Ranjeet Singh character profile

Ranjeet Singh is a student in Jeremy Brown‘s EFL class. He is played by Albert Moses.

Ranjeet is a Sikh from the Punjab region and works in the London Underground. Due to religious and cultural differences, he and Ali initially hate each other. Although his English vocabulary is quite good, he often mixes up his general knowledge. His catchphrases are “A thousand apologies” and “Most certainly”, and sometimes “Oh blimey”. When angered, he sometimes threatens people with his kirpan.

In “A Fate Worse Than Death” Ranjeet says that he was engaged when he was 12 and that was 20 years ago, so he begins the series at the age of 31, 32 or 33. In the same episode, he wants to commit suicide due to his arranged wife not being anywhere near as beautiful as she was 20 years ago, but in the end, he decides not to do it. He drinks alcohol despite openly admitting that it’s against his religion to do so,[2] and enjoys reading Cartoon Capers.[3]

Ranjeet is one of the four original students who is still part of Mr. Brown’s class in Season 4.
