Biswajeet (Indian Film Actor)



Biswajeet was born in Calcutta, West Bengal, but later went over to Bombay to do some memorable Hindi films.

Biswajeet started his career in 1960 with the Bengali film, 'Natun Fasal'. Earlier, in spite of family oppositions, young Biswajeet played a tiny role in a Bengali film “Dak Harakara”.

After a couple of hit films in Calcutta like 'Mayamrigo' and 'Dui Bhai' , Biswajeet went to Bombay. In 1962, he catapulted to fame with his superhit film, Bees Saal Baad.

Biswajeet wide-eyed innocence worked in his favour. A good film with a powerful script, suspense and good, haunting 'Kahin Deep Jale Kahin Dil' music 'Bees Saal Baad' was a hit. He already had a career in Bengali films where his first film was 'Kangsa'. However, he made a niche for himself in the light romantic films popular in those days. These films include 'Bin Badal Barsaat', 'Kaise Kahoon', 'Mere Sanam', 'Shehnai', 'Do Dil' , 'Yeh Raat Phir Naa Ayegi' , 'April Fool' , 'Do Kaliyan' , 'Sharaarat' and 'Night in London'. Shammi Kapoor was the king of this genre of films but there were more films than he could do alone. The rest went to Biswajeet. They even shared the heroines: Saira Bano, Rajshri, Mumtaz, Mala Sinha, Sharmila Tagore and Asha Parekh. His films often had popular soundtracks, causing the films, and Biswajeet, to become even better-known.

Biswajeet found himself on the cover of 'Life' thanks to Rekha, his co-star in 'Do Shikari' and 'Anjana Safar'. Biswajeet had to kiss Rekha in a scene and the director, Raja Nawathe forgot to say 'cut' and they went on and on till the unit started clapping. It was this kiss that was featured on the cover. An average actor, Biswajeet ultimately found himself being relegated to play sidey actors. Biswajeet tried his hand at direction with 'Kahtey Hain Mujhko Raja' but it did not impress the viewers. The film did moderately well at the box office. Later he went back to acting.

In between acting in Bollywood movies, Biswajit kept going back to Calcutta to act in Bengali films, like the superhit Chowringhee with Uttam Kumar and much later, 'Srimaan Prithviraj' and 'Baba Taraknath' .

Biswajeet has been married twice and has three children. He has a son and a daughter from his late first wife. His son Prasenjit is a superstar in Bengal and has been the number one star of Bengali cinema for more than a decade now. His elder daughter, Pallabi Chatterjee, is a lesser known film and television actress.

Biswajeet currently lives in Bombay with his second wife and their daughter Shambhavi.
