While once an actor is always an actor, once a businessman is always a businessman too! What happens when the two craft find place in one entity? Well, then you have people like Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, and you also have actor Ranjha Vikram Singh.

A sculpted body, intense gaze, Ranjha Vikram Singh from Mohali becomes the first Punjabi to bag the Best Actor Award for his Kannada film, Rana Vikrama.

Ranjha, who was last seen in Punjabi film, 25 Kille, will be seen in another Punjabi film, Motor Mitran Di, releasing December 30. He is also set to announce his big Bollywood project where he plays a boxer! For the moment, Ranjha sits confident on Motor Mitran Di.

“The film is directed by Amitoj Mann, and it is a satirical take on the dhongi babas of today,” shares Ranjha, who is sure about the subject getting a thumbs-up from the audience!

“The film is not about any particular baba. It is a satire on every dhongi baba as I mentioned before.”

Here is an actor, who doesn’t sing and is still trying to create his niche in this industrty. Now, this is one question he has been asked one time too many. “Actually, I feel grateful to all the Punjabi singer-actors for taking this industry this far, and making it popular. At present, if it has to be taken to another level, then it needs only actors,” he emphasis on the words actor.

Actor sure he is, Ranjha carries a business acumen too. “My father passed away when was I pretty young. I’ve been handling business ever since. My bhabhi and I have a production house called Running Horses Pictures that also co-produced 25 Kille,” adds the actor, who has put his business skills to movie making many a time, “the results have been excellent always,” adds this trained boxer from New Zealand, who was also the lead villain of Bollywood film, Heropanti!

“I will be playing the balancing act now, focusing more on Punjabi films, at the same time, working on Bollywood and films down South too.”
