Aka Narendranath Sanyal born in Da~eeling. Joined New Theatres 0931) and became one of its main stars. A trained musician with a diploma from Morris College, Lucknow. Worked as private secretary of the Raja of Avadh. Started mainly as a singing star in early Atorthy, Barua and Debaki Bose films, often accompanying K..L. Saigal (e.g. Devdas). His most famous music of this period was in Adbikar: the song Suhag ki raat set to Baran's music. Featured in several romantic hero roles, bur later found his metier in classic biographicals (e.g. Modhu Bose's Mahakavi Girishchandra) drawn from literary melodrama and creating a new, more lasting 'character' image in Bengali films for 40 years. The crucial transition took place in Bombay, where he moved in 1942, in films likeJaswantlal's Kadambari and Nitin Bose's Milan. Acted in Satyajit Rays Kanchanjungba as Jagdish, the man interested more in watching birds than in the material machinations of the family, and inAran,yer Din Ratri, where he sang a haunting Atulprasad Sen lyric as the old retired singer Sadasib Tripathi.
