One of Bengal’s most celebrated actors, Soumitra Chatterjee, passed away at the age of 85.
The late actor tested positive for COVID-19 last month and was taken to hospital. The hospital said in a statement, “We declare with heavy heart that Shri Soumitra Chattopadhyay breathed his last at 12.15 pm at Belle Vue Clinic today (15 November 2020). We pay our homage to his soul.”
Even after the actor tested negative a little after a week on October 14 but he remained admitted as he had health complications, especially COVID-19 induced encephalopathy.
On October 25, Dr Arindam Kar, who was leading the medical team treating Mr Chatterjee, said: “You all know he is not keeping well. His consciousness, despite all our efforts, is not improving. Rather it has gone down.”
