Sukhi said –
From a young age I have always been inspired by the freedom fighters of India’s independence movement, from Bhagat Singh to Lala Raaj Pat Rai G. Throughout my childhood I have heard many stories of the revolution and India’s struggle for freedom and I remember looking at a poster in our house of a strange man with big muscles, with his mustache pointing up. I was eventually to learn that this man was Bhagat Singh. His name is still alive in the hearts of Indians across the world today and should be for many generations ahead. In seven years of his revolutionary life Bhagat Singh changed the face of freedom fighting. So many years later here we are talking about him. Many songs have been done about Bhagat Singh and many will be done in the future and that’s great, because the legend lives on.
As well as a singer/songwriter, Sukhi has played a pivotal role in the British Asian Music and Entertainment Industry as a TV and Radio presenter at British Broadcasting Corporation BBC, Brit Asia TV, Sikh Channel, Radio XL, Channel Punjab to name but a few, interviewing many top celebrities and artistes from around the world as well as compering at live sell out concerts and festivals.
