1. He Began His Career As A Child Actor

His first film as a child actor was Chhotto Jigyasa of Hrishikesh Mukherjee Hrishikesh Mukherjee is a film director, writer an >> Read More... Hrishikesh Mukherjee in 1969. This movie secured him his first award for the Bengal Film Journalists' Association - Most Outstanding Work of the Year Award.


2. A Struggling Actor

Though he is the son of a veteran actor Biswajeet Chatterjee, he never got a chance to use his father's fame to climb the success ladder. His father left him when he was just ten years old. Having enough responsibilities on his shoulders in the prime age of his life, Prosenjit had to work to earn money. At 14, he got a job in the Star Theatre that paid him Rs 500 only. It was his first break which taught him life lessons. Being a student, he did three plays in a week simultaneously. Life was never easy for him despite being born with a golden spoon and as a star kid. Prosenjit had strived and worked hard honestly for the victorious life he is living now, to create his image with all due respect to his father. 

3. Three Decades Into The Film Industry And Still Counting 

Prosenjit Chatterjee is still a new name in the film industry. Indeed, he is not an actor of this generation, yet no new actor can eclipse his glory. Soon his filmography is about to cross the 400 mark, and he has movies lined up for the upcoming years. Prosenjit has marked his excellence in the directing of films as well with his own production house Nideas Creations and Productions Private Limited.


4. Challenge Is Fodder

Challenges inspire him the most. He loves to experiment with his films. In the early years of his acting career, we saw him proliferating in mainstream commercial films, namely, Amor Sanghi, and Anaye Atyachar. Since 2010 he changed his usual track and moved on to films of mature content. Movies like Autograph (2010), Maner Manush (2010), Baishey Shrabon (2011), Jatishwar (2014), Praktan (2016), Mayurakkhi (2017) and many more redefined his acting career. It was the late director Rituporno Ghosh who brought out the hidden potential in him, in his internationally acclaimed film Chokher Bali. After this, he started to explore himself even more by working with the filmmakers of the next generation, namely, Srijit Mukherjee, Kaushik Ghosh, and others. The chocolate boy of the late 90s and early 20s blossomed into an acting phenomenon by the mid-20s. 


5. Dedicated Actor

Prosenjit Chatterjee can go up to any limits to bring any character alive. This was proved by his extraordinary performance in the movie Moner Manush where he portrayed the character of Lalon Fakir, a 19th-century legendary spiritualist, poet and baul. It fetched him the Best Actor Award in 2011. The dual role of Prosenjit in Jatiswar as Antony and his modern reincarnation as a librarian Kushwal Hajra also showed how dedicated he can be towards his profession.


6. A Humble Man 

Bumba da is a man of the audience. Not receiving laurels does not bother him much. He believes in the praise and applause of the audience more than accolades. He is a generous man, a man of a big heart who is always finding ways to return the love showered upon him by people. Many of his best performances have not received the national award, like, Sankhochil, Maner Manush, and Jatishwar, for which he has no animosity against anyone. According to him, it is more satisfying to know that his works are appreciated more by society than by the jury. 


7. Ageless Superstar

It is almost impossible to believe this man will turn 62 this year. Still, at 61, Prosenjit is perhaps at his handsome best. It seems Prosenjit has reversed the cycle of aging. With his youthful evergreen looks, he looks better now than in the inception years of his career. The secret to his ever-youth looks, perhaps is his obsession with keeping himself fit and lean, and the most unbelievable part is that he eats nothing.


8. A Ladies’ Man

When you are in West Bengal, there is no such person who does not know Prosenjit Chatterjee. When it comes to women, Prosenjit is their darling. His charismatic personality, and his onscreen chemistry with the female actors in the movie, made the female fans go weak in their knees. He oozes enigma, elegance, and charm that enchant not only the females but also the men. The women go gaga over Prosenjit Chatterjee, and there is no doubt about it.
