In 2013, the film ‘Fukrey’ by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sadhwani’s Excel Entertainment was a massive success at the box office. Even today, people fondly remember Richa Chadha’s innocent Punjabi character from the movie. The film’s comedy had the audience in stitches. Alongside Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, and Richa Chadha, actor Manjot Singh played a crucial role in the film as Lali, a character that became quite popular. However, despite being part of a blockbuster film, Manjot Singh struggled to find work for two years.
Manjot Singh started his acting career in 2008 with the film ‘Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!,’ where he portrayed the childhood character of Bobby Deol. Despite the film’s success, there was a time when he didn’t receive any work for two years and faced significant challenges.
Manjot Singh, who shot to fame overnight with ‘Fukrey’ in 2013, is currently seen in the film ‘Dream Girl 2,’ where he plays the role of Ayushmann Khurrana’s friend. With his comedic style, Manjot has established a strong presence in several films since 2013. He is also winning hearts in ‘Dream Girl 2,’ where he competes with Ayushmann in the comedy department.
Despite experiencing a blockbuster with ‘Fukrey,’ Manjot Singh faced a period of struggle. He mentioned in an interview that there was a time when his father kicked him out of the house for returning home late. Manjot attempted to sleep in his car but couldn’t, so he went to the hospital near his society. Inside the hospital, he found cold air from an air conditioner, and he decided to sleep there. The next morning, a nurse woke him up, and he returned home. There were instances when he had to spend the night at the hospital.
Manjot Singh revealed that even after the success of ‘Fukrey’ in 2013, he couldn’t find a good role for almost two years. He mentioned that waiting for the right opportunity was challenging, and he faced numerous rejections. Despite the struggles, he persevered to reach the point he’s at in his career today.
