City boy Balraj Singh Khehra, Roadie’s winner (2016) and former Mr Punjab runner-up, is now going to step up into new shoes as he will now be seen in a Punjabi web series Lazeez. It’s a murder mystery and Balraj will be playing a ‘cop’ in the series, releasing on April 22.
Sharing about preparation for the role, he said his habit of observing people has always helped him. “I observe a lot and being an actor, this has been a strong point,” he said.
Balraj also shared that mostly comedy movies are being produced in Punjabi cinema. “But this is a completely different genre and people will get to watch a complete new cinema,” he said.
Balraj, who has already worked in Bollywood, has just started his stint in Punjabi cinema and with ‘Lazeez’ , he is confident that chances will be given to new faces too as there is a lot of talent in Punjab.
While growing up in a small village, a dream of becoming an actor was always nurturing in his mind. To achieve them, he took part in Mr Punjab in 2014 and finished second in the competition. Thereafter, he set sail and gave auditions in the Punjabi film industry.
Balraj had then developed a grouse that people from the Punjabi film industry would say that he was not a ‘known face’ so he could not get a chance to appear in the films. Later, he took it as a challenge and headed to accomplish his ultimate dream. Then Roadies happened and he won the show.
Balraj is a trained fitness trainer and has a team called ‘fitness freaks’ that gives training to celebrities and businessmen. He has also played the role of Boota Singh in a show based on Battle of Saragarhi.
