Prosenjit Chatterjee made his debut as hero in Duti Pata (1983), a teenage romance along the lines of Bobby. The film filled a vacuum in Bengali cinema through its look and mounting, distanced from stereotypical Bangla films of the time. It turned out to be a super-duper hit and, overnight, Prosenjit Chatterjee found stardom thrust on him.

Amar Shangi (1987) opposite Vijayeta Pandit, Apon Amaar Apon (1990) directed by Tarun Majumdar and Buddhadeb Dasgupta’s Ami, Yaseen Aar Amaar Madhubala (2007) are the three outstanding films of his career. The song "Chirodini Tumi Je Amar" from Amar Shangi remains a hot favourite among lovers of Bengali music. In fact, Amar Shangi was his turning-point film. Prosenjit did not have to look back after that.

Prosenjit made an attempt to make it in Bollywood in 1990 when he played the role of Mumtaz's son in her disastrous comeback film Aandhiyan. It was directed by David Dhawan. The film disappeared without a trace. But this did not stop Prosenjit Chatterjee from playing the hero in the Mehul Kumar directed Meet Mere Man Ke (1991) alongside Ayesha Jhulka, Feroz Khan and Salma Agha. This, too, was a disaster after which Prosenjit decided to come back to his roots, choosing to become numero uno in his home state rather than becoming a bit-star doing secondary roles in Bollywood films. After 21 years he made a comeback to Bollywood in Dibakar Banerjee's Shanghai.

One of the best works of Prosenjit is as Arun Chatterjee in Srijit Mukherjee's Autograph. His first ever produced film Bapi Bari Jaa hit the theatres on 7 December 2012.
