- Kanwar Dhillon is an Indian actor who is known for portraying the character named Shiva Pandya in StarPlus’s drama serial ‘Pandya Store’ (2021).
- Kanwar Dhillon was inclined towards acting and drama since childhood. He grew up admiring his father’s performances, which served as an inspiration to him.
- During an interview, he claimed that he struggled for years to find a job before entering the entertainment sector. Before making his internet debut, he went through a number of auditions. His father did not utilise his connections in the industry to create a smother way for him. Talking about it, he said
At 18, I told my dad, ‘Papa, I want to be an actor.’ He said, ‘Okay, go struggle, that’s how we did it. I’ve got you a bike for college, use your bike, go audition.’ So, for a year, non-stop, I used to go from Thakur college to Aaraam Nagar, Andheri everyday after college and stand in the long queue for advertisements’ auditions but they never worked out for me ever till date. “Out of anger, I don’t even go for meetings because I have struggled so much for ads and not even one ad worked out for me. So, I have stopped going for ads meetings. So, yes, I have seen those days and I am glad that my father didn’t make it easy for me, I’ve learnt it the hard way.”
- Kanwar Dhillon made his acting debut in the adolescent comedy drama series ‘The Buddy Project’ on Channel V India in 2012. Kunal was the role he portrayed. His next assignment was the second season of Colors TV’s ‘Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha’ in 2013 as Aditya aka Addu Bhatnagar, in which he starred with Kunal Karan Kapoor, Aakanksha Singh, Jayashree Venketaramanan, Ashnoor Kaur, Vishesh Bansal, and Reem Sheikh as Aditya aka Addu Bhatnagar.

I was supposed to do a web project and a film after Internet Wala love, then I fractured my leg, then COVID and everything happened, and it just kept on getting delayed and the break just got extended, which was unplanned.”
- Kanwar Dhillon made his on screen comeback in 2021, after nearly a year and a half, with Star Plus’s television drama serial ‘Pandya Store.’ He plays the character named Shiva Pandya along side Shiny Doshi as Dhara Pandya, Kinshuk Mahajan as Gautam Pandya, Kruttika Desai Khan as Suman Pandya, Kanwar Dhillon as Shiva Pandya, Akshay Kharodia as Dev Pandya, Simran Budharup as Rishita Pandya, Mohit Parmar as Krish Pandya, and others. Pandey Store is also accessible on Disney Hotstar, and was first aired on Star Plus. Pandey Store is also available on Disney Hotstar and was originally shown on Star Plus. His connection as Shiva Pandya alongside Alice Kaushik, who portrays Raavi, garnered him a lot of fans among the public. It was a successful comeback for the actor. When asked about choosing Pandya Store for his comeback, he narrated,
I followed Pandian Store (the Tamil version of the show) when I signed up for this show because I wanted to be sure about what I am doing is worth it because I was coming after a gap of more than a year and a half. I wanted to do something that brings me back with a bang. Honestly, Pandya Store was a gamble for me. I saw the Tamil version, called up the production and said, ‘I am in for it.’ There was something about the show; there is a reason why it is such a big hit down South that it’s still on air.”
- Kanwar Dhillon, who plays Shiva Pandya, just purchased a superbike. The actor adores riding his bike and has crossed something off his bucket list. He also used Instagram to notify his fans of the good news. He and his family headed to the store to get his first superbike. He went on to remark that he is quite proud of himself for accomplishing his goal. He also travelled with his parents and his girlfriend, Alice Kaushik.
- When asked what inspired him to become an actor, he stated,
My father is my idol. He’s that person, whom I have never seen calling and asking for work from anyone. He is a self made man. He was a farmer in Punjab and shifted to Bombay, he struggled and made it on his own. Whatever work he’s done, he has done it respectfully and never asked for work. ‘Jis insaan ne khudke liye call nahi kiya, main kyun umeed karun ki vo mere liye call kare?”
- Kanwar Dhillon acknowledged his connection with actor Alice Kaushik after she posted images of herself with Kanwar on social media with the words “my beloved” and her “biggest strength.” Sge wrote the caption as,
You walked into my life a year ago, and let’s just say, ever since then, I haven’t looked back. It’s been beautiful, knowing you. Cherishing you. Making memories with you. Because you make it hard not to. After all, haven’t you stuck by my side through my highs but most importantly my lows? Haven’t you been and continue to be my constant support? My greatest strength. Having you in my life is proof enough that God truly does love me. And here’s why. You are easily the most fun person I’ve ever come across. Not a day goes by where I don’t adore the goofy, crazy you. I don’t mind saying that this includes the things that used to annoy me. All things kept aside, I want nothing but the best for you.”
Replying to Alice’s Instagram post, Kanwar wrote,
Thank you meri aallloooo for being the best human to have ever come into my life! I won’t try to because I wont be able to pen down & express about what you mean to me. God has his ways & he always gives the best to the people who deserve the best!! I pray and wish you climb the ladder of life and success even higher with alongside of course..Thank you for everything! Love u @alicekaushikofficial.”
- Actors Kanwar Dhillon and Alice Kaushik spent a beautiful Valentine’s Day together. The lovebirds had a thrilling helicopter ride but no proof of their romance. Previously, when questioned about their relationship status, Alice used to respond as,
Kanwar is my family. I am very happy that he is a part of my life. We share a great working bond on screen and I am glad that I met him. But, my post on social media does not confirm if I am dating Kanwar. I would not like to comment if we are in a relationship. I am just glad that he is a part of my life. I feel the post could be for anyone who you feel is important in life, it does not mean you are in a relationship. I will talk about my relationship when the time is right.”
- The actor is a avid animal lover and has a pet dog at his home.
