Gippy Grewal Biography: DESI ROCK STAR OF PUNJABI MUSIC & FILM INDUSTRY
Gippy Grewal is well-known artist all around the globe for his movies and songs. His real name is Rupinder Singh Grewal but is commonly known as Gippy Grewal. He started his career in 2002 but there are very few people who know about his family background, study and starting of his career in the field. He has a great struggle story behind his success. There have been times in his life when he has done job in Delhi as a waiter in a hotel.
Gippy Grewal was born in Koom Kalan village near Ludhiana, Punjab in a Sikh Family. He was just in 9th standard when his father was going through very bad phase of life because of some health issues. His father was paralysed and was admitted in hospital for a long time.
In 9th standard he has seen critical situation at his home for a long time which has never let him to enjoy the life like others did. Gippy Grewal’s elder brother Sippy Grewal is settled in Australia for now but during those times he was also not that mature to handle the things like a mature person does.
His mother has done a lot for both of the brothers, after getting discharged from the hospital, Gippy Grewal father was not too well for doing all the tasks like before and after around 8 years he passed away. Today also the thing that Gippy Grewal lacks in his life is the presence; of his father during this much success in his life.
In many interviews Gippy Grewal tells that his father wanted to see him as a Singer and he was alive when his very first album Chakk Lain ge ft. Jagdev Maan was released in 2002, his father passed away in 2003.
During the time of Hotel Management, Gippy Grewal used to take part in many cultural activities like plays, singing etc as he was madly in love with the art and the artist inside him. He has listened to the artists like Kuldeep Manak and Gurdas Maan while growing up that is why he admires them both.
When he started his work in Hotel Management and had to do works like room cleaner, chef, waiter etc, he thought that to be successful here in this line, he will be too old to have such kind of success. Then he started learning from Tarseem Walia and Atul Sharma, who is also the music director of his very first album and some of the next albums as well.
Gippy Grewal has worked in Canada also, as a security guard during his struggle days, while he was in college he fell in love with a girl. Later on with god’s grace he married to her and Gippy Grewal wife is Ravneet Kaur Grewal. He has two children named as Ekomkar Singh Grewal and younger one is named as Gurfateh Singh Grewal. Gippy Grewal’s production house is also named on his younger son, Gurfateh Singh Grewal’s name.
Coming into the industry is a new experience for every fresher; the same was with Gippy Grewal. He often says that in the influence of industry, he used to do many kinds of experiment with the songs that he has sung. That is the reason that we have a lot of verity in his songs, sad, happy, beat and many more but all these things also included the songs with the name of many weapons, promoting these types of things through his music.
He said in an interview that when he was a fresher, it was just out of joy that he sung such things as well but later on as we grow in the industry we become an icon more over a role model as well for many youngsters. That is why he has decided to now be very choosy for the topics he will be singing and working on.
He has also been a director of a very famous movie “Ardaas” which is full of life, family drama and brings up the issues that reflect different colours of one’s life.
Gippy Grewal is also the writer of Ardaas which shows his clean and pure thoughts for the common man living along with struggle in his life. His many movies like Jatt James Bond, Fraar, Kaptaan, Carry on Jatta etc have came up with very unique tastes and mix of many different stories that have made us laugh, filled up with excitement, thriller, suspense all over human emotions.
Gippy Grewal has a very clear image about having happiness in one’s life, he says that all this success, struggle, victory and defeating is the part of life. The formula for living happily is just that believe in god, don’t be too happy during the best days of life nor be too sad during the worst times. Both the things are common in life of a celebrity and common man. Just like the thing is in the industry there are many songs by them that become hit along with this there is a list that holds name of songs, movie that did not do well.
So the struggle never ends for one at any place, the thing is to just spend a quality time with the family and kids at home.

Not only this but for Mirza, Singh Vs Kaur, Jatt James Bond and Carry on Jatta as well, he has got the same ward of best actor from PTC Punjabi Film Awards.
