Probably best-known for his loud-mouthed, brash and locally lovable Phua Chu Kang, Gurmit Singh has long since established himself one of the leading artistes on Singapore TV. His dedicated portrayal of Phua Chu Kang made Gurmit a popular icon not only in Singapore, but also in neighbouring countries as well, and this fact was culminated when he won the award for Best Actor at the Asian Television Awards in 1997.
Gurmit has since moved on to expand himself in hosting Singapore Idol, and being the face of various publicity campaigns for MediaCorp. Widely-regarded as one of the best emcees in Singapore, his services are much in demand. Without a doubt, Gurmit has firmly established himself as a firm part of our Singapore arts and entertainment scene.
