Jiten Lalwani shot to fame with the character portrayal of Kiran Virani in the famous Balaji soap 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi
'. He was shown as the grandson of Baa and son of Mansuk Virani and Savita Virani. He was married to Aarti and had a daughter by the name of Karishma. But soon after the death of his wife he is shown shattered and single-handedly brings up Karishma who later falls in love with a filmmaker named Shantanu and gets married to him. However his character in this serial was then sent to Australia and since then he hasn't got a call for their shoot.
At present he is focusing on his role in another hit soap 'Baa Bahu Aur Baby'. In this soap he has made an entry as a very good friend Baby called Moloy Tijariwala. Those who have not seen enough of this actor can see his powerful performance in the Sindhi movie 'Pyaar Kare Dis' and another one called 'Sindhi Rocks'. He has also done another English movie called 'The Curse of King Tut's Tomb' where he essayed the character of Dr. Syadech.
His sincerity and dedication reflects in the roles that he portrays. There was one point of time when Jiten Lalwani was doing six shows at a time including the big names like 'Kyunki' on Star Plus
channel, 'Kise Apna Kehen' on Sahara Manoranjan, 'Phit Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani' and 'Rishton KI Dor' on DD, 'Jhooth Boley Kauwa Kate' on Zee
Television channel and 'Ssshhh....Koi Hai' on Star Plus.
The last one was taken up by him as a fresh start because he grew bored of doing regular roles on television and wanted to do something, which will be a mixture of both comic and action. His much talked about role in this soap made him very popular among the kids. But the dailies and weeklies were not his only calling. He was also known for proving his mettle in different plays like 'Dil Ka Haal Sune Dilwala', 'Bluff Master', 'Bhoot', 'Yatri', 'Bigdi Haalat' and 'Baat Baat Mein'. He claims that theater is a cradle for good actors and that is the reason he loves to act in plays. He thinks that the plays give him large scope to perform.
About nurturing his Bollywood
dreams he remarks that there are a plenty of offers coming his way but he would chose to act only if he gets a meaty role in art films. As long this actor is getting enough of quality work to do he does not need to bother about his return in the Balaji soap. He claims God has given him enough reasons to be more than happy. His fans expect to see a lot more of him in the coming years and hopes that he will keep on entertaining them with his meaningful roles and well-sketched characters in the same way.
