Jeet (Bengali: জিৎ) (born Jeetendra Madnani on 30 November 1978) is a Bengali film actor, producer and television presenter from Kolkata, India.[1] Jeet began his acting career in 2002 with the film Saathi directed by Haranath Chakraborty, where he played the lead role for which he received the BFJA - Most Promising Actor Award for his performance in Saathi (2002). Followed by films Champion (2003), Naater Guru (2003), Shongee (2003), Premi (2004), Bondhon (2004), Juddho (2005), Hero (2006), Neel Akaser Chadni (2009), Wanted (2010), Josh (2010), Dui Prithibi (2010), Fighter (2011), Shotru (2011), 100% Love (2012), Awara (2012), Deewana (2013), Boss (2013),he has established himself as one of the biggest superstars in Tollywood.He is the richest celebrity of Tollywood Bangala.

Early life[edit]

As a child he studied at Andhra association school in shah nagar road kolkata, St. Joseph & Mary's School, New Alipore later in National High School, Hazra Road and completed his graduation from the Bhawanipur Education Society College of the University of Calcutta. However, his academic life was interrupted soon after for joining his family business.[2] Nevertheless, he had a renewed interest for Creative Art since his early days. He enjoyed watching dramas and movies. Sometimes he would try the styles and mannerisms of leading stars on himself. His friends insisted him to try his luck in Creative World.


Jeet started with modelling assignments and then shifted to serials like Bishabriksha in 1994-95 directed by Bishnu Palchaudhuri in which he played Taracharan, Janani[disambiguation needed] by Bishnu Palchaudhuri in which he played Anil and Daughters of the Century by Tapan Sinha in which he was cast in the roles of Champiya and Kadambini. In order to pursue a career in acting, Jeet left for Mumbai. He stayed there for five years without getting the breakthrough that he was looking for.

In a vacation back in Kolkata, he started meeting directors and producers. In the meanwhile, to pursue his acting, he became associated with an organization called the Prosenium Art Centre. It was at this time that he acted in two English dramas - 'Arms and the Man' and 'Man at the Floor'. Thereafter he left for Mumbai again. He started giving regular auditions over there. In this process he came to meet a producer from South India who cast him in the Telugu film Chandu, which was released in 2001. However, the film did not manage to garner him the kind of plaudits he needed to increase his acting cache in a dramatic manner.

In October 2001 when he was back to Kolkata once again he suddenly he received a call from Haranath Chakraborty to come up and meet him at NT1 Studio. The shooting of Sathi commenced from 15 January 2002 and with that film Jeet made a big splash on Bengali screen. The film created box office records. The youth of Bengal went crazy with the new avatar of a Bengali hero. Jeet's simple yet powerful acting appealed across masses. Though initially he mainly played romantic characters, he soon expanded his acting skills and successfully transformed into an action hero. In 2005, a special Durja Puja campaign of Thums Up launched Jeet as their brand ambassador in West Bengal. The ad was enormously popular in regional channels and remains one of the most loved Bengali ads to date. However, Jeet was not a newbee to ads. A relatively small budget ad of a regional brand of men's innerwear had jeet in the lead. That was in the mid-1990s. The ad showed him in a not-so-prevalent-then sexy macho masculine avatar, together with a raunchy female model on a bike. The ad still remains a remembered ad for its outrageous appeal during those days. In 2012 he became a successful producer with his Blockbuster hit movie named 100% Love. His second film in 2012 was Awara, which has broken all the records in the history of Bengali cinema. His next project was Boss with Subhasree Ganguly which in turn is a remake of Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu's blockbuster movie Businessman and was released in 2013. The film is directed by Baba Yadav under the banner of Reliance Entertainment and declared Super hit at box office along with highest opener film in Tollywood film industry. Now he will pack with Abir chatterjee and Shardda das in Neeraj Pandey's The Royal Bengal Tiger and Baba Yadav's Game.His next Film is Bachchan, releases on 15TH Aug, 2014.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Jeet married Mohana Ratlani, a school teacher from Lucknow on 24 January 2011.[4] He became the father of a baby girl on 12 December 2012. His baby's name is Navanya.
