    7 Bengali comedian, born in Dhaka (now Bangladesh). Political activist associated with the terrorist group Anushilan in the Dhaka Dist., and after the Quit India movement with the Revolutionary Socialist Party. Later founded the Kranti Shilpi Sangha with writer (later film- maker) Salil Sen, staging the latter’s landmark play Natun Yahudi (1951, filmed 1953) about East Bengal refugees for fund-raising and propaganda on their behalf in Calcutta. Briefly a government employee and then a film extra (Jagran). Broke through playing the voluble East Bengali businessman in Nirmal Dey’s Basu Parivar, developing his trade mark: an idiosyncratic use of East Bengali dialect. One of Bengali film’s most prolific comic actors, often partnering Jahar Roy. The duo were sometimes billed in the titles themselves (e.g. Bhanu Pelo Lottery, Bhanu Goenda Jahar Assistant). Continued as stage actor, e.g. Adarsha Hindu Hotel (1953) and esp. in Star Theatre productions (e.g. Shamoli, Tapasi, Parineeta, Dak Bungalow). Directed the play Jai Mahakali Boarding (1979). Associated with folk Jatra companies Sushil Natya and Mukta Mancha.
