Manjot Singh and Chris Gayle recently shot for a mobile ad in Madh island. Talking about the same Singh said, "Chris and I had a great time shooting. He taught me 'what's up' in Jamaican i.e. 'wha guan' and I taught him what's going on brother in Punjabi i.e. 'ki chalda veerey'."

Actor Manjot Singh of "Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!" fame says whenever he expresses his desire to do serious and romantic roles in Bollywood, he is told that a "Sardar will only be accepted in a comic role". The young actor believes only Sikh actors can break this perception.The audience has seen his comic side in films like "Student of the Year" and "Fukrey".

He agrees that he has done many comic roles but "not the ones where I have had to humiliate myself. The kind of roles that I have taken up were more like situational comedy".And he wants to explore more genres. "I wish to do a serious role and a romantic role but whenever I express what's on my mind, I am told that a Sardar will only be accepted in a comic role. People cannot imagine a Sardar wearing a pagdi (turban) romancing an actress," Manjot had earlier said in an interview. He was last widely praised for his role in the 2017 film "Fukrey Returns", which will air on &pictures on May 20. It is his first sequel.
