Punit Malhotra’s fame has risen and fallen like a fickle since his massively successful debut feature movie featuring Imran Khan as well as Sonam Kapoor, “I Hate Luv Stories.” Punit Malhotra has always been the centre of attention since that, and he appears to be determined to remain there.
Punit refined his talents & craft aiding Karan Johar on Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Nikhil Advani on Kal Ho Na Ho, Amol Palekar on Paheli, and Tarun Mansukani on Dostana before managing his debut motion picture.
Punit’s career includes ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein,’ featuring Imran Khan and Kareen Kapoor, as well as his breakthrough feature ‘I Hate Luv Stories.’ He wrote the storey, screenplay, as well as dialogues for all these movies in addition to directing them. Punit has also appeared at the front of the cameras, portraying numerous characters in screenplays including posing for advertisements.
Punit has recently begun creating commercials, but his works for companies like Pantene, Olay, Ariel, Whisper, and Snapdeal, among many others, have enabled him to solidify his place in the industry.
He’s youthful and vivacious, bringing a great deal of energy as well as dynamism towards the set. He is known for making movies for lifestyle and fashion companies. His ability to communicate stories is obvious in the motion pictures he has directed in the past. He feels at ease collaborating alongside our movie industry’s superstars and conversely.
Punit is presently directing commercials while also working on his script for his next project.
Punit Malhotra was born on May 13, 1981, in Mumbai, Maharashtra, but raised in a Punjabi household in the Bandra coastal suburb.
