Jisshu Sengupta, popularly known as Jisshu, is an Indian actor and television presenter. Though his real name is Biswaroop Sengupta, he is more famous as Jisshu, his pet name. He is the son of Ujjwal Sengupta, also an actor in Bengali films. His mother, Mukta Sengupta, was a homemaker and a wedding planner. Jisshu has an elder sister, Satarupa (Rai) Sengupta, who was previously married (now divorced) to Anindya Bose, the lead singer for the Bengali band Sahar. Initially, Jisshu was a cricketer, who represented Bengal in some sub junior games. But he was more keen to make a career in the Bengali film industry. He got his first break in a mega serial, Mahaprabhu, as the lead character, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. He is a popular figure in contemporary Bengali television. He has recently (June 2011) made a comeback on Bengali television, with the megaserial Aparajito, which is being produced by his own company, Blue Water pictures, and is possibly the very first serial based on a male protagonist.

Jisshu has worked with renowned directors like Shyam Benegal (in Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose: The Forgotten Hero), Rituparno Ghosh (in The Last Lear (in which the co-actor was Amitabh Bachchan), Shob Charitro Kalponik, Chitrangada: The Crowning Wish and Abohoman), Aparna Sen (in Arshinagar) and with Gautam Ghose in Abar Aranye. He has also appeared in Bollywood films like Barfi!, Mardaani and Piku.

Jisshu is captain of the Bengal Tigers T20 team in the Indian Celebrity Cricket League. His half century in the match against the Kerala Strikers was well appreciated. Jisshu is also an anchor on Bengali television.

Personal life[edit]

Jisshu's wife Nilanjana Sharma, whom he married in 2004, is the elder daughter of Anjana Bhowmick, another Bengali film actress in the Bengali film industry; her debut Bengali film was Swapner Feriwala (2002), directed by Subrata Sen.[1][2]
