Description:  Pritam Chakraborty, better known as Pritam, is a music director and composer from Kolkata who currently works in Bollywood, Mumbai. Pritam was born into a Bengali family to Prabodh Chakraborty, who runs a music school for children.

Having completed his education, Pritam Chakraborty moved to Mumbai to pursue a career in Bollywood. During his stay in Mumbai, he began composing ad jingles. Pritam got his first break when Gadhvi was signed on to direct Tere Liye and he, in turn, signed on his friends Jeet and Pritam as music composers. However, in 2002 Yashraj 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. His music comprises various kinds including Indian classical music and western influences. Pritam was then actively involved in mentoring and judging new talent on Zee TV's singing competition show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2009. After the separation with Jeet, Pritam's career as a solo musician stalled as he signed a series of flops like Fun2shh... Dudes in the 10th Century. Pritam followed up the success of Dhoom with a string of successful numbers after a year for Chocolate, Garam Masala and Gangster. Also he composed the music for Dhoom 2, the sequel to Dhoom and Life In A... Metro. He composed the music for Singh Is Kinng and Kismat Konnection and formed a band named Metro. He also composed the track for Hrithik Roshan's TV debut, Just Dance. Sourced from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pritam)
