Wrestler Dalip Singh Rana, popularly known as ‘The Great Khali’, on Sunday extended unconditional support to Aam Aadmi Party candidate Sajjan Singh Cheema in Punjab where elections are due next year. Cheema is AAP’s candidate from Sultanpur Lodhi.
Best known for his time with WWE, Rana became the World Heavyweight Champion in 2007. Before becoming professional wrestler, he was an officer for the Punjab state police.
He was also a contestant of reality show Bigg Boss. He also appeared in four Hollywood films and two Bollywood films.
AAP has emerged as an alternative in Punjab where Akali Dal and Congress have ruled for many years.
Former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu, who recently quit as BJP’s Rajya sabha MP, will also formally join the Aam Aadmi party on August 15.
