He had a legacy to follow, with his father and uncle, Kanwarjit Paintal and Gufi Paintal respectively, being great actors and popular names on the big as well as small screen, Hiten Paintal had a tough task at hands in proving himself. After doing a course in computer graphics and animation, Hiten wanted to shift to US for higher studies. But destiny had some other plans in store for him. With a few months in his hands before proceeding to US, Hiten joined acting classes just to pass some time. But before he knew it, he had made a foray into the field of acting which went on to become his calling card in the time to come.
Having worked in popular small screen shows like “Kasauti Zindagi Ki” and “Yeh Hai Mere Apne”, Hiten now wants to concentrate on the big screen. He already has movies like, “Bachna Ae Haseeno” and “Rascals” to his credit. Currently he is working on a Punjabi movie, “Love You Soniye” starring actors Karanvir Bohra and Teejay Sidhu in the leads. Hiten also has some interesting projects lined up for near future.
Hiten wants to achieve the same kind of success associated with his father, Paintal, who has performed some great roles in movies like “Satte Pe Satta” and “Rafoo Chakkar”. But this he wants to do on his own steam without any recommendations from his father.
