kolkata Updated: May 24, 2010 21:51 IST

Veteran Bengali actor Tapen Chattopadhyay, who became a household name among the Bengali speaking population for his performances as Goopy in Satyajit Ray's Goopy-Bagha series of films, died at his residence on Monday following respiratory failure.

Chattopadhyay, 72, shot into the limelight after playing the role of Goopy Gyne in Ray's classic Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne (The Adventures of Goopy and Bagha), which was equally liked by children and adults and became a huge commercial success.

Apart from the Goopy-Bagha series, Chattopadhyay showed his acting prowess in several Bengali box-office hits and was also a powerful stage actor.
