Soumitra Chatterjee dies at 85
Soumitra Chatterjee was an actor who never appeared in a Bollywood film, in spite of lucrative offers
When the news came of Soumitra Chatterjee’s passing, I sent a message to all my WhatsApp groups (and 80% of the members are not Bengalis, but many are film lovers). It was: “Is there anyone who doesn’t love him?" There was no reply other than expressions of grief.
