JEET



Born: November 30, 1978

Spouse: Mohona Ratlani (m. 2011)



Jeet (Jeetendra Madnani) is an Indian film actor, producer and television presenter who predominantly works in Tollywood. He started as a model and then shifted to TV serials like Bishabriksha, Janani and Daughters of the Century. He made his cinematic debut in Chandu, which released to negative reviews and received poor response at the box office.

Jeet's first success came in 2002, opposite to Priyanka Trivedi, through Sathi, a highly successful romantic drama directed by Haranath Chakraborty for which he won Bengal Film Journalists' Association – Most Promising Actor Award and Anandalok Awards for Best Actor. In the same year, he acted in the Bengali remake of Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar. This initial success was followed by other critical and commercial success, including Nater Guru, Sangee, Bandhan, Yuddho. In 2005, he acted alongside Koel Mallick in Nater Guru, which released to critical and commercial success and fetched him his second Anandalok Awards for Best Actor. This success was short-lived as Jeet starred in some commercial failures, including Saathihara, Priyotoma, Ghatak but this failure was too short-lived as Jeet starred in Jor, which became a box office hit.

2010 proved to be a commercially successful year for Jeet as he starred in Ravi Kinagi directed Wanted (2010 film) and Raj Chakraborty directed Dui Prithibi, both of which were critically and commercially ventures; the latter being the highest grosser of 2010, according to a study conducted by FICCI & Deloitte. In 2013, he appeared in the crime thriller Boss: Born to Rule, which was Jeet's first pan-India release. The film proved to be one of the biggest hits of 2013, grossing ₹6.75 crore (US$1.0 million) and also earned him his first Filmfare Awards East nomination.

From 2014 to 2016, he has starred in many films, including four critically and commercially successful ventures- the psychological thriller The Royal Bengal Tiger (film), the comedy thriller Bachchan (2014 film), the action comedy Badsha The Don and more recently the action drama Abhimaan.

In television, he appeared on several reality shows and also hosted some, including Koti Takar Baaji and Bigg Boss Bangla.
