Since 2003 with Rituparno Ghosh's Chokher Bali (Co-starring Aishwarya Rai and Raima Sen) he has acted in numerous films that had won critical acclaim . In 2007 he received the National Award Silver Lotus for his performance in Dosar. He has acted in over 279 films as on October 2009. The only son of Biswajeet, the actor from Tollygunge who carved a niche in Hindi cinema in the 1960s, Prosenjit made his debut when he was just four years old in his father’s production Chhotto Jignasa (The Tiny Question). The film was a big hit and little Boomba’s fresh and natural performance warmed the cockles of every heart in house-full theatres way back in 1967. It was back to school after that. In between, his parents split, Biswajeet settled in Mumbai and at age of Sixteen, Prosenjit was left with the responsibility of his family consisting of his mother and little sister Pallavi Chatterjee, now an actress in her own right.
