Gurinder Was Raised By Panjabi-Indian Parents

Gurinder Chadha was born in a Panjabi Sikh family. She later moved to a British colony when she was a child.

Her father and mother were born and raised in Kenya. Later, they relocated to the UK after the political turbulence led to independence prompted.

Her family had united citizenship under the British National Act of 1984, which granted them full rights of entry and settlements in Britain.

She attended Clifton Primary School. Chadha's father faced prejudice because of his appearance as a Sikh Indian. He used to wear a turban and beard.

Gurinder's father had worked as a clerical officer at Barclays Bank in Kenya and could not secure the position due to his appearance.

Eventually, they opened a shop to give the family an economic toehold. She later graduated from the Univeristy of East Anglia with a degree in politics and economics.

Many of her future movies would draw on her experience of being Indian and English simultaneously and how she dealt with the duality of her identity.

Upon completion of her documentary, I'm British, but... Chadha insisted the premiere be held at the Southall Community Center to honor her home community.
