1. Saurabh Shukla: Actor, Director and Scriptwriter
The iconic Shukla Saab from the industry had actually attended SGTB Khalsa college in his days of youth. I’m sure you guys remember his brilliant roles in Satya, Barfi, PK … to name a few of his splendid films. Personally, we think that he was his best in Mohabbatein as Sanjana’s father, after all – we learned all our lessons on love from their exchanges, right? Right!
He continues to be cherished both nationally and internationally for his luminous acting and presence in Bollywood. This Khalsa grad also won the 2014 National Film Award for his role of supporting actor in Jolly LLB.
2. Rabbi Shergill: Singer and Musician
No words will ever be able to suffice this man’s creative genius. He has produced records of breathtaking music and relishes in the fame that he much deserves. If there’s a love song we all need in our lives, it has got to be Tere Bin. His magical voice corroborated with that melodious music is enough to give anyone an eargasm.
And have you heard the coke studio version of Tere Bin? Well, let’s just say that you’re going to thank us later. And don’t forget, his prodigy we so dearly love went to SGTB Khalsa College!
3. Arvinder Singh Lovely: Minister of Education and Transportation, Delhi government
The popular member of the Congress who resigned the party to shake hands with Bhartiya Janta Party recently had attended SGTB Khalsa College in his bachelor’s days to study Political Science. He also went on to become the Student Union’s president then, giving a kickstart to his political career.
Once he was elected in 1998 for the first time into the Delhi Legislative Assembly, he made a mark for himself as the youngest of the lot! Lovely indeed, no? Way to go, mister Arvinder.
4. Maninder Singh: Former Cricketer turned Commentator
This former international cricket player was born in Pune and went to Delhi to study at SGTB Khalsa college for his bachelor’s. He has made a name for himself in cricket by representing India in 35 Test matches and 59 One Day Internationals. Maninder Paaji happens to be well-known for another thing: he holds a ‘Test record for the most tests in a complete career without aggregating 100 runs.’ and he now enjoys the fame of a commentator, much like all the big shots in the field!
The unbeatable Indian archer from Rajasthan who has represented our nation not once, but TWICE in the Olympics happened to go to SGTB Khalsa college for his graduation! After representing India at 1988 Summer Olympics, the Government of India honoured him in the following year with an Arjuna award. And guys, that’s a pretty big deal! So don’t let some silly envious boy next door tell you that you can’t dream big; here we have mister Shyam living that dream twice!
6. Mohinder Amarnath: Former Cricketer
Lala Amarnath’s son, the man who was the first captain of the Indian team post our independence, Surinder Amarnath (former test player) and Rajinder Amarnath’s (current coach and former first-class player) brother – Mohinder Amarnath ( AKA Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy), currently a cricket analyst an formerly a cricketer himself, when to SGTB Khalsa college as well for his bachelor’s degree.
