the album was Kalli Kite Mil. Though this was not a fast paced tune; the album was redone later for an international release and the song was converted to a hardcore Bhangra, fast-paced song.
Kalli Kite Mil made Dhillon widely popular as he was mistaken at times for Surjit Bindrakhia with the particular tune. He later released Velli in 2005 that had just built upon his success with his previous album. It became an instant hit and had music videos for almost every song. The album was enjoyed by all throughout the world and nothing had to be changed to appeal to the international crowd. Most of the lyrics he sang for the albums were by Balvir Boparai who is famous for his album Hostel. He also release another album, Jatt Driver Fauji which contained some of his new and some popular tracks. His popularity was on the rise before his tragic death.
