Satyajit Ray’s Jana Aranya actor Pradip Mukherjee passes away at age 76

Veteran Bengali actor Pradip Mukherjee passed away on Monday at 8:15 a.m. in a hospital in Kolkata. He was 76. He was transferred to a state-run hospital after his condition worsened three days ago after being taken to a private hospital for a lung infection.

In addition to his wife, Pradip Mukherjee leaves behind a son and a daughter. He had nearly 40 film appearances, including his breakout performance in Satyajit Ray’s Jana Aranya. He played Somnath, the main character, in the movie. His other publications include Mondo Meyer Upakshan (2002) by Buddhadeb Dasgupta and Rituparno Ghosh’s Hirer Angti (1992), among others. Torulatar Bhoot, his most recent release, came in 2021.

Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, expressed her sadness over Pradip Mukherjee’s passing in a statement on the news of his passing. He had contributed to the films Jana Aranya by Satyajit Ray, Utsav by Rituparno Ghosh, and Dooratwa by Buddhadeb Dasgupta. His passing left a large vacuum.

“Pradip Mukherjee had been discovered by my father in a Bengali stage production and he decided to cast him in Jana Aranya,” filmmaker Sandip Rau, Satyajit Ray’s son, told PTI. He gave a great performance. He truly wished the Ray family well. We suffered a family loss.

Sumbul Touqeer is overjoyed that Fahmaan Khan has been accepted as a wildcard for Bigg Boss 16

A promo of the upcoming episode of Bigg Boss 16 was released by ColorsTV on Thursday. Sumbul Touqeer will be seen criticising Shalin Bhanot and Tina Datta for not leaving him alone. Fahmaan Khan will also enter the house as a ‘wildcard entry’.

In the first promo, Shalin told Sumbul in the presence of other contestants not to talk to him and Tina. “Why the f*** is she talking to us,” Shaleen said while kicking a table inside the living room. Responding to him, Sumbul said, “Tumse kab ayi baat karne main”.

Tina and Shalin were seen arguing with Sumbul’s father in latest episode of Bigg Boss 16. Tina said, “Mera character assassination kar rahe hain (he is assassinating my character)”. The other contestants were seen trying to calm down Sumbul who was visibly shaken.

Many social media users reacted to the video, with one saying that Tina has been playing a dirty game from day one. The channel said that Tina had herself started the rumour about liking Shaleen. A fan wrote that Tina did not think about the character assassination of others, why is she feeling so bad for herself now? “What about all the times when Sambul’s character assassination was done by Tina?” another fan asked in another post on social media site Twitter.
