Suchitra Sen

Suchitra Sen or Rama Dasgupta 6 April 1931 – 17 January 2014), was an Indian actress


who acted in several Bengali films that mainly concentrated in the regions of Bengal and Bangladesh.
In particular, the movies in which she paired opposite another legend in Bengali films, Uttam Kumar, became classics in the history of Bengali cinema.

She became first Indian actress to be awarded at an international film festival when she won Best Actress award for Saat Paake Bandha at the 1963 Moscow film festival. She was awarded the Padma Shri in 1972 by Government of India. Notably, she allegedly refused the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2005, preferring to stay out of the public eye. In 2012, Sen was conferred West Bengal government`s highest award Banga Bibhushan.

Sen was born in Pabna in present day Pabna District of Bangladesh, on 6 April 1931. Her father Karunamoy Dasgupta was the headmaster of the local school and her mother Indira Devi was a homemaker. She was their fifth child and third daughter. She had her formal education in Pabna.

Sen made a successful entry after marriage into Bengali films in 1952 and then a less successful transition to the Bollywood film industry. According to some unconfirmed but persistent reports in the Bengali press, her marriage was severely strained by her success in the film industry.

She died at a hospital (Belle View Clinic) in Kolkata on 17 January 2014 at 8:25 a.m., of a heart attack. She had been admitted due to chronic chest infection.
