Singer-actor Jassie Gill dug into the archives and shared a throwback picture from his college days, when he worked as a car-washer in Australia. The picture, which was shared on his Instagram stories, is from 2009-10. Jassie took up a job as a car-washer when he visited his sister in Australia for three months as he needed money to finance his debut album. Reportedly, Gill worked tirelessly and saved every penny so that he could make his dream come true.
Earlier, in an interview Jassie recounted those days and informed that he would get paid $60 per day and went to work even on Sunday. He added, "In those 90-odd days, I missed work just once when heavy rains made it impossible to commute. I slogged from 8 am to 6 pm, reporting to a supervisor at the garage”. Speaking about the difficulties of the job, the singer claimed that he had to bend down all day as part of his job and thus suffered from acute backache and body pain, but for him all that mattered was that he was earning his own money.

In 2011, Jassie released his first album, Batchmate. He made his big screen debut with the Punjabi film Mr & Mrs 420 in 2014. His first Bollywood film - Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi - came four years later, in 2018. Jassie was last seen on the big screen in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Panga, opposite Kangana Ranaut. The film also starred Neena Gupta and Richa Chadha in pivotal roles.
When asked if he would prioritise acting over singing now, Jassie told a news agency earlier this year, “I don’t think that this (acting) will affect my singing career. Acting and singing have been parallel for me because I started acting through my songs (music videos). So, I don’t think that way. It’s become so easy nowadays that you can sit in your room and make music. So, whenever I get time I make music.”
