The Great Khali is also a Hollywood movie star–he’s in the new movie Get Smart and also starred in 2005’s The Longest Yard alongside Adam Sandler and Chris Rock. BBC has also reported that Singh is back in India shooting a documentary on his life. The Great Khali was spotted at the age of 15 by a senior Punjab police official and joined the police force as a constable.
