Soumitra Chatterjee received the Best Supporting Actor Award for 'Angshumaner Chhobi' at the 54th Asia Pacific Film Festival in Taiwan. As he couldnt attend the festival due to illness, the award was sent to his residence yesterday.
Soumitra Chatterjee can truly be described as the living legend of Bangla Cinema. Having started out with the films of Satyajit Ray, and having starred in umpteen films that merit distinction both for their content and his individual performance, the stalwart has contributed more than anyone else to Bangla Cinema. Here's wishing him good health and a happy life.
