Kanwaljit Singh is an Indian actor who has performed in films as well as television serials. He has acted in Hindi as well as Punjabi films.
Kanwaljit hails from a Sikh family of Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh. After graduation, he joined the Films and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune. His first film was Dastaan-e-Laila Majnu followed by Hum Rahe Na Hum by Vijay Anand, Shart and Shaque by Ketan Anand.
Two of his films, Hum Rahe Na Hum and Shaque, which he heavily banked on, did not do well at the box office. He was slotted as a failure, and it was around this time that he was introduced to television (the small screen, then was not a popular medium).
His role as an illegitimate child, Satbir in Ramesh Sippy’s mega serial Buniyaad gave him instant recognition. This earned him many offers, but even at that time he did not take up anything that came his way. On the contrary he has always preferred to wait and do lesser but more meaningful roles. In the coming years he was approached with roles of his choice and thus serials like Saans, Family no. 1, Dard and Siski happened.
He also starred in a number of punjabi movies such as Mannat, Jee aayean nu and Dil apna punjabi to name a few.
Married to actress Anuradha Patel, they have two sons, Siddharth and Aditya and a god daughter, Mariam, residing in the United States.
