End of an era

BY jasmine, Nov 17, 2020 12:22 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

Bollywood mourned the demise of legendary Bengali actor and Dada Saheb Phalke Award winner Soumitra Chatterjee.

Conveying his condolences to the family of the late actor on Twitter, actor Anil Kapoor called him 'a legend and an inspiration'.

By sharing a picture of the iconic duo- filmmaker Satyajit Ray and Chatterjee, veteran actor Raj Babbar wrote on Twitter in Hindi: "Soumitra Chatterjee was a veteran actor who has passed away today. He started his acting journey from Satyajit Roy's 'Apur Sansar' and an award like Dada Saheb Phalke Award is the example of his acting skills and his ease while delivering them. While performing the characters, he used to forget everything. Saumitra da, will miss you very much."

Chatterjee, 85, passed away on Sunday afternoon.

He was admitted to the hospital, after being tested positive for COVID-19.

Soumitra Chatterjee was known for his collaborations with Oscar-winning film director Satyajit Ray.
