Gurdas Maan was born in the village of Giddarbaha, District of Muktsar. He was formally educated in Malout. After completing his education his parents moved him to Patiala for further studies. The city fascinated him especially because it was home to the National Institute of Sports, as Gurdas is a keen sports enthusiast. He Joined the N.I.S and gained a Masters Degree in Physical Education.

He took part in youth festivals organised by various universities and won numerous awards for his singing and acting. He competed in many athletic events and won medals including a bronze at the National Championship, he is also a black belt in Judo. After completing his Masters Degree, he started working and also kept on writing and doing stage shows.

In one of his stage play he sang a song which he wrote himself and called " DIL DA MAMALA HAI ". The play was seen play a producer of a Jullander TV station, who than approached him for a TV recording of his song, which Gurdas reluctantly agreed to. When the song was aired on the 31st December 1980 it stormed the nation and Gurdas Maan became a household name.
