People, especially Sikhs and their achievements worldwide never cease to amaze us. Adding another name to the list is Sukhman Gill (no not the cricketer!). The person we are talking about became the first turbaned person to feature in the Canadian grooming company, Harry Rosen!
To tell you more about him, Gill is a Toronto-based architect, model and actor. Even though he had an interest in speaking in front of people and was fond of the stage, Gill studied architecture. Since childhood, Gill wanted to stand out from the crowd and be an inspiration to people. At one point, he even wanted to be an NBA player since there was no Sikh man in any of the teams at the time.

However, he began modeling with Instagram, as Gill shared, he saw that there were not many Sikh faces on this platform and jumped to grab this opportunity. Moreover, he was always active in the theatrical world and not long after he even began writing to make himself better-rounded.
In just an impressive 1.5 years, Gill managed to take part in some huge commercials and campaigns some of which include Under Armour, Holiday Inn, Doritos, Hershey's and can also be seen in short films, music videos and small roles in both movies and TV shows.

In the post he shared, Gill exuded pride for becoming the first Turban-wearing model for the Canadian company Harry Rosen. In the caption, Gill mentioned, “So when I do step out I have a responsibility to portray my people in the best light possible because I don’t just represent me but an army of people that look like me.”
The company being repeatedly mentioned, Harry Rosen is a privately owned Canadian retail chain of 17 luxury men's clothing stores. It is a store that caters to men’s fashion and grooming. Also Read: 15 Years Of Babbu Maan’s ‘Rabb Ne Banaiyan Jodiean’, Do You Know These Details About The Film?
