Legendary actress Suchitra Sen died in Belle Vue Hospital in Kolkata at around 8.30 am today. She was suffering from COPD for a long time and was in the hospital since December 23. She was taken to the ITU after her condition deteriorated on December 27th. Suchitra Sen was famous for her pairing with matinee idol Uttam Kumar from the fifties to the seventies of the last century. Though she was famous for her acting in Bengali films, she showed her acting skills in Bollywood movies too. She acted opposite famous icons such as Dev Anand, Dharmendra and Sanjeev Kumar in Bollywood. Her last film was rather controversial ‘Aandhi’ where she played the role of a politician. For the past three decades after leaving the films, she decided not to even step out in public and remained out of public view. No one had seen her after that till her death.
