    Raja Ganguly is considered to be one of the most tragic figure of Bengali silver screen. From the reputed director Tapan Sinha’s autobiography we know about Raja’s tragic short-spelled film career. Young Raja was very much promising and had well built figure with beautiful eyes. Also he had a good voice and could sing well. He was over 6’ tall.

    Director Bimal Roy selected him for his movie Anjangarh. He was also trained horse riding for the movie. Since there was a scene of polo game in the movie. However just before going to shoot the outdoor scene in Dhanbad his left hand was broken. However without dummy he himself shoot the scene for the movie with broken hand. Tapan Sinha was working as an assistant sound recordist at New Theatres during those days. Later he reminisced that he had hardly seen the eye expression in any other Indian actor’s performance as was casted by Raja during the polo shoot.

    However, after Anjangarh Sinha left New Theatres and joined the newly constructing Calcutta Movietone studio. Raja got another contract of a movie which was going to shoot at Calcutta Movietone. In the mean time Raja bought a second hand car and unfortunately bursting the petrol can he caught severely burnt. In hospital he died. That was the year of 1948.
