Ever since his TV debut on The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, Navjot Singh Sidhu has made his mark in the industry, climbing 16 spots in the rankings this year. With the gift of the gab, this former cricketer-turned-politician and TV star has become a permanent feature on The Kapil Sharma Show, a comedy show hosted by Kapil Sharma. He created ripples in political circles as well when he quit from his Rajya Sabha membership and then from the BJP. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Sidhu were in talks about a possible tie-up in Punjab, but talks are said to have come to nought over the lack of consensus about the chief ministerial candidate for the 2017 polls in the state.
Fast Fact: Sidhu recently launched a forum called the Awaaz-e-Punjab for the betterment of Punjab.
