Even though India has had a number of Sardars rule the ramp in the past (eg: Bikram Singh Saluja, Kawaljeet Singh Anand, Inder Mohan Sudan), all of them sported short hair and never wore a turban.
So it comes as a surprise that Tejeshwar Singh wears his pagdi with pride, on the ramp and off it as well.
At almost six-feet tall, Tejeshwar is a strapping lad who has walked the ramp for top designers and designer labels like Arjun Khanna, JJ Valaya, Archana Kochhar, Riyaz Gangji, Ramesh Dembla, Manoviraj Khosla, Monte Carlo, Flying Machine, Da Milano and Blackberrys.
Tejeshwar is no stranger to television and Bollywood either. He has been a contestant on Superdude season 2 and Gumraah on Channel V. He has also acted in the cult Bollywood film Fukrey and will again be seen on screen in Desi Magic by Ameesha Patel.
He hopes to be a lead in a Bollywood soon and since he’s quite the good looker, we’re pretty sure someone will write a script with a leading Sikh character.
