    4 Actor born in Calcutta. Major Calcutta Theatres stage star launched with key role of Arjun in epochal production of Karnarjun at Star Theatre (1923). Stagework in e.g. Iraner Rani, Bandini, Chirakumar Sabha, Mishar Rani etc. had impact comparable to that of Sisir Bhaduri, who had a similar career. Early films at Madan Theatres, usually by Jyotish Bannerjee who continued to direct him into the talkie era, included stage successes like Mishar Rani and Karnarjun. At Madan also filmed scenes from his stage plays in early sound experiments. In 1928 attempted, unsuccessfully, to start the Ahindra Film Studio at Ultadanga, North Calcutta. Then directed some Telugu films for Aurora (Ansuya, Vipranarayana). Was a regular genre actor in Bengali cinema, notably in films by Sailajananda Mukherjee, P.C. Barua and Modhu Bose, until he retired in mid-50s. Wrote a two-volume autobiography, Nijere Haraye Khunji (1945). His collection of theatre and film memorabilia forms the Ahindra Choudhury Archives at Chetla, Calcutta.
