In remembrance of Suchitra Sen

Programmes held in her hometown on 88th birth anniversary

Suchitra Sen, legendary actress in Bangla cinema, was remembered at her ancestral home in Pabna town, marking her 88th birth anniversary yesterday.

The district administration in cooperation with Suchitra Sen Smrity Sangrakkhan Parishad organised different programmes at her Gopalpur Hem Sagor Lane ancestral home.

In the morning, district administration organised a cake festival and placed bouquets of flowers at her statue at the venue.

Among others, Pabna Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Jasim Uddin, Superintendent of Police Mohammad Rafikul Islam, Suchitra Sen Smrity Sangrakkhan Parishad organiser Dr Ram Dulal Voumik and journalist Akhteruzzaman, attended the programme.

Suchitra Sen Smrity Sangrakkhan Parishad brought out a colourful rally in the town and later organised a film screening followed by a discussion.

Born on April 6, 1931, at Bangabari in Sirajganj, Suchira Sen spent her early life in Gopalpur Hem Sagor Lane in Pabna town and soon after the partition, in 1947, her family migrated to Kolkata.

The screen legend passed away on January 17 in 2014 in Kolkata.

Following a High Court order, Suchitra's historic house at Hem Sagor Lane was freed from illegal occupiers on July 16, 2016 and later, Pabna district administration established a museum there.

“People of Pabna want a film archive at her ancestral home,” Suchitra Sen Smrity Sangrakkhan Parishad General Secretary Noresh Modhu said.
