In July 2021, he featured alongside Shivin Narang and Mahima Makwana in the music video for the song ‘Bas Ek Tera Main Hoke,’ sung by Stebin Ben. 6
He was selected through an e-audition by the team of ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. Subsequently, he was called to Mumbai for a personal audition with Aamir Khan to determine if he was the right fit for the role. After his selection, he underwent several training sessions, participated in acting workshops, and received training in Punjabi and other skills. 5
According to reports, Gippy Grewal’s son, Gurfateh Grewal, also known as Shinda Grewal, was initially the first choice to play the young Aamir Khan in Laal Singh Chaddha (2022). However, things didn’t work out as Gurfateh would have needed to cut his hair for the film, a condition Gippy Grewal was not okay with. 7
He also starred in the short film ‘Yamberzal’ (2022) directed by Raja Sarfaraz. 8
