Sabitri Chatterjee (b. 1937)

Bengali actress born in Comilla (now Bangladesh). Migrated to Calcutta at an early age; joined films as an extra, usually in dance sequences (e.g. Anuraag, Alladdin-o- Ashcharya Pradeep), while doing realistic theatre (e.g. Salil Sen’s Natun Yahudi, 1951, filmed in 1953). Début as lead actress in Pasher Bari. Following Nirmal Dey’s Basu Parivar and Niren Lahiri?’s Subhadra, gained a reputation for comedy. Developed, along with actresses like Anubha Gupta and Manju Dey, an unorthodox style departing from the melodramatic mode of 40s Bengali film heroines. Also worked on stage, e.g. in Adarsha Hindu Hotel (with Bhanu Bannerjee and Dhiraj Bhattacharya) and in Shyamali (with Uttam Kumar). She starred with Uttam Kumar in 60s films (e.g. Bhranti Bilas). Acted in early Mrinal Sen films (Raat Bhore, Abasheshe) and produced his Pratinidhi.
