Jeet goes by the name of Chandrajeet Ganguly. Born of a distinguished family with a rich cultural heritage in North Kolkata, Jeet was initiated into the world of Sur, Laya and Taal at a tender age of three. Jeet has been trained in both Indian and Western classical music. Absorbing the best of these two streams of music, Jeet today is a successful music director in Mumbai.
Jeet got his first break when Sanjay Gadhvi was signed on to direct Tere Liye and he, in turn, signed on his friends Jeet and Pritam as music composers. In 2002 Yash Raj Films signed Gadhvi up to direct Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, for which the Jeet-Pritam duo once again composed the music. All the songs from that movie were chartbusters, and the duo had hit the big time.
After the duo parted ways, Jeet has started scoring music for Hindi and Bengali films, TV serials and jingles, with the unbeatable combination of melody and new age sounds.
