His dedication to his craft makes him so immersed in his characters that he becomes indistinguishable from the characters he portrays on screen.


His next an Espionage Thriller, the Netflix Original Series CAT. In which Randeep plays a police mole who worked during the insurgency of the 80s and returns to espionage to save his brother and inflitrate a narcotics ring in Punjab 2006.

In his recent interviews during promotions Randeep has been exclaiming that finally the audience will see him in a role of a Sikh.


As the wait from the shelving of Battle of Saragarhi has streched to year.


When being asked on him giving so much time for the preparation of ‘Battle of Saragarhi,’ but the project was shelved and simeltanously Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Kesari’ was made on the same subject.


Randeep shared his gratitude for that film to have brought him to understand Sikhs and Sikhism up closely, Randeep has since volunteered with the Sikhs on various causes. In a recent interview Randeep was asked on the current history of Punjab Insurgency and the usage of Armed force on the Golden Temple, Randeep Said.


“It was a very unfortunate time. Whatever happend with Harminder Sahib(Golden Temple) was very unfortunate that shouldn’t have happened . Whenever i visit the place it gives me chills to even imagine what must have gone through.”


On his bent towards Sikhism, He added,


“I put in a lot of efforts, I left smoking and when things didn’t turn out they way we expected i felt hurt and bare. Even after bearing the losses I waited for three years for the movie only because i had taken a pledge at the Guru Granth sahib after visiting the memorial . As I had to move ahead in life I visited the gurudwara to pray , where all I could do is apologise as I had to do my Karma and my karm is being an actor so i had to continue to do it. I apologised to the Granth Sahib for not being able to live up to the promise of not cutting my hair till the movie reaches its conclusion. But If I had gotten stuck, there would have been no Gurnam. This sense of entitlement to give back to the people who wronged you in the same way, is a wrong thought; a negative way of living life”.


The Extraction Star is Currently busy in promotions of his upcoming series CAT , speaking on the same he shared,


“I am very happy that the people of punjab will be able see me in a sikh character. A sikh is being called as a sikh because in literature a sikh is a learner and that’s what I am, a learner in life and that’s why I am a Sikh.”


The promos and songs of CAT have captured people’s imagination. Fans definitely can’t wait to see back in action.
