Deep Sidhu is an Indian actor and activist who works in Hindi and Punjabi language films. Deep has started his film career with a Punjabi film Ramta Jogi which is produced by critically acclaimed actor Dharmendra under his banner Vijayta Films.
Sidhu was born in 1984 to a Punjabi family in Muktsar, Punjab.
Sidhu became the winner of Kingfisher Model Hunt and then he took part in Grasim Mr. India and became Grasim Mr. Personality and Grasim Mr. Talented. Sidhu has walked ramp in Bombay for designers like Hemant Trivedi, Rohit Gandhi and others. Somehow he could not connect with Modelling World so he started practising as a lawyer since he has studied law. His first placement was with Sahara India Pariwar as legal advisor. Then he worked with British law firm called Hammonds. They managed Disney, Sony Pictures and other Hollywood Studios. Then he became legal head of Balaji Telefilms for three and half years. That's where Ekta Kapoor told him to act but he didn't start.
Sidhu entered in politics during 2019 Indian general election and campaigned for Gurdaspur BJP MP Sunny Deol. He is said to be close to Deol and during farmers protest, farmer unions used Sidhu's pictures with Prime minister Narendra Modi and Sunny Deol to show the link of BJP and RSS in protests—a claim which was later denied by Sidhu.
On 17 January 2021, NIA asked Sidhu to appear in its headquarters in connection with a case related to Sikhs for Justice.
On 26th January 2021, he led a mob to dismantle peaceful farmer protest and led the youngsters to Red Fort to host flag which resulted in embarrassment of farmers movement. After instigating he fled the scene
