Sikh Characters In Famous Movies


Aug 14, 2012
There are some movies which depict Sikhs as a very normal part of the landscape, nothing exaggerated, no need to make any special point or to highlight anything, just a character in the film like any other, except he happens to be a Sikh. I love these kinds of movies, because to me it seems like they come closest to depicting how Sikhs are in real-life, integrated into the society, and responsible, contributing members of the community.

A few come to mind, are there any others?

The English Patient
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
The Darjeeling Limited
Inside Man
The Jury (British mini-series)

Khan Noonien Singh, the villian of Star Wars sci-fi franchise, is also a Sikh. His role was played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the 2013 movie Star Trek Into Darkness.

Khan is depicted as a North Indian from a family of Sikhs. "Khan" is a title; his parents are from Chandigarh, Punjab, India and are both eugenic scientists.
