Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi, the famous Punjabi actor and a standup comedian, who shot to face after being a contestant in The Great Indian Laughter Show, comedy reality show, has been appointed as Aam Aadmi Party’s Punjab convener. This news comes after AAP sacked its former Punjab convener, Sucha Singh Chhotepur on grounds of corruption when he was caught allegedly taking bribe for tickets in the upcoming Punjab assembly elections.
Gurpreet had joined Aam Aadmi Party in February this year. He is the second Punjabi comedian, after Bhagwant Singh Maan to join Aam Aadmi Party. Bhagwant has been pretty active in politics since sometime now and he is currently a sitting MP in the parliament.
Gurpreet had started his career through small roles in serials telecasted on doordarshan and other tv channels. He has been pretty active as well as popular in Punjabi film industry. Talking about his Bollywood break, he has worked in movies like Namastey London and Humko Deewana Kar Gaye and Singh Is King. The interesting thing to notice is that all the 3 bollywood movies in which he acted, had Akshay Kumar in the lead role.
Gurpreet has been given this post in AAP at a crucial time. Specially after AAP’s former Punjab convener was arrested of bribe charges and recently, their biggest hope, Navjot Singh Sidhu launched a new party.
