Sashadhar Mukerji was the Monarch of Musical Marvels with an impressive track record of successful musicals ranging from Bandhan, Jhoola, Kismat (as the Producer for Bombay Talkies). Known for his Bengali charms and good looks, Sashadhar Mukherjee rose to the pinnacle of fame as one most successful & intelligent producers.

He started his career with Bombay Talkies in the 1930s, and later established Filmistan Studio which was later joined by Rai Bahadur Chunilal, Ashok Kumar and Gyan Mukherjee in 1943. In the 1959s he went on to start his independent studio, Filmalaya.

Leader and Sambandh respectively...

He gave breaks to many actors like Ashok  Kumar. Dilip Kumar. Shammi Kapoor. Joy . Asha Parekh. Sadhana. I. S. Johar. S. D. Burma. Hemant Kumar. & many stars; Directors & Technicians.

S. Mukerji never believed in awards. He only believed in the Box Office. He was awarded the Filmfare award for Jagruti. He never went to receive the award because he never believed in it & the awards were manipulated. Today - this trend of not receiving the award is followed by Aamir Khan & others.

Gyan Mukherjee had died during the Filmistan days. When Filmalaya started Gyan was not alive. RAM MUKERJI - whom S. Mukerji brought up like his own son - he helped  S. Mukerji to start Filmalaya in 1959.

S. Mukerji never made Films. He made institutes. He made films for people who desired to be STAR. Directors. Music Directors. Writers. Lyricists. Cameramen.
