The Great Khali’s personal life
WWE Hall of Famer The Great Khali is known to be an extremely religious and a family-loving guy. He was born as Dalip Singh Rana to Jwala Ram and Tandi Devi. He was one of the seven siblings and had been doing odd jobs since childhood to make their ends meet.
Khali suffered from acromegaly, which led to gigantism and his chin protrusion. But his enormous built made him popular and he became the first-ever Indian wrestler to be signed by global wrestling giant, WWE.
He came up with the name The Great Khali, inspired from the Hindu goddess Kali, who is often associated with eternal energy. After his WWE run, he appeared in several Hollywood and Bollywood movies. But his current focus remains on his wrestling school, where he nurtures the younger generation.
