Kanwaljit on Saat Samundar Paar !!

Kanwaljit was real fun to talk too...a real good sense of humour...He spent his growing years in Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh,India...So  we'ed thought that he must have really convinced his parents to join the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune...to eventually become an actor...and asked him the same..but somebody rightly says,"do not assume"...so here too I was wrong...The story turned out to be really different...and an interesting one...

So we talk about this,and then Kanwaljit ji's movies and the number of TV serials he has contributed towards..starting from Buniyaad...the unforgettable ....and for me  it was the TV serial Saans.... And what was your fav. TV serial which featured Kanwaljit ji..do write in to us...
