‘Bir Khalsa’ group from Punjab impressed the judges of America's Got Talent with their daredevil act. They have already cleared the second round. The group consists of two members, Kawaljit Singh & Jagdeep Singh. Jagdeep Singh is the tallest policeman in the world with height 7 feet 6 inches. The group also holds four Guinness world records for the most number of coconuts smashed while being blindfolded. The group has also won India's Got Talent- Season 2 which was aired on Colors.

The duo talk about their experience in America’s Got Talent and how it has changed their life completely.

Since we have come to ‘America’s Got Talent’ we are getting calls from all over the world. We are getting called to Japan, Turkey, Italy, England to perform. This was the biggest platform for us. Our life has changed after coming here.
Kawaljit Singh, Artist

But the success didn’t come easy, he talks about the biggest challenge that they faced and how they almost lost this golden chance to be in America’s Got Talent.

“We had a manager called Karamjeet Singh. He cheated us so badly. He was with us for four to five years. When we went to Germany, he took money from there in our names by making fake bills. We went to Italy, even there also he cheated us. So, that manager was a fraud. Here also he took 6,000 dollars from these Americans . We thought we might have to leave this show because of him. When we had fired him and were not getting anyone else, we were very tensed. This was the most challenging thing for us.”
