Samrat Mukerji is playing the role of Ganesh Ghosh in Ashutosh Gowariker's Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey. His character as a freedom fighter from Chittagong who is against the injustice of British rule whilst striving for India's freedom struggle along with Surya Sen. Samrat is the only Bengali actor to be cast by Ashutosh in this movie. Samrat changed his diet and work out pattern to give a different look to the character in the movie. Samrat is tremendously excited about playing the role of Ganesh Ghosh. When Samrat met Ashutosh he told Samrat that he was perfectly right for the role and Samrat was the first actor signed by Ashutosh. Samrat is already acquainted with the glamour world with his first cousins, Kajol, Rani Mukerji, and Sharbani all in the family and he hails from the great Sashadhar Mukherjee lineage. Samrat has previously done Bengali films - Tapasya, Kaka No. 1, opposite Rituparna Sengupta and Preyoshi opposite Pauli Dam. His other upcoming movie Footpath is also lined up for release. Let’s hope KHJJS works its magic for Samrat in Hindi films too!
