It's Baisakhi today, the harvest festival and it has us appreciating all things Punjabi, including the people. The festival of harvest is a joyous time and we're wishing our readers a Happy Baisaakhi. We brought you news of Baisakhi celebrations from some of your favourite celebrities and now, we turn towards on-screen portrayals of punjabis. This time around, we thought we'd give you a compilation of actors who have either played punjabis in reel life or have the perfect qualities to play one. 

Scroll on for our definitive list of 5 non-punjabi actors who make great puinjabis on screen-

When you think of punjabi men, you think them to be tall and  brawny. We've seen a fair share of strong and handsome Punjabis on screen and we think Namil Paul is a good yardstick for the quality. The actor who is currently in Ek Deewana has infact played the role of a Punjabi guy before on Ek Duje Ke Vaaste.

Another atrribute we associate Punjabis with is great food. Punjabis are all about wholesome north Indian food and nobody loves a good foodie more than us. Nakuul Mehta plays Shivaay Singh Oberoi, a punjabi on screen and apart from his reel life, he happens to be a foodie. The man has an instagram full of drool worthy food. 

Punjabis are passionate people and some of this passion is translated on screen by Karan Patel as he plays Raman Bhalla on Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. The character even goes on to show aggression on screen when it comes to matters he truly cares about. Adding to that, Raman Bhalla is a Punjabi and he totally fits the bill.

If you've ever  made the  acquaintance  of a Punjabi, you would know that they exude energy. And, we couldn't think of anyone better than Rithvik Dhanjani to associate good energy with. The actor is amazing on and off screen and has a way of always being high on energy. Although it has little or nothing to do with Punjabi culture, Rithvik played Jay Khurana on Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani

Dancing is something punjabis are famous for. Bhangra and upbeat music is a large part of their culture and celebrations. Ashish Sharma happens to be an amazing dancer. Before the actor was on Prithvi Vallabh, he was showing off his dance skills as he went on to win Jhalak Dikhla Jaa Season 7. We totally see why he'd make a great punjabi on screen. 

India Forums wishes all the readers out there a very Happy Baisakhi! How are you celebrating?
