Priyanshu Chatterjee has had a successful stint as a model and later he ventured into films. The 2001 flick Tum Bin catapulted him to fame but he didn’t sustain, mainly due to his own limitations. Some of his other ventures include Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai, Pinjar,
Dil Ka Rishta, Julie, Koi Mere Dil Mein Hai, Bhoothnath,
Chintu Ji, Iti Mrinalini, Shunyo Awnko, Paanch Adhyay etc.
Currently though Priyanshu is not seen in big screen, he is still remembered for his good looks, attractive personality and a great voice. However, somehow his films didn’t do wonders (except Tum Bin which was a sleeper hit) in Bollywood. Born on February 20, 1973 Priyanshu was wedded to TV anchor
Malini Sharma (she also acted in the movie Raaz) but they parted ways in 2001.
After completing graduation, Priyanshu was into modeling before entering film industry. He was pursuing an internship in CA and eventually got into modeling. Some of his modeling ventures include Levi’s, Wills Cigarettes, Four Square and Digjam Print Campaign. He also worked in a music video of ace singer
. The good looks of Priyanshu showed him the path to Bollywood too. Priyanshu imbibed acting skills from
Kishore Namit Kapoor
School of Acting before venturing into Bollywood.
The 2001 flick Tum Bin is the debut venture of Priyanshu in Bollywood. Since it was quite a hit (the music was a great hit) the director of the flick,
joined hands with Priyanshu once again in the flick Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai but this film bombed at the box office. This duo later didn’t work together again. Pinjar is a film in Priyanshu’s career, which gained him the much-needed recognition after facing some flops.
Priyanshu was very selective with his films since he didn’t want to be typecast with the hero image. He also has his own limitations and hence is not seen in Bollywood films of late. Priyanshu has also worked in some Bengali films.
