    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?

    Who can forget Kabir Bedi as Gobinda, the villian's aide in the 1983 Bond movie Octopussy, although, as you know, Bond movies are nothing without exaggeration.:grinningsingh:
    In fact, Kabir Bedi is the only Bollywood actor to have acted in a Bond movie so far.

    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.
