Dilruk Jayasinha Victorious Lion

The literal translation of ‘Jayasinha’ is ‘Victorious Lion’. It’s a name befitting of a king. It’s a name with swagger. But is it suitable for Dilruk?

Dil’s had a victorious few years. He’s performed sell-out shows around the country and the world and filmed a stand-up special for Amazon Prime. He’s been on TV shows like Have You Been Paying Attention? and Utopia. But he still doesn’t feel like the triumphant king of the animal kingdom his name suggests.

It’s time for Dilruk to work out if he is a Victorious Lion by nature or by name only.
