Renowned actress Geeta Sen, wife of celebrated filmmaker Mrinal Sen, died in her residence here on Monday after a month-long illness. She was 86.

She leaves behind her famed husband and only son Kunal.

A month back, she had suffered cerebral hemorrhage, which robbed her power of speech and made her bed ridden.

Known for her excellent portrayal of character roles, she had acted in a number of films including “Chorus”, “Calcutta 71”, “Kharij”, “Akaler Sandhane”, “Ekdin Pratidin” and “Khandahar”.
