Kolkata: Bengali Noted Actress Lolita Chatterjee Passes Away on Wednesday. Bengali Noted Actress Lolita Chatterjee Passes Away on Wednesday. The actress admitted to a private hospital on Tuesday after suffering from a brain stroke. She reportedly breathed her last on Wednesday.
Lolita Debi debut Bengali film Bibhas was with screen idol Uttam Kumar in 1964, and after appearing in a few more productions, she moved to Mumbai.
She starred in a series of popular stage productions in the ’70s and early ’80s alongside the odd Bengali movie, and faded out of view until she was rediscovered by Goutam Ghose for Shunyo Awnko in 2013. Chatterjee has performed in Arindam Sil’s upcoming Aaschhe Abar Shabor and plays the lead in Aditya Vikram Sengupta’s Jonaki.
Sengupta’s dialogue-free debut Asha Jaoar Majhe (2014) was the toast of the festival circuit, and his second movie is an unorthodox drama about an elderly woman’s reminiscences of her past.
