HAPPY BIRTHDAY MANJOT SINGH: Since his debut in the 2008 comedy movie Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! Manjot Singh has etched his image in the industry as a successful comic actor. Manjot even received Filmfare Critics Award for Best Debut Actor.
Despite him being honoured with a renowned award like Filmfare for his debut work, Manjot only grabbed everyone’s attention in 2013, with his hilarious character of Lali in Fukrey. Manjot’s acting garnered huge praise, and his character was one of the most loved ones in the film. Since then, there is no looking back for Manjot.
So far he has shared screen space with renowned actors like Shah Rukh Khan in Jab Harry Met Sejal, Ayushmann Khurrana in Dream Girl, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra in Student Of The Year, and others. As the actor is celebrating his 30th birthday today, let’s take a sneak peek at his latest and upcoming work.
Manjot was last seen in the drama web series Chutzpah, which premiered on Sony LIV. The series revolves around the issue of privacy in the digital era. In Simranpreet Singh’s directorial, the actor played the character of Rishi.
