Ranbir Kapoor apart from making his mother and the grandmother proud for playing the role of a Sikh has also done the community pride, more so on the Indian silver screen, as till date Sardars were not presented in a very positive light. A stereotype notion about a community has broken and it would go a long way in inspiring other actors as well to bring the Sikhs into the mainstream. On the occasion of ROCKET SINGH: SALESMAN OF THE YEAR, it indeed is an opportunity to see how the Sikhs as they have been portrayed on the silver screen have evolved.

Interestingly enough, Sikh as a character have used in the Hindi cinema for female artists as well when they were stepping into the male domain and had to earn out their living. Interestingly enough, when the female actors have played the role of a Sikh character they have been portrayed in a rather sensitive manner.



MERA NAAM JOKER: It was the first film where a female artist, Padmini had played the role of a Sikh to earn out her living and a miasma of sensuality was created by the biggest showman Raj Kapoor.
