Glamour Stars (Films, Stage, Fashion and Modeling)

They live and work in Glamour, but do not forget their religious identity and Guru's advice 'Mat Dekh Bhoola Visrai tera Chit Na Aave Nao' .

Apart from our role-models in fi lmmaking, we have now a number of Sikhs who like other youngsters are attracted towards the glamour world of stage, television, fi lms and modeling. Many such Sikhs have abandoned their Sikh identity with an object of getting more work and earning more money. However there are some Sikhs who have kept their Sikh identity and with Guru's given turban on their heads have done their work in this glamour world with dignity, without caring for the work and money aspect. Th ey consider that whatever God has given is suffi cient to meet all their needs. Such persons do not forget their origin, Guru's teachings and their honour while undertaking any task. Th ey know that a turban on their head is an honour and if it goes, it will not be the living of a Sikh. Th ey believe in Gurbani 'Je Jive Pat Lathi Jaye, Sab Haram Jeta Kich Khaye' and live their life with the Gurmat principles of contentment and God's will. A number of such persons engaged in diff erent sectors of the glamour world like production, direction, acting, writing of script and lyrics have been identifi ed by us from this glamour world as our role-models. Th e problem of Sikh identity mainly comes in the acting fi eld as our fi lm Producers and Directors are not giving Sikh roles to Sikhs. Th ey want to give the roles to established actors by making them Sikhs with artifi cial beards and turbans. Th at is why the Sikhs are not getting the main roles. However, the Sanstha has emphasized many a time that the Sikh role must be given to Sikh actors. Many Sikh actors like Manpreet Singh Banga are there who can play the role of Hero in any fi lm. So far other roles are concerned, the Sikh have played character roles and comedians. Earlier the Sikhs were not shown in good spirit and were generally presented as to make fun of them. But, the scene has changed now and it has been understood that a comedian is not a fool or a block head. He is quite sharp and gives comments with wit, satire and intelligence. He makes other laugh and not is merely meant to be laughed at S. Jaspal Singh Bhatti was a king of comedy. He gave many comic performances, acted in many Punjabi and Hindi movies and was recognized for his humorous programme full of satire on topical issues on various T.V. channels. S. Navjot Singh Sidhu is another Sikh face generally seen in comedy programmes on small screen. Th ere are other Sikhs also like Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi who are playing the role of comedians in various fi lms. Th us, our role-models include some Sikh comedy stars. Th ose who are music Directors or singers fi nd a place among the role-models in our category of music and dance. A few words must be said about fashion modeling, which has recently taken the society by storm. Th e youth is highly attracted towards fashion modeling as it brings a lot of money, popularity and glamour in one's life. Some 20 years back, our clergy and others narrow minded people used to think that Sikhs were not meant for fashion parade. However, the intellectual Sikhs held the view that Sikhs could do anything if it was not illegal, immoral or contrary to the teachings of the Gurus. Fashion modeling was mainly a presentation of one's overall personality which covered his way of walking, talking, dress sense and intelligence. When one gentleman S. G.S. Gill wanted to do modeling, the modeling agency told him that for being a good model, he was required to shave of his hair. However, the devout Sikh was courageous enough to say that he will not do so and added he will himself make Sikh models in good number. He started his own modeling agency under the name and style of 'Launchers' in Delhi. Further, S. Jaspal Singh Saigal of Mumbai had proved that a model could participate in Sikh form in any fashion competition. He competed in Grasim 'Mr. India' competition in 2002 and became the fi rst runners up in that competition. Kes Sambhal Parchar Sansta had taken an initiative when they started in 1998 a programme called 'SAGA' (Spiritual And General Ability) contest wherein the participants were required to possess all the qualities of a good model and also a good knowledge of Sikh religion, its maryada, values and traditions. 'He Khalsa' and 'She Khalsa' were selected on the basis of overall evaluation through this programme which remained an annual feature for 15 years. Following this programme, many other organizations in Chandigarh, Mumbai and the other parts of the country started similar programmes. Th e most important of these programme was that of 'Singh International' organized by an Amritsar based organization 'Akalpurakh Ki Fauj'. All these programmes inspired confi dence among our Sikh boys and they started realizing the importance of Sikh identity, particularly crown like turban on their heads which gave them an edge over others in projecting the overall personality. Today, there are many Sikh fashion models working in diff erent parts of the world. Th us, the encouragement given by various organizations and the bold initiative taken by S. G.S. Gill, Jaspal Singh Saigal, S. Gurpreet Singh Ahluwalia, and S. Balwinder Singh Suri in this regard has given good results and a number of Sikh models are now winning the heart of the people. We have selected some role-models from this organ of the glamorous world also.
