‘Filmmakers rejected me because I am a sardar’ Fukrey Actor Manjot Singh’s Biggest Communal Statement

Manjot Singh whom we have seen in films like Student of The Year, Fukrey and Fukrey 2 has made a big statement on a communal basis. He said he lost many film offers sometimes because he is a Sikh and wears a turban. The actor, who debuted in Bollywood with Dibakar Banerjee’s Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, said that he feels sad to be pigeon-holed into funny roles.

In his statement to PTI, Manjot told, “I was rejected because I was a Sardar. It is believed that if one wears a turban, one can’t do serious stuff on screen – be it action or drama. I feel extremely hurt as there is a perception that those who wear turban can only make people laugh.”

Manjot accuses filmmakers of not being creative and cast him to stereotype roles. He said, “Even we do action sequences, fall in love and get hurt, but people feel that they will take a Sardar only when the script demands. I’m trying to break that perception. I feel filmmakers have made this stereotype and only they can break it. But things are better today”.

This year, Manjot had a special appearance in Student of the Year 2 and is awaiting the release of Dream Girl, slated to arrive in theatres on September 13.
