eLanka | Sri Lankan born Actor Ranjeet Singh


 Needs no other introduction except to say that he was born in Sri Lanka and made his mark as an actor in Britain. 

Ranjeet Singh achieved something that few other Asian Actors even residing in England, would have attempted, leave alone achieved. A man of many parts, he will always be remembered as someone who was a natural born Comedian who made millions of people laugh out loud, and this is his story.
