    Navjot Singh Siddhu Biography

    Navjot Singh Siddhu is a former Indian cricketer born in Patiala, in the Indian state of Punjab. Sidhu was elected to the Lok Sabha as a member from Amritsar in 2004 on a Bharatiya Janata Party ticket; he later resigned, following his conviction.

    After the Supreme Court stayed his conviction, he successfully contested the Amritsar Lok Sabha seat, defeating his Congress rival, State Finance Minister Surinder Singla by 77,626 votes.

    Siddhu started his career as a commentator for Nimbus sport when India toured Sri Lanka in 2001. He however, later became a commentator with ESPN Star Sports. As a commentator, Sidhu was noted for his one-liners, which came to be known as "Sidhuisms".

    After he was sacked from ESPN-Star for swearing on air, he worked for Ten Sports. He also regularly appeared as a "cricket analyst" on various Indian news channels and is noted for being possibly the most hated and ridiculed figure in international commentary today.

    He also appeared as a judge on the television programme - "The Great Indian Laughter Challenge." He also appeared in other similar programmes as "Funjabi Chak De." He was also a contestant in the reality show called Bigg Boss.
