    4 Bengali star. Started as radio announcer. Trained as actor under Ahindra Choudhury while still a student. Wrote, directed and acted in plays like Rajkumar and Naam Jiban. Also a poet and initiator of one of Bengal’s best- known literary journals, Ekshan, which he co- edited with Nirmalya Acharya. With Uttam Kumar the major 60s and 70s star of Bengali film. Début with Ray’s Apur Sansar; has thereafter remained associated with Ray, and was described by Pauline Kael as his ‘one-man stock company’. Chidananda Das Gupta (Talking About Films, 1981) suggested Ray cast him so often because of a distinct physical resemblance to the young Tagore. Repeated aspects of his most famous Ray role in Charulata as a leitmotiv in Kapurush and Aranyer Din Ratri, of the brash but insecure hero. Also played the detective Felu in children’s films (Sonar Kella, Joi Baba Felunath) and several ‘character’ roles, including the rough taxi driver in Abhijaan and the famine-stricken Brahmin in Ashani Sanket. The hit Jhinder Bandi featured a rare joint appearance with Uttam Kumar (they also did Stree together). Other major roles in Tapan Sinha’s Kshudista Pashan, Mrinal Sen’s Akash Kusum, several Ajoy Kar films (Saat Pake Bandha, Kanch Kata Hirey) and Majumdar’s Sansar Simantey and Ganadevata. Since Ghare Baire spent more time on the stage and doing poetry readings. Published Swagato, an antholology of essays on cinema, theatre and acting (1996).
