Legendary filmmaker Mrinal Sen passes away.

Posted on : Sunday 30th of December 2018

One of the most prolific filmmakers in the country and the pioneer of new wave cinema in India, Mrinal Sen passed away on Sunday morning due to age-related ailments. He was 95. He reportedly died of heart attack at around 10:30 am at his residence in Bhowanipore. His wife passed away last year and is survived by his son Kunal Sen who stays in Chicago.

The caretaker who was looking after him informed the media about his death. “A doctor called was in after his health deteriorated. The doctor pronounced him dead. He suffered a cardio respiratory failure. As per his wish, his body will not be kept anywhere. His body will be kept in a mortuary and we will await the return of his son. Further decisions will be taken after Kunal’s return,” the caretaker told reporters outside Sen’s residence.

The National Award-winning director and recipient of Padma Bhusan award was not keeping well for some years and had withdrawn from public life. He had also been conferred with Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2003, besides receiving awards from several film festivals across the world for his films.

Along with his contemporaries Satyajit Ray and Ritwik Ghatak, he is often considered to be one of the greatest ambassadors of Bengali parallel cinema on the global stage.
