The Great KhaliBio

Everyone looks up to The Great Khali – whether you want to or not.

That’s because the 7-foot-1, 347-pound skyscraper of a WWE Superstar can’t help but tower over all of the WWE Universe. Khali stands out from every crowd not only for his overwhelming size, but also for being the first to blaze a trail to WWE from his native India. His formative years might incline The Punjabi Giant toward some good-humored fun like dancing up a storm or courting a lucky lady for the “Kiss Cam,” but Khali frequently calls upon his Rajput heritage to become a proud warrior in the ring.

Khali’s battle-ready mentality and intimidating presence combine to make him a unique threat to every member of the WWE roster. He has successfully stood tall against celebrated WWE Superstars including The Undertaker, Kane, Big Show, John Cena and Jinder Mahal.  And he was the last man standing in a 20-Man Battle Royal on SmackDown in 2007 that allowed Khali to realize his dream of becoming World Heavyweight Champion.

Success in the WWE ring has lead to notoriety away from it for Khali, whose sizable achievements have made him a national hero in India. He frequently appears on screens of all sizes from Bollywood to Hollywood, which includes prominent acting roles in the feature films “The Longest Yard” (2005), “Get Smart” (2008), and “MacGruber” (2010), in addition to guest star appearances on the NBC series “Outsourced” and the Disney Channel series, “Pair of Kings.”

With a massive frame and a huge heart to match, The Great Khali is a gentle goliath beloved by the WWE Universe ... just don’t get on his bad side.
