Jeet has been trained in both Indian and Western classical music. Absorbing the best of these two streams of music, Jeet today is a successful music director in Mumbai.
Jeet got his first break when Sanjay Gadhvi
was signed on to direct Tere Liye
and he, in turn, signed on his friends Jeet and Pritam as music composers. In 2002 Yash Raj Films
signed Gadhvi up to direct Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai
, for which the Jeet-Pritam duo once again composed the music. All the songs from that movie were hits.
After the duo parted ways, Jeet has started scoring music for Hindi and Bengali films, TV serials and jingles.
